2014 Meyney: A beauty!

A beautifully crafted St. Estephe. Big but without rough edges. The bouquet filled the kitchen immediately after uncorking. Splendid deep ruby color. Great finish. Quite spicy. Oh and the price is like $28-30. Serious stuff that will drink well in the JimHow young phase or twenty years from now. Ano...

I just had my first experience with this company, purchasing 6 bottles of 2014 Duhart Milon at a competitive price. It was a positive experience. They seem to have quite a selection of wines. Thinking of buying some Burgundies from them. Have others here had experiences with them? https://www.jjbuck...

Re: The 2014 Lafon Rochet has been uncorked....

This wine is a star. But don't expect your friends at the office Christmas party to like it. Jeff Leve calls it the best Lafon Rochet ever and he may be right. Brilliant nose, classic St. Estephe, wonderfully austere, 13.5% (I guess a little surprisingly). It is stoic, structured, raspberry, raspish...

Re: 2014 Duhart Milon

It is not a Latour, Mouton, Lynch, GPL type of Pauillac.
It is more Lafite, Cos in style.

2014 Duhart Milon

The overriding characteristic of this wine is its Lafite-like cedar. It is structured, restrained, classy, 2002-like. Medium bodied, ruby colored, lead pencil on the nose, a classic Pauillac. If you like the big fleshy merlots from the right bank, well, they aren't mutually exclusive, I like the '14...
