    Same ratio on CH Brookman Merlot 2012. 4 wonderful. 2 down the drain corked. Textbook TCA. No complaints though, still works out to be a great DM deal.

    Joining the ranks of believers. Received 2012. Spellbinding wine, albeit it needed ~2 hours to open up, just like reported. Many thanks, olympicwiz, exceptional deal.

    Good to see you back, qaz. That and perhaps because they have just had a refurbishment and may be settling into a new stocklist.

    I can help you w Block 5, but not the other two as I didn't get any Proprietor or Ironrock. I thought Block 5 was exceptional. Besides the regular Cab characteristics of lovely cassis and cigar box, its two main distinguishing features r concentration and Lapsang Souchong tea flavour (i.e...

    As requested, Wickad. Early reports: 1. Austins - thumbs up. But need to like whole bunch characters - cloves, beetroot. Lovely Pinot. 2. Miceli - for all the mixed reviews, it appeals to my dinosaur taste in Chardonnay. Lots of stewed stone fruit and oak. 3. Jellicoe - needs a good sleep...

    My gratitude, Wickad (albeit via Ozbargain). Tasted Forest Hill Block 5 several times at Prince Wines Store and thought it was excellent. Never expected to be able to get it at <$15. Not so lucky with Block 8 Chardonnay which is also an exceptional drop. Hope someone here got some.
