Moppa Hill Block 6 Shiraz 2012

Big and inky Barossa heaps of fruit and oak but not overpowering like some from the region. Had 2012 in 2021 but would not lose anything with another 5-10 years careful cellaring. — 2 days ago

Hunnicutt

Brinkman Block Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

Fantastic GIII fruit. Deep rich character. Blackberry, leather, a little spice. Nice long balanced finish. Decanted for 2 hours. Needs more than that. Structure leads me to believe this is a 25+ year wine. — 9 days ago

Chopping Block Paso Robles Syrah Blend 2017

9.3

Another one of my bottles opened for a massive Paso theme. After having the 2016 last year during a virtual tasting with Connor of Fulldraw, I think this 2017 has more upfront appeal whereas the 2016 has a touch more longevity.

I double decanted this for an hour, then put it in a decanter at my destination where I followed it for the next 4hrs. The profile didn’t really change all that much after the first 1-2hrs. This is high octane without being overblown and flabby. Half Syrah, with the remaining split between Grenache and Mourvèdre. Gorgeous royal purple in the glass. Aromatically I didn’t pick up a lot of smoked meat/savory Syrah notes, but mostly a lot of dark chocolate dipped black cherries, dark floral potpourri and fleshy fruits...as if it were mostly Grenache. The palate was the same...high toned ripe fruit with nice lift and acidity, and an airy jammy character I find in high quality Paso wines.

I saved the last third of this and opened again the next day and there was zero change. Best over the next 3-5yrs for this type of profile.
