Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz 2010

This exceeded expectations. On the nose there is aroma of potpourri and garrigue mixed with blood scents and concentrated notes of dried cranberries. On the palette this is concentrated,intense. Loads of fruits, soft tannins and sweet licorice. Very well structured and multi-layered. Excellent. — 2 days ago

Shifflett Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Way too much wax! But great Mag other than that. Glad I held it longer than my first bottle. Much better than the Proprietary blend.
Great finish as it opens up, definitely reminds me of Rivers Marie Lore & Herb Lamb
Wish I had bought more, 16 no where to be found now

Ryan Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007

After leaving it about 4 hours open... This wine gave me a flashback. Way back in school while backpacking Europe, I bee-lined to the hospices de beaune. Armed with the supplied tastevin, I remember having the ‘78 Echezeaux. And being floored. I said to the old guy there... “wow... this is way better than Bordeaux!!!” He laughed something in French which I took as “you betcha”. — 22 days ago

de Villiers Vineyard Pinot Noir

2016 vintage. Rambunctious. Decant if possible. A little chunky and needs some time to knit together but all the components are there. Power in spades. — 10 days ago

i am the owl Syrah 2018

A few wines from last week’s 4th Friday event!

This was crazy unique. Can’t believe this is a 2018 Syrah from Australia. Make no mistake, this is more “Syrah” than it is “Shiraz”. As if you mixed a northern Rhône Syrah (think crozes-hermitage) with a Cru Beaujolais. Stemmy, carbonic, and very pure aromatically. The sub 12ABV is crazy. The palate shows some iron, sweet tar, black currant and peppercorn crusted rhubarb. Fun.

Wendouree Shiraz 2002

Another Valentines Day treat after the Ruinart. Dark dark Ruby in colour. Trademark Wendouree menthol/eucalyptus also some mint, gravel, blackberry and a tarry creosote element. On the medium to full bodied palate there are concentrated berry tarry and. Mineral flavours. Wonderful texture and tannin regime. Barb found the wine a little porty and I must admit not everyone goes gaga over Wendouree. From vines planted in 1893 and 1919. — 3 days ago

Beautiful balance and big fruit cabernet. Decanted and drank it slowly. Was an incense flavor bomb 2 hours after open. This 2016 is delicious and will get even better. — 4 days ago
