2011 Nido - Clio
Ah I knew I could count on Clio to bear more fruit than the unfortunate Clos du Calvaire. This was extremely primary with honey and vanilla accompanying stewed cherries, blackberries and other dark fruits. This was infanticide that indeed displayed the usual Clio hedonism. I do think this is a few years and a long decant away from excellence.

2009 Clos du Calvaire - Chateauneuf du Pape
When first opened the nose was certainly there, sweet dark fruits and we were all excited, much the same way we were following the last bottle. First taste gave off lots of acid and thought it was going to burn off soon but this was heading down hill fast, wondering if in fact I had a flawed bottle. It started to come out of a "dumb" phase but I feel like it had overstayed its welcome. The bottle variation here was unfortunate and documented. I have one remaining half bottle, so we'll see...

2008 Simian - Chateauneuf du Pape
Deep, purple color, floral nose, enjoyable qualities, but missed the strength and structure of a CdP - as one reviewer said "good Cotes du Rhone, bad CdP" I wouldn't go that far but 2008 was certainly not the vintage of 2009, and far from 2007 and 2010. Blackberry, licorice, underbrush

2005 Alejandro Fernandez - Tinto Pesquera (Crianza)
Struggled to get the cork out and had to decant through a funnel - still had some alcohol funkiness underneath was mocha, red fruits, nice tannic structure, cherries, dust. Was hoping after 10 years this would have shown more but even still was delicious and great for pizza.

2007 Fattoria del Cerro Caggio Al Vescovo
Yes! (yes, yes) I see the point potential here, and focused, delicious, structured, well constructed wine. Turning a blending grape into its own varietal bottling and much better than the first bottle. Grabbed on a whim and paired great with lamb w/ garlic and other rich foods.
