Five Vineyards Pinot Noir 2016

Drinking the 2016 which has more of vanilla finish to my palate. Nice wine in its own right. Great wine given the price (only $19 Canadian). Paired nicely with a chicken, black olive and bell pepper stir fry. — 10 days ago

CK Mondavi

Scarlet Five California Red Blend

Really nice blend for under $6! Starts with black cherry, with leather and licorice notes. Fruit and tanins, with no overpowering oak, a real bargain! 55% cab sauv, 28% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot, 3% Cab Franc, 1% Malbec. Verdot is the indispensable key to the blend. Glad I gave it a try after finding out CK was the winery behind the awesome, old-school Fortissimo wine. Give it a try! — a month ago

Rustenberg

Five Soldiers Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2009

17/20 (92/100) Дуб отлично интегрировался в аромат: поджаренный хлеб, яблоки, лимон. Тельное с высокой кислотностью. Вкус яблочно-грушевый с нотой хлебной корочки. Продолжительное послевкусие. Отличное шардоне. #capewine2018 — a month ago

Eighteen Seventy-Three Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

One of the Christmas wines enjoyed yesterday. I’ve had many Hall wines, but never this, and I will certainly make it a point to keep my eyes out for this. One of the best Hall wines I’ve had in a while.

Blind, I would have guessed this was Syrah. There was a significant amount of smoked meat, teriyaki coated blackberries, and roasted plum on the nose. The palate showed hoisin sauce, cassis, tobacco leaf and savory spices with a blackberry/blueberry pie finish. Less fruit here than other Hall wines, but the savory components really stood out in a good way.

@TheSkip : I know. Very surprised. I need to try another bottle to see how consistent the notes above are.

@Mike R : I can’t wait to try it! My in-laws have been Hall members for quite a while, but I’ve never had the Bishop. Looking forward to it!

SO smooth! easy to drink... not quite as forcefully flavourful as the pinotage, but still tasty... — a month ago

One Point Five Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Great structure and depth. Needs an hour in the decanter but the nose is great from the outset. Definitely young but already well balanced with good fruit and spice, tannins are present and a little drying but not overpowering. This will age really well and as always it would be great if the time machine was closer to completion to see what this will be in five to seven years. Enjoy one now and store a few. — 16 days ago
