Redbrook Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Very stemmy/green take on shiraz. The herbal/vegetal/mineral notes dominate the fruit. A barossa protest, but a bit too extreme for my taste. — a month ago

Bellwether

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

See previous notes. Classic Coonawarra mint, black fruits, dark chocolate and cigar box. Singing at 11 years but will go for another decade at least. Barb and I are flying to Adelaide today. Hire Car tomorrow for the 4 1/2 hours drive south to Coonawarra where we will be doing vintage at Bellwether for a week. Should be illuminating, hard work and rewarding with a great tutor in Sue Bell, owner and winemaker. Sue was lucky enough to be one of 12 in the annual Len Evans Tutorial a few years ago where they taste wines most of us can only dream of including flights of DRC, Rousseau etc. Sue was the Dux of her year and is in demand around Australia as a Show Judge. Should be a great week. — 4 months ago

@Robert Evans Jr you suggested infanticide with the 2016 Kosta Browne. This is even more egregious. I actually thought the Pinot was quite good, but I’m pretty new to that world.
This is tight, but everything’s in the right place. Tannins throughout so dusty cherries, currant, and blackberries. There’s and little funk, hope it comes out more later. Have the opp to buy more at a good deal, so grabbed one to try. Gonna grab the rest.

@Paul K i usually hold Cab, Merlot, Syrah a little longer than I do my Pinots. Then again when I buy I always try

Tate

Spring Street Yountville Chardonnay 2018

Light golden color. Creamy and well balanced. Very floral on the nose with hints of lemon and wet stones. Tropical Citrus and pear fruit flavors. Oak is light (French?) and the acidity is bright. Well made. — a month ago

This reminded me of the “dog food” analogy - meaning, this isn’t quite ready for human consumption.
@Robert Evans Jr needs to do his job and post all the wines...
This was good, but not great in my mind. Herbs and tobacco on the mid palate. Still a tannic monster. Good structure, but should have decanted this. Hold on to this vintage.

Max's South Australia Shiraz 2017

"a medium-bodied Shiraz, displaying generosity of fruit, a rich balanced flavors with a lingering finish". Loved drinking this beautiful, full of bold Tate Penfold's Shiraz. — 2 days ago

Belle Glos

Clark & Telephone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Smells of plums and black cherries. Tate is a bit jammy with flavors of dark fruit like cherries and Black currant. Sour notes on the finish. Just a great wine by itself or with food. — 2 years ago
