  • 2005 Concha y Toro Carménère Terrunyo Peumo Vineyard Block 27

    On pop and pour started off a bit closed on the nose and with a slightly bitter finish. After about 1 hour in the glass, it really came alive. Pretty fruit with a gorgeousl earthy overlay. Reminded me of a N. Rhone for some reason. Dryer than I expected, yet everyone really enjoyed it. This probably has a couple of years left in it to improve and will probably last another 5 after that. What a pleasant surprise! Went great with a rich NY steak.

  • 2004 The Seventy Five Wine Company Cabernet Sauvignon Amber Knolls Vineyard

    The wine had a bit of heat at pop and pour, but with 2 hours of decant, more fruit showed up to the party. Still a little alcoholic, but tasty in a VERY new world way. You have to be in the mood for this, as the fruit bombiness may overwhelm those looking for more restraint or balance. The tannins are silky and fine grained with just a couple hours of decant, but the heat still comes through. I should have cooled it a bit in the fridge.
    All said, not a bad wine for under $20, but should mainly appeal to those who are looking for Aussie style wines. It does have more complexity than I would have expected for the price.

  • 2004 Sbragia Family Chardonnay Gamble Ranch

    Way better than expected...even those who don't normally care for Chard enjoyed it. Had with pasta with lobster-saffron sauce. Tropical fruit with citrus, mainly lime, flavors. The best part of the wine is how well balanced it is. Enough weight and acidity and to have with a variety of rich white foods, yet not over the top fruit or oak. Still fresh and vibrant. Really well done and the age seems to have benefited it. Not cheap, but at around $30-40, a good QPR for a Chard. Delicious!
