Cuvée Secret Reserva Red Blend 2017

Fruchtig und erdig in der Nase. Unglaublich vielschichtig. Ein Erlebnis aus verschiedenen Geschmacksphasen bei jedem Schluck. Wird zunehmend schwerer und voller im Mund. Dunkle Schokolade, dann Brombeeren die in eine sanfte Schärfe übergehen. Abgang: Slowakisches Feuer!
Toller Wein.

A Noble Blend White Blend 2020

Takeout sushi from Minami in Yaletown, so grabbed this at a little wine shop next door. Okanagan white blend that leans towards Riesling. Medium dry, decent acid, lychee-citrus/apple. Gets the job done although sweeter than I prefer. $15 bottle sold for $35. Average wine is expensive in Vancouver. — 18 days ago

La Reserve Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012

At its prime. Dark red flavors of raspberry and currants, mixed with spiced ripe blueberries evolved in an elixer of complex layers of earthy, ripe fruits and hints of tobacco and mushroom that spread to your cheeks and settled in your throat. Perfect combination with Tammy’s secret recipe Mexican casserole. 😋 — 15 days ago

Oakville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

Deep dark plum in the glass. Basically impenetrable. A touch of bricking on the thin edges. On the nose, the fruit is barely clinging on but still present. Plums and blueberries are the dominant notes here. A heavy dose of toasted cedar and green bell peppers. There’s faint floral aromas of violets along with a shock of burnt tobacco.

This is about as Napa as Napa gets. I was quite worried about how this Cab would present but it’s still alive and kicking. The end may be nigh but not quite nigh enough. Pleasant acid and well integrated tannins. Big and rich as you would expect an Oakville Cab to be but still smooth after hours of decanting. Plenty of chocolate with a dash of vanilla. The fruit on the tongue is diminished and subtle but still showing pretty well. Cherry pie and blueberry cobbler. The finish is medium length with just a touch of soft spice. This was so much fun and a great experience. Definitely mature and knocking on the door of almost gone but still good, nonetheless.

Forest Hill Vineyard

Block 9 Shiraz 2010

Wonderful aromatics of ripe plum, spice, pepper, dried meat, liquorice and iron. The medium bodied palate reflects the complexity of the nose with savoury dried red and black fruits with spice. I love these cool climate Shirazes which have the spice pepper and liquorice yet are quite rich in intensity and remain medium bodied. The product of old vines planted in 1965 when Forest Hill was established and making it the oldest vineyard in the Great Southern, near the town of Denmark. I bought this as an Aged Release from the Cellar Door pre-Covid. These days it is difficult to enter fortress Western Australia. — 13 days ago

If you're a famous tennis guy, I hear the country is wide open, or not, guess it depends on the direction of the wind.

I think he will be deported in the end. Everyone else has been vaccinated - why not him. In his defence Tennis Australia and the Victorian State Government gave him an exemption (in defiance of the Federal Government) and he arrived in the country expecting to play. If he wanted to play he needed to be vaccinated - simple as that. US player Tennys Sandgren, another anti-vaxxer has gone home. A messy business all round.
