Clos De May


Alma May Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Wine No. 8 in the field of 8 Cabernets from the 2009 vintage tasted blind and it proved to be the consensus Winner by a narrow margin over the Les Forts. I loved this and the Palmer 8 years ago at the Cape Mentelle tasting and they remain stunning wines. A wonderful perfume of red flowers, plums, and earth. Medium to Full Bodied with great length. Two of the tasters, long time wine professional, Ken Gargett and Dr Mark Welsh ( head of the Chevaliers in Australia) each gave this wine 98 points. This was Margaret River at its best. Bravo Woodlands and the Watson Family!! — a month ago

I still have to post some random wines brought by the guests - some of which were stellar. Me being the host provided the 8 Cabernets tasted blind.

Art Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Lithe. However, the palate signature displays notes of underripe green veggies and olives. Also lacks sweetness. Tannins are well presented, but this may not evolve to a better place. Overall, disappointing.

Finca El Origen

PHI Single Vineyard Malbec Blend 2010

MEAT up with me to enjoy this wine. Silky acidity kisses fatty cured wild boar and slums the palate so you’re ready for more. Dark and delicious just like the salami with which it pairs. Hint of cigar. Bring this leathery bottle, I may show you some lace. — 4 days ago

Château Dassault

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Fantastic wine, really enjoyed this one. The nose is stewed blackberries, plum, tobacco, baking spice, cedar wood and raisin. This is powerful juice and it tastes rich and almost chewy with the myriad of flavours balancing the tannins and acidity. The palate is ripe dark cherries, light smokey oak, vanilla and winter spices. It has a long elegant fruit driven finish which I liked. This may not suit the purists as alcohol is high and the style is right up in your business but I wish there were more Bordeaux offerings at affordable price points that really make you feel wow, that was just a great reflection of the region that can be enjoyed now, without taking a second mortgage or waiting until a time you may never see to enjoy. Worth grabbing a bottle. — 7 days ago
