|Winery:||Château Haut Batailley|
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Pauillac|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Sauvignon|
This 2006 Pauillac was cellared prudently for 6 years, and appears to have peaked. The colour has become brick red, with a scent redolent of cranberry, blackberry confit and a hint of spicy cedar. On the palate, there is a bit of vanilla overlay and ...

Definitely one of the better ones from Tesco. Bold dark cherryness throughout, so easy to drink. Beautiful.

Better now that it sat for a few months. The fruit is lovely and enticing - mostly lush red berry with dark cherry nuances, deep seated wood, forest floor, herbal notes and mocha. Deep filling aftertaste. Drink now - Paul 89 points

Somewhat "closed" after initial pour. Never really opened up the first evening. Day two was much better with layers of fruit and tannins well integrated. My feeling though is that you can get wines this good that are a better value, and ready to drink ...

Well done wine. Crispness that gives this a coolness due to it's freshness. The varietals are new to me for this blend and that is what is so interesting about the wine world - there is so much to learn. Citrus and stone fruits are front and center wit...

This is my desert island wine. If I could drink this for the rest of my life I would not be upset. Controlled bomb o'fruit. Perfect for the first snowy night of this winter as it really warms the soul. Paired it with kung pao marinated skirt steak. Co...

Winemaker labeled it as a semi sweet wine, but when you drink it, you feel like it was sweet. The taste lasts for a long time. You could drink it without any meal, but it is much better with fish. This is one of my favorite vines.
|Winery:||Andrew Murray Vineyards|
|Region:||USA » California » Santa Barbara County » Santa Ynez Valley|
|Varietal:||Grenache , Mourvèdre , Syrah|
My last vintage was the 2010 and I liked it very much, this - better. I like fuller bodied wines and this fit the bill nicely. Plenty of blueberry, violets, pepper on the nose, leading to notes of vanilla, earth and spice on the palate. Medium chewy ...

At first was only 3 stars, but improved after 15 minutes in the glass. Nose had cedar, cherry and olives. Viscous and chalky in mouth, with notes of pepper. Finish was maybe a little too tight. This wine may drink better next year.

Happy Halloween, wine lover! This hallowed holiday isn't just for kids. Adults can and should enjoy their favorite Halloween candies with a little bit of wine. Wine and Halloween candy pairings may be contrived, but that doesn't make them any less fun. In fact, these pairings are quite complex. They are a fine and delicate art not suited to the ...

Fairly light for a Buehler but then the '12 wasn't the best for several Zin producers. Some dark and red berry fruits, spice, plum and herbal notes. Better than before - 88 pts - drink now - Paul Read More

Haven't put up one of these in awhile. This time will make things more specific and real, in that you will need to imagine you're hosting a meal at this restaurant in London's Soho. It's something I did a few times during my period of busy London business visits at the end of the '80s through early last decade. The first time I sweated a bit bec... Read More
OK, since several people made some kind comments, I'll add this to my previous post about the Keenan and that CF.First, yes, it is a very good wine.Several people here, know that I am a Keenan cheerleader. I confess that I am a member of their club. So, twice a year they send me a four-bottle package. Keenan is, mostly, a red wine producer, b... Read More
The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More
Okay, I have no idea how to do this. I posted what I thought was an intro a week or two ago and I cannot find either my post or any of whatever replies there might have been. Computers and the arcane rituals one has to perform in order to make sense of any of this crap are an absolute mystery to me. I am a MENSA member so I know perfectly wel... Read More
