    October 14, 2019 - Unchanged since my last note of three years ago. Remains primary. This wasn't supposed to be a subtle experience, and it is not....

    September 21, 2019 - Winebar [1 Rosé, 3 Whites, 8 Reds, & 6 *shared* bottles] from 09/20/19 (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): WHAT an *awesome* wine, Torben! THANK you sooooooo MUCH for sharing it! :)

    An unfiltered wine supposedly made from vines > 100 yrs old.

    N: FUNK which pretty much blows to RIPE berries & other unparsables; Intensity lurking

    p: LM, poss Med, body; VERY *nice*, ALMOST swtish frt met by an astringent/PUCKER which stays firmly in contact with the init frt as it SEAMLESSLY evolves into a VERY LONG, impeccably BALANCED finish with a delightful tangy/swtness (& notes of blk olives?) to the UNOFFENSIVE, yet firming, tannins. While it's tough to imagine this drinking BETTER, I'm guessing it could well approach its 20th. My Exceptional-/Exceptional (96-100/100 on that metric)! 17.5/20 Jancis Robinson, 89 RJonWine, + NUMEROUS other scores on wine-searcher's Tasting Notes pg (including a 99 from WA on 2/28/13)! [As of late Sept '19, wine-searcher still shows several sources from $100-$160].

    July 4, 2019 - Big Aussie Shiraz at its best. Agree will hold for years to come

    June 1, 2019 - Another Saturday at Chevalier...Mostly Blind Australian Wine (Chevalier Fine Wines - Chicago IL): Served double blind alongside the Glaetzer 2004. Dense, ripe and concentrated with layers of flavors and complex spicebox showing black pepper and licorice. Long, balanced finish. Very good, and this should hold well for 5-10 more years.

    (Glaetzer Shiraz Amon-Ra Barossa Valley) Black violet color; berry, blackberry nose; blackberry, black fruit, berry palate, lacking much of the fruit of its youth, but with no secondary flavors to take their place as yet; medium slightly hot finish
