McMahons Annual Christmas Open House Brings A Vintage Wine Tasting

Neal McMahon Australia, France, New World, Rhone, Wine Tastings

Our annual Christmas Open House of course brings out some vintage wines from my cellar. On Sat Dec 15th we will be opening up a slew of wines staring back in the mid 1990s through to 2013. I will post ratings and thoughts once the tastings are complete. 

Pièce de résistance of the night was a forgotten about bottle of 2001 Marquis Phillips Integrity Shiraz. Total mind blowing wine in 2018.

The wine 100% Shiraz had a beautiful inky/deep purple color with a still great smell of blackberries on the nose. This was a beautiful well balanced wine with soft sweet tannins. One of the best wines I have ever tasted.
Robert Parker rated this wine a 99
worth finding a bottle if you can find one.
Glad i could share it with a couple friends.
