Bowen Estate

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Typical Bowen Estate still showing lovely black current fruit and sweet dusty Coonawarra tannin. Not the greatest vintage of Bowen with only modest length of palate but still lovely Saturday evening drinking. — a month ago

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Have you grabbed your $60 wine subscription sampler from Wine Selectors yet?

This pack includes 12 mini bottles of Aussie wine. Head to the blog to read all about it:

This Leconfield 2020 Cab Sauv came in the sample pack I was sent and it went down a treat! Definitely a nice taster.

In the glass it’s a juicy plum red colour. On the nose it’s rather earthy/forest like alongside having notes of blackberries, and vanilla oak. On the palate it’s fruity and fresh with plentiful black cherries and berry flavours. Nice full flavour without being overpowering. Balanced and delish!

All opinions are my own. Drink what you enjoy!

Phoenix Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Delectable Wine

Inky ruby. Cherry and red berries on the nose, along with a hint of cracked pepper. In a forward, elegant style, offering juicy cherry cola and red currant flavors that deepen with air. Discreet tannins frame the persistent, appealingly sweet finish, which features repeating red fruit and spice notes. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2022)

The Menzies Coonawara Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

Nose has crushed mint, ripe cherries, ripe blackberries, moist cedar, old leather, cherry-infused tobacco and candle wax trailing away.

Palate has ripe blackberries, dried Bing cherries, slight cocoa powder, dried plum, faint spice cake with fading tannins.

2H decant at the time of notes, I think this wants more air to continue developing. A purchase from many, many years past when we were hot on all things Australia. Hidden away for ~20Y in our off-site storage, these bottles recently arrived at the home cellar. I'm not disappointed by the showing tonight, more intrigued about what the next few bottles will bring...

Paired with Allen Bros cover rib (rib cap) and smashed fingerling potatoes; a meal generally dreamed about, realized tonight.

@Paul T- Huntington Beach Chances are good you have some counterfeit stuff, Yellow Tail was only started in 2000, and imported to the US beginning in 2011. Your '95's might have been early experimental juice.


Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz 2014

I tried submitting a tasting note 2 days ago and Delectable didn’t accept it and it then disappeared. The thing I recall the most about this wine was that it tasted more warm climate like Bin 28 and Barossa than Bin 128 and cool climate from Coonawarra. More red and black fruits than the expected spice and pepper. This is the first of 4 and very early in its life. Recalling the 2 x 1998s of Bin 128 I’ve had in the last 18 months like 90% of Penfolds Cuvées Bin 128 is built to cellar. — a month ago

Black Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Coonawarra mint together with blackberry aromas. Cabernet tannins with a touch of bitterness - quite firm even though medium weight - tasting way younger than 13 years. The Wynns Black Label Cabernets have amazing longevity from their extensive resources of premium Coonawarra Cabernet fruit. One of the best value Cabs in the district The current vintage (2019) can be sourced for around $30. This 2009 will last until well into the 2030s. — 3 months ago
