Carter Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007

Palmer Emmitt
9.4

I bought six bottles after tasting out of barrel in 2008 - and still have two left after this one (along with one from McCrone Vyd). These wines continue to pleasantly surprise me with this much time in the cellar. I think it’s maybe nearing the end of its “post-prime” but still a really wonderful experience - the nose is expressive if a little earthy; the fruit character is rich cherry pie and very intense; the mouthfeel is silky and the finish loooooong. The dusty and oxidative notes are definitely beginning to peak their head out - if you like that kind of thing, then, WOW, given how much fruit is left. What a treat. Thanks, Ken. — a month ago

Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir 2016

Had the opportunity to attend a virtual tasting this evening with Ken Brown himself. This wine came out of my cellar a little early as it was on the tasting menu. Lovely wine, great time! — 9 days ago

Bin 7 Riesling 2012

Pale Lemon in colour. White peach notes on nose and palate along with herbal and Lime notes - a little grapefruit. Overall the impression of ripe grapes in a really good season gives one the impression of almost off dry but it is dry. Not as much tension as a few years ago - this being my last bottle. At its peak if you like mature Riesling with a swipe of cleansing acidity to finish off. Again, little or no kerosene or petrol notes which I am starting to believe is a wine fault and the subject of sunburnt grapes as Canberra Riesling producer Ken Helm once told me. 3 Trophies and many Gold Medals on the Show Circuit. — 8 days ago

La Combe Verte Chardonnay 2017

I think Ken is making some of the best domestic Chardonnay, possibly one of the best in the NW. The wines have always been about freshness, purity, and tension, but the level of balance and detail continues forward. This “entry” level proves it, and like any great Burgundy domain’s Bourgogne level wine, the level of care and detail here reflect the wider scope of his wines. I would argue that this wine would smoke just about most white burgundy in its price point and even above. — a month ago
