Pelkan Ranch Syrah 2008

Found another straggler and it was delicious...vivid, dark black cherry color.. smoke, goose fat, rich forest floor mushrooms. The 14.99 ABV largely resolved with little heat left. Every time I’m tempted to cut back I open one at 10-12 years... not gonna do it. Glorious new world Syrah! — 14 days ago

The Derivative Sonoma County Sémillon Blend 2012

Surprisingly youthful. Fantastic aromas of beeswax, lanolin and lemon. Shows richness from Semillon and crisp acidity from the supporting cast. You know, just your classic semillon, muscadelle and palomino blend. Delicious at 8 years. Should hold for a couple more but too yummy now to risk it — 24 days ago
