Château Lafayette Reneau Roaring Red Estate 2006

Member Review by Philip James:

Off-dry, but not overly sweet. Nice and simple while being very fruit forward as well. Light red fruits - strawberries predominate - some pleasant earthiness balances this. Good finish. Sold by Best Cellars. Tasted at the winery.

Chateau Lafayette Reneau:
We cordially invite you to savor 140 acres of vineyards, ponds, and woodlands. Our brick house and renovated barn/winery are from an earlier, simpler time. The panoramic view of Seneca Lake is absolutely spellbinding. Your visit here is more than another trip to a winery. It's a vacation from daily stress. This is the ideal place to nurture wine & dreams.

I'm a fan! I just finished the bottle after a few days in a capped decanter and this red tastes of pepper, plum, and a light berry flavor I can't describe. Others say cherry but I don't get that, at least not now. Spending 3 days in my decanter did pretty decent things to it. It's got a nice upfront tang and has a long mellow finish. This is one I would buy again.

This is an interesting wine. The oak comes upfront in a big way, but finishing oddly sweet. An unusual combination that is definitely worth a try. This wine has a fairly full flavor and body. Worth a shot.
