Re: TN: 2016 William and Mary Cabernet Sauvignon

Day 2:

It seems like the wine has gained a bit of weight on the palate. Still silky smooth with pure fruit. I like it quite a bit more on day 2, suggesting that a bit of age may benefit this wine quite a bit.

Yeah I mean I can see why people would love this wine. For me, it’s excellent, just doesn’t blow me away. That’s not saying it’s not fantastic.

TN: 2016 William and Mary Cabernet Sauvignon

I’ll preface this by saying that I think this is a fabulous Cabernet and one of the better cabs I’ve had in the last couple years along with the 2009 tor cimarossa and 2002 Neal Howell mountain. That said, I think perhaps I was a little let down by the rave reviews I’ve seen lately. Now, the nitty g...

leaning towards fidele just because I have quite a bit of it; I kinda like the idea of trying it young because I know a lot of people like the energy from the young champagne; we'll see how it goes.

TN: 2015 Vincent Dancer Bourgogne Rouge

This is a pretty big, burly bourgogne, pretty characteristic of the 2015 vintage. Dark purple in the glass, there are very nice notes of currants and earth on the nose with very generous palate with fresh, lively acidity. Not overly complex but surprisingly elegant and well integrated. Nice wine for...

Re: Envoyer is crushing it with Champagne these days

Yes it is. I drink a lot of champagne and in the best vintages you'll be well served putting away Dom/Cristal etc as they'll drink well for decades. Two cases of dom at $150 is $3600, which is certainly not cheap, but will offer nice drinking for decades. If you review some of these wine dinner post...
