Yarra Yering

Dry Red Wine No°2 Shiraz 2010

This full bodied wine leans towards savory, but also gives red fruit, meaty flavors, stewed fruit, and dried herbs. This wine speaks to me in a Chateau Musar kind of way.

Yarra Yering is one of Australia’s most iconic wineries. The 2010 Dry Red Wine No 2 is a unique blend consisting mostly of estate-grown shiraz (95%), with small portions of viognier, marsanne and mataro. It is described as sort of an Australian riff on an old-school Cote-Rotie. I call this one delicious.

First growth down under. Great wine!

Château Calon-Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Enjoying some wine with Santa on Christmas eve.

2 hour decant (moderate chunky/fine sediment). A prodigious dark crimson with some bricking. On the nose: beautiful notes of red cherry, cigar box, cedar, little barnyard funk, herbaceous. Taste: old school and elegant! with black plum, red currants, scorched earth, cedar, crushed stone, and tobacco. YUM! In a nice place with the decant and still time to go.

Opus One

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

Primary and supple, still prominent oak but meshed nicely with black earth and black cherry notes. I’d give this 2-3 more years at least but the components are there for something profound. — 2 months ago
