What I like about wine:

nose: spicy, charcoal, fruity (berry). the spicy part doesn't come out until the wine warms up. taste: hint of lime and smokey-ness. the fruitiness of the grape continues to dominate. the tannin is like the critics said - very silky. finish: light,

    In short - EXCELLENT!! I never quite understood why people drink champagne to celebrate special occasions until I have the Clos de Mesnil myself. Everything - from the packaging, the royal golden color, to the honey & almond taste and smooth finish - was simply impeccable. It was no doubt an expensive tasting experience, but also one that I didn't regret having (whether or not it is worth it it's completely subjective).

    Concha y Toro Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
    Sold Out $74.99
    2013 vintage available for $105.00
    the nose was very complex and paulliac like with the oak scent. the taste and finish however was too simple/plain. 2006 definitely needs a good hour of decanting to smooth out the tannin.

    Ravenswood Big River Zinfandel 2006
    Sold Out $28.99
    2013 vintage available for $29.99
    Good red fruit & vanilla-sweetness + a hint of earthy/mineral nose and taste. A rather sweet wine w/ tiny sweet after taste. But the wine lacks surprises/character and frankly I would pick something in the $20-30 range from Chile/Argentina over this, which is priced at $40.
