Single Vineyards Stellenbosch Syrah 2014

Plump and chewy with a core of blackberries and baking spice. Lush tannins with a mouthwatering finish. New world style but delicious. A WS Top 100 and well deserved. — 3 days ago

Estate Red Wine 2000

Raclette night. Closed out the night with this decanted beauty. Plum and prune nose with cedar box and some forest floor notes. Still a lot of fruit and life, integrated soft tanins and great acid. — 4 months ago

Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Burst of green bell pepper at the start that’s fading to dusty ripe fruit on the verge of jammy, but not there yet. Baking spices to an almost berry pie without a crust flavor. Tannins form a firm backbone and has a sweet to spicy to round ripe finish. Delicious. — 2 months ago
