    September 21, 2019 - Medium-bodied, elegant and with a showy nose of thyme, mint, flowers, forest and red pit fruits, the wine is focused on its finesse and freshness, with a soft, silky, sweet red berry finish. Give this 7-8 years and it will be a beauty. This is the first vintage for La Lagune where they were certified as 100% organic.

    February 25, 2019 - Amsterdam UGCB Tasting and Winemakers' Dinner (Beurs van Berlage / Café De Klepel): Beautifully pure and fragrant nose, lovely fruit, flowing and feminine style, silky tannins, good but not excellent length.

    February 11, 2019 - Floral and fresh, the wine is medium-bodied, elegant and offers a blend of cherry blossom, thyme, and black raspberries. This is about finesse and freshness with a soft, silky finish. This is the first vintage for La Lagune where they have been certified as 100% organic.

    January 25, 2019 - UNION DES GRANDS CRUS DE BORDEAUX 2016 VINTAGE SAN FRANCISCO. (Metreon, San Francisco, Ca.): UNION DES GRANDS CRUS DE BORDEAUX 2016 VINTAGE SAN FRANCISCO. Nose of red cherry, black cherry, black berry, tobacco, forest floor, and minerals, same on the palate, medium/big body, rich fruit, needs 5 years in the cellar with upside potential because of medium amount of mouth drying tannins, medium/long finish.

    January 25, 2019 - UGC San Francisco: the 2016 Bordeaux: This had a lovely bouquet and attack, but it had one of the coarsest finishes of any wines and the tannins were really poking out. But if I had to score it for its future potential, I’d probably still give it 90 pts.
