Morlet Family - Chardonnay Ma Princesse
Some good depth and focus here. Light green apple, vanilla, and medium weight. nicely balanced and solid round mouthfeel
Mailly - Vintage Cuvee de Echansons
wow! what a champagne. I think this was better than krug, don, and cristal. The balance, acidity, and ndosage were harmonious. Nice nutty, rich and pleasing apple, pear, and caramel and vanilla. this was dynamite. going to buy more
Pahlmeyer - Red
Not the best bottle of Pahlmeyer I have had. This '04 was rich, singular, and fading. The fruit profile was ok but this was no 98 pt wine. Maybe this was a bad bottle. Have always been a fan so will have to open another one later this year
Quilceda Creek - Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley
Nothing short of elegant, refined, and too easy to drink. Not quite a 98 imo but quite amazing and full of complexity. layered, earthly, with sandalwood, nutmeg, charcoal, and a dusting of cocoa. Great stuff that changes as the it sits in the glass. As integrated tannins as you will find.
Maurodos - Prima
full bodied, nice american oak accents, and black fruits. Leather, blackberry, earth, and cedar notes up front, Great balance. Fantastic for the price.
