De Trafford - Shiraz
Showing its age on the rim. Took a bit for the aromatics to develop, but once they did, it was all smoke, dark fruits, and eucalyptus. Same notes followed through on the chalky palate. Seems to have some life left, but drinking quite well now!
Castiglioni - Toscana Rosso
Full of cherry and tobacco notes, with good dusty tannic backbone. Typical nice Tuscan acid structure, fairly long finish. Drinks well now, but should have another couple years ahead of it.
SA Prum - Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese
Deep golden color gained during its 8-year nap. Rich, luscious, and honeyed. Long-lasting candied apricot flavors with balancing hints of slatey minerality nicely interwoven. This one has a long life ahead of it. Glad we have more!
Caro - Caro
Cedar and plum aromas follow through to the palate, woven with touch of crushed leaf/forest floor notes. Well structured, still has some time, but really singing right now.
Hirsch - Chardonnay
Great tropical fruit notes on nose/palate. Tangy acidity and well integrated oak backbone made this a real treat. Very Burgundian. Pleased to see because the last bottle we had of this vintage was tired.
