Now that’s brine, depth, and fruit. Incredibly refreshing,broad and saline.

Forest floor, violets, cherry, cola, fennel and a bit of heat on the finish (heat forgiven because of the grace elsewhere). Holding up nicely. Willamette Pinot postcard.. — 5 years ago
Wow! Our server recommend this as a companion to the lamb we ordered. Or maybe I'm still on an adrenaline rush having dipped into the Zambezi just a few feet away from the edge of Victoria Falls. Either way... I want more! — 2 years ago
New vintage of gris de gris!!! Corbieres still got it! Crisp and refreshing with juicy fruit. One of my favorite roses of all time for a good reason. A sunny postcard from the languedoc!! A must for picnics and sunny revelry and general enjoyment with or without food. A real winner. — 6 years ago
Great wine from Spain, dark fruit, blueberry, oak and vanilla on the nose. Palate is nicely layered with a nice long finish, perfumed dark fruit with oak, pipe tobacco, raisins and liquorice. Smooth mouthfeel with some tannins which will continue to soften. Hopefully the tannins will keep the raisins in check as that flavour may dominate as the wine ages further. Really rich and enjoyable. Not sure how to upload picture for new wine to delectable, answers on a postcard please 😃 — 9 months ago
2008 Sami-Odi 'Hoffmann Dallwitz' MCMXII Syrah
Sourced from 94 vines, planted between 1888 & 1912.
Harvested 14th March 2008.
Yields of 32 hectolitres per hectare.
388 Bottles filled.
Label: ‘Villie-Morgon’ postcard;
Image sourced Paris 2008. A special treat from my friends @chuck_gudas in conspiracy with @fraser_mckinley, a rare treat of an early Sami-Odi offering. We decanted this wine for several hours, and then re-visited 24 hours later, and the wine continued to evolve and improve. Explosive nose of freshly baked cherry pie. More bright red fruits on the palate with a brambley undertone, and soft silky tannins. Wonderful mouth feel with a long, lingering finish. Thank you Chuck and Fraser! — 3 years ago
