Beautiful, fruit forward. Slight spritz so needs a short decant to let out the gas — 15 days ago

The Language of Yes

En Passerillage Grenache 2020

I tried my first bottle of this several months ago, and since then it’s really settled down and blossomed. Light color, but the nose pops with perfumey cherry and raspberry, along with subtle notes of moist earth, spice, and sandalwood. In the mouth, it’s got intense flavors in a floaty carriage, with deep red fruit and lots of savory notes. Long finish, with a teensy bit of tannin. Alcohol in check, and enough acidity to keep the intense fruit buoyed up. Superb. If you’re a Grenache hound like me, get some of this. — 2 days ago

Bodega del Palacio de los Frontaura y Victoria

Nexus Cosecha Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2015

Bright ruby red color. Lovely aromas of tar, leather, charcoal and ripe red fruit. The pallet is bright, featuring that same red fruit. A bit of a woody note on the clean finish. Silky and smooth tannins and lovely balance. Easy drinker. Shows how some bottle age can smooth out and tone down a wine. — 12 days ago

Inocente Macharnudo Vineyard Fino Palomino Fino

A trip down memory lane! This used to be my go-to as a frugal engineering student in Melbourne. It delivered such great bang for the buck, and it still does. Where else can you find an old-school, long-aged wine from a single vineyard for around $20-30? This was briny, yeasty, toasty, nutty, and herbal, with a distinctly salty curry-leaf finish that just keeps growing even after the wine's gone down the throat. Wow! Definitely one of the best QPR in the market in my opinion. — 13 days ago

Opus One

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

A great special occasion wine. Sous vide ribeye and truffle butter pasta made a perfect pairing. Heavy leather on the nose initially but really calms down after only a few minutes of decanting. — 13 hours ago

My favorite opus, purist will say it has too much fruit. But I think it had distinctive fruit, it was a bottle I would crave. I wouldn’t want a Cabernet when I got home I wanted an 07 Opus.

Very young. Needs air. Going to save the other 2 bottles for a few years down the road. I seem to prefer my Cote Roties with some bottle age to them. — 4 days ago
