Big & Bold
This one needs a little more time in the bottle. Firm tannins, lots of dark fruits, and oak. Really opens up the second day. Looking forward to trying this again in a year or two. Can drink now with a couple hours of decanting if you like 'em big and bold.
good, but not great. Was expecting more from a wine rated 94pts. Plenty of fruit, tannins, oak, and enough acid to give it some weight. balanced, with medium finish. There are better 07 napa cabs for the money.
Smooth & Supple
Lovely, elegant Pinot. Very reminiscent of old world burgundy style wine. Extremely smooth, lots of fruit balanced by acid and spice. Not quit a 5 star, but close. Great effort and excellent PQR.
very nice. Tart cherries, good fruit and balance. needs time in the bottle or decant for a couple hours before drinking. Great buy for price. Would buy again.
delicious. decant an hour before drinking. jammy, juicy red fruits, smoke and spices. dry, soft fine tannins on the palate, nice long finish. great QPR.
very nice merlot. decant an hour before drinking. the nose opened up nicely, with lots of jammy fruits, mint, minerals, and spices. complex without overwhelming the palate. this wine is fairly dry with good tannins and acid, giving it some weight and balance.
somewhat thin and disappointing. not much fruit and the finish was rather short. was expecting more tannin considering the vintage. drink now.
nice bordeaux blend. decanting an hour before drinking brings out the fruit. from start to finish ripe red fruits are well integrated with oak, musk, soft tannins and acidity. very balanced overall and impressive. good QPR.
good, not great. this wine is dry, oaky, with decent fruit on the palate. compared to louis martini napa cab, it was a bit underwhelming. wine opened up a bit the second day, evidenced by more fruit on the palate, but perhaps a little more time in the cellar would improve the wine.
louis martini never fails to impress. great nose, bursting with lots of dark red fruits, well integrated tannins and acid. decant for an hour. drinking nicely now.
