Stagecoach Vineyard Synchrony Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon/Franc blend from the great 2012 vintage.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco, herbs and coffee.

This 10 year old Single Vineyard is extracted and rich, yet elegant.

This fabulous wine is drinking wonderfully right now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. Aged for 22 months in (70% new) French Oak barrels. A tiny production of only 5 barrels.

94 points.

Thomas Brothers' Pinot Noir 2018

Dull ruby. Complex red fruit and oak spice on the nose does not hint at the depths of serious savoury bite and structure on the palate. Intense, tightly packed sour dark cherry, smoky mineral notes. Real energy and power. Reminds me of Rippon. The tannins are present but at one with the savoury oak. This is serious stuff, and would only improve from here. Estate bottling is a great wine but this is up there with the best I have had from NZ (and I’ve had a bit!) Fill your boots!! — 12 days ago

Pikes Wines

Hills & Valleys Clare Valley Riesling 2018

Estate situated in the quaint Polish Hill sub region of South Australia’s Clare Valley. Brothers Andrew & Neil Pike established Pikes in 1984 and continue to manage today. Pale lemon with pronounced aromas of citrus & stone fruits adding floral notes. On the palate flavors of lemon/lime, peach & pineapple with honey and toasty biscuit notes. Medium+ finish ending with wet stone character. Very Good, some bottle age will benefit. — 3 years ago

Brothers Miller

California Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

My first Cabernet that I am rating. Deep ruby color and deep scents of sweet floral, tobacco and pepper. Taste is floral and raspberry, tart cherry, and just a hint of tannins. It’s like a bold black coffee compared to the light roast (Pinot Noir) I normally drink. I would buy and drink again! — 11 hours ago

Rippon Vineyard

Jeunesse Young Vine Lake Wanaka Pinot Noir 2017

Very fresh. Typical Rippon plumb and black cherry notes but much more angular and youthful than the big brothers. All the structure without much of the fruit. — 4 years ago
