Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

A pretty good find at the grocery store while on vaca. Very ripe fruit-plum, blackberry, black cherry. Quite oaky as well. Solid backbone though. Tannins still pronounced but still strong enough to balance the fruit. Drink now. Enjoyable. — 13 days ago

Wendouree

Shiraz Mataro 2011

From the disappointing wet 2011 vintage in South Australia where many producers did not produce a wine, but, typically with old vine fruit from Wendouree, this showed well. Quite ripe considering the vintage, yet medium weight palate - liquorice and spice notes with excellent intensity. Those old vines cover a multitude of sins like a cold wet vintage. 11 years is rather young for a Wendouree but given the vintage this was very polished. Has enough guts to have another 5+ years in the cellar. — 5 days ago

Cuvaison

Cabernet Sauvignon 1978

Talk about wow 🤩! This vintage was spectacular after a couple hours of being opened. Black fruit still present, tertiary notes of spice box and leather. Still alive and singing! Silky soft tannins and a finish that will rival Whitney Houston’s longest note. — 8 days ago

Mayacamas Vineyards

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

This did not disappoint. It’s still showing pretty youthful and even after being opened for a couple hours it still was opening up and developing. Black and red fruits, earthy dirt notes and tobacco spice. Integrated tannins but still present. Another 10 years and this wine is going to be 100pt worthy! — 8 days ago

Wall Road Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Mt. Veeder Chardonnay 2019

My new Favorite white, just love mountain fruit! Named for mountain range dividing Napa & Sonoma, old stone winery dug into side of dormant volcano crater in 1889, remained in production ever since. Pale lemon with aromas of Tropical and stone fruit with complex spice and floral notes. On the palate flavors of apple, pear and citrus with light oak and nutty tones, fresh and vibrant, well integrated. Long finish ending with fruit and flinty mineral characteristics. Long aging potential. Nice! — 6 days ago

Nuts, the 2019 is not available out here. Just 2020 and possibly 2018. Have you tried those?

John, yes I have had several bottles of the ‘18 (actually bought a case) have none left but the ‘18 should be great with a bit of age on it. Wish I had one left.

Henschke

Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz 2005

2nd best wine. I called it Amarone and was shocked at what it was as I’ve had it a few times before. On the sweeter side with massive depth. Big wine with lovely texture. Medium plus finish. — 18 days ago

Shaw and Smith

Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2012

This developed positively from previous tastings here on Delectable. My brief notes - Liquorice; more savoury than fruit driven - Bacon, Charcuterie, spicy notes on the nose and medium weight palate. Some pepper. Very Northern Rhone in style. Certainly built for the long haul. I have 2 left - next in 2024. — 5 days ago

Mt. Veeder Merlot 2015

Love the style- focuses on the varietal vs. making a “Cab lovers …” Black cherries and plumbs. Smooth earth. — 14 days ago
