God Only Knows Armada Vineyard Grenache 2019

The 2019 God Only Knows Grenache from wizard winemaker Christophe Baron is a radiating beauty. Pale ruby-colored, it displays fragrant aromas of violets, blood orange, exotic spices, raspberry liqueur, ripe cranberry, forest strawberry and crushed rocks. Medium bodied and layered, the ever-so-silky tannins and balancing acids contribute to a seamless mouthfeel so characteristic of Barons wines. It ends with a bright finish and should provide ample drinking pleasure over the next 15 years. — 17 days ago

@Nicolas Greinacher I’d love to drink one “lying in bed, just like Brian Wilson did”.

Cailloux Vineyard Viognier 2020

Flabby, unexciting. For a blasé American style I greatly prefer Alban’s. Curious to see what age brings, though to me this affirms the preeminence of Condrieu. — 6 months ago

Cailloux Vineyard Syrah 2020

Christophe Baron first Walla Walla Valley vineyard, this 10-acre plot produces their flagship Cailloux Vineyard Syrah. Ruby with aromas of red fruits, herbs and floral notes. On the palate flavors of black cherry, raspberry and currants, with notes of tobacco, herbs, floral and toasty notes. Long finish, fine soft tannins ending with fruit, herbs and sweet notes. Very nice! — 3 months ago

Armada Vineyard Syrah 2016

Smells like berries and herbs...blind I would have said 100% pinot noir. well balanced and refined. Meat notes, roasting spit fire and more berries...redcurrants and cranberries. Was absolutely nothing like I was expecting. I think there is a persisting opinion here in europe that american wines are big and brash flavour bombs but this is nothing like that...refined and elegant. Cut through and paired excellently with roast duck legs! — 2 months ago

Flying Pig Cabernet Franc Blend 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Flying Pig bursts from the glass with a bouquet of spiced citrus rinds giving way to dusty rose, wild blueberries and wet stone. This is silky-smooth with medium-bodied weight and vividly ripe wild berry fruits complemented by rosemary and olive nuances. Residual acidity keeps the mouth watering through the dramatic finale, as notes of licorice and peppery herbal tones resonate throughout. The combination of 45% Cabernet Franc and 44% Merlot really works wonders here, showing the best traits of both varieties, nicely offset by an 11% dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon.
