1/20/2015 - NineteenEightyTwo Does not like this wine: 70 points

Opaque rosewood color. This is a big, oaky, vanilla-saturated fruit bomb on both the nose and the palate. I'm usually not too prissy about a wine being a bit "internationally" styled, but this is preposterous; the wine is totally unbalanced and aggressive. The palate tastes like jammy acetone, as though someone dumped a bottle of nail polish remover into a bucket of grape juice. My remaining two bottles will be "gifted" to people I loathe. Drink never.

    If you found this bottle to be corked, maybe it should be notated as "flawed"? Instead of "drunk" with a 70 rating? Just saying .....

A fine, delicious wine from Brick House. Deep, layered, complex flavors. Silky tannins, elegant flavors. Wonderful! (Steve loved this wine)

So it's best if you don't serve with heavy dishes, as with most pinots. Can use an hour air. As I mentioned tannins are silky, fine.

2008 Clonakilla Shiraz - Viognier

Canberra District Shiraz Blend, Syrah more

Spicy, floral notes. Bright, flavors of strawberries and dark fruits, earthy. Slight sweetness. Medium body. Tannins are integrating; can use a little more time to soften and mature. The spices and fruit combine into a mouth filling long finish. Very nicely done.
