Penfolds Grange 2012 750mlColor: Dense and imposing. Dark... RED! Nose: Unmistakably, it is what it is. In a word, Grange. (Almost) all unleashed immediately upon the first splash into the glass - exuberant, lifted, flamboyant. An aromatic 'multi-cultural' chromatogram brazenly unfolds: First, enticing barrel ferment formics and balsamics, spliced with soy, tomato puree, black olive and liquorice (Dutch?). Then, the exotics - wafts of tiramisu/mascarpone/zabaglione (Italy?), replete with freshly roasted hazelnut and ground coffee beans (Kenya?) 30 seconds later... Palate: Fresh and refined. Nervy. Red liquorice, gravy reduction flavours and black olive tapenade to the fore. And then, just so much more! Where to start? Compelling depth - weighty/voluminous/fleshy - structurally complete and even throughout. A radiant inner sheen, yet still assertive - a film encrusted with dusty, softened tannins that coat tongue. Great length. A loss of innocence, as sculptured oak (purity/clean) and a boundless array of red fruits, congeal into a darkened pool of (un)known and (un)savoury delights! Unashamedly and quite blatantly THE wine of this year's Penfolds 2016 new releases! Enough said.
Penfolds Grange 2013 750mlColor: Opaque black core, dark red rim. Nose: An aromatic assault / surge / eruption of soy, hoisin, balsamic reduction ... coiled around a core of kirsch and fresh raspberry. This propulsion is crammed with tell-tale barrel ferment, V.A. and formic Grange markers - all in balance, all respectful of fruit and oak. And yet, so 'classy' - a brightness, a sheen, a gloss, a raciness - belying both age and upbringing (élevage).
Château Smith Haut Lafitte Pessac-Léognan Gran Cru Classe 2016 750ml
Opus One Napa Valley Red 2016 750mlThe Opus One 2016 is remarkably elegant and bright offering sumptuous aromas of fresh red and blue fruit, baking spices and vanilla, and a delicate fragrance of spring florals. The initial bouquet is augmented by more nuanced notes of sage, rosemary, and black olive. Juicy flavors of black cherry, blackberry and cassis flood the palate and creamy, fine-grained tannins deliver a delightfully round structure. Harmonious and lively, the flavors linger to create an enduring finish with touches of dark chocolate and espresso.
Penfolds Grange 2014 750mlDeep plush garnet throughout from core to rim. Quite simply, an unmistakable youthful 'Grange' nose. Awakened primary fruits and stylish oak interlocked and indistinguishable. As expected. Savoury, not fruity. Tastes flavours remind of slow cooked beef ragout, chicken liver game terrine. Red liquorice also apparent. Integrated oak - spicy, almost 'non-American' oak ... but it is. As it always is. A core of 100% new Quercus alba. Poised yet powerful. A balanced, tightly-knit and woven structural 'tapestry'. Not to be constrained by dimension or frame. Tannins with attitude! Nonetheless respectful. Type? Slatey tannins ... alluvial, silty (certainly not muddy!). Long and lingering - tactile impressions indistinguishably and slowly fuse/merge into an aftertaste memory. Until the next sip!
Penfolds Grange Vertical 3 Pack 2012/2013/2014 2012 3 pack 750mlThe original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy, Grange is arguably Australia's most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Crafted utilizing fully-ripe, intensely-flavored and structured Shiraz grapes, the result is a unique Australian style that is now recognized as one of the most consistent of the world’s great wines. With an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951, Grange clearly demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia. GRANGE 2012 - "Complete. Stylistically, most closely aligned to the 1963 Grange and yet stridently extolling its personality. I can’t quite remember when or where… and probably not about wine, but recently scribed: Luxury that treads lightly!" -PETER GAGO, PENFOLDS CHIEF WINEMAKER GRANGE 2013 - "Undoubtedly will soon be universally proclaimed to be a classic 'Penfolds vintage' … and indeed over time certified a classic ‘Grange vintage’! Not unlike the 2008 Grange – á la style / weight / disposition / cellarability. Sensorially supersaturated, verging on overwhelmingly generous. Beware - superlatives abound. No matter, despite the chatter, a seriously very good drink! Indulge without guilt." - PETER GAGO, PENFOLDS CHIEF WINEMAKER
Lamborn Family Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage XIV 2016 750ml"Rich and fragrant notes of blueberry and blackberry permeate the glass, accentuated by light mocha and vanilla undertones. The palate is greeted with deeply rich blue and black fruits, a whisper of tart cherry, and superseded by a dense and chewy lingering mouthfeel from front to back. The medium toast French oak accompanies the ‘Howell Mountain dust’ and moderate silky tannins. An enchanting mountaintop Cabernet, this lavish and elegant wine well-represents the remarkable Lamborn vineyard." - Heidi Barrett, winemaker (Screaming Eagle Wine Maker ) The near-perfect 2016 growing season started early, saw ideal weather conditions throughout, and wrapped up as the Valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October 14th. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August, followed by a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness. Wines from the 2016 vintage are developing beautifully and vintners are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift Mother Nature has given us: a fifth consecutive vintage of stellar quality Napa Valley wines. We hope you enjoy our 14th vintage of Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon ! 100% estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon
Bevan Ontogeny Propietary Red 2017 750ml
Bevan McGah Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 750mlThe McGah is the livelier of the two, with more vibrant flavors and a finish that seems to go on for minutes. I have opened them up side by side, three times and have yet to be able to pick out a favorite. Seductress or Minx? Refinement or hair pulling? It comes down to your mood and how you want to dance. Ballroom or disco?
