  • 1995 Roagna Barolo La Rocca e La Pira

    Aback of the cellar find. Still a bit stern and angular, but with good delineation of flavors. Austere, deep and brooding with tar, iodine, iron, and some balsam and a background floral component. Deep and more youthful than the last couple bottles. There isa cooler herbal lift on the back end. Quite long and more of a structured and imposing thinking experience more so than a passively enjoyable wine. Still quite good. 88 its

  • 1989 Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707

    Upright in the on deck circle for a while, opened and recorded in Am to check soundness in AM. Double decanted for sediment then decanted and drunk over 3 hours that evening.

    On the nose, stony fruit, plums, and some bitter chocolate, along with a dill- herbal background, and a touch of menthol. This is a large scaled, mature wine with outstanding balance, and an excellent mix of savory and fruit, with a leafy herbal back end that adds to the picture. At peak now and I doubt it will improve, but equally doubt it will fall off a cliff any time soon. This wine is in the slot now. Lovely 91

  • 1997 Tyrrell's Sémillon Vat 1

    The back up for the 97 Belford Reserve which was corked.

    Beautiful pure clean nose of lemon, lanolin, and with an almost bottomless sense of stoniness. It doesn't really get any honey yet for me, but what impresses me here is the focus and weightless power. There is a great juxtaposition of acidity which is plenty to the density of flavor and texture without heaviness. Bright, clean, pure, deep and mouthwatering. Drinking beautifully now. I still am confused why I don't cellar some of this wine every year. Idiosyncratic and maybe I just have a soft spot of this wine, but for me, Hunter Semiilon when done well is world class wine. Terribly interesting, thought provoking, and enjoyable. 93
