Weston hosted Friday group today and was it definitely a can’t miss tasting. Wow! Absolutely knocked it out of the park with heavy hitter after heavy hitter. Similar to Wednesday group, all wines are tasted blind.
At 39yrs old, strutting just fine. Didn’t have the smooth honeyed finish of Sauternes and based on the color, I was unsure if it was port or not (guessed 30+ yr tawny port). Cherry liqueur, toffee, and almond. — 7 days ago
A lovely tawny port with dessert to finish off the evening! — a month ago
@ Shift Drinks. BTG pour. Only 6 75ml pours are being sold. Get here! Supposedly this bottle is from 1934, and of a solera. Dry white Port. Caramel/copper in color. Bouquet of nutmeg, banana bread, raw dough, cloves, cinnamon, cedar and a strong whif of alcohol. But also there’s also a red apple aroma that’s 👌. Spiced nuts on the 👄 and that red apple along with some orange peel too. Savory like bacon or five spice roast duck. — 13 days ago
Another Top 5 Australian Pinot. Will be interesting to compare with Bass Phillip Premium from the same vintage 2008. Same pale tawny colour when poured into the decanter. Intoxicating more dirty aroma than the BP. Loved it. Sour cherry liqueur. Ready to drink but has a future. Savoury tannins. As with the BP with time in the decanter the palate became sweeter but savoury and earthy enough to be a genuine Burgundy contender. Obviously great terroir and excellent wine making like the BP. Beautiful Pinot Noir any way you cut it with enough strength to go another 5 years. Remained fresh and vibrant throughout the tasting experience. The Verdict: Bass Phillip slightly more complex and Burgundian. — 13 days ago
18/20 (94/100) Насыщенный, сложный букет ароматов табака, пионов, вишни, грецкого ореха, кофе, чёрного шоколада и сырых камней. Высокая кислотность и умеренная танинность. Во вкусе преобладают грецкие орехи, вишневое варенье и горький шоколад. Великолепно! — 21 days ago
Burnt brick red/brown on the eye. Medjool dates, dried cherries, cigar box, cedar on the nose. Palette sees more of that delicious cooked dates in butter, sweet caramelized vinegar, tart cherries, medium- acid, long, savory, buttery finish. Delightful port and love the age on this and also like that the alcohol is not overwhelming- it’s integrated into wine. Not dead yet and lots of vigor to be enjoyed! — 12 hours ago
