The Instigator California Syrah 2016

Bin No 1 Great Western Shiraz 2015

Dark crimson in colour. Some meaty charcuterie aromas. Medium weight and spicy with savoury berry fruit. Love this style. No expected black pepper - probably because of the riper fruit and warmer year. No overt oak influence because of the use of large format oak casks. Most enjoyable. — 8 months ago

@TheSkip Absolutely. Love the savoury spicy style with a light oak touch.

Turley

Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Like a silk stocking! Evocative and ultra smooth. Rarely have I had such a young wine with such balanced tannins. Turley needs to make more Cabernet!!!! Great #QPR — a year ago

Palari

Rosso del Soprano Sicilia Nerello Mascalese Blend 2011

Wow, after being disappointed by a poor showing from the 2009 bottle earlier this year, this 2011 is a stunner - immediate floral notes with earthy undertones on the nose give way to a dark cherry and subtle leather palette with a great integration between acid and some lingering tannins. What a deal for about 1/3 the price of the Palari Faro - which I️ cannot wait to try for this vintage. #QPR #Palari — 2 years ago

@"Odedi" not on TheSkipScale®️which is based on the premise that a wine at 89 points is practically unmarketable. My scale and yours are wildly different. 8.8=undrinkable. 8.9=passable but completely forgettable. 9.0=good. 9.1=very good 9.2=excellent. That way when I go back and look at my stuff, I know what I was thinking 🙃

Multi Vintage Santa Barbara County Syrah

Very nice syrah! Loads of bacon fat and dark fruits and olive. Great #qpr at $35!

I wish more producers would embrace the multi vintage!

Tormaresca

Trentangeli Castel del Monte Aglianico 2014

I️ really enjoyed this Aglianico blend with Cab and Syrah from the Antinori Puglia house - Tormaresca - from 2014, this is still a baby and needs a few more years for the savory flavors to outduel the tannins, high #QPR — 2 years ago
