Rougarou McCormick Ranch Vineyard Carignan 2019

Bright cloudy scarlet in the glass, this vintage is less funky than the 2018 - a bit cleaner overall. Tart red fruits (cherries, pomegranate) with ripping acid, and light dusty tannins. Very enjoyable while it lasts. — 2 days ago

Clonal Selection Elgin Syrah 2016


Medium deep ruby color. Firey, flinty and Smokey on the nose. On the palate there’s a delicate, sweet attack followed by a medium(+) body and secondary flavors of eucalyptus, bay leaf and black fruit. Delicious. #elgin #syrah #southafrica — 2 days ago

Mabalel Overberg Pinot Noir 2018

Bramble nose, mineral and new world pinot spiceyness on the palatte. Moderate length with a touch too much alcohol at the end. Not bad — 5 days ago


Mary Delany Collection Pinot Noir 2017

Medium Ruby with aromas of red berry fruit and herb spice. On the palate flavors of cherry and tart raspberry with pleasant earthy herb notes, wrapped in vivid acidity and nice mouthfeel. Fine grainy tannins, good balance, long finish ending with full fruit character. Nice. Tasting Sample. — 4 days ago

Brand's Laira

Barrelman Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Part of the 40 wine blind tasting at the Downs Club and in my Top 5. Highly aromatic red and blue fruits. Outstanding in a 2nd tasting over the weekend. A wonderful young Cabernet from a good vintage in Coonawarra. I gave it 95 points on Thursday night and stuck with that rating from the half empty bottle yesterday. When we checked the Landed Unit cost of only $17 this will become the lesser priced Club Red yet worthy of the Premium Red. I can’t remember enjoying a young Cabernet as much as this. — 23 days ago

Bowen Estate

Estate Grown Coonawarra Shiraz 2016

Rich, flavorful Cab with fantastic bold tannins well integrated with the dark red fruit of cranberry, blueberry, currant. Layers of complexity readily opened up and a grippy finish. We picked it up at cellar doors when we were traveling across SE SA a few years back and visited Coonawarra. Had to drink it today to celebrate their most severe but shortest 3 day lock down in this pandemic history. — 7 days ago

Temecula Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Special Estate Reserve, This wine opens with a velvet cloak of leather, oak, bay and tea leaves. There is the fruit of super ripe plums and figs. The structure is still intact with firm tannins. The finish lasts long with some sweet and sour cherries. All the things one expects from a well aged wine. — 10 days ago
