2009 Dandelion Vineyards Shiraz Red Queen of the Eden Valley

more

5/26/2015 - danielbleier Likes this wine: 91 points

Sour cherry, raspberry, wet stone, and a sweet spice finish. Not a fruit bomb, but certainly fruit forward and ready to go. Would have rated a point or 2 more had the nose been more distinctive.

very lean, with cherry and cedar notes, held tight with firm acidity. Needs to pair with food to best express itself.

dark cherry, mint, and clove - not much acidity or minerality - should be consumed sooner than later.

consistent with notes of 10/8/2013...this wine's only fault may be that it is too smooth, too polished.

2009 Donum Pinot Noir East Slope Carneros

more

5/24/2015 - danielbleier Likes this wine: 95 points

Super rich and lush - huge floral nose, augmented with herb and tar. When tasted, rich plum and cherry notes are added - finishes smooth and fine - almost delicate. So starts of a lion and finishes a lamb.

2009 Epoch Estate Wines Authenticity Paderewski Vineyard

Paso Robles Red Rhone Blend more

5/23/2015 - danielbleier Likes this wine: 94 points

Perhaps the best bottle of Epoch I have had. Lovely floral nose, and a wide open palate of red and black berry with sweet spice and a touch of herb on the finish. Still youthful, but with none of the heat that I sometime get with Epoch which requires a long decant. 5-7 years left on this, I would think.

Dense and rich, with dark fruit and sweet spice. Does not come across as hot or raisinated - fairly nimble, in fact.

Fennel and mint on the nose, black fruit and coffee notes when tasted. A huge wine, as you must expect, but not an overwhelming fruit bomb.

This was noticeably richer than the other Ramonet...apple was baked and spiced, lots of creamy vanilla, with a long, wet stone finish

Better than expected, given the rep of the vintage. Plenty of forest floor and herb balanced with dark cherry. Worth the spend.

Best burgundy of the night, IMHO. Blend of orange rind and almond on the nose, with citrus, apple and pineapple notes when tasted. Very creamy - but enough acidity to provide a lingering finish.
