Buccella - Cabernet Sauvignon
A very solid bottle of wine. When I poured it through the Vinturri into my decantor, the first thing you noticed is the enormous nose on this wine. It literally smelled like a grape juice instead of a wine. After 20 minutes in the decantor, a beautiful wine emerged with bright ripe fruit and a hint of smoke and vanilla. This is a very fruit forward wine with refined tannins.
Robert Mondavi - Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Similar notes as last time. Good, not great. I think this vintage has already hit its prime. The tannins were well integrated and the fruit tasted as if it was beginning to fade.
Agharta - Red
Massive amounts of pepper on the mid palate and finish. Earthy and loamy. This is a big wine that could use some more time in the bottle as the tannins are running wild. Good and interesting, but would not buy more.
Clos l'Eglise - Esprit de L'Eglise
A bit closed and tannic the first day but day 2 presented a delicious bottle of wine with rounded edges smoky aroma and a hit of tobacco and earth. A solid wine and a nice value.
Gorman - Syrah/Cabernet The Evil Twin
Menthol on the nose with undertones of earth and herbs. Well balanced with gripping tannins on the finish. Leaves behind an earthy and grassy essesnse on the mid palate at the end which lasts for up to 45 seconds. An interesting and enjoyable bottle of wine.
