Bin 2 South Australia Shiraz Mourvedre 2012

See 2 previous notes on Delectable. Much the same now. Very plummy on nose and palate. Meaty notes on the nose. Plum and raspberry on the palate. An excellent blend for Penfolds from their vast resources. Amazing the influence of the Mourvèdre for only being 11%. Shiraz is 89%. Paid $30 per bottle for this in 2016. Cheap for a Penfolds red. — 8 days ago

Lovely, fruity bouquet, classic Shiraz body and dryness but witha buttery finish. A very well-balanced wine. — 7 days ago

Cape Mentelle

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

The first of 4 bottles from my cellar. The nose has blackberry, violets and dried herbs. The palate has that trademark Margaret River herbaceousness but in this warmer vintage more cassis, fine persistent tannins which go on forever - almost silky. Just a beautiful rendition of Margaret River Cabernet with a very long life in front of it - say 20 years. Cape Mentelle one of the early vineyards and down in the south near the town. — 15 days ago

Penfolds

Bin 138 Barossa Shiraz Blend 2014

The first of 4 bottles and no notes taken. I do remember the Grenache in the blend made an impression with its raspberry notes. Barely medium weight overall. Earthy and spicy with a musky note. Drink through the 2020s. — 5 days ago

Bin 28 Kalimna South Australia Shiraz 2018

A bit tight upfront but definitely opened up as time went on. Concentrated dark blue fruit encapsulated by warm vanilla oak. Plenty of acidity and backbone to be tried again in maybe five plus years. — 8 days ago

Henry's Seven Barossa Red Blend 2020

Juicy and ripe black berries, great concentration and depth of flavor, soft tannins, and enough acid to prop up the fruit. I kept reaching for more! — 5 days ago

Home Hill

Kelly's Reserve Tasmania Pinot Noir 2014

Aromatic notes of rose and violet. Great depth of delicious flavour on the medium bodied palate. Red fruits - savoury and rich. See previous note for the 2014 - always excellent but 8 years of cellaring has enhanced this wine. To have won the Jimmy Watson Trophy for the Best One Year Old Dry Red at Royal Melbourne and still starring now at 8 years of age shows this is a wine for all seasons and all years. Should be a regular purchase. A Winner. — 4 days ago

Clarendon Hills

Piggott Range Vineyard Syrah 2005

Popped and poured; no formal notes. Best with air, this is still a baby. Blueberry pie, purple flowers, rotundone, some black pepper, cocoa, coffee and bacon fat. Super dry with stiff tannin still. Lovely acid. Finish is long…like whoa. Drink now with patience or before 2035, no cap. — 4 days ago

The Boxer Shiraz 2020

Deep, dark Ruby with a big fruity nose and lots of ripe berries with oaky notes. Jammy big and bold blackberry flavors with some spice, cacao, cedar and leather notes with nice mouthfeel. Big yet soft tannins with berry fruit carried over to the finish with bits of oak and sweet spice. Nice! — 21 days ago
