Wolf Blass

Black Sheep

Cry Wolf Black IPA


This is a new beer launched to market on 6th June 2022 by the Black Sheep brewery.

It is a very pleasant black IPA looking like a porter or stout but with a strong hoppy presence.

The brewer says "Black malt, chocolate malt and flaked oats join Maris Otter pale malt to add roasty caramel and chocolate notes and gives the beer an intense dark appearance. Masses of Cascade, Columbus, Chinook and Citra hops create woody pine, biting citrus and bright tropical flavours".

To drink, it was as they say above. I thought the malt and hop balance worked well making sure the citrussy hops didn't overpower the malt flavours.

Tasting it with Wolf Blass Red Label Shiraz Cab and this is much dryer and less sweeter, which I like! — 2 years ago

Vine Hill Ranch

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The 2016 Vine Hill Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is a drop dead stunning wine from the Phillips and their talented team of Mike Wolf and Françoise Peschon. This majestic Cabernet bursts opens to seductive aromas of dark currants, blueberries, spices, graphite, iron, violets and a touch of sage all emerging from the glass. On the palate this is equally as impressive, as it boasts a gorgeous full body that shows incredible depth, with a resonating core or ripe dark fruits that expands beautifully through the long polished finish. This is one of the most compelling wines from this fabulous vintage, and readers should not hesitate to get their hands on this years exceptional release from VHR. — 3 years ago

Tart. Very tart. Needs air. Could be a Burgundy. I would let this mellow out or keep for 3 more years or so. Forest floor limes? Cherry. — 3 years ago

Chardonnay 2016

Greg Ballington

Second and last of the blind white wines for our South African blind tasting. Relatively new to the US-DC market and brought in by Alyssa and Ian Red Wolf Imports. Made up of 100% Chardonnay, 100% barrel fermented and aged for nine to ten months in around 20% new French oak.

Medium yellow with a touch of oak and butter on the nose. A little bit of citrus too. Medium plus acidity (6.5/10) and rounded with a medium body. A creamy texture and mouthfeel throughout with notes of lemon zest, a touch of stone fruits and minerality. Needed to warm and some time in order to open up and lengthen. Medium plus to long finish. Would be very interesting to try with a couple years in the bottle. Drink till 2026. (92+)
