Matthew Woodlands Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

So much going on.. dark cherry almost herbal on the nose, dark fruits, clove, medium acidity, medium low alcohol .. generous toasty oak, cigar/ tobacco... Evolves and almost intensifies with time in the glass. Love it — 19 days ago


'Margaret' Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Enticing mature Cabernet smell of Plum Mocha and black currant - Barb said dusty chest of drawers. and a delicious palate. Excellent Margaret River Cabernet particularly for Woodlands’ 2nd string Cuvée. From a good vintage in 2010 with many years to go. Only 2 bottles left from an original dozen. — 2 months ago

Domaine les Grands Bois

Marc Rasteau Grenache Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Dark and dense nose with a spit of woodlands and bacon fat. Medium/medium-heavy body. A bit syrupy on a smooth ending. Solid value. May pick up 3-6 more bottles and cellar for those now infrequent grilled steak/pork chop nights. — 4 months ago

Brook Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Delectable - this is actually the new Woodlands Brook Vineyard Chardonnay - not offered in your database. Citrus, white peach and nougat with leesy notes. A creamy leesy texture on the palate - oak present but in the background. Good palate definition with Medium intensity. This is Woodlands 2nd best Chardonnay to the premium Cuvée, Chloe,and a relatively new Cuvée for the winery and an excellent wine IMO. More restrained than many Margaret River Chardonnays. — 6 months ago

Clementine Wilyabrup Valley 2017

An unexpectedly delicious Bordeaux blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, and 6% Cabernet Franc. Oak grazed, dark-berry nose with hints of earth and a herbs. The oak's definitely more prominent on the palate, offering vanillin creaminess which seemingly melts into the concentrated yet juicy fruit profile. Medium to full bodied with chalky tannins and lively acidity. Finishes long with an interesting marmalade-like note. Not a wine I'd typically like, but I really appreciate how there's not an ounce of jamminess in the wine, nor the heavy pyrazines I associate with the Cabernet's of Margaret River.

NB: I was really pleased with the condition of that wines last night. With this session, that's 4 out of 6 bottles from the new wine shop/bar in town with little-to-no heat stroke issues - that's a huge win in my books! Kudos, RL.

Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese Riesling 2007

Lyle Fass

Have not had in 5 years. Young as ever. Eternal. Smells like a 17 or 16. Super slate, Granny Smith apple flesh, woodlands, pine, apple skins, so lean and classic. The slate aromatic expression is wonderful. Awesome texture like icing on a cake and superb balance and freshness. What a finish. The unsung Prüm. Really compelling wine. Best showing ever. Such a huge core of fruit and mineral and the finish! This will last 25+ more year and this is my last bottle. What a great bottle. This is last of 4. I tasted this wine with Bert Selbach at the estate and was floored. Now the estate is sold and doesn’t exist anymore and Bert is retired. He was a great winemaker and if you ever find any of his stuff buy it. His Himmelreich and Domprobst stuff is top class and with age they transform . — a month ago

Château La Grange

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015 vintage. Big. Full. Needs time. Lots of time. If drinking now, give it at least a two hour decant pre-consumption. Medium bodied with plenty of grip. Plenty of cherries, oak, plum with a splash of woodlands air and an infinitesimal schwing of Hawaiian Punch. Maan, these La Granges generally need two decades to resolve/settle down/marry/divorce. — 3 months ago

Tenuta Caparzo

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

From 375ml.
N: Chocolate covered morello cherries. Deep nose, sappy pine forest, damp. A hint of clove. Balsam.
P: That’s one fully engaging wine, Deep and bright, a world of browns. Really refreshing, and unctuous, woodlands, prunes, cinnamon. It goes on.
