  • 2007 Uitkyk Shiraz Special Reserve – South Africa, Coastal Region, Stellenbosch, Simonsberg-Stellenbosch (3/3/2019)
    WIML93

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Lovely nose of boysenberries, violets, plums and a hint of cassis. Full flavors of boysenberries, loganberries and plums. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink now. I cannot imagine this wine getting any better than it is at this moment. NOTE: the provenance on this bottle was impeccable. We purchased this in the tasting room and flew it back home with us and immediately into our temperature and humidity controlled cellar. (93 points)

  • 2006 Betts & Scholl Shiraz Black Betty – Australia, South Australia, Barossa, Barossa Valley (2/6/2019)
    WIMLNR

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose was a bit vegetal with some roasted meat and a hint of black fruit. Flavors or mint, berries and raspberries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, medium bodied. Drink now. Couldn’t make up my mind if it was over the hill, subjected to poor provenance or simply not that good so no rating.
