Red Blend

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Black cherry and plum tart emerging through aromas of violets dotting brown breads, shiitake and black oak. Cinnamon, cedar and clove coalesce. Raspberry reduction with currants. Hints of mints. Tart cherry palate brings cherry reduction and black currants, tons of dark cedar wrapped cigar, tart blackberry, peppercorn and cinnamon stick. Green notes suggest this is still young and half-blossomed despite the quarter century. Grainy tannins, though rounded.

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Dark rubi robe with a slight brick color on the rim. One would never say its over 40 years old. Cedar notes intertwined with dark cherries, tobacco, pencil lead, and secondary aromas. Dense, rich, but balanced and fresh, its a bold Pauillac ready to drink but absolutely no rush. Great bottle and one of the best 82s we tasted. — 15 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Even at 23 years this is still baby and needs another 5 years to fully open with integrated tannins. Started to open after a good hour in the glass. First taste after a pour acidity and gripping tannins. — 5 days ago

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1959

Dark scarlet color with a deep center. Notes of black cherry, cola, roses, cassis, some spice and a little wood char. Amazing perfume in the nose. Smooth and silky in the mouth. Lots of drama with this one, and many agreed the 59 was better than the 45, the 61 and 82 Latours beside it. Bravo! — 11 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2004

Gorgeous, traditional and generous.
Not too sweet, not too rustic; right in the middle 🎯
Soft notes of plums, black cherries, beefstew, garrigue, brown spices and a whiff of hearty umami nuances like porcini, sundried tomatoes and vegemite/soysauce.
Well balanced, medium bodied and full of detail and finesse. Great stuff.

Liked this one quite a bit. Showing off the Grenache more and makes for a different experience for older Beaucastels. — 13 days ago
