The Steading Red Rhone Blend 2016

On a wet, wintery night this is just the ticket. That rich nose of dark fruit and spice is so inviting, leading to a luscious wash of chewy blackberry and dark chocolate that starts soft and finishes firm, lingering with a grippy, sappy finish. — 25 days ago

Descendant Barossa Valley Shiraz Viognier 2005

Very earthy. Reminds me of a northern Rhône wine. Good fruit in the background. It is mature so drink up. — 2 months ago

Austin Hope Winery

Templeton Gap District Mourvèdre-Syrah Blend 2014

I will say that the only drawback to this wine is the super over extraction, and very high alcohol.

Discount that, and you have a wine with emense depth! Smelled and tasted exactly like smoked brisket. Classic tell tales of Syrah, and some peppery herbaceousness from the Mouvedre.

Sweet dark cherry, cassis, violet liqueur, charcoal, dried herbs, vanilla.

Very dark thick color, with some decent acidity. The best way to describe the style is that it could easily be mistaken for Washington Syrah, and or Barossa Shiraz similar to Torbreck.

Overall I was quite impressed. I think this is the cool stuff coming from Paso. Excellent Cabernet is coming out of this region but Rhone/Spanish Varietals are what I am excited about. I would have rated this even higher if the grapes were harvested just a few days earlier.

The Gask Shiraz 2013

Excellent shiraz from Torbreck, we got this at the winery during an awesome wine trip down under in December 2016. Doesn’t have the depth and complexity of their higher-end stuff, but is drinking really well right now. Great notes of blueberries, blackberries, along with hints of dark chocolate. Balanced, with a nice finish. Not obvious that this is going to improve a lot, so probably worth drinking sooner rather than later. — 4 months ago

RunRig Barossa Valley Shiraz 2006

This is the best Run Rig I’ve had. Big powerful nose - plumb, lavender, truck loads of black fruit, and menthol. On the palate it is full bodied but balanced. Fully integrated dark fruit, floral tones, but with a menthol character. Still enough tannin and fruit to provide perfect balance. Superb. — 2 months ago
