The Steading Red Rhone Blend 2014

It is a hot sticky night here in the Chicago area and I have opened the 2014 Torbreck "The Steading" Barossa Valley Rhone Blend. 77% Grenache, 15% Mataro and 8% Shiraz.

The nose reveals black cherry, raspberry, anise, cinnamon, spice, herbs, violet and smokey oak.

The palate is very savory, a little heavy on the oak, strawberry, black cherry, black pepper, licorice, violets and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied, velvety with medium acidity and medium + gripping tannins that lead to a long smokey peppery finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

예쁜 자주빛/보라빛깔을 띄는 남호주 바로사 밸리의 100% 시라즈. 흔들면 처음에는 달콤한 향기로 유혹을 하고 그 뒤에는 스모키한 오크통의 향기도 뒤따라 매력을 나타낸다. 진한 바디감과 길게 이어지는 여운은 마치 덤프트럭처럼 묵직하게 나에게 달려드는 느낌. 산미는 높지 않고 타닌이 약간 세기는 하지만 전반적으로 부드럽게 넘어가서 기분이 좋다. 가장 마지막에 입안에서 맴도는 복숭아와 포도맛에 이끌려 한모금씩 더 마시다 보면 어느새 나의 글래스는 비워져 있고 새로운 한잔을 따라야 한다. 자칫 첫잔의 진한맛에 질릴수도 있지만 두번째 잔을 마실때쯤엔 한층 부드러운 맛으로 편안하게 즐길수 있다. 바디감의 끝판왕 — 2 days ago

Eight Songs Shiraz 2012

Выпито в Лофте в день рождения хозяина Сергея Носова.Более мягкого и нежного шираза я не пил в своей жизни. Эти 8 songs 2012 находятся на пике своей зрелости и были хороши даже без декантирования. Лучший so far Шираз моей жизни. — 5 days ago

Woodcutter's Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Solid Shiraz from Torbeck. Some spice, dark fruit and slightly earthy a bit like a Chateauneuf du Pape. Easy drinking and good value for money. It’s great that the Aussie producers have a full spectrum of the same varietals for people to enjoy. Torbeck, Two Hands, Penfolds and Glaetzer all have great options at multiple price points. — 7 days ago

Bishop Barossa Valley Shiraz

소믈리에의 추천을 받아 주문한 호주 남부 Barossa Valley 의 100% Shiraz 와인. 첫 향은 코를 찌르는 후추향. 그리고 약간 달콤한 베리향. 첫모금은 피노누아 처럼 달콤한가? 싶더니 금세 묵직한 바디감과 탄닌감이 느껴진다. 두번째 잔은 역시나 훨씬 부드럽다. 여운이 꽤나 길고 무척 맛있다고 느낀 와인이다. zalto 잔에 마셔서 더 그런가...🙄 — 2 days ago

Romanee Tuff by Tommy Ruff Syrah

This was an unusual but surprising wine. The best description I can give it is very fresh. Almost like barely ripe tomatoes crushed with the leaves. It really is the perfect summer wine for red wine drinkers who find rose generally to sweet or lacking depth. This wine is complex and interesting but also light and best served slightly chilled. Making it perfect for a summer poolside drink. — 12 days ago

Two Hands

Bella's Garden Shiraz 2015

Another trip to Bella’s Garden and I think this is the best yet. Very fragrant Shiraz with a mixed fruit nose and some softer floral notes as well as a hint of candy and burnt sugar. Palate is smooth and layered with slightly more blackcurrant and a nice long finish with a hint of sweetness. All is good in this garden. — 8 days ago

Margaret Barossa Sémillon 2005

Citrus and Beeswax aromas getting honeyed nuances at 14 years. Fuller on the palate raising it to medium bodied but still lively. Different to old Hunter Valley Semillon. A marvellous drink showing the longevity of Semillon and another multi trophy winner on the Australian Show Circuit. — 9 days ago
