Wine notes from Thursday at Darlene ( Vine Expressions)
8 January 2010
Here are some notes from Thursday's wholesale tasting: Matt - Republic 2007 MontGras Quatro Chile An elegant but powerful wine. Entering mouth you can feel sweet, soft and round tannins. At mid mouth we can feel its weight and power, showing as a wine with good structure. At the end, where we can still remember the black fruit, leave a bit more but in a less shy way its path through French oak. Romeo LIKE. Look for it on our menu. Eric- Megawine 2005 Kiamie, Kuvee â€œPaso Roblesâ€ Vineyard Sources: Halter Ranch Vineyard, DeBro Vineyard, Hopkins Vineyard, Beckwith Vineyard; Westside Paso Robles. The vineyard sources used in this blend are all from the Paso Robles Westside, a region well-known for its calcareous soils which are more closely akin to the premium winegrowing areas of Europe than those commonly found in California. Produced entirely from small-lot fermentations, the wine received a full month of maceration prior to pressing, followed by eighteen to twenty months of barrel aging comprising 40% new oak from premier French and Hungarian cooperage houses. The Kiamie Red KuvÃ©e Blend emphasizes neither its Bordeaux nor its RhÃ´ne components, but rather reflects the balance and synergy of all its elements, creating a wine style defined by the blend of its unique fruit. This wine possesses a core of rich fruit enveloped by smooth tannins, providing enough structure to allow up to a decade of cellaring. Romeo- Great notes, private library Salute
