Opened with dinner. Poured a 2009 Sauzet La Garenne and the Diamond Creek before sitting down. The Diamond Creek opened beautifully with some gradual improvement over the meal. My last one at a perfect time.

Bought on release from Chambers Street and cellared ever since. Been meaning to pull my 4 bottles from long term storage just to open and pour out given the frequency of bad bottles. Then I read Repoper's reviews and thought maybe there is a chance. Tonight expecting very little - I even pulled two bottles to open, almost brought all 4 bottles. Well, surprise, surprise, this is my kind of wine. And no rush to drink - it's only going to get better.

If you look at my history, I almost never post notes. I drink wine not analyze it. But this wine is very special, and the Chambers Street Wines website says it best:
"Not for quaffing — this is a wine of contemplation..."
Thank you, David and the staff at CSW.

This wine is 2011 Maison Brulees Art de L'Eau, a blend of Pineau D'Aunis, Gamay, and Cab Franc. I was unable to add it to the database.

Bought on release in the Diamond Creek mixed case; cellared ever since. I must confess that at times I doubted the wine. But no more. It was an amazing wine and makes me nostalgic for the 80s style of California cabs. Double decanted an 1 1/2 before drinking. Drinking beautifully but there is no rush for well cellared bottles. Unfortunately my last bottle. Thank you, Al.

The Margaux was double decanted and placed back into the cellar at 5:00 for dinner beginning at 8:00. The wine was poured upon arrival at the restaurant, and it was still pretty tight. About 9:30 it really arrived at a sweet spot and held it through the rest of the meal.

Last of a case. Tight on opening. Opens up after 45 minutes. No rush on this one - a great beaujolais.

Had this wine at our favorite Japanese restaurant. We ate a variety of dishes with many flavors. The wine evolved over the evening to compliment each dish. A great wine that matched up beautifully with all our dishes. With only six bottles left from my original request, I've ordered another case. I definitely need more of this.

Decanted for 4 hours before our meal. The wine had a slightly vegetal Bordeaux nose, but the mouth was extremely austere – very disappointing with no improvement over the evening. We had a sister bottle last year, and it was excellent. Both wines bought on release and consistently cellared.

13.3% alcohol and the first vintage from this producer, Suacci Vnyd. is in the Sonoma Coast AVA; smells of sour cherries, cranberries and spice; tastes like a barrel sample with flavors that follow the nose, crisp acidity, a silken texture but not quite knit together yet; everything is in place but this needs a year in the cellar. Maybe the best thing about it is its sense of lightness on the palate; nothing over-extracted or over-done. Lovely wine with grilled salmon and smashed potatoes.
