2010 Nido - Clio
The bird juice continues to impress- this would easily fool any of my acquaintances who believe Cali Cabs are the end all/ be all - in fact this comes across as elegant and restrained by comparison to a big Caymus or Dominus. Lush blueberry cocoa flavors emerge from the dark purple colored liquid with medium legs. Flavors of jammy black fruits with cumin/turmeric spices underlying. Certainly an oak component to this and it's just impeccably smooth. Tannins are in the process of softening but it's just constantly hedonistic! Full bodied, makes you wonder when the meat will be ready! Lovely, 3 more to go of this vintage, and then 2011s and 2012s!! May be the best QPR ever.

2010 Graveirette - Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Mementes
This is a real find and it's excellent to enjoy a 2010 CdP that's in good drinking condition. There's so much going on here, beautiful, powerful nose that hits immediately on PnP, gorgeous in the glass, slightly opaque dark ruby. It is literally mouthwatering, there's grilled meat, bbq, hoisin, plum, herbs, tannins for sure, but smooth and not harsh. I'm really thrilled with this, and if this is an "entry level" CdP then everything else will be remarkable. Well done!

2005 Altanza - Lealtanza Artistas Espanoles Gaudi Reserva
Drinking like a mature wine, with layers of red fruits, framed by tobacco, oak, graphite, coffee and other earth flavors, very elegant and tannins are velvety, smooth and easy to drink. Acts like an old world wine, enjoyable on its own, but better with rich foods with a bit of fat.

2010 Mandolina - Toccata Riserva
Smooth and easy drinking, don't see lots of development here but nice acid, mouthfeel for drinking with food. Not much nose on pop n' pour, flavors are dark, black fruits, leaf, earth. Alcohol seemed a little high but otherwise fairly elegant, not a flabby fruit bomb.

2006 Dettori Renosu
This was the wine I should have served a week ago. Delicious vibrant nose, you smell the alcohol but it burns off. Amazing that this was a 'reject' wine since it wasn't up to standard for the Rosso. This is delicious with orange and cranberry on the first sip and then a beam of cherry coated with clove and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is thick, very mouthcoating and creamy with subtle vanilla. Came across very different than last weekend's Tuderi. Very good!
