Wallula Vineyard Mourvedre 2015

Dense dark purple-red, highly extracted. Weedy minty buttery notes in nose. Blackberry, cherry and eucalyptus flavors initially , slightly hot, cherry cough syrup finish. Bitter aftertaste, moderate astringency. Flavors integrate and tannins soften somewhat after an hour - cherry, blueberry and blackberry flavors with length and a hint of mint-eucalyptus and black currant, with the tactile sensation of black pepper on the finish. Give this one an hour’s decanting before enjoying, a joy of a wine, well balanced and easy drinking, not remotely overripe but on point varietally in its expressive flavor profile. Plum flavors eventually emerge 2-3 hours after opening. — 13 days ago

Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay 2016

9.2

Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee. Incredible hosting by Joe. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine, all tasted blind.

Bonus wines. My first time having this from Shafer, and it’s very down the middle. Epitomizes Cali chard. It’s not overly oaked, but certainly kissed by some. A crowd pleaser. Little bit of marzipan, lemon bar pastries and honey butter.

Ridge Vineyards

Pagani Ranch Sonoma Valley Zinfandel Blend 2014

2014 vintage. Super elegant manifestation of Zinfandel, but with just the right rustic edge. Dark mullberry, black plum, cedar, black cherry, blackberry, black pepper, dried herbs, clove, bay leaf, a little smokiness. Not nearly as jammy as when I tasted it last year during a supplier visit. 80 Zinfandel, 17 Alicante Bouschet, 3 Petite Sirah. Don't ever change your labels, Ridge! — 2 days ago

Drank 11/25/18. Tasting pour

Nose of pear, apple, apricot, and some vanilla. Rich palate with apple, minerality, and some buttery notes. Clean, medium finish.

Quivet Cellars

Kenefick Ranch Syrah 2013

My Quivet syrahs don’t usually make it long enough to have this kind of bottle age, but I may need to hold a few back going forward. Tremendous effort here and an easy 3-5 years ahead of it. — 15 days ago

Quilceda Creek

Palengat Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Nice wine. Getting a hint of raisin already but still a lot of complexity to it still. Decanted. Thinking we should drink our other bottles soon. Changing my rating, this really opened up after about 3 hours of decanting. Lots of tobacco notes. Nice wine. — 3 months ago
