2005 - West, Mark Pinot Noir California Pinot Noir

One Dimentional Fruit Bomb

Oct 07, 2008
1 star
This was a thin, one dimentional, fruit forward, and watery pinot noir.  Not much flavor beyond the initial burst of cherry.  Cheap party wine.

2004 - Vina Carmen Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon

Best Chilean Cab

Oct 07, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
This is one of the best Cabs I've had and surely ther best Chilean Cab I've ever tasted.  Full bodied with loads of black fruit.  Strong and Jammy with a good amounts of vanilla and chocolate.  Its a flavor parade on the tongue.  This wine will show well through steak, roast beef, lamb chops, and even spicy Indian food.

2001 - Lynch Bages  Bordeaux Blend

Better than expected for a 2001 Bordeaux

Medium to full bodied, well balanced classic Bordeaux.  Exhibits dark dried fruits, BBQ smoke, and some earthiness.  I'm glad I have another bottle as I think it will improve over the next 5 - 10 years.
