Very good, rich PN of CO. Deep dark red fruits n a some tannins. Very good body but might lack a little acididi. Debelops nicely in glass from tight black currant to ripe strawberry n a stone minerality. — 16 days ago

Happy National Wine Day!
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.
Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, cola, licorice, tobacco, chocolates, mocha, light vegetables, light earth and coffee.
Full-bodied, bold and big. Rich and extracted with medium plus acidity.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
Still very young and extremely fruit forward. Needs 5 to 10 years of bottle time to relax, but already drinking very nicely. Very chocolatey with lots of coffee notes.
Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show the complexity. Really comes home after 4 hours of airtime, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
A great wine to sip on, and would be great with a nice piece of steak too.
Aged for 2 years in French oak barrels, 60% New.
14.6% alcohol by volume.

I just love the way Unionville makes Chardonnay. This is a great example. It's very light of delicate aroma with hints of women and apples without a buttery finish. The neutral oak really lets them taste the wine come out. — 20 days ago
Mid Ruby in colour. Initial aromas of red and black fruits particularly raspberry and also whole bunch notes. Rich and sweet on the palate with plums and cherries finishing with smooth tannins. Fruit for this Pinot was sourced from the Coal Valley, East Coast and Channel sub-regions of Tasmania - the latter adding that richness like you see in Home Hill Estate. — 15 days ago

Purchased wine during visit to winery in October 2017. Strawberry and watermelon fruit on the nose. Beautiful red cherry, watermelon, raspberry and strawberry fruit, with a hint of orange. Enjoyable rose with racy acidity. — 12 days ago
Really nice, especially for the price. Celebrating making it through another week of educating my kids at home without any meltdowns. Including myself. 😂 — 5 days ago
When I am not home to choose which wines to open, the corks start flying. This btl shouldn't have been opened yet, since it just arrived earlier this week, but oh well. On the nose, lovely salinity, sour lychee, and peach. On the palate, fantastic acidity, excellent density, but somehow not harmonious...loads of wet stone minerality and nice salinity, but missing something. I'm going to give this the benefit of the doubt and call it bottle shock. — 10 days ago
