Robertson Winery

Winemakers Selection Pinotage 2015

Deep red current color, medium body, dry wine. Faint strawberries & red fruit on the nose. Strawberry spritzer w/ a hint on acid on the fore palate, long velvety, smooth mouth drying finish with cherry jam. No Smokiness in this bottle. (Meditrina Cafe, Valparaiso IN. Falafel appetizer, Beef shawarma- Tim & Paprika Chicken in tomato cream sauce- Paula.) wonderful meal. — 22 days ago

Municipal Winemakers

The Kook Old Vine Cucamonga Valley Zinfandel

Green peppers and dusty jam on the nose. Big jammy taste up front followed by dry finish of herbs. No hint of heat is noticeable with 14.5% alcohol. Love Muni wines — a month ago

Foradori

Dolomiti Teroldego 2015

Elisabetta Foradori is on a very short list of natural winemakers who have a history of what I’d call dedicated unrecklessness. It isn’t enough to make wine without anything added or taken away. The best natural winemakers make calculated decisions. And she does with her beloved Teraldego- what a grape!

It’s elegant like Pinot but meatier. Pillow plush. There are dark berries, nothing eccentric. Simply restrained, deliberate, conscious, winemaking.

Sirromet

Vino Superior for the Tuscan Terrace Rosé Blend

At the Toowoomba Wine Show Judges Dinner and brought by one of the winemakers at Sirromet. No detailed notes - too many wines; not enough time. A very acceptable Rose blend. — 18 days ago

Donkey & Goat

The Gallivanter California Red Blend 2017

Ok. Look. I get it. This is not a wine for everyone. But for a real wine that reflects a winemakers vision of non-interventionist winemaking, this is it. On the nose, very aromatic floral notes, bright red fruit. In the mouth, light high-toned red fruit, some strong acidity... backend of some dill pickles (in a good way). Medium-long finish. My kinda wine. Wouldn’t bring it to someone that likes oaky Cabs.

Day 2 - much richer and darker, more like a 91. Really a well made wine.

Enderle & Moll

Baden Pinot Noir 2016

Needs a 15 minute decant. A bit simple on open. Then a hint of bitterness rounds out the delicious soft plummy fruit. Some spice. Great Tuesday night wine. It has the joyous fruit you want but good balance and some geekiness.

Some lilac liquor as this opens.

Ana amazing bottle of wine for the price

Ok. Maybe it needs 45 minutes. I can’t decide if this is a truly great wine that is a tad flawed or a unique wine that is just different t. Either way to even be having this conversation about $20ish wine is crazy. These guys are masterful winemakers.
