    Ruby red with Browning on the rim. Medium to full body. Soft red fruit, forest floor, glycerin, tobacco leaf, violet. Can still taste the tannins, but well integrated and soft, bring a layer of chewiness. Dried leather, wet wood, cocoa powder, pencil.shaving, bit of mushroom. Soothing on the nose, gentle on the palate. Wonderful treat. Tasty tannins making it felt, with just enough acidity to keep it balanced, nice. Added some nice weight.with air time.

    Dark purple hue, nose of ripe black fruits currants, sugar coated cherry, violets, licorice, truffle, wet wood. Taste of ripe black fruits, cigar wrapper, jam, expresso bean. Finish with plum, light tobacco leaf. Tiny bit of heat, medium finish. Bit one dimension, not complex enough, smooth, easy on the palate. Expand deliciously, with strong currants and cream bulee. More better structure.

  • Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classe 2003 one year ago Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classe 2003
    Ruby red and medium bodied. Nose of red fruits, graphite, crushed stone. Taste kinda light, with soft tannins, dry. Similar note on palate, cassis liqueur, graphite and smoke, short on structure and blurry taste. Short finish. Seems lacking a clear identity. Finally opened after 1.5 hour in the decanter, mineral nose with spice, currants. Softer tannin, still dry though.
  • Chateau Leglise Clinet Pomerol 1997 one year ago Chateau Leglise Clinet Pomerol 1997
    Dark red, with slight Browning at the rim. Full bodied. Currants, dark fruits, licorice, cocoa, minerals, touch of herbs quite nice, though not crisp. Taste of cigar wrapper, smoke, coffee bean, with a drop of oak. Nice nose, though short. Tannins still apparent and dry. Acidity is low, couldn't mask the alcohol that well, even low level 12.5%. Structure is solid, lacking a good balance. Finish of smoke, bitter dark cocoa. Short unfortunately
  • Kelly Fleming Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009 one year ago Kelly Fleming Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009
    Nose is actually kinda low key, with only cream and sweetness, star fruit?? Close to full bodied. Extremely smooth, very ripe, but not over the top. Sugar coated cherry, orange zest, anise. Super smooth, great structure as always. Syrupy With time and air, nose of black currant, licorice coming out. Super tasty, chewy tannins, no hard edges at all for a young wine. Medium to full bodied Finish is decent, with vanilla note and light tea leaf The high alcohol level is masterfully hidden, brilliant. Slowly, developed iron, mineral nose

    Dark ruby red, appear still quite youthful, with clear scents of cassis, green pepper, earth, pencil lead, Asian spice, vanilla on the nose. Fantastic. Although fruit smell goes quite fast. Palate wise, lighter than the nose scents, gentle and smooth, plum, tobacco leaf, brunt cherry notes. Softened tannins, thou it's present can be felt gracefully, very tasty. Finish with tobacco and marmalade, medium finish, quite nice. Medium to full bodied. Second glass, brilliant, with chocolate, cigar box taste. Kept evolving, really nice treat. Tasty secondary scents, cocoa, tobacco, burnt leather, slight bitterness. Lingers. Treat! Pristine condition

  • Kelly Fleming Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 one year ago Kelly Fleming Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
    Beautiful ruby red, almost purple in color. Nose of vanilla, oak, blueberry, licorice, crushed stone. Smooth on the palate, though more tannic than the 08. Plum, tannic is very grippy and a bit overpowering, light strawberry. Evolved with some Smokey finish. Yet still very tannic. Nice structure, lacking the balance it seems from the 08. Later with graphite, slight leather. Great nose.

    Dark purple, opaque, mid night darkness. Strong nose of currants, violet, blueberry, black fruits, meat, nut, barnyard. Medium to full bodied. Grippy tannins. Notes on palate lacks structure and balance or complexity. Plum, oak, rather plain, lacking excitement. As a whole, lacking surprises.
