Bodegas El Nido

El Nido Jumilla Cabernet Sauvignon Monastrell 2017

76.8 acres of very old vaso trained Monatrell vines & 28.8 acres of 30 year old Cab Sauvignon. A blend of about 70% Cab Sauvignon & 30% Monastrell aged 2 years. Dark Ruby with big black berry flavors & complex spice. Rich ripe cherry & blackberry flavors with sweet vanilla spice, well balanced with acidity. Tannins are approachable but the wine is still very young, long finish ending with oak notes. Still needs time, don’t be tempted but if you wait this will be great! Tasting Sample! — 2 months ago

Sangiacomo Green Acres Carneros Chardonnay 2018

2018 vintage I’m March 2021 13.5% alcohol. Tight with a firm beam of acid crispness at first when cold. As it opened over an hour it gained roundness and some tropical fruit as well as good body. This will be a Really Good Wine in 2-3 years. Good value too. — 4 months ago

Definitely one of the better if not the best petite sirah. Could have aged more but drinks nicely now. Lighter and bright but not overly cherry. — 5 months ago

Müller-Catoir

Gimmeldingen Kabinett Riesling 2015

There are a few wines in the world that you can really never go wrong with. And by that I mean there are a few wine producers in the world whose every product is simply fantastic. For me, one of those is Müller-Catoir from Germany’s Pfalz region. Founded in 1744 this regal family estate makes fantastic wines across a wide range of prices from their roughly 60 acres of estate vineyards. This is a perfect examples, with its electric acidity and minerality encased in Asian pear, mandarin orange oil, and honeysuckle brightness. With just a whisper of sweetness it goes down so easy you blink and half the bottle is gone. Ding! — a month ago

Green Acres Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

A fun new discovery in Sonoma. This was an all in discovery at a tasting and the elegant approach is present across their Chards and Pinot. This Green Acre varietal is just special. — 3 months ago

Domaine du Collier

La Charpentrie Saumur Blanc Chenin Blanc 2011

9.4

Positively epic Chenin last night with dinner at @themorris_sf with some friends. Angled towards its mineral core, this wine offered citrus pith and unripe pear flavors with herbal overtones and a hint of flowers. A sappy membrillo note crept into the finish at the end but the pith and wet chalkboard minerality dominated with shimmering subtlety. A knockout from this tiny tiny producer working their 15 acres in Saumur to make 1200 cases per year. The wines are not racked, and have no added yeasts or sulfur, and are often aged for multiple years in the bottle. This particular bottling comes from 100+ year-old vines. — 3 months ago

Peju Province Winery

Napa Valley Merlot 2014

Tony and his wife Herta purchased 30 acres of land in the Napa Valley with the magic ingredient - location. With a splash of Malbec added, aromas of dark berry fruit and cigar box spice. On the palate flavors of black cherry and raspberry with cacao, licorice and herb notes. Fine tannins, nice acidity, good balance on long finish ending with fruit and cedar notes. Drinking well now! — 4 months ago
