  • 2007 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave St. Joseph

    Nose like walking in to a flower shop where someone is cooking bacon while a dish of tapenade is passed under your nose. Then, a mouthful of perfectly ripe black fruit, smooth, dusty tannins, and just the right amount of acidity to focus the long, long, dry finish. All the components are there in the right amounts to give this the promise of a mellowing, long life, but I really like this right now while it is still fresh, a bit vibrant and has an interesting edge or two.

  • 2012 Carlisle Zinfandel Montafi Ranch

    The nose is a bit reticent but with some vigorous swirling I get some red and black fruit and spices. The palate is a big mouthful of ripe plums, tart blueberries and blackberries, in a creamy package with a hint of smooth tannin on the finish, then a touch of acidity to keep everything focused. Nice wine that I enjoyed so much the remaining 2 bottles may not make it to their third birthday.

  • 2001 Château Haut-Brion

    Decanted at 1PM, re-bottled and took to dinner at 6PM. Had this with a rare steak. I was expecting more even though 2001 isn't one of the 4 or 5 vintages of the century in the 2000's. With a lot of swirling I got some dark fruit, tobacco and minerals. Tannins were rounded but present on the finish. Decent acidity but just a bit lacking. I know it is still young but I had a few of these and wanted to try it. Hopefully just in a dump phase as I really wanted to like it but just wasn't very impressed.
