Loves all types of wines with a focus on the Central Coast of CA.
A high alcohol fruit bomb. Blackberry, plum, raisin, currants, pencil lead, oak, medium plus tannins, and high acid. If wine were music, this would be heavy metal. — 5 days ago
Color is hazy, deep purple. The nose exhibits baked, dried, and stewed black fruit with some brett. On the plate the dark fruit shifts slightly sharper. High alcohol, moderate plus tannins and acid, with a round to lean texture. High alcohol and a long finish. A muscular wine that needs a protein pairing. Best to decant this vintage. — 3 days ago
Dried cherry, chocolate, slightly edgy, but well balanced. Oui oui. — 6 days ago

From the cooler side of the SLH, this pinot leans toward the burgundian spectrum, but with a bit more fruit and alcohol. A lovely garnet color with slight orange hues. A cherry nose with oak and cedar in the background. Cherry pie, ripe strawberry, spice, and rhubarb notes on the palate. Medium plus acid, medium plus alcohol, and medium tannins. Smooth and well balanced. A sensuous sipper. Jazz in a glass. — 4 days ago
