    France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Côtes du Rhône

    This is a red and not a white. A great nose of caramel and fudge which then unfortunately did not deliver as I was in anticipation. The nose made me think of a top end Shiraz from Australia. It was thin and past its prime with a short finish.

    Clearly my favorite of the night as it was a classis bordeaux blend with clean chalk nose, fruits and green pepper. Good long finish - very drinkable now and smooth but not sure it will last in the cellar for too many more years?

  • 2005 Blaauwklippen Zinfandel 88 Points

    South Africa, Coastal Region

    Something not quite discernable on the nsoe. Light petroleum with a hint of dark fruit. Slightly acidic and light bodied. Characteristic for me of Blaauwklippen (on the thinner side and with acidity). Good finish with moderate tannins. Not something I would but to store in the cellar.
