2005 Brancaia Maremma Toscana Ilatraia

SuperTuscan Blend more

3/30/2014 - fatsdmx wrote: NR

Ready. Delicious. Silky smoothy and rich. Sllightly bit of VA on the nose indicates to me that this might not get much better. Last bottle gone with braised short ribs.

2003 Concha y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Don Melchor

Puente Alto more

May be an off bottle but can't figure out why. Nose is full and expressive of cassis typical of cab sav. Palate is hollow and finishes very short and dry. Disappointing.

2003 Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Catena Alta

Mendoza more

Really enjoyed this. Pair very well with a simple bbq'd burger. Supple and complex. Everything is integrated and balanced, with the finish going on for a good 45 seconds. Enjoy.

Perhaps slightly corked. Just enough to linger and disappoint.

Sorry, not much of a "tasting" note: wow. Best Tig I have had. Modern style has developed through the years and I think this will get better with time.

Pinot Noir more

Time has been kind to this wine. Paired with cedar plank salmon, the ripe cherry and strawberry notes shine through. Very easy drinking with a long smooth finish. Close to outstanding.

Colour almost like tawny port. Seemed faded and old. Past its prime?

1999 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino

Sangiovese more

2/15/2012 - fatsdmx wrote: NR

This is showing very well. Certainly not past its peak. Smooth mouth-coating tannins and long finish. Maybe not typical in the traditional BdM style (nose is lacking violets) but a nice bottle.

2004 Elderton Cabernet Sauvignon Ashmead Single Vineyard

Barossa more

2/12/2012 - fatsdmx wrote: NR

Lots of sediment. Decanted and drank over 2 hours. A rich cabernet with ample plum. Tannins not overly noted, therefore integrated well. No oak. Drinking nicely but may improve further?

1992 Graham Porto Vintage Malvedos

Port Blend more

6/30/2011 - fatsdmx wrote: 90 points

Very disappointing nose of VA. Unexpected that this blew off (luckily I stuck around to taste it instead of dumping down the drain). What remained was very nice and enjoyable VP, seeming to still have years and layers remaining. No heat, not overly sweet for Graham. VA took about half hour to die off.

Disappointing tawny color lead to disappointing taste. Seemed oxidized with dusty notes. Off bottle? NR

Seemed ever so slightly corked (?) on the nose, and the oak was too prevalent.

1997 Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

Corvina Blend, Corvina more

4/9/2011 - fatsdmx wrote: 92 points

Dark and unfaded in color. Not losing anything since last bottle in 2009. In a very nice spot still with plush tannins, rich texture and long finish. Nice value in Amarone.

2000 Barone Ricasoli Casalferro Toscana IGT

Might have waited too long on this one. Last two bottles have been pruny and tired. Nothing showing through at all. Color is tawny and hints at slight oxidation. This was much better a few years back. NR

2001 Rosemount Estate Show Reserve GSM

McLaren Vale Red Rhone Blend more

12/26/2010 - fatsdmx wrote: 90 points

No indication of fading. Color, nose, and taste are still outstanding. An elegant style. A bit of strawberry starting to poke through at this time. Continues to be well balanced, smooth and highly enjoyable. Probably my best QPR ever.

A very nice surprise to find this bottle drinking well. Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Not overly complex, medium body, and a well made wine.

Balanced medium sweetness blends with very slight alcohol heat. Approx 30 second finish. Ready to go and good value.
