Juniper Estate

Juniper Estate

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Rich with fruit and oak with good depth and that trademark Margaret River herbaceousness. Juniper Estate represents great QPR in Margaret River at $50 competing with their better known neighbours in Wilyabrup who are twice the price plus. Drink the last 2 bottles in the next few years. — a month ago

Garage Wine Co.

Lot #55 Sauzal Vineyard Carignan Field Blend 2014

Rustic in a very good way. Nose has crunchy red berries, juniper, stony gravel, and a teeny bit of leather. Forceful flavors buoyed by forceful acids, pure, zingy, cherry fruit and a chalky minerality. Some relatively soft tannin. Not an erudite, pinky-extended sipper, but a great wine for pasta night. — 21 days ago

Tasted through the entire line up at Derek’s house in April 2018. After, we all took a couple of bottles to dinner, got up the next morning & drove 2 1/2 hours to this vineyard to harvest. It was a good 24 hours. Interesting farming in the vineyard that I’ve not see anywhere else in the many regions I’ve traveled.

Wanderer's Heart Red Blend 2018

Alder Yarrow
9.4

If you had to pick a wine that somehow managed to capture the zeitgeist of what deliciousness means today, this little beauty would be a candidate for sure. Forest berries, Rosemary, juniper, cedar and sour cherries all crunchy with crystalline acidity and a dusting of tannins. A fantastic, yes, even exotic, blend of Grenache Noir, Cinsault, Grenache Gris, Mourvèdre, and Syrah from vineyards across the Western Cape of South Africa. 2018 Thorne & Daughters “Wanderer’s Heart” Cape Red Blend. Stunner. — 3 days ago

Astro Lab Brewer, Silver Spring MD. Hazy IPA with Mosaic, Columbus and Citra hops. 7.1%
Medium gold, big, slightly rocky head that is quite persistent. Knock-out nose which to me reads as pine resin/juniper berry. Very well balanced with a just-so textural play between hop bitterness and malty sweetness.

Domaine Charvin

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2007

Such youth and freshness going on from such a rich and heady vintage. These wines age so well. At first the nose was loaded with chocolate covered cherries, raspberry coulis and lavender. With air the more mineral and herbal notes that define these wines really came through. Crushed stones, garrigue, cool herbs, juniper and hot iron. Several hours of air and the exotic spice and leathery tertiary notes began to come through with spice cake, truffles, old leather, cinnamon, amaro, cloves, mushroom and roast meat. Gorgeous fruit on all fronts and subtle tannic strength. Brett is spot on, adds so much complexity and never detracting. — a month ago

The 86 Co.

Fords London Dry Gin

Straw and grass cuttings combine with wildflowers to vie with juniper. Dried coconut and ripe pineapple slices herald tropical lemon and lime and ginger snaps with a lychee surprise that includes dill lemongrass and sassafras. Lemon oil and dilute lime unfold to expose pine and imposing juniper, sweet basil and a textural mint sensation. Prickly neat, but add a cube and voila! instant roundness and integration of parts bordering on perfection. Medicinal in feeling only; lingering and potent. Light on the tonic, and if you must garnish, I suggest a small wedge of lime or cucumber, otherwise it is a botanical delight. Healing anyone?

Jarvis Winery

Estate Grown Cave Fermented Lake William Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Celebrating 6 years of wonderful marriage with my beautiful bride, @Krystal Vento

This was my first good bottle of Jarvis and I was very impressed. It took about 1.5-2 hours to finally open up but once it did it was singing. Highly expressive notes of eucalyptus, juniper, sage, plums, blackberries, pipe tobacco, and boysenberries.

Try the Chardonnay’s from them. Especially if you enjoy an occasional new world chard.

One of my favorite producers, and a total must visit when in the valley. I agree with @David L about their Chardonnay (the unfiltered finch hollow is magical, but expensive). Their merlot may be my favorite in all of Napa.
