Linne Calodo

Problem Child Zinfandel Blend 2016

Not sure anyone does zin-driven blends better than Matt Trevisan at Linne Calodo. Not something worth laying down for a ling time: enjoy the intensity of the fruit while it’s young! — 3 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Geyserville Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2014

Tremendously flavorful wine. Balanced richness and enough acidity to be food friendly. Enjoyed with a dry rub sirloin and cucumber salad & Brussels sprouts from garden. Inky and clear with no brick. Nose is understated but no alcohol burn despite 14.6 AbV. Loads of ripe black fruits without jamminess. A hallmark of the vineyard and winery professionals, Ridge consistently manages to produce these monster wines that are always fun to explore and enjoy — 8 days ago

Broc Cellars

Got Grapes Carignan Blend

Easing my way back into reds with this “house espresso blend” style chilled red.

Missed the musky perfume of carignan. Aromas of cedar wood and peppercorns. Black cherries and grapefruit.

Sharp and fruity. Juicy and refreshing. Even a bit astringent, which I kind of like.

Chateau Carignan

Prima Premières Côtes de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Ming L

While the nose is deep and brooding with plum, blackberry, pine cone, worn leather, and dried herbs, not dissimilar to the 04 and 05 vintages, this 06 shows the juiciest and freshest palate. Grainy but gripping tannins that will take another 3-5 years to resolve.

Lovely Merlot!

Bedrock Wine Co.

Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Zinfandel Blend 2016

Soft, warm, spicy, inviting—dried cherries, cocoa, floral tones, tomato leaf, cracked pepper; soft tannins and lightly viscous. No need to wait. A great pairing for a very elegant barbecue — 11 days ago

Transition Saint Chinian Carignan

“L” natural Grenache at Primrose 2019 with Zubal on 7/14/21. Dazzlingly delightful recommended by Sebastian for $70. Dances on the front of the tongue. Light, lots of barnyard, to the point of “manure“. Does not stand up to food. — 8 days ago
