Estate Bottled Cabernet Franc 2017

Almost perfect! LoireValley x NC = $18 best value ever! This is 6yrs old and absolutely stunning. Fresh cherry, herbs, and voluminous + black cherry slurpy finish! Zero flaws. Sure acid is in balance, never thought that would be a knock - so I will not let it affect my score. The mouth feel is summertime playful and food cleansing power?… had enough verve to cut through hanger steak on the grill :) — 2 months ago

Karma Zin Bastoni Vineyard Zinfandel 2016

Bursting with blackberry and vanilla, medium-long finish. Just tremendous. Not surprised, as I've appreciated Carol Shelton's deft hand with zinfandel for 20 years. — 3 months ago

Emilio Lustau

East India Solera Sherry Palomino Fino Pedro Ximénez

Lovely dark amber color. Beautiful aromas and flavors of caramel, molasses, maple syrup, citrus zest and roasted nuts. Hint of saline on the long and luxurious finish. Sweetness is certainly there but there is also nice minerality (and that hint of saline) that really keeps this Wine extremely well balanced. Fresh and lively. This one makes me wonder why I do not enjoy sherry more often. Thanks again to Kasey and Pete. Happy Birthday, Carol. — 10 months ago

Bin 17 Unoaked Chardonnay 2020

Quite tart and smooth. Not as heavy as a usual Chardonnay, almost like it’s skipping (happy). Very lemony and bright. A hint of peppery spice at the end. Definitely not oaky. — 3 months ago

Coquille Blanc White Rhone Blend 2020

Rhine white with Grenache Blanc mostly. It has good minerality but is softened by the Viognier. From Paso Robles region. — 10 months ago

Chapel Down

Tenterden Bacchus 2017

Punchy, aromatic, mouth filling. Maybe added complexity with its age? Prefered to hush heath during wine tasting with Margie at Carol and Andys. All things good about English summer. — a year ago
