Odds & Ends IX

Not enough time to write full notes, so here are a few thoughts on a few wines:

  • Yalumba Signature Cabernet Shiraz 2005: already reviewed this here. Still looking very good
  • Lake’s Folly Cabernet Sauvignon 2002: didn’t do much for me. Dry and oddly flavoured.
  • Crittenden Los Hermanos Homenaje a Cataluna 2009: very tasty. Good value for < $20
  • Domaine de Saint Cosme Gigondas 2001: showing some oxidisation, just drinkable
  • Louis Roederer Brut 375ml nv: very tidy
  • Penfolds St.Henri Claret 1991: still young at 20 years old, pretty good
  • Fontanafredda Barolo Serralunga d’Alba 2000: some brown hints… something not right but okay for what it was
  • Domaine David Clark Vosne-Romanee 2008: quite simple and almost Beaujolais like. Wasn’t expecting it to be like this
  • G.Roumier Chambolle-Musigny 2005: solid. Not over ripe
  • Leo Buring Leonay Riesling DW116 1979: Hanging in there
  • Meerea Park “Terracotta” Shiraz 2009: bloody good. Looking a bit oaky now, but beautiful fruit concentration
  • Tyrrell’s Vat 9 Shiraz 1999: drinking well. A touch too leathery
  • Wynns The Gables Cabernet Shiraz 2008: Simple and a bit sweet.

There were a few others on a rather big Saturday night, but the details are sketchy: a small glass of Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne that was okay, and a Roda I (I didn’t note the vintage) that was very smooth, and also a swag of German Goldkapsel that were delicious (thanks Andrew!)

    What were the details?

    The Roda 1 was the 01.
    There was also an 01 Castelgiocondo Brunello which was very tasty.
    The Schaefer Frohlich Auslese was Hugh’s. Normally a tasty wine but it came out at room temperature for some reason.
    The others were 06 Dr Loosen Erdener Pralat Auslese Goldkapsels. Only Loosen wines I’ll buy, and they aren’t fair value like they used to be.

  5. Clark Vosne sounds odd. Can’t exactly afford to crack another one to check though!
