Moonambel Shiraz 2012

OMG!!! If you’re lucky enough to own one of these (or are super lucky to own a case) drink it! It’s at its prime or just past - amazing structure and balance. Beautiful young fruits and acid on the front, amazingly long in the mid (like watch-a-movie long) and an expected, but rarely fulfilled finish and mouthfeel! This is an exceptional bottle and if anyone on here feels they have a few too many in their collection I’ll gladly make it worth your while to taste this Victorian princess again!!! — 8 months ago

St. Francis Winery

Artisan Collection Tres Viejos Old Vines Sonoma County Zinfandel 2017

Last up on the vertical tasting. The 2017 is definitely the fruitiest with the most refined sugar like notes. Cranberry on the nose. Upfront I get some black cherry with a nice hint of turbinado sugar. Slightly bitter like tonic water. Acid on it is a mild lime. Light juicy and lip puckering. A little young, but I expect it to open up a little more as it breathes. — a month ago

Domaine Saint Préfert

Collection Charles Giraud Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2015

Intens nose of black forest fruit and garrigue. Full bodied with lots of fruit and sweet ripe tannins. Long aftertaste. Still young but excellent after some breathing time. — 3 months ago

Del Dotto Vineyards

Vineyard 887 St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

For those that dismiss Del Dotto wines - think again! This wine was perfectly ready to drink immediately upon uncorking with a soft, warm vanilla oak surrounding mature dark fruit. The wine’s richness and balance were more like a Haut Brion than a young Napa cab! Still there are tannins that will soften in the cellar, so balance you temptation to empty your collection! — 7 days ago

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Very fruity but solid legs and deep purple colour. Goes well with a light meal. — 6 months ago

Francis Ford Coppola Winery

Diamond Collection Black Label Claret Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Very good for a 2017. Paired excellently with some prime rib. Not necessarily a complex wine but rich for a young age cab. — a year ago

Domaine Comte Abbatucci

Cuvée Collection Ministre Imperial Red Blend 2016


Loving my Corsican wines. This is great stuff. Thought it might be to big for being so young but NO. It’s drinking fine. Nice fruit and oh so delicious. — a year ago
