Deep cherry, cassis, and a touch of smoke on the nose. Very smooth on the palate, a bit of a short finish but absolutely fantastic with steak and a well balanced wine.

Orangey-maroon color. Pucker power leads me to believe that this is a wine for aging, with lots of tannins. Long, dry finish. Absolutely beautiful. Lots of dimensions. 91/100
Quite the nose here with honeysuckle, lychee, orange marmalade and lemon drop candy it’s intense and distinctive. This is perfumed and complex. Another wine that turns out to be leaner on the palate than one might guess from the aromatics. This is abs...

Nice, jammy and drinkable. Absolutely no depth, but a pleasant cheap wine.
Absolutely fantastic wine. Extremely smooth, yet lingering, finish. This wine has a deep ruby, red color and a taste of ripe berries. Highly recommended if you ever get a chance to try a glass (or yet a bottle!).

I would put this wine on the short list of best merlots out there today. Deep, unctuous texture, explosive blackberry fruit, whispers of vanilla oak, oh and I think someone might of thrown a bar of high quality dark chocolate into the barrel while no ...

This is an absolutely superb wine. Everything you would expect from a very well made wine in this region. Nice grassy nose, excellent minerality and an attack on the back palate that is almost addictive. I will be stocking up on this one for sure.

Absolutely a good wine but don't leave it in your cellar for too long
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma Valley|
Sweet nose up front with christmas spice and syrup, then gives way to slightly funky wet wool. Lean texture but with a big meaty peppery kick. The finish turns jammy with savory smoke and currants. Absolutely love this wine.

Nice update OT, looks like a lot of fun wines.Mike sold me on the Weitz when I saw him last...that '13 looks great, and surprised to see the stated abv under 15, already knew '13 figured to have more structure and freshness as well but can't complain about my cache of 2012's. So yeah, I've doubled my Carter collection from one to two bottles, 1s... Read More
Alesis is the "second" label of Rhys. My understanding is that Rhys bottles wines from their "estate" vineyards under the Rhys label and wines from purchased grapes are bottled under the Alesia label. I also think I read someplace that they are not going to offer any more Alesia bottlings. I am not absolutely sure about the truth of the last ... Read More
Reviews are mixed at best. 5/29/2011 - SBEEKS WROTE: 87 PointsI was looking forward to this bottle, having it in my cellar for a few years. Frankly, I was a bit disappointed. Flat on opening, and didn't really open up over the next 90 minutes. Not the best use of one of the greatest vineyards I have tasted. Doesn't even hold the promise of get... Read More
Emark - quite the opus! And you forgot our friends Zuf and Dmucker!But Becky -I think my prejudice stems from the practice of so many US vintners who beat their wines to death with oak staves.. That is partly true, but not in all cases and sometimes it's just more apparent because the wines are consumed so young. Coincidentally I'm doing a tasti... Read More
So happy to be amongst fellow oenophiles! I am a freelance copywriter, writing in the food, wine, and spirits industry.I am here to share my personal enthusiasm for wines, not for professional reasons.I live in Fargo, North Dakota, USA, where no one grows wine grapes to produce actual wine. I am just slightly better informed than a complete novi... Read More
The iron notes are absolutely the soil. No question about that. But you like Beaucastel CdP, right? That's pretty gamy stuff because it's got a fair bit of Mourvedre. Bandol, which is heavier on Mourvedre, is also very gamy. I think the iron notes were a different thing and were a big source of what you didn't like about Cascine delle Rose.... Read More
Sorry guys, missed this thread. The party went well. Over much too quickly considering the planning. Tons of leftovers but almost all white. I had an ice bucket on every table (14) with a bottle of white in it. Then had 1-1/2 cases of reds to pass around. On out invite we said mo gifts but if you absolutely have to bring something then bring a b... Read More

Emark - what you describe is exactly what you would do when you present your wines to Robert Parker or another critic who doesn't taste blind. You open a half dozen or more at say, six, five, four, three, two hours before and taste to see which one is best and that's the one you show if you want to get the best score. Actually, you will have don... Read More
