QPR on point with the Shadowfax line up.
Flagship that is approachable and affordable. — 7 hours ago
I'm not a fan of rosè, but this flagship(?) is excellent. Fresh and pleasantly dry: "warm", a red fruit, a peach, a citrus finish. From this producer: Hennessy is very good, Möet not necessarily. And "Whispering Angel" whispers to my ears when the sun is killing me. :) — 3 months ago
The winery’s estate cab is one of my favorites, yet I didn’t really know what to expect out of this flagship bottling as 2003 is a week vintage for Napa.
Nose of blueberry, cassis, light raspberry, dark roasted coffee beans, incense, thyme, Chinese herbs, old leather, and rusted iron. The palate, while smooth, is very delicate and at times appears to be chewy, with layers of flavors that hit you like gentle waves. Dusty tannins.
This is all about complexity and nuances. Did not disappoint. — 13 days ago
This flagship Reserva from the CVNE stable is so young it almost has the character of a youthful Barbaresco that needs at least another five years in bottle. Incredibly fierce acidity and a tannic, bone-dry profile make it a tough wine to drink at the moment. The benefit to this, of course, is ageing potential - this should be a wine that sees its 20th birthday in fine form, and likely live for some years after that. There is a well of very ripe, rich red fruit beneath the structure that will reveal itself in time, and a terrifically long finish. 93 points for now, but potential for 95+ in 5/10 years’ time. — a month ago
A joint venture of Jorge Ordonez, Bodegas Borsao and Chris Ringland, located in the town of Bulbuente (Zaragoza) Spain. Alto Moncayo is the flagship of the winery. A single-grape variety of Garnacha, from vines between 40 and 70 years old, aged in new barrels for 20 months. Bold aromas of fruit and spice. On the palate black fruit flavors, rich and full-bodied, with complex spice. Fine tannins, savory, good structure ending with a smoky character. Very nice! — 2 months ago
First time with the flagship wine after drinking their $25 Cabernet for many years (at least 8 or more). Punches above it’s weight class at $55. I’m disappointed I’ve waited this long. Not overly tannic and sensibly balanced. Will go back for more! — 21 days ago
Subtle plums in a blackberry patch with refined St Emilion Elegance. Though it takesa back seat to the flagship wine that's ok. Particularly if you've had fun in the backseat in the past. Wine is in a great window to enjoy with about 45 minute decant — a month ago
Dense Ruby in colour. Even after 18 years the oak presence is like the aromas of newly sawn wood. Ripe plums with a pruney note. On the palate rich and full bodied with fluid smooth tannins finishing dry. Obviously the product of very old Shiraz vines in the Barossa sourced from growers who the original Peter Lehmann had a marvellous bond with for decades. This is Peter Lehmann’s flagship red from the cool 2002 vintage resulting in a long hang time and great flavours. A Barossa Icon. — 2 months ago