Lail Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750mlAppearance: Deep ruby with purple edges. Aroma: Exotic of black cherry, plum, cassis and dark chocolate. Echoing the aromas, spicy flavors of blackberry, mint and boysenberry add further intrigue and complexity. Flavor: It is creamy, rich, lush and simply delicious.
Fiftyrow Alice Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750mlAnother 95 pt. plus vintage and the great fruit from the Alice Block has produced a 2016 Cabernet that is our best to date. It has the typical expression of the area and is instantly recognized with its distinctive Rutherford dust. Deep garnet in color with aromas of jammy blackberries and opulent dark plum while oak influences of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove round up the nose. The palate is supple, lush and voluptuous with flavors of black currant, tobacco, plum and dark chocolate, concluding with a lengthy, fruity finish
Sinegal Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750mlThe 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits elegant aromas of ripe raspberry, plumb and black cherry, with notes of rose petal, cinnamon and all spice. The subtle oak spice tones are well integrated with the fruit and floral aromas in this wine. On the palate there is a silky texture with smooth tannins and long lingering finish. Flavors of candied cherries, and blackberry kirsch are intermixed with secondary notes of vanilla bean, mocha and coca nibs. The 2017 is showing well at a young age, however the wine has a nice tannin structure to age gracefully for the next 7-10 years.
Maybach Family Vineyards Materium 2016 750mlAroma: The multifaceted aromatics suggest cigar box, boysenberry, tack-room and violet oil. Flavor: The completely saturating mouthfeel resonates with notes of black tea, brambly black fruit, allspice and crushed rock. The finely integrated tannins provide a pleasing structure for the lengthy finish, which fleshes out for nearly a minute after tasting. This wine possesses robust flavors, aromas and just the right amount of structure, allowing it to drink well now and age in the cellar over the next 10+ years.
Maybach Family Vineyards Amoenus 2016 750mlThe aromas from this deep purple wine will command your attention even with the glass an arm's length away. The round, enveloping harmony of the aromas resonate with classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon highlights: dark fruit, exotic spice, aromatic wood, and ethereal floral notes. The palate experience is precise, layered and drawn out, well after consuming the first taste. Notes of crushed blackberries, clover oil, spearmint and cocoa nibs are expressed seamlessly in the glass. As with many exceptional creations, there is a quality that leaves you immediately wanting more, while also wanting to take time to reflect on the initial experience.
Peter Michael Mon Plaisir Chardonnay 2017 750mlTrue to its name, the wine is indeed a pleasure: intense and perfumed. The 2017 Mon Plaisir displays an exquisite bouquet of candied fruit, orange, lemon cream, fresh butter, grapefruit and a flint-like minerality, with subtle notes of greengage. The palate is rich, full-bodied and creamy with beautiful hints of fresh lemon, pear, apple and brioche. A mineral character with hints of pain grillé and almond complete the mouth feel of this wine and its long finish. Enjoyable now, it will age for a decade or more.
Scarlett Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750mlUnbelievable complexity and layers intermingle with aromas of berry compote, cassis with a black cherry core that jumps from the glass. The mid palate is a silky flow of abundant blue and black fruits, followed with an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel. The integrated structure and polished tannins carry through to a detailed and long finish.
