Côtes du Jura Poulsard Blend 2018

This needs at least 5-7 more years. After 4-hr decant, lovely aroma with hints of future glory, bright fruit, astringent tannin. Like Barry White—this wine has so much love to give. Just needs a bit. Elegant rusticity. — 6 months ago

The Lodge Hill Dry Riesling 2018

Better than I expected and excellent for the price.
Lime zest, tangerine, as well as strong hints of beeswax and minerality on the nose. Bone dry with medium plus acidity. Great with many kinds of food.

Reserve Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

My #FridayCabernetfix

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet plums, blueberries, violets, black currants, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, alcohol, peppercorn and coffee.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, chocolates, light vegetables, mocha, peppercorn, leather and earth.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is another great Napa Cabernet. Well balanced and a little subdued, yet still showing Napa Cabernet characteristics. Not too extracted, which is nice to see.

This is from a great vintage, but still needs a few more years to become its own, although delicious now. A good sipping to share with friends.

Teeth staining color, so not a good choice for a first date.

Good by itself or with food. Good right out of the bottle, but definitely better after a couple of hours of airtime.

Thank you Barry for sharing.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in 85% New French oak barrels for 22 months.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

Good offering from them and still a relative value for a Howell Mtn. wine.

The Armagh Clare Valley Shiraz 2010

Worth waiting for. Smooth, full flavored, elegant. Berries and mild tannins. Decanted for about 60 minutes. Better yet with more time in glass. A special Valentines Day treat. — 3 months ago

The McRae Wood Shiraz 2016

We recently had a 40 wine blind tasting at the Downs Club to select a new Premium Member’s Claret. This wine was in my Top 5 but in the end did not get the nod. Dark rich colour with plenty of ripe fruit and toasty oak but still manages to have notes of black pepper in this full bodied red. I liked this from an exceptional vintage in South Australia. — 6 months ago
