  • 2002 Shingleback Shiraz D Block Reserve 90 Points

    Australia, South Australia, Fleurieu, McLaren Vale

    Deep ruby. The nose had wonderful aromas of raspberry, plum, pepper, abd vanilla. The palate was nice and smooth, with tastes of berry, spice, and vanilla. The tannins were solid and the finish long. A very good Shiraz, but a bit pricey.

  • 2001 Tormaresca Negroamaro Masseria Maìme Salento IGT 90 Points

    Italy, Puglia, Salento IGT

    Dark purple. What an interesting nose! Loads of blueberry, and blackberry, with hints of cat piss, and dirt. In the mouth were tastes of sweet berry, dirt, and oak. The tannins were solid, and the finish long and earthy. I liked this wine a lot more than my description would suggest. The aromas and tastes, though not sounding very tasty, were really good.
