The Black Pig Reserve McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017

Deep dark Ruby in colour - almost black. Ripe dark plum flesh and skins on nose and palate - sweet fruit and chocolate. A mouthful of flavour if not a bit simple. McLaren Vale does these big rich Shirazes well. A crowd pleaser with excellent QPR - a gift from my brother in law. — 21 days ago

Scarecrow

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Shay A
9.6

I’ve been fortunate to have tried a few vintages of Scarecrow, but have never had the opportunity to sit down and simply enjoy a bottle from start to finish. I acquired this 2012 with that exact intention (and also to share with my father-in-law, who is the reason I have a passion for wine).

A hallmark for Scarecrow (in my opinion) is a weightless gravitas. How Celia can craft a Cabernet that is consistently so elegant and supremely balanced is beyond me. 2012, being an excellent Napa vintage, and entering its 10yr age had me thinking this would be pop and pour…wrong! Lots of youthful exuberance here. More red/black than purple in the glass. Slightly high toned dark-berry fruits, currant, floral notes (violets) and graphite. The entry and mid-palate again have this gorgeous weight…added notes of dark cocoa and espresso, but mostly a balanced core of dark fruits. The finish sports quite a grip (even after two hours), but it sure was fun to still taste the wine almost 30 seconds later! Decant 2hrs if opening now, or hold for another 5-7yrs to enjoy this type of profile.

I bought the new vintage for the wine list but because it’s allocated , I haven’t even tasted it!
I get 3 bottles a year …. Sometimes 6 if I beg the family

@Joshua Fisher : Great bottle to have on a list! Lucky you if you can get 6. I’ve only been on the list a few years, but share my allocation with someone…definitely a pricey acquisition.

@James Cahill : My pleasure. Certainly a spectacular bottle to enjoy now, while only getting better!

Encinillas

Megacero Premium Blend 2019

A wine from Chihuahua Mexico with a good ol’ man from Chihuahua Mexico, my father in law. One of the most consistent Mexican wines, in my humble opinion, and one of the most consistent men I’ve ever met. Cheers. — a month ago

Don Miguel Gascón

Reserva Mendoza Malbec 2010

2010. Pulled from the cellar for my sister-in-law that said she really likes Malbec… This wine pleased her and the rest of us. One of the better inexpensive Malbec that I’ve had. Can’t tell if it is the extra age (oldest Delectable review that I could find was 2016), but the tasty fruit was not overpowering at all. — 2 months ago

2018. A nice bottle gifted by my sister-in-law. Lighter body than I expected, with savory red fruit flavors that paired well with grilled pork and lamb. — a month ago

Dragon's Tooth Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Fine red blend to celebrate my daughters finishing her 2nd year law school. Lush red fruit, mid pallet aftertaste with a wonderful lingering flavor profile that includes minerality and tobacco. This 1.5L is a treat🍷 — 2 months ago
