Bordeaux worth the hype! The structure of this wine is what stole my heart, ripe, seductive tannins that compliment the delicious black fruit, violet, oak spice and graphite flavours. Great Bordeaux is never cheap but this wine overdelivers in the category. Drink now or hold for another 10-15 years. (2012 tasted 13 September 2018)

I've known Ployez-Jacquemart for more than 15 years--the wines have always been great. The current non-vintage EQ Brut is a classic citrus-apple, brioche and nuts, creamy, tittilating, lingering party in your mouth. Drink this wine. (non-vintage tasted 13 Sept 2018)

Walking the talk--a high production, expensive Napa Cab that delivers. Beautifully proportioned intense fruits, spicy rich oak, polished tannins and a promise of complexity. So easy to drink now but should age easily for another decade. A Napa wine that lives up to the hype. (2015 vintage tasted 13 Sept 2018)

Superb 'Super Tuscan' from the coastal region of Suvereto. 80% Cab Sauv, and 10% each of Cab Franc and Merlot aged 18 months in new and once-used French oak. Elegant and intense with deep black fruit flavours, integrated oak spice, and strong ripe tannins, this wine is beautifully poised for long-term aging--it still has youthful character at 7 years old! Tua Rita plays in the big leagues, and this wine proves they belong. (2011 tasted 13 Sept 2018)

Classic Provencal Rose! Pale salmon colour, delicate aromas of strawberry and dried roses, light sage notes on the palate, round mouthfeel on the mid-palate, and a fresh, slightly peppery, lightly gripping finish. The eel is more modestly displayed on the revised label for the 2017 vintage. Ideal for sipping, sashimi/sushi and beyond. Classic. (2017 tasted 14 August 2018)

White wine made from wild untrained red Pais grapes (the original S American variety brought by Spanish missionaries), some growing up trees! Low intervention wine-making in clay amphora--wild yeast, no filtration and low sulfites. The faintest rosy tinge; fresh pear, green apple and honeydew; dry, with tonic and citrus pith grip; juicy, lingering finish--great food wine. Feels like time travel! Be sure to check producer's website for details. (2017 tasted 9 Sept 2018)

Absolutely yummy, lively floral spicy 100% Aleatico fermented/aged in cement and stainless steel, with fresh grape/raspberry fruits and a long juicy finish. Unfiltered, it's a bit cloudy but will fall clear with standing the bottle--but no need to do so. Tempting to put a straw into the bottle, but a glass is better. Likely best now and for 1-2 years.

A stunning Cava in a beautiful package. Beautiful, small bubbles last forever in the glass and the red fruit flavors last forever in your mouth. I could still taste it 3 minutes after I finished it off. A great alternative to Rose Champagne.

Made from the somewhat unknown grape Pais. Freshly crushed strawberry aromas float out of the glass, followed by a hint of rose petals. A great change of pace from the Gamay grape. Try it chilled down for a 1/2 hour in the fridge.

Gary Hewitt added notes for Tahbilk Marsanne.
Great to see this Australian icon back--my notes on the 2010 state $20, so it's beating the rate of inflation! Bee's wax, lemon chiffon and honey with high acidity and a saline lick in the juicy finish. Ideal now but will likely fill out and mature with bottle age--drink now and consider putting a few aside in the cellar. Excellent. (2017 tasted 2 Sept 2018)
