Mon Père Tasmania Shiraz 2010

Comparing 2 cool climate Syrahs - this is the 2nd one from Tasmania. Black pepper with a touch of asparagus (SO2) which blew off. After a few hours delightful florals of gardenia and pansy. Intriguing to say the least. On the medium plus palate fruit and spice driven - more rich than expected from a Tasmanian Syrah. Really delicious with ripe fleshy plum melded with the spicy pepper. Finishing with medium minus tannins. A classy cool climate Syrah a few points above the Salo from NZ. This Mon Pere won the 50th Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy at Royal Melbourne and hard to get from this boutique producer. I could only get 2 bottles and this was the last one. Sold out in a day after winning the Trophy. Total production of 250 cases. Wish I had a few more left. Made by Nick Glaetzer whose family built their reputation in the Barossa like Amon Ra. — 8 days ago

Could not agree more with your comment Bob “how you like to enjoy your wine.” For me, I prefer wines in their youth. Still on their upswing. More fruit and tannin. Don’t get me wrong tho, some wines with cellar age can be wonderful.


Great comments!!

La Boutanche Trollinger Rosé 2019

Andi Knauss is the exploring cricket in the La Boutanche project. Each of the winemakers for this label get his/her own cartoon animal.

His Trollinger looks like a rose’, but it’s a light red that should be fully chilled. Crimson bright strawberries and raspberries and cherry jolly rancher.

The perfect easy liter for when you want red but your thirsty.

Vice Versa

Le Petit Vice Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Short Rib wine. 👍🏼
Winery notes,

Unique circumstances helped create the monumentally impressive 2013 Le Petit Vice. Proprietor Patrice Breton worked with Paul Hobbs and Mike Smith in the beginning, and finished the wine with the help of Philippe Melka, and Shawn Johnson… Four of Napa Valley’s most accomplished winemakers.

Aged for 22 months in Taransaud and Marques French oak barrels,

2-3 minute sear on each side at 500-550. Perfect 👌

Prime cut makes a difference. Not a chew fest like supermarket meat.

I have never heard of Taransaud or Marques French barrels but if I go after a master of wine probably should know all the barrels 🤔 any which way sounds like it was a good wine 🍷


Preta Vinho Regional Alentejano Red Blend

2018 vintage. White Alentejo blend (Roupeiro, Rabo de Ovelha, Antao Vaz, Tamarez, Alicante Branco and Arinto) by winemakers António Maçanita and Sandra Sarria. Old vines, whole bunch fermentation, no malolactic. Bright yellow. Spicy and floral with power and some complexity. Authentic and very good value. — a month ago

Rêveur Pinot Noir 2015

Red fruits with noticeable stalks from whole bunch fermentation - great balance and medium bodied with fluid juicy textures - last of 3. This is showing better than the previous 2 bottles. I sometimes get overly influenced by HHs reviews He gave this only 84 points and it is 10 points better than that. — a month ago

This stuff is gold! Basically sat in the winemakers living room as they opened any bottle they could find, the passion and care that goes into this wine, no surprise they are getting some much due attention for some outstanding Mosel Rieslings — a month ago

Quantum Leap

Kaley's Rescue Red 2014

Very nice Paso Robles sourced red blend. Pleasant nose, complex on palate with just enough tannins to be bold but not overwhelming. Bonus is that portions of sales go to a pet rescue I. Honor of the winemakers former pet Kaley for whom the wine is named. — a month ago
