  • 2016 Clonakilla Shiraz - Viognier

    Keeping in line with previous encounters, this is deceptively smooth, slowly revealing Asian spices and cool Shiraz fruit, displaying layer upon layer of restrained yet impressive aromatics. Judged on their own, Clonakilla wines can underwhelm, but next to others they tend to stand out, with impeccable balance and depth of flavours. This was no exception. Also, one of the few New World wines that work with classic haute cuisine.

  • 2015 Bodega Catena Zapata Nicolás Catena Zapata

    These used to be heavier, more one-dimensional, more crude. Still forceful, I now see less of the heavy hands and more of Alejandro Vigil. Smoky, heady nose with toasted oak and pitch black fruits, licquorice, pencils and lead shavings. A very attractive palate at this young age, a full bag of fruits, forest berries, cream, tobacco. Complex and multi-dimensional. This is very good. And it retains its freshness (it didn't use to), with a wonderfully clean fruity finish. Long. The value was ok before but now it's approaching a bargain. Great stuff.

  • 2012 Bodegas y Viñedos del Contino Rioja Contino Gran Reserva

    Tasted at the domain. Yes, it is more mature and more developed than the other specimens, but it still does not dominate the others. There is an abundance of toasted fruits and herbs on the grill, but it just doesn't possess the the power or purity of its peers. In the end, this is a great, individual, and different Rioja. But it suffered from the comparison to the other horses from the same stable. Great Rioja. Even greater peers.

    10/13/2015 1:16:00 AM - Hey, Timbalimba! We would love to learn more about Brazil wines. We have a bit of experience with Argentina and Chile. Brazil, with the exception of a few days several years ago, escapes us.
