Blue Mountain

Okanagan Valley Pinot Gris 2020

The estate cuvee here... On the nose, paraffin wax and honeydew melon... On the palate, this gets into gooseberry and white peach. The finish is long white pepper. Quite nice and between this and the Reserve, among the best matches around for BC salmon in the summertime. — 20 days ago

Pestoni Family

Howell Mountain Merlot 2014

Rim to rim invariance of black cherry peel with smoky topaz highlights. Nearly Dense and dark as black coffee. Violets shine on a nose of plum , black currant jelly, blueberry-dark chocolate, roses with a tiny whiff of bovine, tilled soil, dried blackberries, and blueberry bran muffin. Graphite and licorice extract keep the fruity nose in check, and the burgeoning power of the palate rushes from the glass. Leather and oak frame the crushed, dried violet, in a grilled herbs de Provence, bing cherry, black cherry, and currant culmination!
What a finish. Lengthy resonance is finally whittled to a raspberry point.

Sinegal Estate

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Having this again after almost 2 years. Much more mature now. Big black fruit. Well integrated tannins that have softened up. Nice finish. Wine drinking really well now but another couple years will let it mellow a bit more. — 2 days ago

A big fan - celebrating some many things I don’t know where to start but I ran to exercise until my knees could not handle up to 2017 - quit running but kept drinking wine like I was running still lol - gained 60 pounds - decided last September enough - proud to announce I walk on average 14-15k steps a day - lost 53 pounds - don’t drink as much which sucks - but when I do I hope I drink amazing wines like this - stunning — a day ago

Dark fruit, Coffeebeans, dusty spice notes, toast, oak, smoke and vanilla, all balanced in a beautiful, hedonistic yet elegant and distinguished way.
Magnificant wine…

Howell Mountain Petite Sirah 2009

Lovely and consistent. Massive French influence with earth and barnyard smells. Medium depth and a rustic flavor. Dark fruit. Medium finish. Excellent QPR. Definitely my style. — 4 hours ago

Laurel Glen Vineyard

Sonoma Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Really blossomed after an hour open. Starts off with graphite and has lots of red cherry. Becomes well-integrated with bright acidity and a fruit punch sweetness. Crazy black pepper nose — 5 days ago
