Block 5 Pinot Noir 2009

See notes from 26 weeks ago where I gave this wine 95 points, up a point now to 96 points+. A superb Pinot Noir where previous notes apply and then some. Slightly more earthy “gout de terroir”. Compost heap and Sous Bois. One of Australia’s best Pinots and definitely of Premier Cru/Grand Cru quality at a fraction of the price. Sadly my last 2009. — 4 days ago

@Severn Goodwin I hope so Severn. I wouldn’t mind an excursion to New England either. Overdue for a visit to New York to see my son.

De Bortoli

Deen Vat Series No. 5 Botrytis Sémillon 2014

@ 6 years old, drinking perfect. Incredible balance of sweet and acid ensures it's not too flabby. Really complex & pleasant notes of apricot marmalade citrus orange peel cheese dried apricot stone and not overly honeyed. Each taste brings a new depth of flavor. 4.1/9.1 — 20 days ago

Rocca delle Macìe

Famiglia Zingarelli Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend

Sangiovese 90%
Colorino 5%
Cabernet Sauvignon 5%.
Didnt think the DOC allowed non- native varietals. Anyway, cherry galore. 14.5 alcohol/ a bit surprising. Little tannic on the finish by itself, but shines with roasted chicken.

Clos Saint Jean

Deus Ex Machina Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Even better than last year’s bottle, which I called “the devil’s work” and rated 95. So much more emerging and the finest, grainy tannins just melted on my plate. Burnt cocoa, velvety cassis. Never got warmed up due to Covid doors open. This has decades to go. — 4 days ago
