Bernard Burgaud - Cote-Rotie
Consistent notes. Med.-dark mature red color; big nose of black fruit and smoked meat; similar flavors on the palate with additional depth and spice; rich & complex; well-integrated soft tannins; excellent balance; very long enjoyable finish. An outstanding Cote Rotie that continues to drink beautifully now and with plenty of life ahead.
Condorcet - Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Consistent notes. Med.-dark garnet red; nice full nose of red & black fruit, pepper and other spices, and haberdashery; similar but even more complex flavors; soft, lush, Burgundian-like w/exotic notes; rich and well balanced; med. bodied; soft integrated tannins; fully mature but should hold for a few more years.
Casisano-Colombaio - Brunello di Montalcino
Consistent notes with continued development in bottle. Medium dark mahogany red color. Elegant and stylish w/lovely structure, balance, and complexity; soft tannins, black fruit; long complex finish. Good bottle development. Delicious now and for the next several years
Rocca Felice - Barolo Cappallotto
Med ruby red; lovely nose of red fruit with smoky, gamey nuances; similar flavors in a lighter style but with good flavor intensity, nice acid balance, and a long finish. Ready now but should continue to drink well for several more years.
Bright ruby color; lovely, somewhat rustic, nose of black & red fruit and a bit of leather and haberdashery; similar flavors with good acid balance and intensity of fruit. Lacking some complexity but still very delicious. Long intense finish. A very nice St. Emilion in the middle of its drinking plateau.
