Alchemy Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

First time for this producer and very rarely have wines from the Orange District. Lovely aromatics, not really Cab Sauv but then I noticed the blend was 45% Cab Sauvignon; 45% Cab Franc; 10% Shiraz. A lovely Aussie right bank rendition you might say. Red and black fruits with plum and tobacco notes. The palate is sweetish and luscious texture with supple tannins. This wine proves that Orange Is an accredited Australian wine district for both Reds and Whites taking in Hilltops. Have experienced the excellent whites from here and must seek out more Reds based on the quality of this wine. — 8 days ago

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Sarsons Monkstown, 45€ Rediscovering Chianti Classico, ticked all the boxes and more, superb wine with blackcurrant, plum, awesome soft tannins (and quite surprised by this), vibrant colour and good on the nose. — 18 hours ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Les Hauts De Pontet Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

45+ decant but needed closer to 2 hours. Dark purple in color. Nose was all over the place - US, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy. Wine had minimal fruit, plenty of wood, and lots of Portuguese elements. Would have guessed California or Portugal if having blind. Depth was medium as well as the finish. Ample tannins. Expected more from the label and vintage. — 17 days ago

Rose de Vignes Le Mesnil Sur Oger Brut Champagne Blend Rosé

45% Meunier, 15% PN and 40% Chardonnay. 4 years maturation, dégorgement 12/2019. Dosage 5.5g/l. Lovely salmon color. While rosé is not my preference, this is very good. Red fruits and nice acidity. — 6 days ago

Reserve Burgenland Blaufränkisch 2017

45+ minute decant was perfect. Lovely purple-red color. Nose was bright with more candy elements than fruit. Wine had medium plus depth and medium plus sweetness. Paired very well with pork loin with truffle mustard and brussel sprouts. Medium finish. Great recommendation by a local shop! — 2 days ago

Onde Gravitazionali Nebbiolo 2018

True unicorn wines. This one is a red blend of Piedmont grapes: 50Nebbiolo, 45 Barbera. Fresh red berries, perfumy florals with good acidity and a tingly vibrancy that I get from natural wines. — 9 days ago

Yamhill Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Presents with a beautiful translucent dark ruby red with a clear rim. Medium bodied nice long finish. I am getting cranberries, cherries, rhubarb and wet leaves! Nice wine at 14.5 alc. No burn and going down like candy! A chill on this makes earthy characteristics shine! Opens sufficiently..45 min decant! — 4 days ago

Napa Valley Red Blend 2011

Haven’t posted for a while, but celebrating a strong week at work. Ovid just plain delivers. Shows great after 45 min decant. Pairing with some sourdough and herbed olive oil— great way to start the weekend! Relocated to Minneapolis- let me know if in the area to share a glass! — 10 days ago
