Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

2003 Reserve De L'Estey

Is this French Bordeaux improved? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe it's just from a very ripe year. In any event, it's got very good fruit, and a bit of tannin that suggests it will improve over the next year or two. For only $7 at Trader Joe's, this Medoc from Calvet is a good one for "Ryan's Cellar" and yours, although it's fine to drink right now with anything from chicken to beef.
