Cellers Can Blau

Blau Montsant Red Blend 2018

In one fell swoop kick off the sandals, throw off the shirt, hop skip across sun-baked flat tile stones and dive with a swan’s assurance into the seaside swimming pool, warmed only by the elements, and just as mysterious, elusive and temperamental…….

Dom Pérignon

Brut Champagne Blend 1996

POV: you’ve been asking your dad for 15 years when we can drink this wine and he finally opens it to celebrate your wedding weekend. Golden hue. Lemon, bruised apple, brioche. Soft moussey bubbles, dry and velvety on the tongue. Absolutely AMAZING to drink. — 2 months ago

Mas de Can Blau Cariñena Blend 2013

ESF
9.5

Tour de Force, absolutely black, so inky & dense, so brooding with layers upon layers of liqueur like black/blue fruit, just gobs of rich extracted macerated fruit w/distinct vein of minerality, licorice, mocha, smoke, hedonistic, light dusting of sweet baking spices, couldn’t pull our noses out of the glass, and the palate just reinforced everything… just massive, wave after wave of richness, a bit of heat from the hi ABV is my only minor deduction. Showed power & grace, masculine, structured w/lengthy caressing finish. This could go 20+ yrs, it’s just a baby. — 8 days ago

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2001

Outstanding. Rich, intense tannins with an everlasting finish. Nose of truffles, red cherry, roses. Drinks well, but can cellar another 20 years with no problem. — 2 months ago

Artemis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Dark fruit, full body. Can tell you are getting into some oak on the nose, but ultimately oak does not over power. Strong but mellow in mouthfeel and smooth. Agree with another reviewer who called this a big wine. Has the vanilla the soft oak bite. — 2 months ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Gravonia Crianza Rioja Viura 2012

We’ve tasted – and adore – several different wines from the family-run Bodegas López de Heredia. We can now add this one to the list!

It’s a 2012 Rioja Crianza made from the Viura grape (100%) hailing from organically-farmed estate vineyards in the La Rioja region of Rioja DOCa, Spain.

The “Crianza” designation means this white wine spent at least 6 months aging on oak, however, this wine far exceeds the minimum as it was aged for 4 years in oak barrels before release.

It’s absolutely delicious! It has a deep golden hue with rich, well-developed notes of dried apricot, peach cobbler, beeswax, dill, vanilla, caramel, and butterscotch. It is dry, has medium alcohol, and has medium acidity to balance the confectionary aromas and flavors.

It is intensely fragrant and complex, making it an excellent solo sipper. It could also pair with savory, grilled or roasted fish or a flavorful stew like seafood paella.

Bodegas R. López de Heredia, Viña Gravonia, Rioja Crianza (2012), 12.5% ABV.

Caymus Vineyards

40th Anniversary Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

This is a very controversial wine in the wine world. Some love it, yet some really hate it. I can understand both sides.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim. Not showing age at all.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, tobacco, light vinaigrette, earth, chocolates, peppercorn, coffee and mocha.

Nice finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.

Tasty and delicious with a strong nose. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

I had this vintage 7 years ago, and liked it just as much. This time
I had it blind, so it is what it is.

Wine Spectator 91 points. Robert Parker 96 points.

This 10 year old is easy drinking and good for parties.

Very enjoyable by itself or with food. A good sipping wine.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$150.

@Martin Bergo depends on how difficult it is for you to get the $150 😊

150 USD for a single bottle of wine I have only put down for an occasional belle epoque, dom perignon, and hermitage.

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2008

Huge wine. Opened 2 hours prior - lots of structure and tannins - could go another decade but who can wait. A powerhouse! — 3 months ago
