2009 Clos du Calvaire - Chateauneuf du Pape
Sweet, sweet nose on pop and pour. Nearly purple opaque, strawberries and blackberries on the nose, a rich, earthy, mouthfilling splash of flavor on first sip. Tannins still going strong, but won't stop you from drinking it one bit. Nice couple of second finish - much better than the last bottle which was probably flawed/corked. Has power but didn't have the elegance/finesse of the 2010s. Drink soon!

2007 Justin - Isosceles
What's with the hating? This is fantastic, what wine should be. From half bottle. Multi-layered, fruit driven. Decanted through mesh filter/funnel. Sat for <30 mins. Nose of stewed cherries and slightly vegetal. Fills the mouth and silky tannins abound. Plenty of stuff here and plenty to go. Red fruits with a touch of meat blood/iron and some milk chocolate. Hours after opening it's still fun to drink. Lingering finish. Delicious and excellent with beeftekia.

2010 St Anne - Cotes du Rhone Villages Cuvee Notre Dame des Cellettes
Indeed a very CdP-esque wine, some white pepper notes, but more dominated by its raspberry/strawberry character and forest floor character. A terrific wine for the price!

2006 Palagetto Uno di Quattro
Pungent, penetrating to the sinuses, this Tuscan Syrah has heft, depth and power, with dark berry flavors, hot stones, a bit of astringency, firm tannins, rounded out by cocoa/chocolate. Definitely warm climate Syrah. More years might have smoothed this out...by why wait? :)

2013 Carrick - Pinot Gris
So smooth, so delicious...here's a white wine I can get behind. Very little petillance but very good acid and structure. Pineapple, pear and oak in the background. Just a lovely, smooth quaff with enough for food.
