Coonawarra, Limestone Coast

Rosemount Estate

Show Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

This was showing really nicely considering the age and the fact that it was $7 a bottle in Kearney, Nebraska.
Some fruit remains with oak and a touch of spice leading the charge. Get at this now if you haven’t already.

Morambro Creek

Padthaway Shiraz 2016

Fruity, well balanced, hint of pepper on the rear of the palate, truly a Shiraz in nature, yet very drinkable. My first wander through this vineyard, may it not be my last. — 6 days ago

St. Marys Vineyard

Bells & Whistles Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Color of vivid ruby, clear with a bit bloody grapefruit note. Nose is nice with dark fruits, oak, a bit spice and strawberry, a bit crayon, and full of nose. Taste is subtle sweetness, very easy to drink, paint, dried strawberries, zesty note, ripe grapes, a bit mineral, and flavors are plenty in harmony. Aftertaste is also long with oak and some more sweetness, some more tobacco leaves, and some subtle acidity, low tannins and very tasty. Nice jewel. — 15 days ago

L'Ermitage Brut Anderson Valley Chardonnay Blend 2009

Today was my annual hosting of the Wednesday Wine Committee. There was 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert, all provided by me. Tasted blind, as always.

Copying my note from the ‘07 vintage as the wines are near identical. I will say that I didn’t get as much yeast out of the ‘09 as I did the ‘07, but it’s hard to know if it was simply due to age. I’ll hold back a bottle or two for a few years and revisit then.

Next to Ultramarine and the Reserve Schramsberg Sparklers, this is one of the best domestic Sparklers I’ve had, especially at the price ($50). Nose was grilled honeycomb, baked yeast and a small bit of limestone. Extremely creamy on the front palate...bubbles were so incredibly tiny. Multiple bubble strings. Wonderful lemon bread palate, with a crisp, chalky finish highlighted by grilled pineapple. There seemed to be more green apple notes here compared to the ‘07 vintage, but may be due to youth. This is an excellent US version of champagne.
