Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Red and dark plums, currants, and mulberry again, this seems just a little less ripe with better acid, tannins are less bitter as well, medium-long, lingering finish, this also needs aging (5+ years at least), I marginally prefer this to the 2020 since it’s more fresh and lively on the palate, lovely acid balance!! — 3 days ago

Margaret River Chardonnay 2020

Really good. Taut, minerally, sea breeze. No malolactic. Tastes like it sits somewhere between Chablis and the Côte de Beaune. — a month ago

Exmoor Margaret River Chardonnay 2018

Andrew Holod

Pale clear yellow/gold Quite lemony on the nose. Good density and persistence on the palate. Dry and carrying it's barrel ferment with wild yeast well. This over delivers for price to quality. — a year ago

DJL Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

This wine is a steal. Great aroma— like a cab should have. Fruit forward but well balanced. Long delicious cab finish. I visited the winery a few years ago while birdwatching in Australia. Beautiful vineyard and chateau . Got this wine on last bottle site. Look for it at under $20. Thanks Rob for tip about last bottle. I have to visit some day!! — 3 years ago

Stevens Road Margaret River Chardonnay 2015

Another modern style Chardonnay like the Nanny Goat from Otago had a few days ago. The 2nd of 2 premium Chardonnays from Xanadu - the other being the Reserve. Glenn Goodall the winemaker says the main difference between the 2 is that the Stevens Road has an “oyster shell “ character which I get. Also a saline, mineral note. The next night some delicious white peach notes. Oak is perfectly balanced (25% new Barriques). Could cellar for another 5 years if so desired. — 8 months ago

St. Xanadu Wine Cellars

California Red Blend 2013

Wonderful! Just enough tanins to be interesting, but not out of the way crazy in your face.

Great as a day drinker or as a accompaniment to pizza or something with grease.

Will be getting a number 3 soon!
