Customer Reviews - Derek

Derek
Born in Tours, France. Highly partial to Burgundy, also fond of Loire valley not so well known crus, occasional Bordeaux drinker, preferrably exceptionally good. Still finding my way through the maze of Californian wines. I tend to favor subtle and well balanced wines, with enough acidity, and elegant tannins.

OK .. this is a run of the mill CdR. White gives it some appeal but it lacks complexity or subtlety.

2007 Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara Pinot Noir (out of stock)

I am a Burgundy fiend. This is not a burgundy, but this is not either a big, way too alcohoolic Pinot. Nice and subtle, like a Pinot should be, if lacking some complexity. You could get way less Pinot for your money.

I like this wine. Full of aromas but not too big or jammy. I like Ridge.

1996 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc

Good, but austere. Classic Bordeaux, lacking some aromas or exuberance. 1996 is an austere year, so it might be the year rather than the chateau. if you like classic bordeaux you won't be disappointed.

OK wine; a touch sweet, typical Barbera. Enjoyable if not fascinating.
