Freycinet Vineyard

Tasmania Pinot Noir 2015

See many previous Delectable notes but not for this vintage. As stated previously one of Australia’s best Pinots A very aromatic nose of red and black cherry together with root vegetables particularly beetroot. Raspberry flavours - a sweetish palate with a savoury twist. An excellent Tasmanian Pinot Noir and a regular purchase. Also capable of extended cellaring - I recall having a 15 year old one once but it’s hard to resist right now. — 9 months ago

Hi Bob, what is the local price for this?

I think I paid approximately $70 for this on purchase and now around $80 plus. Very much worth it IMO.

Maison Ilan

Les Chaffots Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

There's been a lot of shade thrown on these wines and particularly, towards the wine maker...most of it probably deserved. As for some of the more recent low scores, there must be some bottle variation because I’m not gonna lie, this was a really strong showing. Popped and poured; consumed over two hours. Bruised strawberries, tart brambles, rhubarb, forest floor, and sandalwood. Tannins are well integrated…but still there. Acid is pretty high but perfect for a nice meal of whole, roasted chicken and root vegetables. The wine is otherwise quite balanced and if my bottle is representative, this still has a long life ahead of it and should drink quite well through 2030. My last of the Maison Ilan “Les Chaffots”. — 2 years ago

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Huge - in its early stages of evolution decanted 2 hours and singing. Cigar and hickory root on the nose. Lovely wine … if only I had more in the cellar to see it evolve further. — a year ago

Hickory root is hard to come by…

Leeuwin Estate

Art Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

stewed cherry and a very present coffee bean opening. animal hide. fruit and grip folding in on itself. an hour in, cocoa notes, herbal highlights, fermented tea, an after-whiff of caramel which stays in the nose even when the palate dissipates...grass-fed butter, cola, burdock root, medicine. an extraordinary and unexpected ride. — 2 years ago

[The Original Ungrafted] Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Immediately, black pepper on the nose. Cherry and raspberry follow. Good color, medium tannin, fruit forward and good for a Wednesday night dinner. — 8 months ago
