Heitz - Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard
Glad I waited for a special occasion. Simply a wonderful bottle of wine. Probably the perfect time to drink it, all tannins were gone, and it was just velvety smooth. A bit of fruit, long legs, but actually not jammy or thick in any way
Florane - Cotes du Rhone Villages Visan Terre Pourpre
Thes is really something special. It has a body and complexity that is very different from most french Rhone blends. It has hints of florals and berries, and a wonderful long soft finish
Cheval Quancard - Chateau Tour St Joseph
If you ever find some, buy it all. This is a truly amazing wine. When you factor in the cost it is unfathomable. This drinks like a complex, balanced Bordeaux right up with the top-end premier cru's.
Zonnebloem - Cabernet Sauvignon
Really amazing. Very deep garnet to inky color. Very full body without any fruit or heat overload. Tannins have softened to an almost silky experience, and the finish is long and pleasant. Needs about 45 minutes to decant to really open up well.
Day 1: Deep blood-red color, Soft tannins, nice long finish and plenty of body. Good fruit and slight acidity. Really enjoyable to drink now, but I bet this will be stunning with time in the cellar. Will try again tomorrow, and plan to store until 2012 or so
