Angels' Share McLaren Vale Shiraz 2019

Ming L

Big full throttle Shiraz. The fruits are a bit overly extracted. Lack of the finesse of the Garden series, but pairs beautifully with bone-in cowboy rib eye streak.

Produttori del Barbaresco

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

At this stage Ferrando Carema White Label ‘16 blows away Produttori Barbaresco ‘16. Produttori is very ripe, and the alcohol is less in balance. The ‘16 normale does not really exhibit the freshness and elegance I associate with classic Barbaresco. Yes, the concentration and depth is impressive, and maybe at 10-20+ years the wine will achieve harmony. For now it exhibits more climate change character than the high tone energy desired. This is a Grey Market bottle purchased recently. I wonder if less than pristine storage and/or transit was an influence. I will compare notes with bottles purchased on release and via authorized Importer somewhere down the road. — 17 days ago

3/23 Perfect in every way. Wonderful red fruit with a lot of focus but mellow tannins and a long finish. 93 — 3 months ago

Bella's Garden Barossa Valley Shiraz 2008

2008. Pretty sure this will be the last wine we pull off the shelf tonight (🤷‍♂️). I think we drank them in the right order so that the current wine wasn’t overshadowed by the previous one. — 18 days ago

Love these, and they want at least this much time.

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

1985 vintage. Arguably, my fave wine but first time ever tasting this vintage. It didn’t suck. Decanted. Throwing appropriate sed. Light-medium body. Mixed elderly funk nose with the trademarked cocoa powder and blueberry early on after an hour decant. Bright cherry and ripe plum rolling after two hours decanted. More stuffing than expected. Really nice specimen. Definitely not getting any better but at the top of the bell curve for another 2-3 years. Window is closing. Run, don't walk. 5.11.23. — a month ago

Two Blondes Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Delectable Wine

The 2018 Red Wine Two Blondes is intense, blasting up with a seductive Merlot-centric bouquet of wild blueberries, lavender and sweet smoke before nuances of wet stone and baking spice emerge in the glass. This is a total darling, silky-smooth and elegant, with generous ripe red and blue fruits contrasted by saline-tinged acidity and the slightest tug of sour citrus. It finishes incredibly long and like a basket full of wild berries, staining the palate while also leaving it with an unbelievably fresh impression. There's a balanced structure here, but also enough fruit to nearly mask the tannins at this young stage. Total beauty. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2023) — 3 months ago

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Tasted this wine at the Château alongside the two other Latour wines. Absolutely approachable now after a two hour decant although the wine will reach its absolute peak in 10-30 years. Darker fruit compared with other Pauillac wine and the oak is definitely married with the wine rather than dominating it. I can’t wait for the release of its twin - the 2016!! — 2 months ago

Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

1997 vintage. Still dark as all get out. A quarter century has thinned out the massive body to medium body but the unified nose/flavors are full of chaparral/scrub, cassis, baking chocolate, gravelly dirt and blackberry reduction. Tasted approximately two hours after decanting. Miles to go before this one sleeps. In the zone now and likely so for another decade before any noticeable drop off in this old school Dunn experience. — 4 months ago
