Donna Elena Piemonte DOC Barbera 2012

Blind I would have that it was a delicious older #CaliCab because of its overripe juicy red fruits and velvety tannins, but this Barbera from my favorite boutique Barbaresco producer was a stunner — 6 years ago

Barbera that passes as a Cab?


Bête Noir Shiraz 2020

Another candidate in the 41 wine lineup at the Downs Club tasted blind. Unlike many of the other candidates which had ripe black fruits from 2018, this had notes of dried meat and charcuterie. Full bodied - more savoury than fruit driven. Spinifex is a boutique Barossa producer. Winemaker is the Kiwi star, Peter Schell. Very Good. — a year ago

Guyot Douro White Blend 2016

A bit modest at first, but with a pronounced minerality that is confidently taking over the show, and evolving into a salty complexity. Great presence and a vibrant texture on the palate is driving the fruit through the finish. A very smart wine. — 5 years ago
