Esprit Barossa Valley Red Rhone Blend 2004

ESF
9.5

Stunner - just dense & inky, brooding effusive nose of a berry compote, rich ripe saturated with pervasive spine of minerality, Herbes de Provence. Just jaw dropping. So soft & plush on palate, like sinking into an old Cadillac, crushed velvet, gobs of dark fruit, sweet baking spices, pepper and extraordinary length on finish. Tasted w/vintner prior to release (knew it would be epic) - drank & sold a lot of this. In the zone now w/many years ahead — 5 days ago

@ESF Great patience for such a delicious wine from the get go.

Coach House Block Single Vineyard Seppeltsfield Road Greenock Shiraz 2015

Rich, with a very jammy edge. Lacking some backbone and started to become flat after two hours. Still an experience. — 12 days ago

Hoffman Dallwitz Little Wine #8 Syrah

Amazingly plush fruited, blackcurrent, raspberry, violet, widely spread on the palette, licorice, a bit of sarsaparilla, spice, ripe pillowy tannin with great length. Great freshness given the spread of vintages in this. — 11 days ago

Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2016

Wine includes fruit from Barossa, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Adelaide and Wrattonbully vineyards. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits with earthy spice. On the palate ripe blackberry, plum and dried cherry flavors with cacao, espresso and black pepper. Fine ripe tannins, well balanced with acidity, long finish ending with fruit and spice, very nice! Drinking well now! — 4 days ago

Bin 150 Marananga Barossa Valley Shiraz 2008

A rich dark crimson in colour. A smoky creosote mocha aroma - plenty of charred oak. Sweet black fruits on the full bodied palate with blackberry and black cherry. A very Penfolds Barossa red. 2008 is the first vintage Penfolds made of the Bin 150. Marananga being a sub district of the Barossa and a noted source of old vine fruit. Typically, this is a pup, at 13 years of age and will cruise to 2030 and probably beyond. — 15 days ago

When I see the name Marananga, all I think of is "Brass Band"! 😁
