2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

It's all in there. Plum, herbs, smoke, tannins, nice acidity, balance. Alcohol shines through a bit, and I miss the funky tones that earlier vintages could display. It feels very modern, don't know if that's the 2016 hype/favourable growing season shining through...

2014 Château Capbern St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend

Very attractive bordeaux, with fine earthy, smokey nose with cassis, but also fine dark berries from the high proportion of Merlot in the blend.
On the palate fresh, with young tannin. Perfect foodwine, but also delicious on it´s own.

2010 Penfolds Shiraz Bin 150 Marananga Barossa Valley

Still lobvely, rich and sweet blackberries, some vanilla and plum-sauce on the nose.
Full bodied, rich and smooth, clean dark fruits, but also balanced and long. Great with food and on it´s own, no hurry to drink up.

As Always a great version of this grape. All the fruit you want/need, but no sticky feeling, rather quite fresh. Great food wine, a must buy!

2008 Damilano Barolo Cannubi Nebbiolo

Beautiful barolo, with a complex nose of dried red berries, tar, roses, stone, some leather, licorice. Taste is long, balanced, full of red berries, cherrie, roses, tea, licorice. One to put into the cellar!

    7/27/15, 3:39 AM - I would wait, this was tasted from a bottle that been opened earlier at the winery shop in Barolo, hard to say what it´s like from a "new" bottle. I agree with you that ten years is a good time to wait for a high-class Barolo.

White - Sweet/Dessert
2008 Château d'Yquem Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Beautifully fresh d´Yquem, with medium botrytis, lots of ripe tropical fruits, honey, saffron, mineral. Taste is full bodied, sweet but with lovely balance and fantastic length.
