1989 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes
Review Date: 10-26-2013
Another valiant effort from Doisy! A fruit bomb of Orange marmalade, pears, pineapple and a thick concentrated syrup! This is what dessert should be-Yummy. A super duper Sauterne and absolutely a must buy for any lover of Semillion. This is perfectly aged and ready to drink now. Wines like this don't last for this price for long. A real treat!

1996 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes
Review Date: 10-26-2013
With the prices of vintage D'Yquem soaring through the roof-This is a pleasure to drink now at a very reasonable price! This is a masterpiece! Doisy produced a spectacular bottle of aged sticky! The aroma is of Valencia Oranges, honey and menthol. Tasting this was a treat-supple glycerine and Honey followed by caramel, oranges and more honey. The finish was long and mouth-filling. Drink this with some Roquefort Cheese or by itself. IT IS THAT GOOD!

2005 Cune Imperial Reserva Rioja
Review Date: 10-26-2013
Opened this beauty last night with Gouda & Irish Cheddar. This is a special bottle for sure. Cune produces some of the best Rioja made and this is no exception. The nose is powerful with hints of tobacco, leather & spice. On the palate, the dark plum like fruit is forward with smooth velvet tannins. This is incredibly balanced a full. One could put this away for 20 more years but how can you pass this up now? Luscious Rioja from Spain!

2012 Château Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé
Review Date: 10-26-2013
A Provencal beauty! I know that Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie own this estate but that is not what makes it stand out. This is the perfect wine for a picnic or a brunch on the deck. To start, the pink color is beautiful but one must drink this for total enjoyment. The nose shows citrus & flowers that remind you of springtime. The flavors on the palate begin with layers of tangerine and lime. A crisp fruit flavor with a hint of mint and poached pear on the finish makes this a glorious wine to be enjoyed now. Life is good!
