2010 Domaine La Fourmone, Tu Tresor Poete, Vacqueyras, southern Rhone, France
Dull purple to brick red. Sweet spicy nose with blueberry fruit and liquorice. Soft medium bodied palate with nice richness, and flavours of blue and red berries, liquorice all sorts, mushroom, spice and good tannins. Easy and pleasant drinking. 89/100. Can keep for another 3-5+ years! but nice while young and fresh. Colour worries me for the long term.
2008 Kellermeister ‘Boots’ Dry Grown Shiraz, Barossa Valley, South Australia
Lovely bright purple colour with dark core. Pungent nose of vanillan oak, sweet red cherries and cocoa. Palate has lovely intense sweet red berried fruit with strong vanillan oak and hint of mocha. Good mouthfeel and nice finish with sweet tannins. Can certainly keep. Drink 2018-2025. 92/100.
