Justification Paso Robles Cabernet Franc-Merlot 2009

Nice as always. Great way to reward yourself after a project completion. Full and rich. — 3 years ago

Edna Valley Vineyard

Central Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Founded in 1980, Winery is a partnership between Chalone Wine Group and Paragon Vineyard, defining the Central Coast appellation for which it is named. Aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and subtle spice. On the palate melon and peach flavors with citrus zest, vivid acidity, nicely balanced on medium finish. Good value. Tasting Sample. — 5 years ago

Nice! Paso with age.

These Paso wines just work better with age in my opinion. A lot of the heat dissipates and the sometimes bombastic fruits die down. The Herman Story wines also sing with 5+ years age, but they need every bit of it.

Agreed Paso fruit is delicious in its youth, but once you've had an older one, 10+ years, you'll try to keep those corks in the bottle as long as you can stand it.

Wonderful evening at the City Club courtesy of Jeff’s hosting at the Friday group. Cellar guessing Jeff is a dangerous game as he’s the type who plans to throw curveballs! All wines served blind.

Shame on me for not guessing this! My favorite Roussanne. So much pear, orange marmalade and honeyed mango. Gained some more floral notes as it sat in the glass.

Napa/Sonoma was definitely a challenging year. That part of the state it was a pretty decent vintage.

Clos Solene

Hommage à nos Pairs Reserve Paso Robles Syrah Blend 2013

Paso Wine #1. Didn’t intend last week to become Paso Week, but opened this bottle after buying tickets for the Hospice du Rhone event in Paso in April. Youngest, darkest of the three. Highly concentrated and prob with the most potential of the group, but not giving up much at the moment. Needs more time and more air. Hid its 16% ABV pretty well, so don’t let it sneak up on you. — 5 years ago

A group of guys decided to meet up at our Wine Storage facility and bust out some unique bottles! Scores and notes to follow!

This pushed for WOTN. Alban has been a source for SQN among other big Napa Valley names. Best Syrah I've had to date HANDS DOWN. Goodness. This wine epitomized harmonious. Blue and blackberries, cedar, bacon, BBQ pit grease. Phenomenal. Thanks Joe!
