Wine of the Day - WOTD - 2023

Picked up one of these for a cooking white as my daughter was in Italy recently. Drinkable. No harsh notes. Pear.

Bogle Cabernet 6/10
Very thin
Nice mineral notes
Sweet, not overbearing at all
Nice table wine probably especially for non wine drinkers, simple to say the least

For the price it’s alright, I would prefer to browse sales on other wines, though I did want to try a highly regarded budget wine.

That’s the Cab in the glass. Enjoyed the Sangiovese much more, but the Cab would probably benefit from more time.

I smell like a Christmas pudding
We are having our celebration meal this Christmas Eve. My daughter is home from University and we are having these two wines, a 1992 Barolo and a 1989 St.Emllion. I purchased these bottles when they were new and I was a student at University myself. I have kept them for a special occasion and now seems as good a time as any. 'Unfortunately' I quit drinking in 2016 so I will not be having any 🤣

Dom. Robert Chevillon NSG 1er Cru "Les Cailles", 2006


An impressing wine from a solid but not exceptional year in Burgundy. Elegant and with a wonderful structure, dark fruit (black cherry, also some plum). Medium to full bodied, refined. Long, complex finish. A delight.

Merry Christmas, Gents! 🍷
 
So we tried port tongs for the first time and wound up with the neck cracking before applying the ice water! We’re thinking the bottle had not fully warmed to room temp after leaving the cooler. No harm to the contents, however! This ‘97 Fonseca is a little farther along than the Graham’s ‘97 we opened earlier this year. It’s just starting to turn in color and nose/palate to dried fruit. Still has plenty of improving to do! Looking forward to perfecting the tongs!
