Uvaguilera - Palomero
Core of dark berry, black cherry and blueberry fruit. Notes of mesquite, leather and burnt oak. Finely grained tannins. Decent length to the finish. This needs time to open up.
Francois Chidaine - Montlouis sur Loire les Tuffeaux
Delicious, rich, full-bodied white. Flavors of citrus fruit, pineapple, mandarin orange and honeysuckle. Voluptuous mouthfeel. Just enough acidity to keep it balanced. Long, flavorful, honeyed finish. Very satisfying and keeps you coming back for another sip.
Chateau Montelena - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Core of ripe blackberry and black raspberry fruit. Notes of kirsch, tobacco, new saddle leather, sandalwood and chalk. Finely grained tannins. Good length and flavor on the finish.
JL Chave Selection - Crozes Hermitage
This is absolutely delicious. A baby Chateauneuf. Ripe red and dark berry fruit complemented by baking spices and white pepper on the mid-palate. Long, flavorful finish lingers on the palate with spciness carrying thru to the end. Wonderful wine still strutting its stuff.
Rosenblum - Petite Sirah Heritage Clones
Super extracted, full throttle style. Palate-coating flavors of sappy dark berry and blackberry fruit. Flavors of blackberry liqueur, sweet tobacco and licorice. Tongue-staining, long, robust, flavorful finish. Rounded, polished tannins.
