2010 Tablas Creek - Esprit de Beaucastel
One of the top's of the afternoon - had some interesting almost grapefruit flavors to accompany lots of bright plum, pepper, blackberries - it was clear that grenache wasn't dominant here and I think there's much more to come with the next bottle at a future date.

2005 Carmen Rodriguez - Caro Dorum Seleccion Especial
This was the wine of the day, certainly the most hedonistic, not necessarily elegant, but glad that the Caro Dorum went out with a bang and the people liked it. Sun sweetened port like flavors, blueberry pie, espresso, very toro and very awesome. Still showing some tannins and probably would have been drinkable for a few more years.

2001 Clos du Mont Olivet - Chateauneuf du Pape Selection Reflets
Had a beautiful nose but was either air starved or just way past prime and just flat. Flat. Had some cherry flavors, wet stones that were pleasant but this felt like it suffered from heat exposure. Gets a decent score due to sympathy.

2010 Vrignaud - Chablis
A very fine effort. Quite complex for the price point. Drinking well now, but should continue to improve.

2012 Sea Smoke - Pinot Noir Southing
Pretty big wine for a Pinot. Totally enjoyable.

2013 Bila Haut - Occultum Lapidem
Definitely too early to drink but wanted to taste to see if worth buying more. For $23, a will be buying a case. Big nose with a lots of earthy qualities. Deep purple in the glass. Taste of licorice and blackberries with a medium dry tannin. Opens up as it sits. Still too young.
