Rossi Vineyard Sonoma County Zinfandel 1993


Excellent old Zin! Balanced and still a bit of ripe fruits and lots of tertiary notes of forest floor and earth. Think just a bit lower than Optima. — 4 years ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

This is Bordeaux in classical optima forma. Blueberry, cassis, cedar, cigarbox, cloves, a bit greenish and pretty long finish. Nice match with venison pappardelle. — a year ago

Fitch Mountain Cellars

Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Year in, year out this is one of the more reliable values in California Cabernet. I think it’s sort of a second wine of Optima and I’m certain I’ve tried every vintage since 2001 because it rarely disappoints. I used to be able to swoop it for around $17 but it’s closer to $30 retail these days. Nevertheless, great QPR. Popped and poured; consumed over three days and best on Day 3. The 2017 pours deep ruby with an opaque core. The nose black currants, grilled kofta, purple flowers, baking spice and very light pyrazines…almost undetectable. On the palate, dark and red fruits, smoke and baking spice. Dry. Medium tannin; medium acid. Finish is medium…and savory. A totally respectable Tuesday night wine. — 3 years ago

De l'Orée Ermitage Blanc Marsanne 2004

Wow! This is hedonism in optima forma😋 rich, aged, a wide range of aged flavours with almonds, honey and ripe stewed yellow fruit. On the palate round, lush and very attractive, the right signs of ageing but what a wine. Love it — a year ago
