    June 1, 2019 - Another Saturday at Chevalier...Mostly Blind Australian Wine (Chevalier Fine Wines - Chicago IL): Served double blind to the group alongside Amon-Ra 2004. Ripe black fruit with good weight that shows its age, but still retains enough fruit and freshness to be very tasty. Much less complex than the Amon-Ra. I liked this wine more when younger. Time to drink up.

    March 25, 2019 - Nicely developed & mature. Easy drinking but not showing much complexity. Held its own for 2 hours or so in the glass after a short decant.
    Hits the mark for wanting something w/ age but not needing to blow through something special.

    February 11, 2019 - After the fact so no detailed notes. Passed prime but certainly still drinkable

    January 30, 2019 - Frozen in the Polar Vortex (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Very dark purple/red color. PNP, drank 2 glasses over 3 hours. This was the last of four bottles purchased 9 years ago. This is drinking extremely well, still at peak I'd say and capable of maintaining for a couple years though I see no reason to push it much further. A delicious nose of blackberry, savory, roasted meat, cassis, and plum- no sign of eucalyptus on this. The palate is medium to medium full bodied, dried leaves, lots of glycerine, though no sign of heat from the 14.5 ABV, meaty, satiny texture, lots of dark fruits but not an over the top style of wine at all, gorgeous polished tannins and excellent length. Not any doubt where this comes from though I don't mean that in a bad way at all. I love the Glaetzer wines, they strike a balance of richness of fruit while maintaining acidity and freshness and good syrah character.
