Elouan Pinot Noir 2016

Oregon, United States
25 minutes ago

Jenny scored this wine: 88/100

Deep dark red colour and mouth filling red fruit to match. Easy drinking, commercial style with plenty of oak spice and a voluptuous approachable finish. Serve it with grilled beef tacos. @wrightwineblog

St. Francis Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Sonoma County, California, United States
30 minutes ago

Jenny scored this wine: 90/100

A minted chocolate nose with a herbal note. Concentrated sweet red fruit on the palate. Fresh acidity makes for a refreshing, slightly leaner style with firm grippy tannins that will give this wine longevity. Balanced with a long blackcurrant finish. Try it with salted rump steak with chimmichurri. @wrightwineblog

Girard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Napa Valley, California, United States
35 minutes ago

Jenny scored this wine: 92/100

A big black brooding Napa Cab that is characteristically ripe. It's thick and glossy and streaked with blackberry and cherry with wafts from summer pudding smothered in chocolate. Tannins are firm with some earthiness and will allow for some ageing of this wine. Pair it with Prosciutto and caramelised onion roasted beef.

Böen Pinot Noir 2017

Santa Barbara County, Sonoma County, California, United States
42 minutes ago

Jenny scored this wine: 88/100

Deep red opaque colour which is most untypical for a Pinot. The nose is forthcoming with soft cherry and blackberry. A very easy drinking, palate pleasing wine without much complexity. Well made with clean flavours. Lacks a certain Pinot typicity. Try it with a pork belly and calamari paella.

Quinta Da Cavadinha

Warre's Quinta Da Cavadinha Port 2006

Douro D.O.P., Portugal
50 minutes ago

Jenny scored this wine: 93/100

An inky black explosion of coffee and mocha with twists of licorice and a finish laced with heavy dark molasses. Notes of tar, wrapped in rose petals - a mouth filling glass, make sure you're sitting down. No obvious sign of ageing, perfectly fresh for a 2006. Try with salted dark chocolate truffles
