  • 2014 Château Meyney

    Deep red/violet and clear in the glass with a very dark core. Stunning nose that is open and aromatic with violets, black fruit, and campfire. Same notes on palate with anise. Polished, full, and silky on the mid palate. Long expansive black fruit/anise finish. (Conservatively 93).

    Reluctantly, I add my two cents into the argument about this wine tasting as if it came from Napa. To me, this wine exhibits excellent St.Estephe typicity. In fact, a couple of weeks ago I drank a 750 of 14 Montrose. This Meyney is very similar, perhaps a little less power, depth, and complexity. A half step behind the Montrose at a quarter of the price...….

    I was lucky (smart?) and jumped on this wine early. Two cases bought as futures at less than $30/750. If I were to rate this wine as a sub $30 ordinary occasion drink, it would be close to 100pts. Really very difficult to find a wine of this very high quality at the price I paid. Wish I had bought even more...….

  • 2012 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

    Deep red with touch of violet and clear in the glass. Stunning nose with violets, blackberries, licorice, and hint of smoked meat. Open and highly aromatic. Same notes on the palate with some garrigue as well. Powerful and supple mid palate. Very long blackberry anise finish. CdP doesn't get much better than this. 95.

    In it's prime now but in no rush.

  • 2006 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

    Deep red and clear in the glass. Open and very expressive on the nose and mid-palate. Dark berries, balsamic, Asian spice, and licorice. All supported by opulent and silky structure. Long expansive licorice finish.

    Just magnificent. (95-97)

    3/19/2015 3:24:00 PM - thanks for your response - I've had similar issues with German Rieslings and the only solution I've found is time. And, alas, lots of it. So, based on your note, it will probably be 2018 before I pop my bottle! cheers, chatters

    2/27/2015 11:07:00 AM - Hello again TexanoBlues, So kind you're ...and yep, every element is really important when we're talking about wine. Time? Tasters don't even consider it and real aficionados will kill for it. Land, region, winemaker, grape, time, vintage, there're many aspects moreover they've different weight in our glass. Because after all, wine involves a subjetive perception. That's why we're happy to meet people feeling the same as someone. Cheers!
