Falling Rain

Rain Baw Baw Shire Pinot Noir Blend 2019

Incredible as always. I enjoy this style of wine in between light red and rich rosé. Rain is a subtle story. Forest berries compote, white pepper, pomegranate, underbrush and red flowers. Almost perfectly balanced, juicy and delicious. I would drink this wine every day. Casually.

Tasted as part of Mixed Bag Vol. 1.

Stunning mineral nose with amazing slate aromas, wet rocks and depth. Ripe peach and apricot. Lifting, refined and elegant. Also a wonderful earthy after the rain aroma. Crushed rock dust as well. Such a mesmerizing nose. The minerality is through the roof! It’s so bright and broad and unique. What an amazing site! Palate is brilliant. Super mineral and extremely concentrated with uncommon depth and such razor sharp acidity. Wow the minerality is profound here. It’s overwhelming and crashes on your palate like waves on rocks at high tide. Amazing layered and refined finish. Linear and with just amazing focus. Love the concentration and focus here as usually wines this concentrated can lose focus. Not here! The nose smells like pulverized rock dust now. This is as classy as a 1er cru white burgundy from an elite producer. Extremely finesse driven and finesses all that concentration and minerality with ease. Brilliant wine from perhaps Stefan’s best site. — a month ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

2003 vintage. To infinity and beyond. Throwing a vintage portesque amount of sed. In the nose, post-rain earth, dried shrooms, infinitesimal hint of milk chocolate. Light-medium bod. Maan…did that finish, Cranberries-style, linger. Do you have to do you have to bring that much cedar and chocolate-covered espresso bean to the show? At the top of the bell curve and would seem to effortlessly have another decade double-parked there. Imho, consistently shows the best of the 1st growths with the least.

Chasing Rain

Red Mountain Merlot 2018

An unusual partnership between oak/vanilla (sweet) and bitterness >in a good way. Interesting wine! 85% Merlot 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 19 months in American and French oak. There is an oak/ vanilla sweetness with great fruity berries on the front & midpalate which transitions to a cocoa powder, black licorice, anise bitterness to a long finish. Very smooth, Medium+ bodied. Fun to decipher! My Costco..$10! We went through gas line 1st...loving this! — a month ago

Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2006

Gorgeous floral bouquet features red roses, lilac, lavender and cherry blossoms above ripe red and black cherry, ripe raspberry, grilled watermelon and morels. Tart cherry palate dials into the silky groove suddenly, hinting at rose water, but resembling raspberries in a forest rain. Lightest cinnamon bark adds warmth, violet and hibiscus bites emerge, and the whole flaunts a long and sensuous length of shimmer that mystifies.

Been two years. Nose is minty, forestry, dusty wood shavings, some bing cherry and some nice tar, cigar and fresh tree bark after a nice spring rain. Another one of this wines that smells like a scene in nature. Compelling nose. Elegant and juicy but with formidable tannins. This needs air. It will get it. Totally closed initially. But great length. Really great length. Mid palate opens up quickly after initially being closed. Deep, very serious wine. Amazing power, depth and concentration. This needs 5 years but very compelling. My score is too low most likely. — 2 months ago
