Les Combaud St. Joseph Syrah 2018

Ripe, sweet wild red fruits and herbs, nice sweetness, a ton of black licorice, quite tannic. A lot of forest floor. Musty, meaty. There’s a quality here I appreciate but don’t feel is next level like others here... Still, this has a nice full body, good concentration and a lot of pleasure in the drinking. — an hour ago

Swan Valley Durif 2016

We celebrated our first International #DurifDay (10 June) with this beauty from the cellar. Say hello to the Olive Farm Wines 2016 Durif. I enjoyed every last drop of this beauty from Perth’s Swan Valley.

In the glass it’s a deep, dark red-purple colour. On the nose it’s full of dark berries and cherries, mocha, cherry cigar and a certain fresh morning air to it. In the mouth it’s juicy and voluptuous yet elegantly delicious. Gripping tannins, long finish and definitely too small a bottle for such deliciousness.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Blend of 88% Cab Sauv, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 1% Cab Franc sourced from estate-owned vineyards, aged 24 months in 100% new French oak, their 40th vintage. Still tasting great, young and juicy, should easily last another couple of decades+ in the bottle. Deep Ruby, dark fruits, spice, complex nose. On the palate juicy rich berry fruits, vanilla oak. well structured harmonious wine. Fine soft rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, tobacco and sweet earthy tones. Wow! — 3 days ago

2nd Day. Rich plummy and spicey nose is alluring for this cold night. The highly textured palate is showing plenty of youthful and vibrant fruit, great tannins and plenty of power.
This bottle was not cellared well before I acquired it but seems undamaged. Should be awesome at 12+ years old but it’s pretty awesome now too.
