2010 E. Guigal Châteauneuf-du-Pape


Blatant barnyard and meaty musk dominate the aromatics of this Southern Rhone classic, as deep dark concentrated fruit, unsweetened black licorice, moderate tobacco presence and dry green herbs mingle with one another upon the palate.  With poetically rounded, soft tannins that grip wonderfully all the way thorough a lengthy finish; this Chateauneuf-du-Pape gives me faith that great modern day wine making still exists. Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

2004 Indigene Cellars Santa Maria Valley Cabernet Sauvignon


Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and drank plenty of great vino!   This Summer has been absolutely amazing and have to tell everyone about the Cabernet from Indigene Cellars i had that was absolutely massive!

Full bodied and elegantly refined this Cabernet has a contemplative, rustic bouquet of rich plum, course ground black pepper and green pepper that is so seductive it makes you want to fall right into the glass, as wonderfully layered flavors of black cherry, vanilla extract and a zest of peppery spice suck you in deeper and deeper with every sip.  Definitely one of the best wines i have ever had from this area, and the perfectly executed toasted oak finish with smooth lingering tannin seals the deal!   Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
