Nine Suns

Sunbird Red Meritage 2017

Decanted 45 min though think it needs more time, very young wine. Very aromatic fruit when opening the bottle. Dark red fruit - black cherry and plum, raspberry; chocolate, coffee, graphite, pepper, plush tannins, well integrated acidity, high ABV but hides it well. Medium finish. Will be interesting to see this evolve over next few years in the cellar. — a day ago

Nine Popes Barossa Valley Grenache Syrah 2012

3/6.5/9.5 = 19 out of 100 say 96
Needed a minimum 2 hour decanter and even then just kept getting better. Really pleasant scent and strong power in fruit and tannin evident (2012 vintage tasted in 2020). Full rich lingering flavours with a little alcohol heat on back palate

Tenuta di Renieri

Brunello di Montalcino 2015

Very very good. Starting to show tertiary already-- cherry tobacco and new leather. Well-balanced. Pleasant tannins.

Le K Voyage Junmai Daiginjo Sake 2017

Excellent along with the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Kinda cheated and went sashimi as opposed to cooking and some shellfish. Caviar/cockles/mackerel pate/octopus sashimi/salmon sashimi/yellowtail sashimi/tuna sashimi/stir fried clams. The extra “fish” hopefully makes up for the cheating ;) — a month ago

Thought it was mostly fried fish for this feast?

Mount Peak Winery

"Sentinel" Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep ruby color. Aromas of dark currants, berries in brown sugar and herbs. Blackberry, cherry and toasted oak. You’ll taste this one for many minutes after you’re done.

Even though I rarely trust lawyers, RP’s point system is what we know and hold dear. I like Decanters scoring the best. Any wine over 90, is one that I will invest in! Cheers!

Nine Oaks

Khikhvi 2018

By the glass with lunch, no formal notes. First time ever trying Khikhvi and I can imagine this is how wine was made 1000 years ago. Obviously extended skin contact with a copper salmon color. Funky fresh nose and complex on the palate with all sorts of interesting fruit and non-fruit things going on. Acid and tannin providing good structure. Certainly a change of pace and quite enjoyable actually. — a month ago
