2010 Osoyoos-Larose - Le Grand Vin

(Tasted Aug 12, 2015)

2010 Philip Togni - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon impresses for its length and total class. Mocha, game, smoke, graphite and plums are all supported by veins of cool, insistent minerality. This isn't a blockbuster Cabernet, rather it is a wine that impresses for its finesse and precision. Sweet red cherries, mint, pencil shavings and violets are some of the notes that are layered into the super-refined finish. As always, Togni's Cabernet Sauvignon is distinguished for an extraordinary bouquet that recalls some of the great wines of the Medoc and the structure to age gracefully for years. It will be interesting to see if the 2010 blossoms in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040. Score - 95+. (Antonio Galloni, erobertparker.com, Dec. 2012)

2012 Jim Barry - Shiraz The Lodge Hill
Vivid purple-crimson; a totally delicious wine with a spring in its step more frequently encountered in cool climate shiraz; its fruit flavours span blood plum, red cherry and mulberry, these complexed by spice and garden herbs, the tannins fine and supple. Great value. Drink [until] 2027. Score - 95. (James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, July 26, 2014)
