Mount Veeder Winery

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This evening the wine of choice is the 2018 Mount Veeder Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The blend is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec.

The nose gives us notes of black cherry, blackberry, black raspberry, plum sauce, spice, vegetal notes, green bell pepper, black pepper and violets.

On the palate there are sumptuous notes of black cherries, blackberries, black currant, vegetal notes, black pepper, green bell pepper and a nice earthy component.

The wine is medium to full bodied with medium to medium + acidity and medium+ grippy fine grain tannins which moves subtly into a long black fruit, black currant finish. A lovely wine that is not overly hard on the pocket book. What a way to start the week. The week ahead looks bright. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

The McRae Wood Shiraz 2014

I have never been a fan of Australian Shiraz and much prefer Rhône Shiraz, but this Shiraz is paradigmatic of the Australian style. The wine is fruit-forward and extremely flavorful, beginning with berries and ending with a long finish. If you are looking for a beautiful wine with this kind of fruitiness, this wine is the wine to buy. — 4 days ago

Crisp, clean and floral. This tasting is good, but showing a shade too much oak treatment. Otherwise, well done. — 12 days ago

Mount Edward

TED Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018

Mount Edward is in the prestigious address of Felton Road Bannockburn although the grapes for this wine also come from other sub districts. This has a lovely Central Otago perfume showing dark cherry, raspberry, white pepper, thyme and red florals. A lovely nose. The palate doesn’t quite deliver following the nose. Very good for a 2nd wine just without the concentration on the palate. Given to me as a gift from a mate whose name is Ted. Wonderful graphics on the label I thought. — 13 days ago

Wendouree

AP Birks Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Wendouree - the over riding descriptors tend to be the menthol/moth balls/eucalyptus notes, almost regardless of grape type. Medium to full bodied. Great balance - so much so it would be difficult to assess the age at nearly 20 years. Herbal and medicinal notes. A wonderful old Australian Cabernet from ancient vines. The prodigious length of this wine belies the medium weight on the palate. — 21 days ago

@Severn Goodwin Could be difficult to find outside of Australia when there is so much demand for it within this country. A waiting list for the Cellar Door mail outs etc.

I've found a few offers, but most are north of $300 USD.

That’s certainly profiteering when the cellar door pricing is in the $55 to $80 AUD mark. Big box retailers like Dan Murphy’s generally treble that if they get their hands on any.
