2008 Penfolds Shiraz Bin 128

Coonawarra more

8/1/2015 - deanmillson Likes this wine: 90 points

Very dense inky red. Still some purple in the colour which is surprising. Doesn't look 7 years old. A fairly muted nose. Blackberry, pepper, even a little anise. The palate is quite dry and restrained. Not as much fruit as I would have expected. Dry with a long finish where some sweetness just starts to evolve near the end. Not sure whether this will get much better, but everything could integrated with time.

2008 Cristom Pinot Noir Mt. Jefferson Cuvée

Willamette Valley more

7/19/2015 - deanmillson Likes this wine: 90 points

Clear ruby red colour, a little purple at the rim. Quite a 'tart' nose, dark cherry, some peppery notes as well. Palate is clean, savoury, integrated but with quite astringent tannin. A little one dimensional perhaps. Will go on, but not sure there is much fruit left to support the softening of those tannins. Enjoyable none the less!

Not sure why but this bottle didn't enamour me like the last. Light straw colour. Similar nose to previous bottles, but the palate felt a little light on for body through the middle with the acidity feeling out of balance.

2006 Clonakilla Shiraz Hilltops

Garnet red. Certainly showing signs of age. Nose of wet gravel and dried fruit, earthy and not particularly appealing actually. Cherry, spice, light cool climate flavours. Long finish. Tasty but feels like I'm a couple of years too late.

Scoring from memory. Big, acid felt a little over the top. Needs lots more time i think.

Didn't take any notes, but this was rich, concentrated and very lush. Certainly a food wine.

Golden yellow. Orange peel, mineral apricot and stone fruit nose. Smooth attack, with a long long finish that starts in the mid palate and goes on forever. Right in its window now.

Unfortunately probably a few years past its best. The fruit had all but given away. Still quite acidic too actually. Enjoyable none the less.

Ink ruby red colour. Lots of black currant, with a little raspberry on the nose. Palate is medium bodied, and the fruits get darker and anise towards the end of a fairly long finish. The right amount of tannin and acid for a wine of this age. Tasty.

Clear dark Ruby red colour. The nose has lots going on - blackberry, cedar, licorice and pepper. Medium bodied, fresh young acid and a long anise finish. Enjoyable but will get better.

Bright clear red. Pronounced nose, wet stone, red and black fruits, a little spice as well. Rich palate, fills the mouth wide from beginning to end with a long finish full of balanced acid. Has lots to go on with, but fresh and delicious drinking now.

Inky red colour. Lots of cassis, leather, soft vanilla spice. Palate is wide and very long with dark fruit. A little acid in the length. Will go for quite a while with so much fruit.

Deep golden colour. Nose showing the complexities of age. Lemon cake, melon and creamy oak. A hint of something earthy as well like wet slate. The palate is full and rich, the acid all but gone leaving a long creamy finish. Drink up, don't think these are getting any better.

Straw colour, paler side of golden. Nose of bees wax, a little honey, lemon, a little mineral as well. Palate is very dry with a sweetness around the edges. Dryness gives way to a long sweeter finish than the beginning. Almost like there are two wines in there. Beautiful strange.

Deep brick red colour. Somewhat pronounced nose, floral and blueberries. Red and black fruit on the palate, fine pepper in the finish which is of medium length. Tannin has all but integrated, a little right at the end. Right in its window but probably has a few years yet.

2010 Sum of the Few Shiraz

Strathbogie Ranges more

1/22/2015 - deanmillson wrote: 95 points

Deep red colour. Complex nose. White pepper, flowers, and something almost ashen I can't quite put my finger on. Alcohol noticeable but it's not to much detriment. A really spicy palate, fine pepper around the fruit, really elegant and restrained. Lovely balance. Long finish that left my palate zinging. Really good stuff drinking really well now.

Inky red with a purple hue. Bright pronounced nose of cassis and violet. The palate is more of the same, with a fresh acidity that encapsulates the cassis and cherry through to a long finish. Will go on. The rest are going away for a while!

Colour is beginning to become a little more golden. The nose is bright citrus with kerosine, but the fruit seems to be coming to the front more as the gets older. Palate is lively lemon and lime, lovely tingly acid which also feels like its softening, becoming creamy. Will continue to hold.

2012 Woodlands Cabernet-Merlot

Margaret River Red Bordeaux Blend more

1/15/2015 - deanmillson Likes this wine: 94 points

A brightly hued wine at the moment, red moving to purple. Looks young, but not overly young. The nose is dry and spicy fruit. The palate is young ripe cassis, with very savoury drying tannin. It really fills the width of the mouth, with a medium to long finish that leave you smacking your tongue. It's savoury and chewy but in a really good way. It certainly needs some time down, but everything is delicately balanced for what i think is going to be a very impressive wine. Hold for as long as possible.

2010 Château Moulin de Bernat

Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend more

1/4/2015 - deanmillson Likes this wine: 89 points

Colour is a luminous cherry red, bright and clear. The nose is pronounced cassis and pepper spice, smells a little hot also. The palate is medium bodied and easy drinking, it fills the mouth nicely with more cassis. It is somewhat balanced, with a medium to long finish backed by fine tannin but it ends with too much acid for mine, possibly the alcohol? Drink now i think.

Clear pale moving to straw colour. Creamy citrus nose. Palate has good structure, dry, building to a long finish with an acid backbone that holds things together.
