I had this on Saturday night and had really high expectations for it, always a bad idea right? Just as risky, I paid $15 bucks for a glass, knowing full well it retails for 30 bucks. Needless to say, I'd gladly pay $15 again if I see it on a wine list. Here why: true to the vintage this was a GREAT wine, amazing juiciness, matched by pitch perfect acidity and the most elegant tannins around at any price point. Gorgeous color, the prettiest darn thing. Cherries and spices against cedar. WOW. More please.
Love this wine, I first had it as part of a lecture. Needless to say I was very surprised to learn it retailed way under $20. Gorgeous bouquet, delicious. It's a steal.
An excellent Riesling. I first tried their wines, including thise one, at 2010's Wine & Spirits Top 100 event, it was one of only two New York wineries (the other was Hermann Wiemer). Nice people too.
Incredible wines. Extremely ageable and far better than many other high profile California wines at this price point and higher. I got lost trying to find the winery way out in Oregon House, but the line-up was worth the drive.
Another beauty from Clos Saron.
Zin and Cab? That's weird, no? However, this seemingly unnatural union is working for Paraduxx. Red blends are where I tend to find my favorite wines - think Bordeaux and the Rhone, and forget Pinot Noir exists for moment. This wine is supple, rich and goes on and on, and better still I have no issue opening it immediately, It's ready now. It's my - I desperately need an awesome wine for dinner tonight, not in 2015 - wine.
Just had this on Friday night (3/18). Peaking now! Richly colored with nice honey and apple cider notes. Delightful. Not nearly as decadent as other dessert wines, which made it an easy sipper and a perfect way to close the meal. The alcohol content is a mere 11%.
I didn't try this wine, but our North Carolina buyer came back from a tasting last week and announced this as the BEST Chenin EVER. Thereupon he immediately puchased this wine that very day for our wine.com customers. Thought you might like to know it made a big impression on Bill.
My mother in law's last name is Tait, so I crack up everytime I see this wine. It's quintessential Barossa, meaning it's decadent in all the best ways. Typically, these are high alcohol wines so I'd plan a savory meal of BBQ chicken or ribs before unscrewing this heavy duty beauty. Yum.
