Black Label Sémillon 1979

The label is barely there, but i bought in the James Halliday's collection auction as a Wood Matured Black label 1979.
At this stage I opened a few of these old semillon and I am honestly loving them even though i realise that not everyone would.
Once they get to room temperature the magic happens.
This is complex and fairly fresh, not gone at all.
I smell almond, bruised apples, nutmeg, ginger, turmeric, lanolin, coriander. Autumn forest floor and boiled chestnuts. Nougat and marzipan. Peppermint.
It's very long. It's an experience. It talks its own language. I don't think there is anything like it anywhere else. 41yo, nearly my age, but much more interesting than me.

Ok, she got me to do Orin Swift tonight. Mercury Head. A lot of fruit. A lot of structur. Mild nose with a hint of fruit. Moderate tannin, but not overbearing. Heavier weight mouth feel. Nice finish. - we did BYOB — 6 days ago

Black Label Syrah Blend 2006

@paxmahle kills it His alternate label exudes a refined Syrah. Deep rich sweet cherry with perfectly refined tannins. Light hints of black pepper add depth and character. Lower amounts of acidity, mean this is ripe for consuming. Just awesome — 8 days ago

Blank Stare Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Lovely nose, white orchard fruit, freshly cut herbs, On the palate typical warm-climate SB, Good freshness when served right from the fridge. Alas, the finish is slightly marred by an abundance of citrus peel bitterness and alcoholic heat (15,5% ABV...)

Black Lady Syrah 2015

Fresh, lush & quite hedonistic, black fruit galore with a whiff of herbs & spice. + a touch of leather & roast and a pinch of black pepper. Velvety & plush on the palate but the juicy acidity balances it perfectly. This is scary drinkable and disappears faster then you’d think and despite the unnoticeable 15-% alc.
Delicious stuff.
