Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Franc - Merlot Blend 2011

Strong earthy nose of oak bark and loam. Black cherry, blackberry and currant reduction, cinnamon sticks and clove inform the nose. Plums of red and black just underripe, tart cherry, dried raspberry, tarragon, rosemary, dried violets and graphite shimmers. Young and juicy, much more to give! .

Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Merlot Blend 2015

This merlot/cab franc blend from Washington’s Red Mountain AVA is a killer! Needs no less than an hour decant. Extraordinary. Potent. Depth and tenacity. Gorgeous nose, seductive, lingering, really well-crafted. Cheers! — a month ago

Santa Maria Valley Viognier 2019

This was my note from my last tasting of this: Bought this after tasting at the vineyards. I usually avoid non N. Rhone viognier like the plague (or Covid, too soon?). But this was excellent, and compelling enough to make me buy more than 1 btl. Notes from Day 2 open, and in the fridge overnight, and then in a refrigerated bag during a hike followed by a long car ride. On the nose: peach, tangerine, lychee, so vibrant and with a soft minerality. On the palate: excellent acidity, which is always the problem outside the Rhone, good density...sappy without being overly oily, fantastic minerality on the palate with a soft bitter walnut note. Excellent.

This time, perhaps a bit less minerality.

Glener Pinot Nero 2018

Fresh off the boat, showing a bit closed and demure right now but will certainly improve with time. I often recommend this wine for Burgundy fans on a weeknight budget and will continue to do so. — 4 days ago
