Rossboss 91

2004 Ontanon - Reserva
Powerful and masculine, expressing fruit immediately with softening tannins and throwing a bit of sediment. Blackberry, typical spanish smokey characteristics, herbs, grilled bread, great compliment to bbq lamb, Filipino lechon. Would definitely visit this spot in Logrono if ever in Spain! Last bottle.

2010 Ca'Nova - Barbaresco Montestefano
Light to medium, drinkable style Barbaresco with good medium mouth feel and sound structure. Tannins still hanging around. Pretty good value. Check the last bottle later this year.

2010 Chateau Husson - Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Saintes Vierges
Ah yes more foreshadowing of what the greats of 2010 will be like. Popped and poured and all were treated to a fresh, fruit powered Grenache/Mourvedre blend whose dark violet frame poured forth a dry, smooth mouth feel plush with cassis, garrique and very little vanilla if any (not sure if any oak was used), but this was yet another perfect accompaniment to roast lamb - could this be the perfect kind of wine for it? A few more years would soften the tannins but the soundness of the wine is there with respect to flavor and structure. Who thought Costco would stock a 2010 CdP?

2010 Pesquie - Les Terrasses
Remarkably rich, this is a masculine wine, with pain-grille, minerals, loam, clay, and a core of plum, dark chocolate and hints of dried herbs. Still not seeing the 94 but a structurally sound daily drinker/strong value. Drink soonish.

2007 Massa - Giorgio Primo
Showed the most long term potential of the 3 wines and it is already great. The tannins are very gripping but man the fruit is abundant and tastes like world class Bordeaux, red and black currants, plums, and when i was searching for the Sangiovese and couldn't find it I then read that there's no sangiovese. That was comforting! A decant would have softened things up but this was ready to roll, so smooth and will keep rolling for years. This is remarkable and so happy I have one more.
