Tablas Creek Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles Côtes de Tablas 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Tablas Creek Vineyard Côtes de Tablas is a blend of four estate-grown Rhône varietals: Grenache, Syrah, Counoise and Mourvèdre. Like most wines of the Southern Rhône, it is a blend of varietals, featuring the fruit and spice of Grenache balanced by the spice and mineral of Syrah, the appealing briary wildness of Counoise, and the structure of Mourvèdre. The 2009 Côtes de Tablas shows a rich, minty nose with dark chocolate, cherry, leather, licorice and crushed rock. The mouth explodes with dark cherry, with nice chalky Grenache tannins giving firmness. The very long finish lingers with flavors of licorice, spice and cherry liqueur. Our most concentrated Cotes de Tablas ever; it should drink well young but also cellar happily for a decade. Food Pairings: Grilled steaks, pastas with meat sauces, rich beef stews, spicy sausages.

The White vine Terras de Lantaño smells fresh and with a little taste of strawberries..... A really "superb· vine, but cheap.

£14.22 2011 http://www.montalbera.it/eng/ruche.php Società Agricola Montalbera S.r.l. - via Montalbera, 1 - 14030 Castagnole Monferrato (At) ITALY - montalbera@montalbera.it £14.22 2011 Quite light. Not very serious since it starts out being very fruity. But then it moves on to give that classic Piedmont depth; this is true especially after its left open for a while/day. Overall its too (in a strange way) fruity for me. Perhaps the 2 rating is a bit harsh but not by much; I think I can find much better.

This wine was made under the supervision of Harald Junglen of Weingut Ackermann. He has been making Riesling in the middle Mosel for years, and Weingut Ackermann is a family-owned winery for many generations. With Harald's guidance and expertise, wine maker Barnaby Tuttle was able to capture the true style and essence of a German Riesling. Even though the fruit was grown in clay, and not slate- this Riesling has that petrol quality on the nose and lively tart zing with the right amount of residual sugar to balance it out. This '09 Riesling was listed as NW Palate's Magazine top wines for 2010.

Very Pale green color, kabinet-ish smell and mouthfeel. Kaffir Lime, Asian Pear, and even some rockiness and wet pavement in the finish... How can this be new world Riesling? Its too good!

Sauvignon Blanc trocken 2009 (1l) - Herrenberg - Lergenmüller : Sauvignon Blanc trocken 2009 (1l) - Weißwein von Herrenberg - Lergenmüller Dieser Weißwein zeigt eine ganz typische Sauvignon Nase nach frisch gemähtem Gras, grünen Stachelbeeren und ein wenig Johannisbeeren. Er ist lebendig, frisch mit Saft und Kraft und viel aromatischem Spiel. Am Gaumen erinnert dieser Sauvignon Blanc von Herrenberg - Lergenmüller wieder an frisch gemähtes Gras, Heu, Stachelbeeren, aber auch Aprikosen kommen ins Spiel. Der Gesamteindruck bleibt schlank und ausgewogen und damit ergibt sich ein perfekter und unkomplizierter Terrassenwein.Weingut: Herrenberg - LergenmüllerLand: DeutschlandRegion: PfalzRebsorte: Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 1 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,80 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,60 g/lRestsüße: 5,00 g/l Pfalz

The sensational 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Feminessance which is 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah aged in small oak has the densest opaque color of all three cuvees. This wine has fabulous fruit concentration and comes across as a wonderful segue way between the traditional and the modern styles of Chateauneuf du Pape. Full-bodied pure and certainly a star of the vintage this wine can be drunk now or cellared for up to 12-15+ years. It is a brilliant achievement in 2009 and I kept going back to the glass for another whiff of the kirsch and black raspberry notes. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Fresh showing a nice purity to the red and black cherry fruit fragrant spice notes and tangy minerality. Elegant and balanced with a moderate finish. Drink now through 2022. -BS Wine Spectator.

The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny is flashy ripe and seductive. As good as this is there is a slight element of heat that detracts from the wine s overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
