Red Point Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

Damn, love this chard. Not what we expected from Sonoma - it’s light, fragrant, and elegant. Saw a review that said ‘lemon confit’ and that nailed it better than my lemon dessert takeaway. I could crush a lot of this.

A memory of a childhood lemonade stand.

Eagle Point Ranch Grenache 2015

Bee Hunter Wines Eagle Point Ranch Grenache 2015 Mendocino, California

A very pretty color of ruby with a very wide brick rim.

Interesting nose of blackberries, cedar, cooked cherries, raisins, figs, chocolates, sweet vanilla, cola, spices, mint and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with cooked cherries and strawberries, lemon peel, vanilla, light raisins, dried fruits, cedar, herbs, licorice, cola, chocolates, sweet vinaigrette, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Grenache from Mendocino County in California. Much lighter than I expected it to be, but it is so yummy.

This Single Vineyard is good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime, when it shows the complexity.

This six year old is peaking now, and drinking very nicely with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Alcohol is not showing at all, so watch out. Nicely balanced at this point. Easy drinking and tasty.

A great sipping wine, but good with food too. I paired it with Brie cheese and crackers.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Bear Point Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

There are big dark plums and dried figs with sensuous structure that covers your tongue in layers of depth and comfort.

It’s a big warm hug from someone you love. Not too hard or awkward, one you can be in for a long time.

Spice on the nose with blackberries. Lots leg. Slightly tart, with burst of cherry and spice. Would definitely get this again.

La Combe Verte Chardonnay 2019

Super reductive. Nutty, tight, flinty. Needs a long decant at this point. Day 2 turns into something quite special for the price point. Saltywaxy citrusy Oregon meets Chablis meets Jura. — 4 days ago

Shafer Vineyards

One Point Five Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Small winery, managed by Doug Shafer. Blend of 90% Cab Sauv, 7% Merlot & 3% Malbec, aged, 20 months, 100% new French oak. Beautiful fruit & floral aromas, hints of savory spice. On the palate cherry & raspberry flavors with oak structure adding pepper, licorice & cacao. Firm tannins, approachable now, long ending with fruit & mineral edge. Had this about 2+ years ago, nice now but more cellaring will only benefit this beauty, if you can resist the temptation. Very Nice! — 17 days ago

I don’t think I ever stopped in there. Now that things are opening up again, I think I will. Thanks!

Kennedy Point Vineyard

Waiheke Island Cabernet Sauvignon 2002


This is still thriving: elegantly styled Left Bank offering with bright beam of pure cherry & currant, cassis, along w/endearing secondary layers of earth, leather, herbaceousness, hint of pepper, tomato leaf and others... great complexity w/out being all over the place. Mid weight, mild tannins and great freshness. Impressive! — a month ago
