Carlisle - Zinfandel Rossi Ranch
Drinking rather well. Ripe dark berry and bluberry fruit. Tannins almost fully integrated. Rounded, lush mouthfeel. Not tremendously complex. Good balance with nice finish. Straightforward.
Turley - Zinfandel Cedarman
Another well-balanced zin from Turley. Spicey, ripe dark berry and blackberry fruit. Seamlessly integrated tannins. Long, flavorful finish.
Henri Boillot - Chassagne-Montrachet Chenevottes 1er Cru
I am convinced now that each of my bottles of this wine are slightly oxidized. Not in a bad way. But I do not think this white Burgundy typically ages this way (?). Starts out with nutty, Madeira like flavors on the front of the palate. Opens up to reveal a core of citrus fruit. key lime and lemon meringue. Balanced nicely by vibrant acidity. Finishes with good length highlighting the citrus flavors.
Numanthia - Numanthia
Very upfront pleasing wine. Modern style Tempranillo. Fruit forward with extracted dark berry, plum and blueberry flavors. Full-bodied with finely grained, rounded tannins. Coats the palate and delivers a long, flavorful finish.
Merus - Cabernet Sauvignon
Once again, drinking beautifully. Wonderful, ripe fruit, silky tannins, well-balanced. Very plush mouthfeel yet still with good structure. Delicious, lengthy finish. I'm upping my score. This is definitely at its peak
