Introduction

This was a nice tasting. A bit chaotic in the organization with expectations poorly managed. super funny as people started complaining that not all wines that were promised were served at the end as they completely lost sight of what great wines actually were served. I just sat in my little corner with a good friend and we enjoyed what we drank.

Flight 1 (4 Notes)

  • 2008 Constantia Glen Five 92 Points

    South Africa, Coastal Region, Constantia

    Turf, leather, forest floor, lots of espresso and vanilla notes, creamy and fairly rich, medium long finish

  • 2000 Château Pavie 91 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru

    Tasted double blind. This was surprisingly advanced and it felt more like a 95 or even a 1990. Camomille tea, wine gum, smoked bacon, long but not super long finish. Not impressed, sadly. Hope this was an off bottle.

    South Africa, Coastal Region, Tygerberg, Durbanville

    A bit restrained, caramel, cassis, nearly chile-like cassis, a bit rough, might turn around, but not excited about this

Flight 2 (2 Notes)

Flight 3 (3 Notes)

  • 2009 Eagles' Nest Shiraz 88 Points

    South Africa, Coastal Region, Constantia

    A tad restrained, very light style of Shiraz, cranberry and slight farmhouse smell. This has that biodynamic touch, even though I don't know if this is farmed biodynamically. Not my wine as it lacks a bit concentration to my taste

  • 2002 Bodega Noemia de Patagonia Malbec 89 Points

    Argentina, Patagonia, Río Negro

    A sweetness that feels slightly artificially added, herbal tea, watercress which could be what I usually get as dried hay from older malbecs. Medium length but a tad disjointed

    Tasted single blind in a series of 18 wines, now way to tell this was the Petrus. Chewing gum, banana a bit of oak whichis very well integrated. Nice length and a beautiful elegance.

  • 2010 De Toren Fusion V 90 Points

    South Africa, Coastal Region, Stellenbosch

    Blackberries, a hint of green bell peppers indicating not fully ripe cabernet other than that it has a nice sweetness and a typicial south africa espresso note. Good but not great

Flight 5 (3 Notes)

  • 1999 Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Ribera del Duero Único 93 Points

    Spain, Castilla y León, Ribera del Duero

    This was a clear Vega Sicila,as I had tasted some of them quite a lot recently and initially mistaken them often for mature bordeaux, but the hightened acidity and autumnal sweetness gave it away this time.

  • 1999 Château Mouton Rothschild 86 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac

    While there is a signature mouton graphite perfume, this has massive brett. Smells literally a bit like cow shit some other great bordeaux notes in there as well but you know, nothing mixes really well with cow shit if you are honest. Tasted blind and thought that it was a nice little 30 bucks bordeaux...

  • 2005 Clos Mogador Priorat 92 Points

    Spain, Catalunya, Priorat

    A hint of burnt rubber, figs, lots of dried figs actually with a hint if chamomile. Pretty good and true to its terroir.
