  • 2000 Château La Couspaude – France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru (5/7/2018)

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about 90 minutes.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Lovely aged Bordeaux nose of saddle leather, cigar box, plums and mixed dark fruit. Juicy flavors of black berries, plums and Bing cherries on the medium to long finish. Bright to tangy acidity, firm tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold but I’d lean toward drink.

  • 2012 Clusel-Roch Côte-Rôtie – France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, Côte-Rôtie (2/27/2018)

    My guess was this is a Tempanrillo or a Tempanrillo/Cabernet Sauvignon blend from the Toro region of Spain, likely a 2012 Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos Toro Viña San Román or similar. (90 points)
