Yarra Valley Heathcote Shiraz Viognier Blend 2019

Lots of black fruits, plus vanilla, dark chocolate, and mesquite smoke. Ripe, rich, round, and concentrated, but amazingly still fresh. Delicious for $20 on Wine Spies. Cheers! — 10 days ago

Simply exquisite! One of Michael best builds. All round hill fruit :) this was gold in GovCup (2019?) This raises the bar for both terroir and maker! — 3 years ago

Final bottle from a mixed case acquired as a part of a Biale wine club shipment in March 2007, ~$46. Incredible deep purple color, sandy+fine sediment. I'm of the opinion that CA Petite Sirah is very similar to Pommard in one aspect, age-ability; these wines seem to live forever and are almost always too young every time. Remembering back to a Stag's Leap Wine Cellars PS (1978) from a while back, proved the longevity of the varietal. I recall a recent post of a Delectable (Conrad Green) cohort with a 1933 Gaunoux Pommard, and he felt it was finally ready... Will this bottle live that long? Unlikely but I'll never be above the ground long enough to find out. Black cherry syrup, blackberry compote, cedar box, blackberry tart, raspberry/cherry jam, fading finish, yet lovely. Hold or drink, likely 2024-30, in proper storage. 2H decant, continuing to unfold. (92-93pts)

Ross Station Estate Chardonnay 2016

Very oaky with very big pop upfront and then a touch of glycerin on the finish. Paired well with seafood. — 3 months ago
