  • Found this one buried in a cold box in my alternate cellar today. Seemed like a solid mid-week choice.  Expected a strong fruity bouquet but wasn't prepared for the blast of blackberry pie and red starburst candy that met my first whiff. Wow. Now that's a Zin. Friday will be a travel day for me, so this wine set up nicely for tomorrow's work wee... Read More

  • Chateau Carbonnieux Carbonnieux Blanc Grand Cru Classe de Graves 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Well, pedigree helps... those seven centuries of development in viniculture at Chateau Carbonnieux (a Grand Cru) helped Pessac-Leognan detach itself from Graves.

  • D--They are impressive, those Chianina.  The Chiangus are interesting, because both animals have dark skin, but the Chianina have white coats, but the Angus have black coats, and because they are clearly a cross.  If you notice (and how could you not?), the Chianina has a long body, high shoulders, but not very long legs, just really meaty.  So ...

  • Honoring the creator of this thread, vin0vin0, who documented his experience with the 2011 version of this wine mere weeks prior to my visiting the same winery An easy wine to like.  Big fruity nose--cherry, stone fruit.  Sure enough an intense hit of cherry flavor on the tongue.  However, strong acid makes it a wild cherry or, maybe, a not quit...
