Limestone Coast, South Australia

Yalumba

The Menzies Coonawara Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

Nose has crushed mint, ripe cherries, ripe blackberries, moist cedar, old leather, cherry-infused tobacco and candle wax trailing away.

Palate has ripe blackberries, dried Bing cherries, slight cocoa powder, dried plum, faint spice cake with fading tannins.

2H decant at the time of notes, I think this wants more air to continue developing. A purchase from many, many years past when we were hot on all things Australia. Hidden away for ~20Y in our off-site storage, these bottles recently arrived at the home cellar. I'm not disappointed by the showing tonight, more intrigued about what the next few bottles will bring...

Paired with Allen Bros cover rib (rib cap) and smashed fingerling potatoes; a meal generally dreamed about, realized tonight.

@Paul T- Huntington Beach Chances are good you have some counterfeit stuff, Yellow Tail was only started in 2000, and imported to the US beginning in 2011. Your '95's might have been early experimental juice.

Penfolds

Bin 28 Kalimna South Australia Shiraz 2018

A bit tight upfront but definitely opened up as time went on. Concentrated dark blue fruit encapsulated by warm vanilla oak. Plenty of acidity and backbone to be tried again in maybe five plus years. — 7 days ago

Home Hill

Kelly's Reserve Tasmania Pinot Noir 2014

Aromatic notes of rose and violet. Great depth of delicious flavour on the medium bodied palate. Red fruits - savoury and rich. See previous note for the 2014 - always excellent but 8 years of cellaring has enhanced this wine. To have won the Jimmy Watson Trophy for the Best One Year Old Dry Red at Royal Melbourne and still starring now at 8 years of age shows this is a wine for all seasons and all years. Should be a regular purchase. A Winner. — 2 days ago

Clarendon Hills

Piggott Range Vineyard Syrah 2005

Popped and poured; no formal notes. Best with air, this is still a baby. Blueberry pie, purple flowers, rotundone, some black pepper, cocoa, coffee and bacon fat. Super dry with stiff tannin still. Lovely acid. Finish is long…like whoa. Drink now with patience or before 2035, no cap. — 2 days ago

Penfolds

Bin 2 South Australia Shiraz Mourvedre 2012

See 2 previous notes on Delectable. Much the same now. Very plummy on nose and palate. Meaty notes on the nose. Plum and raspberry on the palate. An excellent blend for Penfolds from their vast resources. Amazing the influence of the Mourvèdre for only being 11%. Shiraz is 89%. Paid $30 per bottle for this in 2016. Cheap for a Penfolds red. — 7 days ago
