Garcon Barossa Valley Grenache 2018

Previous bottle was only 10 days ago, fresh on delivery of a mixed dozen direct from Spinifex - and I gave it 92. This time giving it 94 - sour cherry more subdued and fleshy raspberry a bit more forward - much better balance and into delicious territory. What happened? Is it mood? Or was the previous bottle drunk too soon on delivery (is there such a thing as bottle shock on young wine?), or is it bottle variation? I think both were drunk with a similar amount of airtime. In any case, lovely Grenache. — 2 years ago

Vallée des Roches Barossa Valley Shiraz 2009

Very dark crimson - particularly for a 10 year old wine. Plum Chocolate and a tarry Creosote like note. A medium to full bodied palate of M plus intensity. I have the greatest of respect for Huon Hooke as a wine judge but I think his drinking window of 2011 to 2019 is too conservative. This has the power to go on for at least another 5 years and should show more complexity then. Estimating drinking windows is an inexact science. — 3 years ago

Tabor Vineyard Red Blend 2009

100% old vine Mataro from a single site in the Barossa Valley. Meaty and savoury with some plummy earthy notes. Same on the medium to full bodied palate with a hint of Liquorice. A good balance of fruit and savoury influences with the savoury winning out. Finishes with fine grained slightly tarry tannins. Love Wine like this. — 4 years ago
