Clos du Caillou - Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz
Everything I love about CDP. Core of strawberry and raspberry fruit with flavors of creme de cassis and rose petals. Framed by notes of white pepper and spices. Finely grained tannins. Well-balanced with a long flavorful finish. Delicous.
Ridge - Zinfandel Pagani Ranch
This needs to be drunk soon, but is still delicious. Very port-like. Flavors of blackberry compote, stewed prunes with hints of menthol and spices. Medium to full-bodied. Wonderful concentration with fully integrated tannins. Flavorful, palate-coating finish with tremendous length.
Arns - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Still showing good fruit and concentration. Ripe, sweet dark berry fruit. Smacks of licorice and mint. Good depth with polished, rounded tannins and full mouthfeel. Long finish with flavorful follow through.
Much improved from my last tasting. Much more restrained, elegant style. Medium-bodied. Red and dark berry fruit with delicious spiciness. Hints of tobacco and cedar. Soft, supple, well-integrated integrated tannins. Good length to the lingering finish.
Williams Selyem - Chardonnay Heintz Vineyard
Another super concentrated (and delicious) Chardonnay from Williams Selyem. Flavors burst across the palate with fresh cut apples, white peach, lemon, key lime and grape fruit. Nice vibrant acidity and freshness. Long, intense finish.
