2007 Diochon Moulin-á-Vent Vieilles Vignes (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-1-2010

Sweet violets and cherries up front. Some tart or sour flavours arrive in the middle - raspberry and cranberry. Perhaps a bit of strawberry in there as well. Has some earthy, forresty components. Unique and interesting, but not mind-blowing.

Black berries with a smokey edge. Not too complex, but well balanced. Fine for drinking now, but could use some time in the glass.

Dark berries and cherries in the front, and bit of mocha and earth arrives in the middle. Some slight woody spice and anise notes linger on the finish underneath the solid fruit core. A very satisfying wine.

2004 Adega Cartuxa "Évora" Alentejo (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-1-2010

Sour, woody and earthy. Tar and rose flavours like a borolo, but with some cherry cola. Tastes a bit like kirsch and barbecue to me. I was disappointed with this wine, but that's not to say that I think it is a poor quality effort. This wine is just not at all made in a style I enjoy. If you are looking for a red to mate with a southern dish of blackened catfish, potatoes, and collared greens, then this may be a good choice for you. Probably also good with ribs.

2005 Jean-Louis Denois Chardonnay "Sainte Marie" Vin de Pays d'Oc (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-1-2010
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Has a floral and citrus bouquet with subtle, sweet, creamy oak nuances. This is very fine, rich, and balanced. A fantastic wine worth twice the price. I will buy this again. This is a good example of the style and superior quality of white wines produced in southern France.

Sweet roses and red berries are in front. It is a bit yeasty and has slight cola and leather notes. Needs time to soften. I'd love to try it again in a couple of years.
Drink from 2011 to 2017

2005 Swanson Napa Valley Merlot (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-1-2010
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Lots of marionberry and cherry with anise and cola. Has pepper and spice with floral notes blending in nicely on the nose. A bit of forest creeps in over time. First appears sweet, but finishes dry with rather sturdy tannins. This really changes in the glass. Homely marionberry pie develops into bold and dry California merlot.

2006 Girard Napa Petite Sirah (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-1-2010
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Sweet blueberry jam in front with clove and peppery spice. Earthy, with wood and gravel notes in the middle. Some lavender, and a hint of pastis in there as well with bits of bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Some alcohol warmth kicks in, but it is not overpowering, It is a little gritty at first, but really tones down with time. Very rich, complex, dark, and exquisite. The wine gained vanilla, nutmeg, cedar notes after an hour.

2008 d'Arenberg "Hermit Crab" Viognier-Marsanne (out of stock)

Pear up front with lime, stones and lemon. There are light notes of nectar, honey, orange peel and apricot. A bit buttery and toasty, and then comes a nutty, sweet, crisp, long and refreshing finish. I caught a slight coconut note in middle. There is perhaps a bit of clove in there as well.

Raspberry in front with some licorice. It's grapey and stoney in the middle. The lightly toasty oak glides in, and is a bit smokey and woody on the finish. A spicy and full wine.

2008 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough (out of stock)

Shows exotic fruits like mango, guava, and pineapple. Also some wet stones and minerals. Has some strong, ripe apple or pear notes, a bit of lime, and a touch of lemongrass. The wine is very crisp and refreshing, which makes it good with food.

2004 Marques de Vargas Reserva Rioja (out of stock)

Peppery blackberry in front. Wet earth, wood, spices, bay leaf and tea (Oolong?) show up. Vanilla notes influenced by some light oak is present. Some smoke and a bit of rose are in the middle as well. Tart cherry on finish, with perhaps some olive. Tannins and acids are interwoven well, balancing the wine out, making this smooth but structured.
Drink from 2009 to 2013

Lots of black fruit. Some anise and lavender in there with a touch of vanilla oak. Jammy and smoooothe. Very focused, concentrated, and delicious. I loved this wine.

Dark berries in front. Scorched earth, toasty oak, some flint and bit of graphite enter in the middle. A bit mushroomy towards the finish with flowers and a touch of bittersweet chocolate. Full mouthfeel, although somewhat short and shallow.

Blackberry and blueberry open it up, with anise, wet stones, a bit of smoke, some earth, and tobacco leaf joining the complex mix of flavours in this wine. It is slightly jammy, then adds touches of cherry, cranberry, strawberry, vanilla and spice over time. Very complex with air.
