Next soldier. I love celebrating our troops on Memorial Day. — 2 years ago
This Bordeaux style blend is not quite as big a wine as prior vintages, but has brighter acidity and nice mineral tannins. The dominant flavors are Bing cherry and blueberry, with a thick finish. It was a great complement to cumin seared steak salad. — 3 years ago
Love this blend! Dark but not too oaky — 4 years ago
Great story, great whisky. Heavy vanilla with toffee and caramel. — a year ago
Another stunning wine! Probably tied for WOTN. Just an absolutely fantastic GC, and a lesser known producer, but not to be taken lightly. For under $100 you are getting cream of the crop, and something that even at 6 years of age will soldier on and continue to develop for at least the next 10 years. Vibrant and aromatic - crushed clove, fresh pansies, rhubarb, a faint touch of brett to bring the terrior together. Beautiful ruby color, no loss of youth in flavour either - raspberry reduction, nutmeg, dried cranberries, cedar, and a finesse only known to GC Burgundy.
Another special treat to open. Thank you @Kyle Groombridge ! — 3 years ago
Nice tannic structure. Bit of a sprinter. Nose fell off sharply after opening. Acidity paired nicely with soldier beans in a strongly flavored sauce. Less pleasant after but still decent. $22. — 4 years ago
Medium to Deep Ruby. Lovely fragrance of berry and chocolate - obviously Old Vine South Australian (in this case McLaren Vale) Shiraz. From the cooler 2004 vintage and all the better for it. Mouth filling palate with great length. Drinking at its peak but will soldier on for a while yet. — 4 years ago
