Santa Barbara County Grenache 2015

Highlight wine of the evening. Beautiful color. Cranberry and strawberry with perfect blend of light spices. A wonderful complement to the start of a surf and turf meal on the grill. — 22 days ago

Tribute

Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Very crisp and refreshing. I like my Sauv Blancs with a little more grapefruit; however this is a perfect wine to enjoy by the pool as my vacation slowly comes to an end. Back to work on Monday — 2 months ago

Estate Grown Grace Benoist Ranch Pinot Noir 2017

8.9

Nose opens with raspberry, ripe plum, cherry cola, cinnamon, then turns to dried mushroom, rose petals, and hint of game. The fruits tastes a bit more jammy than the nose suggested, but fresh acidity ensures a still vibrant palate.

Not as good as the 15’, but very solid.

Forgot to post from the recent Domain Serene visit. Another outstanding pinot. Single vineyard, with poise and stunning complexity. Approachable now, but needs to sleep for a while. I was ready to drop some plastic, until I heard $210 per… — 16 days ago

A bit pricey...

So historically, top notch CA/OR chard/pinot producers have been ruffly a third of the cost of equitable/comparable Frenchie Burgundy juice. How does this slot in or (k)not?

@Scott Rose, this is an outstanding pinot. It’s only fault is that it lacks brand recognition (which is no fault, really). But I’m a consumer just like the rest of the sheep, and for that price, I want dancing women, too 🕺🏾😲

Golden Ball

Beechworth Shiraz 2014

Been dying to try this. Continues my love affair with Beechworth Shiraz. Stunning wine, so elegant. Layers of restrained fruit and spice balanced with elegance and grace. So velvety!
I have another bottle which I will keep for 10 more years as this was a puppy.

Hofer Vineyard Grenache 2019

What can I say I love anything Angela makes, and the new Tribute to Grace tasting room in Los Alamos is a gem. My Dad declared this was his favorite wine ever and my mom is from nearby Cucamonga, so let’s just say everyone was happy. For that reason, wine of our trip out west after not seeing the folks for 18 months. As always, just incredibly elegant Grenache, light on its feet, but not without its nuanced power — a month ago

Wow. The KG “Molsheim.” Just a stunning nose of lime zest, white pepper, herbs, some complex citrus, herbs again but more pronounced. Just awesome palate. Amazing texture and grace. Such amazing spread on the palate. Nose now getting gingerbread, spice, pound cake, but the ginger is out of hand. Stunning. Deep, ripe, complex and concentrated. Seems a bit closed though initially and I know it has more to say. Finish is long and clings to the palate. Great acidity and it is caressing. Glorious purity and depth — 7 days ago
