As per previous notes. Dense crimson in colour. Cedar, blackberry and geranium. To borrow HH’s phrase “effortless style”. Demonstrates why Coonawarra’s red dirt is marvellous for Cabernet. 96% Cabernet 4% Petit Verdot. The Tally is the top Cuvée from Balnaves. Rich, medium to full bodied. — 6 days ago
Previous notes in April 2020 apply. Ripe blackberry notes and lashings of oak. Medium to full bodied - very satisfying. Has a balance that prevents it being over the top - medium tannins at the finish. Good QPR at $32 AUD. Silver medal. 2012 was a very good vintage in SA. — 19 days ago
Glamour photo shoot for this amazing hazy IPA (and for @Ron R , our Delectable IPA ambassador). First time I had this Hazy Mosaic was in the brewery’s hometown of San Diego, and I instantly fell in love. Very thankful I can acquire it locally here in Houston. Juicy, fruity, voluptuous, floral, smooth. — 12 days ago
