EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2019

On a hot almost-summer night this wine hits the spot! ☀️

It’s a Sauvignon Blanc from the Valle de Casablanca D.O. in Chile 🇨🇱 where the vines from which it hails receive cooling influences from the Pacific Ocean breezes, lending balance and preserving acidity. 🌊

It’s no wonder this wine is labeled EQ as in Equilibrio (the Spanish word for balance), because it offers a wonderful balance of ripe tropical fruit aromas and flavors with vibrant acidity and notable minerality. 🍍 🥭

The aromas and flavors are fresh, albeit ripe, generally tropical with passion fruit, guava, mango, underripe pineapple, also green apple, gooseberry, freshly cut grass, and wet slate.

It’s a perfect patio pairing and fun to explore the beauty of new world Sauvignon Blanc from this region.

It’s also a great value at $12.99. 👏👏👏👏👏

Matetic Vineyards, E.Q., Coastal Sauvignon Blanc, D.O. Valle de Casablanca, Viñedo Valle Hermoso, Chile. Vintage 2019. ABV 13.5%.

Arey Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

2019 vintage. Bâtard-Montrachet nose, Chablis Grand Cru finish. Thin, watery body and the mid-palate is definitely in a period of transformation but this wine is going (other) places and would love to revisit in a year. Mineral component and acidity are on point currently with that ethereal Santa Cruz Mountains terroir but expecting this wine to fatten up in the next twelve months. Fascinating. This producer is making some palate-challenging chards and pinots along with a solid red blend...all with low case production. This one is all of 130 cases and with a nice price. — a day ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

From a Ridge mini vertical at a friend’s house. 08, 07, 06. This 06 is by far the most evolved. Nose is sweet with ripe, almost prune-tinged fruit. I hesitate to say prune because it has a bad connotation but this is really good. And at its peak. Lots of sweet, old library notes. Still a lot of tannin, but the flavors are revolved so don’t wait for more tannin to drop. A real pleasure-giver. — 5 days ago

Kendric Vineyards

Marin County Viognier 2019

This is really nice. Classic Condrieu-like nose is floral (in a restrained way), and has pure but musky white fruits, along with just enough crushed rock minerality to keep it interesting. Mouthfilling but not heavy, it’s got fruit and nice acids and finishes dry and long. Me likee. — 3 days ago

San Valentino Sangiovese Blend 2015

Alex deftly decanted by glads with Vinturi Aerator. This rich blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Montepulciano fills the palette. Sour cherries, salty bacon, scraped leather, lasting finish. Paola Bea, a master of Umbrian wine! — 7 days ago

Trout Gulch Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Pale gold. Lemon, minerals, high acidity and bitterness level. Crisp, sinewy wine. Apple skin, green melon, paraffin, freshly cut green herbs. Many users say they find this Chablis-esque, and I can see that.

After a day in the fridge this is slightly richer and less restrained. Very nice wine.. 👍🏻
