El Coto de Rioja

Coto de Imaz Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Garnacha 2012

2012 vintage. Expected more from a Gran Reserva. Medium color depth, shy aromas medium body. Lacks the Temparnilo signiture characteristics — 15 days ago

Mullineux Family Wines

Swartland Syrah 2017

A solid act brought from the Mullineuax Syrah 2017, well representive of its varietal and provenance alike with its fresh but ripe fruit and floral qualities that surrounds a a spicy and stoney savouriness. Ripe and fruity tannins with a fresh acidity keeps palate in check. Somewhat shy on the finish though and lacks the complexity and concentration to reach further. Day 2 and its open up beautifully, more high definition and deeper interplay between the savory and primary characters raising the overall interpretation to a greater level. — 2 days ago

Jacques Selosse

Substance Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Ripe, round and full of red fruit goodness. Not shy or retiring...just a touch of earth/funk. Complex and compelling over the course of the afternoon. Long finish...sweet apple and ripe pear nuances with a touch of baking spice and biscuit. An intellectual, rather than an emotional tour. — 5 days ago

Soave Garganega 2018

Very nice entry level Soave from Tamellini. Light golden color with green hues. Nose is bit shy at firdt but opens up to ripe apple and some peach notes complemented by herbs and white currant. On palate this is nicely balanced with apple, lenon ang grspe notes, slight mineral vein coming up toward the end. Slight sweetness balances the acidity well. Makes me want to try the more serious bottlings which I think is a calling card for a great entry level wine. Seriously good stuff for the price — 8 days ago

Canoe Ridge Vineyard

Reserve Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

I had great experience with their estate Merlot, and this reserve cab is quite impressive as well.
The initially shy nose slowly reveals black and blue berries, cedar, pencil lead, incense, cocoa, and hint of crushed rocks. The slightly ripe palate is round yet delicate, showing its classy with well woven streaking acidity and mellow tannins.
100% Cab from two vineyards from HHH, raised in 100% French oak barrel (45% new) for 20 months.

Weingut Jakob Jung

Klosterberg Trocken Riesling 2018

Green apples and shy apricots on the nose, with a whiff of white pepper. On the palate however this is not shy at all. Racy, steely lemon acidity with good weight and electric tension. This is unmistakably Rheingau in all its beauty. A lovely wine and drinking very nicely already now. — 10 days ago

James Bryant Hill

Central Coast Chardonnay 2015

I like this style. butter and pear, juicy ripe cali and no apparent oak flavor. Asako's style! good for the price. I think butterscotch and just shy of being too 'candy sweet' (from oak not from sugar) in a chuggable way. hedonistic ripe — 3 days ago

La Conreria d'Scala Dei

Les Brugueres Priorat Grenache Blanc 2017

Definitely better on the second day, which is odd for a white. Pale in colour. Quite shy initially but opens up to reveal lots of spice and complexity, wrapped around the melon core of garnatxa blanca. Delicious though they are not giving it away at €18. — 14 days ago
