Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé Grenache Blend 2019

Pre-Covid vintage; what have these grapes of wrath provided unto us mere mortals? Pink and gold, excellent clarity. Strawberries in nose and mouth, hints of peach, apple, pear and lemon flavor, mineral finish. Acidity is fine; this ain’t watery to my palate, just “lightly flavored”. If you want a fruit-forward red fruit dominant Rosé, this is not your wine. Its charm is it’s different. Good for sipping, but not a great food wine, I’d think — 7 days ago

Le Cigare Volant Grenache Blend 2019

Stunning, bright, fresh Grenache blend - a screaming deal at fifteen clams. Curious to see if this cuveé sans Mourvèdre has potential to age. — a month ago

Le Cigare Blanc 2020

The wine does indeed have quite the nose, with Meyer lemon, minerals and a fine salinity to its credit. The palate brings a saline sensibility to the stone fruit and minerality, and the mouthfeel is fairly hefty - especially for a white wine. The finish keeps the minerals in mind, with a hint of apricot — 5 months ago

Red berries mixed with cherries supported by structured tannins in a medium body. The finish is not lengthy, but who cares? This is a solid blend! — 7 days ago

Réserve Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé Grenache Blend 2016

Everything I want in a rose. Fruit, flower, mineral, in a word, springtime in the nose. Great flavor intensity but very light on its feet, just so compelling to drink. Love this. — 5 months ago

McHenry Vineyard

Swan Clone Pinot Noir 2017

This is my first experience with the 2017 Swan Clone, a wine that hasn’t been made since 2014. The wine pours a hazy garnet. Soaring aromatics on the nose. One can almost smell the red woods that surround this tiny 2 acre vineyard perched high up on Bonny Doon Road only a handful of miles from the Pacific Ocean. A beguiling combination of fresh, bruised red forest berries and pie crust. On the palate, very primary with a mix of red and dark fruits with some earth and a touch of baking spice. Medium tannin and high acid with a long, saline finish. The finish just goes. Even better with food, this is a wine with a long future. It’s always a treasure to drink the Pinot Noirs of McHenry. Only 48 cases made. — a month ago
