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.

Cline 2010 Ancient Vines Mourvedre


Delicious medium bodied red lending generous flavors of plum, dark chocolate and mountain black cherry with a hint of smoke and mild tannin.  Great sipper and would pair very well with a hearty pork roast. Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
