PurpleTeeth 92

2012 Carpe Diem - Cabernet Sauvignon
Consistent with previous bottles: smooth, easy drinking, light on the palate and delicious.

PurpleTeeth 88

2012 William Fevre - Chablis Les Champs Royaux
Showed a decent amount of Chablis typicity, with oyster shell, minerals, acidity, etc. all balanced by sufficient fruit. Should reach its peak in 2017-2018. This bottling is made exclusively for the North American market.

PurpleTeeth 91

2012 Carpe Diem - Cabernet Sauvignon
Made by the Roderer family of Cristal Champagne fame, this is one of the smoothest drinking, most delicious Napa Cabs I've encountered. Definitely belies its French breeding: balanced, long and with ample acidity for pairing with food. I immediately bought three more bottles. An excellent value at this price point. Will continue to buy.

2013 Mas Grand Plagniol - Costieres de Nimes Blanc
Full and round but balanced by the all-important acidity. Typical Grenache Blanc and Roussanne flavor profile. A substantial wine for the price. Would buy again.

2006 BV - Georges de Latour Private Reserve
This showed the classic Georges de Latour profile, showing black cherries, "scorched earth" (to use a Robert Parker-ism) and a little bit of brett, however the finish was relatively short for this wine. My guess is, in three or four years, this should become more complex and "settled", but the finish will always remain relatively short. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this "class in a glass."
