Basket Press Barossa Valley Shiraz 1998

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of Ali vs Frazier 1, I decided to open the “Ali” and see how it compared to the ‘98 Grange (Frazier) that I drank last month. True to form this bottle “floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee.” Delivered all the power of the Grange with much more finesse. Both wines are true champions but similar to the “Fight of the Century” a slight edge to Grange (Frazier). — 2 days ago

Vintage Port Blend 2019

I always love expressions in port. Tobacco and golden raisins and all sorts of wonderful leather and chewy dried fruit notes.  — 16 days ago

Vintage Port Blend 1983

Spirit a bit disjointed initially, but with some nice Colston-Bassett Stilton to balance the spirit, Graham sweetness is finally starting to show, this is actually far better than initial impressions it was kinda dry and unbalanced, solid Porto!! — 15 days ago

California Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Delicious-Oakey and full bodied. Was on sale at kroger but would pay more than the 11 dollars I paid to try it. I think you could break this out at a dinner party and impress any guest as it tastes complex but not too much so - understandable if you ask me. Like a wine you’d want to get to know more about but have some probing questions about. — 18 days ago
