Robert Mondavi Winery

The Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

It’s great to see the historic and influential Robert Mondavi Winery return to excellence. Napa Bordeaux blend with 85% #cabernetsauvignon 6% #cabernetfranc 6% #petitverdot 2% #malbec 1% #merlot. This wine shines with generous decanting. Elegant, memorable ripe bramble fruit and black plum, sweet baking spices on the nose. Juicy tartness underlays a bold wave of fruit on the palate with silken tannins on the finish. I definitely plan on laying down my other bottle for at least half a decade. #oakville — 4 months ago

Pickberry Single Vineyard Sonoma Mountain Red Merlot Blend 2013


#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 — 3 years ago

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

Tenuta di Arceno

Il Fauno di Arcanum Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2016

Il Fauno 2016 51% #merlot, 31% #cabernetfranc, 17% #cabernetsauvignon and 1% #petitverdot . Delicious, ageworthy #toscanaigt blend. Pretty tight after opening, a day later, black and blue berry notes unfurl alongside tobacco, toasted coconut, tilled earth, and vanilla notes on nose. Bright acidity on palate, rich texture and some chewy tannins on the finish that build and linger on the tongue. Overall I’m digging the balance and richness but a bit too much vanilla / toast notes from new oak. — 2 years ago

Château Tour de Pez

Cru Bourgeois St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016


Medium(+) intensity aromas of black fruit (plum, cherry and prune) with secondary aromas of oak (cedar, smoke and dark chocolate) and just beginning to show some tertiary aromas and flavors of tobacco leaf and prunes. The wine has medium(+) acidity, medium(+) fine grained textural tannins and medium(+) body. The finish is medium (+) and while slightly grippy, those tannins are ripe and it’s that structure which will give it the ability to age in bottle for another 5/7 years. There is enough fruit and defined aromas and flavors to balance the acidity and the tannins which want to be the protagonista of this wine. A solid Claret. #saintestephe #bordeaux #grandvindebordeaux #cabernet #cabernetsauvignon #merlot and just 5% #petitverdot — 3 years ago

Petite Petit Lodi Petite Sirah Petit Verdot

85% #PetiteSirah and 15% #PetitVerdot
Deep, inky purple in the glass. Brilliant nose of black cherries, blackberries, and vanilla. This wine is huge. It is silky and big-bodied with notes of black fruit. The finish is long and beautiful. Great with roast beast 🤣

Nice Winery

Proprietary Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

Yet another superb red blend from Nice Winery. 54% #cabernetsauvignon / 16% #merlot / 14% #malbec / 12% #petitverdot / 4% #cabernetfranc - it pays homage to all of the great varietals of Bordeaux. With a modest 13.8% ABV, it overflows with wafts of dark bramble fruit, leather, sous bois, lovely acidity, earth and lush California fruit in balance. Paired marvelously with grilled steak. — 2 years ago

Selección Especial Vinos de Madrid Tempranillo Blend 2018


I was a little disappointed. I remember years ago this wine was a limited production boutique wine from #madrid almost Toledo and while the label says it still has been aged in oak for 12 months, there are practically no secondary aromas and the tannins are slightly coarse and stalky and the fruit seems too ripe and has lost any expression of terroir. #tempranillo #cabernetsauvignon #merlot #petitverdot #syrah — 3 years ago
