Arlyn Vineyard Gamay Noir 2019

Summer yum …. Killer gamay noir from Pinot/chard experts. We all need more light bodied summer reds that dance across your palate at cellar temp. Low ABV… light purple, cherry, berry, juicy sweetness with lively acid driving the fruit towards the finish. The bottle was gone too quickly with smash burgers and hand cut fries. Reminder to self: buy more next year, — 10 days ago

Close Planted Yarra Valley Grenache 2017

Nose not giving much initially - just an earthy note - fairly contained. Probably opened a little young? The next night it showed red fruited aromatics of raspberry and strawberry. Very fine on the palate and quite delicious. The winemaker and owner Tom Carson with his French wife, Nadege, just won Viticulturalist of the year 2 days ago in the Halliday Wine Awards. They also import a range of Burgundies. In his “spare time “ Tom is also the winemaker at the highly regarded Yabby Lake. — 14 days ago

Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

This is a delicious Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast. Rich, complex and elegant.

Light burgundy in color with a wide reddish rim.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Showing red currants, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, light vegetables, tobacco, chocolates, light barnyard, coffee and peppercorn.

This Single Vineyard is nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself as a sipping wine.

This 8 year old is peaking now, although it will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.

Thank you Scott for sharing.

This is a bold, well-balanced pinot. Red cherry eithout being too acidic; hint of fireworks and wet volcanic rock (but not too much). $63, would drink again. — 9 days ago

Long finish with very little tannins and sour cranberries.

This 12 year old Pinot Noir from Napa Valley is delicious now. Showing nice complexity with a soft mouthfeel.

Actually, it feels more like a Burgundy Pinot Noir. Interesting stuff.

Easy drinking and good right out of the bottle. Nicely balanced and good by itself.

This Single Vineyard Pinot Noir is peaking now. A great sipping wine.

Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.

Three Twins Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, dried figs, tobacco, raisins, cedar, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, chocolates, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, espresso, vanilla, spices, light earth, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This 9 year old, from the great 2013 vintage, is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 3 hours in the decanter.

Another wonderful wine from the hands of Mike Smith. Rich, elegant, fruit forward and extracted.

Getting to be at its peak, but not there yet, although very enjoyable at this point. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Robert Parker 93 points.
