Black Label Sémillon 1979

The label is barely there, but i bought in the James Halliday's collection auction as a Wood Matured Black label 1979.
At this stage I opened a few of these old semillon and I am honestly loving them even though i realise that not everyone would.
Once they get to room temperature the magic happens.
This is complex and fairly fresh, not gone at all.
I smell almond, bruised apples, nutmeg, ginger, turmeric, lanolin, coriander. Autumn forest floor and boiled chestnuts. Nougat and marzipan. Peppermint.
It's very long. It's an experience. It talks its own language. I don't think there is anything like it anywhere else. 41yo, nearly my age, but much more interesting than me.

Le Grand Noir

Black Sheep Rosé Blend 2018

Вино плотно-красно-рубинового цвета.
Очень яркий, тяжёлый, богатый аромат вина с тонами спелых темных фруктов и ягод, пряностей и черного перца. Клубничное варенье завершает. Немного постоять не помешает(немного спиртов по началу)
Толстые густые ноги. Много танинов, структура густая.
Вкус вина очень сбалансированный, фруктовый, очень мягкий. Корица. Не кислотное, спирта не чувствуется
Длительное послевкусие, вяжет и сушит. Присутствует горчинка чёрного перца

St Hallett

Black Clay Shiraz 2018

Berry pepper nose, nice. The edges tingle my nostrils, also pleasant. A tinge of meatiness lingers. Definitely get the berry-cherry hit, and that meatiness in the nose is also present. The tannins are not hard but soft and pleasant. Great sipper on its own, and I think could handle a hearty meal. — 15 days ago

Black Label Syrah Blend 2006

@paxmahle kills it His alternate label exudes a refined Syrah. Deep rich sweet cherry with perfectly refined tannins. Light hints of black pepper add depth and character. Lower amounts of acidity, mean this is ripe for consuming. Just awesome — 2 hours ago

Double Black

Paso Robles Red Blend 2018

Double Black Merlot 2018, Paso Robles, California

Time for some Merlot on this

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Fruity nose of plums, cherries, wood, cloves, light vegetables, vanilla, spices, earth, light barnyard and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with black cherries, black plums, currants, light oak, spices, earth, wet leaves, herbs and dark coffee.

Medium finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice Merlot from Paso Robles. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel.

Needs an hour to open up properly and come into itself.

A nice wine to sip on by the porch. Good by itself or with food.

Thank you Wendy for sharing.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

89 points.
