Had this cheapo last night. I haven't had a Cinsaut before. It was ok, reminded me of a Beaujolais.
No one ever got back to me on this: http://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=5706 2000 Château Haut-Bages Libéral. Ready to drink?
Parker says yes.
I shall have to drink it this weekend then.
I love reading Cellar Tracker tasting notes. "Brilliant but brooding appearance."
I would give that wine at least 15 and probably 20.
15 years more or from vintage date?
yeah but remember that I am sort of a wine necrophiliac.
I always keep that in mind.
A customer came in tonight with this bottle of wine. So of course, a 20 year old bottle, I went out to talk to him. Ended up really liking him, he's coming to my wine dinner tomorrow. We comped his appetizers and in return he gave us half of this bottle. And it was absolutely delicious.
Is that from Middle Earth?
South Africa. Surprisingly good.
Some wonderful wine this week, highlighted by the outstanding Columbia Valley Syrah from Dunham Cellars (no photo), one excellent Pinot and one outstanding (both Willamette Valley). Aubichon. One to watch. Pure velvet, cherry and strawberry exquisitely made at $47. Could challenge a Kistler in its structure. Yes, that good.
