West Cape Howe

Shiraz 2021

Really good quaffer. My first Western Australia Shiraz. Powerful but well rounded. Still wind and sun blasted from a day in the Whitsundays. 😎🇦🇺 — 6 months ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Oh baby, it's Sauv Blanc time again in Texas! The temp climbed over 75° and that was all I needed.

Pale gold color with a hint of green. Fresh, tart, crisp, passionfruit, pear, green apple. Really well balanced, doesn't grip too tight, with a lingering, pleasant finish. I'm a happy camper.

Always a favorite for me!

Langhorne Creek Montepulciano 2016

Plum, Dust and a little toffee. Fairly closed nose but with time in decanter notes of ginger and marjoram. Wine is a little shy on nose and palate. Tannins are supple and pliant. The following night a bit too cold from the fridge. Comes about because of this brute of a summer we are experiencing in Australia and particularly Queensland. Drought Wind Dust with high temperatures over 40 degrees C and Bushfires for weeks! — 4 years ago

Alpha Box & Dice

Tarot McLaren Vale Grenache 2018

Philly natural wine #2. Carbonic Grenache had me dreaming of the carbonic Cab Franc from the Texas High Plains with @Brendan Devine. This doesn’t quite reach that rarefied air, but it’s good. Earthy, spicy tannins, and red fruits. Served chilled, would recommend. — 4 years ago

Graacher Domprobst Auslese *** Riesling Auction 2016

Jan A
9.5

Honeyed burnt citrus with muted apricots. Long finish. Quote from the winery:

The Graacher Domprobst is a “Große Lage”. Even before 1800 it was known that top wines can be produced from this site. The name Domprobst can be traced back to the fact that the interest income from the best vineyards was paid to the “Probst” of Trierer cathedral, who of course only choosed the best sites. The Graacher Domprobst has a slope of up to 70% with an optimal south-west orientation. The topography protects the vineyards from wind and frost and enables a very long ripening period.

The deep, slate soil dominated by clay minerals, together with the microclimatic conditions, enables the creation offinest fruit flavors and minerality. In combination with fine fruit acid, there is an incredible pleasure experience.

We use the grapes of the Domprobst to produce premium wines. In the dry wine sector, we recommend our Großes Gewächs, which must meet the strict criteria of the Bernkasteler Ring with regard to the quality of the grapes. In the noble sweet sector, the Auslese *** captivates with its distinctive fruit aroma and sweetness paired with fine acidity. The older vintages impress with their finesse and maturity, without showing any unpleasant aging marks.
