Warner Glen Estate Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Its crazy weather out there today and Erin wants me to clip the hedge at the side of the house. Its too windy and I just want to drink this and listen to Paul Weller. The Warner Glen Estate Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 has got cassis, mocha, acid, chewy tannins and is just a real drinkable wine on a day like this one -  a little warm hug in a bottle. And it's just $16!!!

Drink with left over roast beef and Paul Weller on the tunes
Drink till 2015

New beginnings

The left wall at 472 Lygon Street Brunswick East

Last Monday I signed a lease for 472 Lygon Street Brunswick East. This will be the home to my wine store, the Brunswick East Wine Store. It has been in the planning stage for over 3 years with this location in particular being the ideal location and a location I have been in negotiations since February this year. Now it is mine - trigger all kinds of emotions......

Castelli Frankland River Shiraz 2010

Its lean and tight. It has savoury and ironstone notes with plenty of spice tones too. Its simply fantastic. Its one of the wines of the year for me. Simple. Castelli Frankland River Shiraz 2010. Just get it.

Drink with beef short ribs
Drink till 2018
