A black fruit preserve of a nose,
Lush, heavy bodied, with red cab type fruits, mint, tarragon, slight tannins from skins.
A really wonderful mouthfeel, with eclectic flavors. Love the Vacq, so many styles here.

O'Riada Shiraz 2013

This is really great juice. On the nose, imagine a new tyre or the smell of new tennis balls when you pop the pressurised can overlaid with spice and fragrant herbs. Palate is smooth with a long finish, perfect balance of fruit, liquorice, cloves and violet candy. Shiraz from the cooler Canberra region seems to have allowed some great complexity to develop and even bring a French edge to the wine. I recommend this one. — a day ago

Sunny Sunday lunch with panzanella salad. Absolutely perfect. Didn’t notice the alcohol but refreshing acidity and restrained fruit worked for me! — 10 days ago

Domaine de la Mordorée

La Dame Rousse Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2018

I got suckered into this delicious and relatively expensive rose by a particularly enterprising sommelier. One who, not shockingly, also talked me into several other bottles just beyond my max price range. In any event, this is deliciously complex. He told me it is funky, but it is only funky the way your 80-year-old grandma dancing the tootsie roll to Earth, Wind, and Fire is funky. Instead, this is delightfully complex and creamy, with a finish of black pepper and faint peppermint. — 9 days ago
