McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

A very easy drinking Shiraz. A little peppery and jammy. Would order anytime with Italian. — 15 days ago

Dutcher Crossing

Winemakers' Cellar Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay 2018

First thing: much earthier than I anticipated. Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of ripe fruit: lemon 🍋, pineapple 🍍, and apricot 🍑. But before the fruit, there’s smoky minerality 💨 and dried thyme 🌱 followed by hazelnut. 🌰

Leviathan

California Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

So this wasn’t TOO heavy on the extraction and oakiness. Pretty nice blend of fresh and developing red and black fruit, relatively restrained oak notes (at least compared to the last Napa red I had). But personally I feel like Napa winemakers in general rely too much on over-toasted oak. Finish was shorter than I expected but overall not bad. Might be better with a little more bottle aging — 21 days ago

Pacific Rim Winemakers

The Great Pacific Northwest Columbia Valley Sweet Riesling

The perfect balance texture, aroma, light sweet and refreshing. From the first taste absolutely love it. No need to let it breathe. it is perfect.. Love the notes of honeysuckle and white flowers. I love the peach and pineapple flavors. It’s just pretty, and really leaves you wanting more. And they think the mineral soil‘s from Washington really makes this wine obsessive. Medium sweet — a month ago

John Duval Wines

Plexus Shiraz Blend 2015

Medium to full crimson in colour. I love GSM - or as this wine is SGM with Shiraz predominant. Spicy Tarry red berry aromas. All the varieties blend well here but overall it is very Barossa. John Duval, the winemaker, was once Penfolds Chief Winemaker from 1986 to 2002. There have only been 4 Penfolds Grange winemakers - Max Schubert (creator in 1951), Don Ditter, John Duval and now Peter Gago the current Chief Winemaker since 2002. A wine that goes well with food or has the substance to be equally well on its own. — a day ago

I tasted the Entity bottling, and it was very good as well. Would love to try this GSM blend.

Have not had a lot of experience with Duval wines under his own label but he would have excellent connections with the growers from his days with Penfolds.
