Reserve Carménère 2016

Dark purple. Deep aroma of plums and smoke and fruit molasses. Flavors are rich and boisterous. Tobacco. Cherry pits. Plenty of acids. Zippy. Elegant. This is very tasty stuff. And fancy enough to have alone or for a nice date or dinner. — 6 days ago

Canobolas-Smith

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. — 4 days ago

Canelones Tannat 2015

Since me trip to Uruguay was cancelled, I’m drinking Uruguay wines when possible. Don’t know much about tannat grape. I like it . Not sure how will age. Could be a drink now wine . Dark red ,chewy, earthy with subdued fruit. Good finish . A fair amount of sweet tannins. — 19 days ago

Turley

Dogtown Vineyard Zinfandel 2002

I had my doubts, and I’m glad I didn’t hold it a day longer, but this is lovely now. Deep transparent ruby, with a musty perfume of ripe red and purple fruits, raisins, fruit leather, a little balsamic note and allspice. Fruit on the palate is stewed but vibrant, with some orange peel bitterness adding complexity on the finish. Decanted off sediment, but didn’t need any time to air.. very delicate and aromatically open at this point. — 3 days ago

Nothing better than well-aged Zinfandel 👍

@Severn Goodwin I hadn’t tried any nearly this old before, but found some vintage Turley on sale at blacksmith wines for less than the cost of current release, so it was a no-brainer! Always nice to try something new.

Shirah

Bro.Deux Red Blend 2016

This Cabernet Sauvignon blend from California is drinking very nicely now, as a 4 year old. I had this vintage a year ago, and it is better now.

Showing red and black fruits with wood, earth, vanilla, licorice, peppercorn, pencil lead, tobacco, chocolates and coffee.

Full bodied with medium acidity. Spicy with nice complexity.

Nice length on the finish with round tannins.

Good right out of the bottle, fruit forward and good by itself or with food. Nice, enjoyable and a good quality wine.

I gave it a light chill and had by the pool.

A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Petit verdot. Kosher non mevushal

Only 13.7% ABV, which I loved.

89 points.

$45.
