2005 Tapanappa Cabernet-Shiraz Whalebone Vineyard

Wrattonbully Cabernet-Shiraz Blend, Red Blend more

5/20/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 91 points

A well-made complex and still youthful Cabernet-Shiraz blend with elegant dark blackberry fruit, Bordeaux style with menthol notes, well integrated quality oak, good acidity, soft tannins. Really lovely for drinking now. Btw: Great website from the producer where the terroir of the vineyard is explained in detail. Very interesting. - 91 points

2005 Bodegas Muga Rioja Reserva Selección Especial

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

5/20/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 90 points

A good bottle of Rioja Reserva, but not a great one. More classy than the El Puntido from the same vintage, a mix of red and black fruits, very nice oak touch, just a bit short and not very complex. Good now but should hold a few more years. -90 points

2005 Château d'Aurilhac

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/20/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 88 points

Great week-day Bordeaux with classy Bordeaux flavors of black cherries and cassis, slightly funky horse sweat notes and fine cedar and tar flavors, balanced acidity and tannins that have lost most but not all grip yet. Drinking well now. - 88 points

2005 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

Sangiovese more

5/20/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 88 points

This wine did not get us excited at all, agressively acidic, some oak tannin and lots of cherry fruit with a bit of plum. Not very nice without food. Not my preferred style of wine. - 88 points

2005 Viñedos de Páganos Rioja El Puntido

Tempranillo more

5/20/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 91 points

High quality wine, modern style, dark blackberry fruit, herbs and garrigue notes, spicy, elegant oak and silky tannins. The only thing that is bothering with this bottle is some unpleasant oxidation. Well-made wine, but its has nothing to do with classic Rioja. - 91 points

Lovely fresh wine with bright acidity, mineral notes and fresh cherry fruit. Well-balanced though a hint of oak still seems not very well integrated. Tasted blind almost everyone guessed this to be a Sangiovese. Drinking well now. Glas stopper. - 90 points

2012 Weingut Willi Bründlmayer Chardonnay

Kamptal more

5/19/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 90 points

Sweet apple fruit, slightly creamy and with ripe acidity, but also mineral and light despite having rich fruit. A gentle oak treatment emphasizes the fruit. Easy to like wine, almost sexy but more complex than it seems at first. - 90 points

2008 Weingut Familie Prieler Blaufränkisch Leithaberg

more

5/13/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 90 points

Great bottle of Blaufränkisch, the 2008 vintage currently drinks much better than the 2006. Dark blackberry fruit, fine acidity and soft tannins, no oak covering the subtleties of the wine, the chalky terroir adds a touch of lightness to a complex and elegant wine. Lovely food wine. - 90 points

2011 Alois Kracher Cuvée Beerenauslese

Neusiedlersee White Blend more

5/15/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 89 points

Not as rich or complex as Kracher's Trockenbeerenauslesen, but this is a well-balanced sweet wine, with honey and orange peel notes and a fresh balancing acidity. Likely to improve with a bit of bottle age, but also delicious now. - 89 points

2008 Prager Riesling Smaragd Klaus

Wachau more

5/6/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 91 points

A big and powerful Riesling. Dark golden color - clearly some oxidation, complex one the palate with stonefruits, petrol flavors typical of aged Riesling, some botrytis influence with notes of oranges and honey, more so than usual with Prager wines, but then 2008 was a huge Botrytis year in the Wachau, no sweetness and great balancing acidity. A very golden and ripe style of Riesling, not usually my preffered style but this is really excellent. - 91 points

Pure, silky, spicy, fresh and elegant. Wonderful expression of Blaufränkisch, nothing forced or heavy or overextracted, nothing modern, just pure fruit and terroir. Not the most complex wine, but delicious and wonderful with food. Not a wine for the cellar though. - 90 points

Chemical UHU glue smell; better on the palate with fresh red fruits, crisp acidity, gentle oak and vanilla, not a wine of depth or complexity, but well-done for the vintage. Easy-drinking wine. Drink now. There have been better vintages of this wine in the past years. - 88 points

A very good vintage of Brindlbach, rich and sweet tropical fruit mixing with apple flavors, great acidity, slightly creamy mouthfeel. An archetypal Rotgipfler at a very fair price. - 88 points

Very ripe Sauvignon blanc with flavors that are more golden then green; so more hay than grass, herbal with dried chamomile, even a hint of licorice, intense and with great length, well-balanced, but not made in a classy fresh Sauvignon blanc style. I like it. - 91 points

A smooth medium bodied wine with a nice mix of blackberries and fresh red fruits. Very mineral, salty and chalky, high acidity and easy drinking style with soft texture. Would have hoped for a little more weight and prefer wine with less acidity, but I still like it. Best with food. Good now. Glas stopper. - 89 points

2009 Château Paloumey

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend more

4/11/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 88 points

Another cru bourgeois from 2009 that does not dissapoint. Classy Bordeaux fruit of cassis and cherries, moderately tannic, gentle extraction, gentle acidity, chocolate and vanilla flavors, fruit forward and what I like: not too much oak (both in flavor and tannins). Easy drinking and accessible now. Well done, but lacks the complexity and elegance of a great wine. - 88 points

Like many Austrian red wines from 2008 this drinking very well now, silky tannins, lots of power and alcohol (certainly not a summer drink!), suprisingly good weight for the vintage, ripe dark fruits, not a lot of acidity and lots of dark chocolate on the finish. Easy drinking and top quality. - 90 points
