The Uprising Shiraz Blend 2017

Delicious. Deep, rich fruity flavor. Rum barrel gives it a dark, smoky aftertaste. — 6 days ago

Spier

Frans K Smit Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

17+/20 (92+/100) Тон макового кекса доминирует в аромате, сопровождаемый нотами спелых ягод ежевики, черешни, кедра, мокко и свежескошенной травы. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, но лишь слегка шероховатыми по текстуре танинами. Вероятно, лет через пять танины станут шелковистыми. Мощно и молодо. — 2 days ago

Pendulum

Columbia Valley Red Blend 2013

A blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 11% Syrah & 7% Malbec. Aromas of black fruits and spicy oak scents. On the palate raspberry and plum flavors with notes of tobacco and cacao adding in toasty vanilla oak. Medium+ finish, soft tannins ending with woody, earthy herb notes. Nice value. — 7 days ago

Château Haut-Marbuzet

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Color : Red
Wine estate : Château Haut-Marbuzet
Designation : Saint-Estèphe
Name : Saint-Estèphe
Country : France
Vivino : 4/5
Note : A classic in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. A dark robe with a deep nose of black fruits. On the palate, a beautiful acidity still present with a complexity that makes it very good. A final on blackberry, raspberry wood and wood. A delight !

Un classique dans l’appellation Saint-Estèphe. Une robe sombre avec un nez profond de fruits noirs. En bouche, une belle acidité encore présente avec une complexité qui le rend très bon. Un final sur la mûre, framboise des bois et bois. Un régal !

Greg Ballington
9.3

Preparing for the release tomorrow!

Medium to dark ruby red with a little transparency. Dark nose and layered with graphite, anise, black olives, raspberry or red cherry liqueur and leather. Medium bodied with medium tannins (6/10). Love the funkiness throughout with complex flavors too. Layers of black fruits, smoked meats, gravel, aniseed, spiced, a touch floral, olives, and black pepper. Long finish and lingering finish with solid acidity. Drink till 2029.

Spice Route

Malabar Shiraz Blend 2006

Loved this South African blend (64% Shiraz, 15% Mourvèdre, 9% Petite Sirah, 9% Grenache, 3% Tannat). At 12 years old, this was drinking perfectly. Dark and concentrated in the glass, the nose was full on baking spices. The palate delivered bold dark red fruit, in a silky texture.

Our neighbors have a home in South Africa and are introducing us to some local wines that are delicious but sadly hard to find in the US - if anyone knows where to find this please drop me a line in the comments! This would be a superb every day drinker.

Campo alla Sughera

Arnione Bolgheri Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

Picture my speech bubble saying “is it okay to include this in an overview of cab around the world?” I mean barely this is only 40% Cabernet Sauvignon but regardless its verrrry tasty and balanced. And acidic and fruity yet earthy and it’s a Super Tuscan mostly the two cabs: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20 cab franc. Then 20 merlot and 20 petit Verdot. It’s the college student who joined every club but never got to be president of any of them. Well rounded and appealing. Distinctive not of any one thing exactly but so appealing and damn reliable. It gives you ripe cherries and red and black cassis, a whiff of the vanilla and spice of oak with a crunchy bite of oak. It’s balanced. It’s pleasurable. The more I drink cabs the more I think it is a ringleader than wants it’s cohorts to back it up. Good on its own? Sure thing it is substantial. But. Better than many of its blending partners and damn when it shares the spotlight...it is a star with back up dancers and a plan — 16 days ago

Colgin

IX Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

This was the Mystery Wine which I ended up picking - more an educated guess than anything. It boiled down to the fact I didn’t think it was from Bordeaux and the host is the Australian agent for Colgin which many Aussies would not have heard of and he saw the opportunity to show it to the 20 guests. The Wine had more rhubarb and raspberry notes. Richer than the Pomerol Wines - more new world. Very good but not cheap at over $1300 AUD. Others preferred at that price. I have had the Colgin “Herb Lamb “ which was equally impressive and expensive. In November 2017 Ann Colgin and her husband sold 60% of the winery to French Luxury conglomerate LVMH. — 13 days ago
