Edelspatz Noble Late Harvest 2019

Classic botrytis nose with dried apricot and honeysuckle and orange zest. Palate has great acidity to balance the sweetness with caramel, honey, and citrus coming out with great length. One of my new favorites — 2 months ago

Wild Ferment Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2019

Need to drink more SA stuff, this was really good. — 9 months ago


Iconoclast Red Blend 2017

Interesting and seamless blend. Syrah, pinotage, Cabernet, petit Verdot. Red spicy fruit meet s’mores. Earth, smoke. Great wine that is both very interesting, but comforting. Needs a better label. Seems like a generic brand-only effort, only the wax stop gives the impression of exclusive. — 2 years ago

Napa Valley Meritage Red Blend 2011

Great wine, but this is off the list after my 2001 Delheim Cab Sauv that I brought from the cellar (from South Africa) was corked. Rettke - you know this wine....this is one of the wines we had hoped was ok : ( — 6 years ago

Spatzendreck Late Harvest Chenin Blanc Pinot Blanc

Wow! Brought this back from South Africa in 1997 b/c of label. Did not store properly. Wine is absolutely delicious. Apricots, cherry, toffee and chocolate. Color has deepened to a more amber color from original straw. — 2 years ago

Vera Cruz Estate Shiraz 2003

Awesome Shiraz from Delheim. Smoky, earthy - a sexy dirty if you will. Think campfire in the African Bush with hearty game meats caught that day. Brilliant. World class wine..... — 6 years ago
