Cape Mentelle

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Wine No. 6 of the 8 Cabernets we tasted blind on Saturday. The idea for this tasting came from Cape Mentelle who annually have an International Cabernet tasting at the winery in WA where they have the confidence to put their wine up against the best Cabernets in the world every year. This has all of the classic Cabernet descriptors of black olive, red fruits, cigar box etc. Ranked #6 of the 8 Cabernets we tasted on the day. Again needs to be cellared to realise its ultimate potential. — 8 months ago

@Clive McNish That’s right Clive. There were some good wines there. To be fair the rankings for the tasting were judged on a consensus. I gave this wine 95 points but the consensus was 92.66.

Dehlinger Winery

Goldridge Vineyard 33 Year Old Vines Pinot Noir 2007

Tasting of 10 of the 2007-2011 Dehlinger Pinots. Eva Delingher was kind enough to join our tasting and answer all of our random questions. Found this to be a bit shut down. Loved the pristine color, however. My #6 of 10. — a month ago

Advent #6, not a fav and would give it a 7, a bit acidic for our taste buds. Tom and I shared the bottle. — 5 months ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

#6 on WS top 100 wines of 2007.

2 hour decant (decent chunky sediment). A dazzling dark ruby red color. On the nose: perfumed nose, black fruit, menthol, earthy, green veggie, graphite. Taste: a smooth and silky wine with dark fruit, spice, earthy, and a cherry pencil lead medium plus slightly tannic finish. Still just a little young and slightly austere...it will be better with a few more years on it. But with the decant, it will be enjoyed over the next couple hours this Saturday night! Cheers!

Avaton 2017

Greek wine evening, wine #6
Big, bold, rich.
Dark brooding fruit, sun dried herbs, a whiff of vanilla and a touch of wood.
Very Roussillon in style.
Juicy acidity and good balance, the tannins a a bit too dry though and the 14.5% alc noticeable.
Very good with a Moussaka but a touch too much stand alone.

Château Bouscassé

Vieilles Vignes Madiran Red Blend 2009

Sud-Ouest tasting #6
8h decanted, this starts showing some dark cherry, leather, tobacco leaf, moist earth, raw cocoa...dark, savoury, rough. On the palate this is juicy, savoury, slightly rough yet elegant at the same time. Great depth, length, character. This is special.

Alain Brumont's wines are different. I never have been disappointed by one his Montus wines.
