Fun. Love this throwback to the time before Aussie Shiraz was the Argentine Malbec of today. — 8 months ago
Breakfast of champions (throwback to Saturday morning). All Granny Smith apple and mineral. Vibrant. pristine. Can’t recall whether the champagne was that good (though I am partial to Laherte Freres) or whether it was just the taste of sweet victory and relief. — 6 months ago
Lovely throwback from our honeymoon!! — a year ago
Ultimate badassery from one of the most underrated growers in Beaujolais. A real throwback to the ‘60s and ‘70s crus from giants like Thorin. Burgundian sap and an almost Northern Rhônish savor make this what it always is: the definitive and most geographically faithful example of the transition between Pinot Noir and Syrah that great Gamay offers. The hipsters can have all the natty, stinky carbonic swill they want; I’ll take this. — a year ago
Throwback for me. As Zin was my go to grape in the 90s, the single vineyard Ravenswood wines were my favorites! I visited in 1999/2000ish and drank from the barrels.
900 cases made, this has a bold blueberry and black pepper nose, mint adds on the palate, a bit more mellow than I remember it, which is great for my older taste. Medium plus body, medium tannins.

Fancy seeing this in Malaysia. This wine's a throwback to when I first got into wine back in Australia. I can clearly remember being recommended this Sancerre by our local bottle shop as a study of the appellation. In hindsight, I can see why. Excellent typicity in this 2018 iteration - on the nose, ripe gooseberry and melon fruit, flint, and a grassy asparagus-like note. The palate's less overt, showing more grapefruit and green apple. It finishes a little "sweet" for my liking, but that's tamed by crisp acidity and a subtle stony character. While it doesn't bode well with my preference these days, this drinks well as a nice trip down memory lane. — 10 months ago
