2005 Chateau Soleil-Puisseguin Saint Emilion


Thick, dark plum hue lending a bouquet of violets, mild vanilla, limestone and heavy musk.   Really had high aspirations for this wine, but was dumbfounded and disappointed by how heavily oaked it was; I did enjoy the flavors of black currant complimented by remnants of tobacco and herbaceousness though.  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

2008 Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon


Just wanted to send out a shout about the Barons De Rothschild Los Vascos Cabernet from Chile.   This wine for an everyday wine at $9 a bottle is stellar.   Medium bodied with a hint of soil and consistent flavors of red and dark cherry, this wine is a standbye for me and never disappoints.  Keep Believing and Keep Drinking.
