Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Beautiful potential wishing I would have let I lay for another few years. Tannins are beginning to soften but still lending a good back bone. Black raspberry and dark cherry in the mouth under nose of cedar and vanilla. — a day ago

San Giusto a Rentennano

Percarlo Toscana Sangiovese

One of eight wines in a 2007 Tuscan tasting, held about a week ago. This was the only one in the group that showed the heat of the vintage in its slight alcoholic warmth. However, it also sported a nicely rounded, almost creamy palate presence and a touch of cedar in the finish. I’m curious where this one might go with another few years in the cellar. — 4 days ago

A Los Viñateros Bravos Pais Blanco 2017

Pungently floral, ripe peaches, smoke, vegetal note like pea tendrils or watercress maybe. Really distinctive — 11 days ago

Wendouree Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

My wife Barb holding the 1997 Wendouree Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine was a gift from me to my brother Mike on his 70th Birthday a couple of years ago and yesterday at lunch at his place he decided to open it. The Wine itself had trademark aromas of menthol and eucalyptus. On the palate a powerful mid to full bodied palate with great savoury length and medium persistent tannins. Lacking a little berry fruit to be ultra critical. — 10 days ago

@TheSkip Yes the Skip. Great view from the Toowoomba Range to the East into the Lockyer Valley. You can see a feature known as Table Top which is an old volcanic plug. Great spot for Lunch.
