This is wine seems overpriced for me. That being said...I preferred it to some Super Tuscans blind. It’s a delicious wine. #chile #bordeauxblend — 2 years ago

Disappointing. Smells like smoked meat and mezcal. Literally. Iodine and ripe plums. Weird. #pinotage #bordeauxblend #southafricanwine — 2 years ago

Completely agree @Martin Sher I never had one that I enjoyed. Someone prove us wrong with a good recommendation.

Hi there! Not pretending to be wine guru but you shouldnt expect pinot noir offspring some solid stuff. But there are a lot light body enjoying wines. What I had 5days ago is Survivor Pinotage 2017. Maybe not 90 score but close to it. Cheers!

I’ve been told that Spioenkop 1900 is the best Pinotage around.

Chateau Potelle

VGS Mt Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

We’re snowed ❄️ in on a Friday night and decided to imbibe this generously gifted Chateau Potelle, VGS Vintage 2010, ABV 14.5%. It’s predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, alongside Merlot, from Mount Veeder in Napa Valley, California. 🍷 🇺🇸

Wow, aromas and flavors are exuberant, concentrated, rich, and span a spectrum of characteristics from candied plum, ripe black cherry, and crème de cassis to black olive and crushed violet, to nutmeg, cardamom, and clove, to leather, tobacco, smoke, meat, and earth.

Tannins and mouthfeel are supple and smooth. Acidity is present, lending balance.

This wine is bold and is drinking beautifully now, though it has potential for further aging.

Cheers!

Pretty Impressive to read compared to your other recent tastings ~ especially for it not being the house’s flagship wine! 🍷

#bordeauxblend that is comparably better than some of the Aussie blends I’ve been tasting lately. “Calentito”as we say in Spain which means you can feel the alcohol like a dragon in your lungs. #ravenswood #merlot #malbec #cabernetsauvignon (how annoying is the misspelled hashtag in @Delectable Wine of #cabernetsaugvinon) it’s the worst! And a pinch of #petitverdot #ravenswood — 2 years ago

@MICHAEL COOPER Spectacular color on that tomato . Off-topic I was recently reading an old note of mine (posted 160 weeks ago) on a Roulot wine and I noticed you said hi Ira.
for whatever reason I did not acknowledge it. Thinking about it I worked years ago with a gentleman named Michael Cooper. Perhaps you were thinking is that the Ira I worked with. I don’t like putting information on social media so if my thought process is correct just put the initials down of where we would have worked together. If you were just being friendly I apologize for this silly post.

Sorry. I can’t think of any company in which we might have worked together. I’m 41 so perhaps that will help you know for sure. I’m a fan of the wines you drink on Delectable and have been since I joined. If you’re ever going to be in Spain let me know. I make wines called Vinos Del Viento. If you’d like to email me there, perhaps we can meet and share wines some day. I have made a few great wine friendships through Delectable. We meet whenever I’m in their neck of the woods and we have great times. Cheers.
