Nickel & Nickel - Cabernet Sauvignon Vogt Vineyard
Very approachable, tannins soft but still adding to the complexity. Juicy dark fruit, hint of oak and spice. Nice bottle, probably still has some time but definitely softening up. No decant needed.
Marius Delarche - Pernand-Vergelesses
Very dry, chalky tannins, light color, tart red fruit and a little spice. Medium bodied. Ok for this style I guess, not my style.
Vincent & Sophie Morey - Chassagne-Montrachet Les Embrazees 1er Cru
Primarily crisp, golden apple on the nose. Still very lively and acidic with tart apple, lots of lemony citrus and some toasty oak on the back end. Nice change of pace vs. Cali chards. Wondering if will get creamier on day 2.
Duckhorn - Merlot Napa Valley
Soft and elegant, creamy tannins, lovely finish. Tart red berry fruits, some vanilla and medium oak. Love the vegetal qualities on the nose. Still quite fresh, should hold up for a little while longer but drinking nicely at the moment.
Etienne Sauzet - Puligny-Montrachet
Nice combination of acidity along with citrus and stone fruit. Slightly oily texture. Once the hard chill wears off, it smooths out pleasantly. Time to drink up.
