  • 2011 Château Sainte-Eulalie Minervois-La Livinière La Cantilène

    Given the bright rim and rich colour it's surprisingly soft. Dark fruit on the nose, well balanced acidity and tannins. Nice length and holds its own. I suspect it will improve in a couple of years but no later. I've drunk half the bottle so far and expect it to have opened up by tomorrow when I hope it will disclose some more hints of what really lies behind this particular blend.

  • 2008 Tenuta dei Pianali Bolgheri Coronato

    A hint of a warm rim, good Bordeaux type aromas and strong rich red fruit. A substantial mouthful at first hit, full on fruit with good balance to the acidity. Long in length without any further development. This needs decanting to mute the sharp edges but time will certainly improve it, hopefully some secondary flavours will develop in a year or two - I need to return to this bottle overnight and see how it's changed and then return in a couple of years.

  • 2010 Viano Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

    No rim as yet. Fairly intense deep red colour. Jammy with a touch of alcohol. Good fruit and quite soft too, maybe having it open since last night has helped. Tannins are minimal with good balance on the mid palate. Surprisingly long with tannins staying in place. Some pleasant acidity hints at a wine to eat at the same time. Good balance, clearly not seen the best of it as this is an early window, I wonder if it will develop secondary flavours in a few years, only 3 bottles left so should wait a couple of years yet. I have minimal experience of American wines, just seen American Sniper too but whilst enjoying the film, surprised it's an Oscar nomination, shades of comparison here with the wine.
