Moulin-a-Vent Gamay 2018

Fun to try different vintages in a short time period. The ‘18 shows more dark fruit with a touch of earth. The ‘16 had more spice and citrus. Beautiful and delicious. — 4 days ago

'Hommage a Yves & Jean-Noel Pelletan' Cognac

Subtle and scotch-like in some respects, but nevertheless giving with strong scents of grape skin, wood spice, and white raisin. A bonkers proposition, not only was this Cognac aged in a handmade single cask by the Pelletans, the brandies that went into it are a blend of vintages ranging from 1925-1965 exclusively making this undoubtedly one of the rarest bottlings you could hope to get your hands on. Bottled at natural cask strength and with zero additives or artificial ingredients. Surprisingly pointed in its attack for something this old, but with the complexity and character you'd expect. — 3 days ago

Rioja Vega S. A.

Edición Limitada Tempranillo Blanco 2018

Never heard of Tempranillo Blanco. Is that a grape? Golden, straw colored. Smells like Albariño or a French Rhone type white. Honey, sweet baked goods, sage, carrot seeds and oak. Flavors are strange and unfamiliar. Crisp, zesty, with a streak of tart green apple. Some honey, but not sweet at all. Just a hint of that CA chard stuff with the oak flavors. But it’s not really like any white I can place. Most resembles Rhone white blends. It’s a fun wine to try, and it’s nice. Complex and just a bit funky. — 20 days ago

IDIG GG Riesling 2011

Mid Lemon yellow in colour. Aromas of peach and mineral. On the palate rich peach verging on apricot. Rich texture and power with minimal acid- ready to drink which will give enormous enjoyment to those who partake. Very impressed by this dry German Riesling from Pfalz. The 2019 vintage from Christmann will be a must — 20 hours ago

Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2018

Ok, do not analyze finnish, nose, acidity ect. This is an Italian wine and you have it with Italian food and friends, family, wife, girlfriend... Then it is a 100 point wine. Classic indeed. — 2 days ago

Domaine A

Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

A deep Ruby red. A whiff of H2S and asparagus along with tomato bush on the nose. Some cassis characters on the medium plus bodied palate along with red capsicum. When I first opened this I thought it was a 2006. The graphics on the label are such that it is difficult to pick the difference as the type face is small. I have previous notes on the 2006 which I thought was a bit better and more fruit driven than this 2008. In cool climate Tasmania there will be some seasons where full ripeness of Cabernet Sauvignon will be a challenge. It remains the best Cabernet in Tasmania IMO. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot. — 24 days ago

Suck a Rock Red Rhône Blend 2018

Having made my way through the line of Bocks, Suck a Rock is probably my favorite - it’s uncomplicated and balanced - dark berries and minerals.

Raspberry, blackberry, violets, chalk dust.

Clean and focused.
