Fantastic varietal offering from a great vintage. This RESERVE bottling provides extended time in barrel and sorting. Very well made! More please :) — 2 days ago
Visually opaque in the bottle and glass. Still showing well on day 2.
Lemon sherbet nose￼. Palate is lifted and displays complexity. Exotic fruits are supported by just the right amount of acidity. Mid palate shows moderate sweetness and briskness. In our minds, best Bevan SB in the last few years. This will keep for a while longer, but best enjoyed now. — 6 days ago
The 2016 Chianti Classico Argenina is fabulous. Dark cherry, gravel, sage, mint and leather bring out the darker side of Sangiovese in a Chianti Classico that captures all the pedigree of this great vintage. The 2016 is intense in the glass, and yet retains so much Sangiovese translucence. $24.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2020) — 4 days ago
Deepest red amber echoes eponymously, chaos ensuing in its lofty-top curtain drop of ocean foam encroaching and Cyprus knee lacing. Pine nettle, maple flower, bruised banana and overripe pineapple. Cinnamon toast and caramelizing Vidalia onion aromas. There is an ocean brine and orange blossom back breeze. Heavier mouthfeel accents tastes of orange-honey, marmalade, resinous malts, bay leaf, oregano and nutmeg leading to grapefruit and kumquat. Pleasantly aggressive hops applied with sage leaves in this double ipa. #sixpointbrewery #brooklynbeer #nybeer #newyorkbeer #resin #sixpointresin #resiniipa #IIPA #doubleipa #dipa #indiapaleale #beer #bier #biere #birra #cerveza #cerveja #ale #ipa — 4 days ago
Far too early to crack this open, but I couldn't resist.
It starts a bit like a good Beaujolais from a casual Oz Foillard, but with time loses some vibrancy to unfold complexity. I believe Joshua has found a magnificent vineyard that expresses a wine with many shade and has minerality and freshness quite rare for a red in Australia. I bid on him to become a future benchmark in the local market.
Macedon Ranges are going to become a new Eldorado for pinot...at least I hope...
BTW the 2017 vintage was poured by the glass at the Eleven Madison restaurant in New York, first Oz wine by the glass there. — 6 days ago
