  • 2013 Teutonic Wine Company Pinot Meunier Borgo Pass Vineyard

    This wine is very different from what I usually drink. Looks like rosewater, almost transparent in the glass. Drank it fairly cool (53 F) and thus not much on the approach. First impression: peach cider, strawberry. Solid integration of flavors, low to no tannins, not too sweet. I like it, but don't know what to make of it. Would definitely buy again, but from the reviews of other years, it may vary greatly from vintage to vintage.

  • 2005 Château Calon-Ségur

    decanted and let sit 90 minutes. gorgeous legs on the glass; deep earth, leather, wood on the approach; this wine did not open up on the palate even after 2+ hours. i fear we committed infanticide. however, it did have a solid foundation of berry, chocolate, more earthiness, and determined tannins on the front of the tongue. clearly a well-made wine which i would let age a few more years if i had another bottle.

  • 2007 Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino

    Received this wine at an office raffle. Don't know much about brunello, so wasn't sure what to expect. Opened and poured a glass then let the bottle and glasses sit for an hour before consuming the rest. First glass had a gorgeous ruby color and soft legs, shy fruity nose with a little vanilla and...rose? The tannins seemed to get stronger as we let it sit, which surprised me. Complex on the palate with both high and low notes, with the high notes winning out. A very well structured wine but not sure if it is high QPR which is why I only gave it eighty nine.
