Moss Wood Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

See previous notes on July 2018 and October 2021. This is maturity nicely. Keith Mugford, the owner and winemaker said on release “It will take at least 10 years to develop some bottle age characters and will probably reach its peak somewhere around 20 years old. However it should continue to be drinkable up to 30 years old, at least and especially for those bottles under screw cap.” (Which this was). Showing cassis, mulberry, cedar and a little tobacco. Mouth filling and delicious. Rich and sweet - could be described as a Shiraz lover’s Cabernet. Great persistence - smooth and slippery tannins. A very good vintage in Margaret River. I have 3 left - next one in late 2026 or 2027 when 20 years old. I also have a Magnum which should not be touched until at least 25 years of age. — 3 days ago

Remember the roasted marshmallow wine I brought to Boise? Same vineyard and grape.

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Slightly deeper ruby garnet , narrower rim . Deeper and younger , touch of wood smoke then quite ripe black fruits , rounder with better definition on the nose than the 1994 . More degraded cassis and grafite noticeable than the wine before, tobacco , touch of seashell , marine influence comes though . On the palate the fruit fills out better than the 1994, quite dark and serious , grafite , tobacco and cedar , however the tannin is less rustic and better integrated . Nice balancing acidity. This has quite good length and is showing well now though could age a little longer. Probably is best drunk over the next few years — 4 months ago

Blanc du Puits Sec Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Gris Blend 2022

Ming L

A blend of 85/15 Pinot Gris/Gewürztraminer, all from estate vineyard Les Puits Sec (The Dry well). The aromatic nose shows more Gewürztraminer with lovely notes of lychee, underripe guava, pear, and subtle ginger spice. More stone fruits and minerals on the taste. Fresh acidity rounded out by hint of sweetness on the lingering finish.
Delicious! And pretty label as well.
