Barrelman Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Part of the 40 wine blind tasting at the Downs Club and in my Top 5. Highly aromatic red and blue fruits. Outstanding in a 2nd tasting over the weekend. A wonderful young Cabernet from a good vintage in Coonawarra. I gave it 95 points on Thursday night and stuck with that rating from the half empty bottle yesterday. When we checked the Landed Unit cost of only $17 this will become the lesser priced Club Red yet worthy of the Premium Red. I can’t remember enjoying a young Cabernet as much as this. — 3 years ago

Salice Salentino Negroamaro Blend 2013

One of my favorite wines from Trader Joe's. Serious value. Smokey cherry, black pepper, and juicy fruit. Nero d'Avola comes to mind--although the same brand's actual Nero d'Avola is not nearly as good. — 8 years ago

Stentiford's Old Vines Shiraz 2014

Man o man!
It’s easy to dismiss a Shiraz when Cab is dominating the area.
When you’re talking about 1890 plantings it grabs your attention real quick.
Complex but subtle.
Refined yet wild for the lack of a better word. Captivating
