Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

Sitting back enjoying the evening waiting for another hurricane to hit later tonight. This was still youthful after 20 yrs showing notes of black & red fruit, cassis, spice box, pencil shavings, earth, mineral, leather, menthol & tobacco. — 17 days ago

Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier

Clos de la Maréchale Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2019

This was more classic of the 19 vintage showing rich sappy dark fruit with nice spice, mineral, earth & floral notes. Great vintage for this wine. — 2 days ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Pure perfection, the 1989 Château La Mission Haut Brion is at eye level with the glorious 1989 Château Haut Brion from across the street, but much wilder and rustic in character. Deep garnet coloured, the nose explodes with intense aromas of scorched earth, leather, liquorice, tobacco, charred wood, blueberry and blackberry jam, black currant, mushrooms and graphite. Full bodied, extremely dense and packed with concentrated, ripe black fruits, this stallion of a wine still manages to be absolutely seamless. Drink now until 2040 — a month ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2002

45 min decant(decent chunky/fine sediment). A remarkable medium garnet color with bricking. On the nose: beautiful perfumed notes burst from the glass with sour cherry, mint, dusty earth, currants, wet cedar, green bell pepper....could sniff all night! Taste: soft and round, smooth, elegant wine with raspberry, cedar, currants, musky earth, and a nice dark chocolate cherry finish. YUM! A wine that has hit its stride over the past few years with time to go. — 14 hours ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1985

Tasted blind. Dark purple and opaque. Black fruit, barnyard, earth and gravel. Having had this 20+ times including not that long ago, I should have been able to pick this out. But we're all nearing our the useful end of our tasting abilities and the reveal leads to, "Of course it is". The condition of this 85 LB was much better than others I've had recently - clearly has much life left for it if the bottle conditions are similar. — a month ago

Sandhi Wines

Rita's Crown Chardonnay 2014

Really very good. In a nice spot, glad we saved this. Quite rich, but the confectionary quality is nicely balanced. A bit flinty on the finish, excellent acid. Very complete and enjoyable — 2 months ago
