Cabernet Syrah Blend

Saint Joseph Syrah

This was incredible and was brimming with personality and life. It tasted like a hypothetical blend of Allemand, Gonon and Clape. A rare treat - 2005 — 3 days ago

Long Shadows Vintners Collection

Saggi Sangiovese Blend

The 2016 Long Shadows ‘Saggi’ is the best bottling of this storied wine that I have tried since they began producing this wine more than a decade ago. The ‘Saggi’ is a thrilling blend of Sangiovese (Boushey and Candy Mountain Vineyards) with 29% Cabernet Sauvignon (Weinbau Vineyard) and the remainder Syrah (Den Hoed Dutchman and Bacchus Vineyards). The nose is drop-dead gorgeous with bacon fat, black olive tapenade, mocha and fennel. The stunning range of aromas bring you back to the glass for more. Revealing a silky texture and a wonderfully ripe mouthfeel, the ‘Saggi’ slowly unveils smoked pork shoulder, black tea, milk chocolate covered cherry and roasted fig flavors. Decadent, layered and downright delicious, this beautiful wine will enjoy an exceedingly long life in the cellar. If enjoying in its youth be sure to give this a two hour decant.

Ex Nihilo Vineyards

Night Okanagan Valley Merlot Blend 2016

The grapes for this Bordeaux style come exclusively from Black Sage Bench vineyards. It’s an elegant blend of Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, and Merlot that deliver a well balanced wine resplendent in notes of blackberry, plum, pepper and chocolate. Softer tannins add to the elegance. An excellently crafted wine. — 12 days ago

Late night snack,
My favorite Maven of the 3 vintages I’ve tried, 14,15,16
This wasn’t 100% Grenache like the other two, this has 7% Mouvedre.

Love these Wasabi Macadamia, but better suited for a rose’ or white wine

Abadia Retuerta

Selección Especial Sardon de Duero Tempranillo Blend 2011

On day 1 this was too hard and hot, the second day the wine came together, but with 8 years of life it still tasted like a baby with an enormous big palate of jammy flavours, alcohol, acidity and port-like aftertaste. Will it ever come together? — 3 days ago

Innocent Bystander

Yarra Valley Syrah 2012

It’s amazing how many grape varietals do well in the Yarra Valley - Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Riesling is about the only mainstream variety that doesn’t. This Syrah is an excellent cool climate expression of the grape with aromas of Bacon, Spice and Indian Bazaar. A good new world rendition of Northern Rhone Syrah. Made by former Australian wine maker of the year - Steve Flamsteed when Innocent Bystander was under the auspices of Giant Steps. Not the case now. — 23 days ago

Trianon Fruška Gora Merlot Blend 2015

Very pleasant wine, black berry fruit in nose, young and fresh, just a little bit in the sweet side. Firm tannins and balanced acidity, medium plus aftertaste. Recommendable! — 10 days ago

Booker Vineyard

My Favorite Neighbor Syrah Blend 2016

Still as incredible as the first time i drank this. Black fruit and smoked chocolate on the pallet. Long finish with even keeled tannins. A hint of activity. Big and structured — 19 days ago
