Tight and dark with cherries and blueberries. Quite alcoholic and tannic. NR

    3/2/20, 7:55 AM - My notes weren’t off, nor was my palate, as I visited other wineries both before and after. If I need “knowledge” to enjoy their wines, then basically you are telling me I should ignore what I taste and give biased scores. Interesting.

    Finally, you accuse me of giving an incorrect score and then boast that you will be giving an incorrect score to offset mine. How hypocritical is that? Imagine if I said I would lower my score to 10 to offset your offset. That would be a selfish, idiotic thing to do, wouldn’t it? That’s why I would never think of doing something like that. Funny that you are so proud of your lack of integrity.

    How about you just worry about your own notes.

    You obviously have no idea what an extracted wine is if you think I have an affinity for them. Quite the opposite.

    If you want scores from notable critics, go read them. I know some people can’t form their own opinions on wines. That is sad in itself, but you've taken it to the next level, acting as an unpaid mercenary to enforce their opinions on CellarTracker. I can think of few things more pathetic.

Starts off complex and after 30 minutes becomes more so. Lemon orchard, sweet icing, buttered toast, strawberry jam, pizza dough, marmalade, wet coins, pool water. Also technically sound with nice shape and length. 4+

Just released from the winery. PnP. Medium light gold. Nose has a combination of tropical fruits and citrus. Lovely weight and balance on the palate. Drinking very well at age 9 as the winery said!

2014 Mount Eden Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains

Violets, berry candies, jam, vanilla bean, toasted coconut. Markedly tropical sensation of sweetness. Superlatively unique and well-executed expression of the Medoc style.

I opened this early to make sure that the batch I bought has not suffered from poor storage, and it seems to be solid. I will wait at least five years to open another. What a value. 5+

Very dark with thin meniscus. Interesting bouquet with fruit and brambles. Big and tannic on the palate. Not quite ready for action.

  • magyarsvensk commented:

    3/1/15, 2:44 PM - As I said above, the wine is rated where it is when I drink it. If a wine is released before it is ready, not my problem. Lots of Spanish producers hold back their wine until it is at least drinkable. Smart folks!

  • magyarsvensk commented:

    3/19/15, 11:57 PM - Most Bordeaux estates sell their wines en primeur, which is pretty much the opposite of holding it back.

    You are way too passionate about this one particular bottle. I tried it at a tasting, didn't buy any. What do you care what I think of it? If you love it, go get a case and enjoy yourself.

1990 Salon Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay

New Year's Eve, San Diego (San Diego): Clear light gold color with subdued effervescence. Gorgeous bouquet of crisp apple cider, ginger, lime, fine nutty sherry, hints of alfalfa and mulling spices. Not overtly mineral, but with beautiful acidity providing freshness and precision. I noted a similarly complex profile with 1985 Salon back in 2009 and wonder if this is a house style that emerges in maturity. A world-class champagne. My #1 and group's FIRST PLACE.
