Estate Bottled Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2018

A really great SB! Blend of 96% Sauv Blanc & 4% Sauv Gris adding an interesting dynamic to the wine & distinctive aromas (prior vintages added some Semillon) Pale lemon color, citrus, tropical & floral aromas. On the palate peach, melon, herb & earthy tones, well balanced with acidity, smooth yet robust on a long finish ending rich with wet stone character. Good value! A Fav!! Tried several times, very consistent!! — 12 days ago

9.4

I get used to Rombauer as my chardonnay baseline. This held up and then some. It’s not quite as oaky and mouth-filling, but it’s still terrific. The main note of difference I got was tobacco, and I really enjoyed that. — 6 days ago

Notre Vue Estate

Sparkling Rosé Syrah Blend 2019

Notre Vue Estate Winery Sparkling Rosé 2019, Chalk Hill, California

Pretty color of light orange.

Nose of earth, light strawberries, citrus, limes, grapefruits, light peaches, spices, river rocks and herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium size bubbles, and medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with strawberries, raspberries, spices, herbs, green apples, red grapefruits, limes and spices.

Medium plus on the finish with limes.

This is a very enjoyable Vintage Sparkling wine from Chalk Hill. A very nice GSM blend. Nicely balanced and refreshing.

Shows nice balance between the fruits and earth notes, although earthier than I expected. Showing mild complexity, tangy and refreshing.

Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.

I paired it with caviar, cheeses and crackers.

A blend of 52% Syrah, 32% Grenache and 16% Mourvedre. A very small production of only 180 cases.

13.1% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Texas Hill County Grenache Rosé 2020

Fall Creek Vineyards Grenache Rosé 2020, Texas

Happy National Rosé day!

Very light salmon in color, almost see-through.

Pretty strong fruity nose with yellow apples, peaches, citrus and spices.

Medium plus in body, buttery and smooth, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with citrus, lemons, green apples, grapefruits, spices and white pepper.

Tangy finish with limes.

This is a really nice Rosé from Texas. Easy drinking and nicely balanced, with a nice mouthfeel.

A great wine to have all by itself or by the pool. Not bitter, which I really liked.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

100% Grenache grapes are grown on clay and limestone soils.

13% alcohol by volume.

Old Hill Ranch Zinfandel 2018

This was our “back-up” bottle just in case the 1981 Clos du Val Zinfandel was DOA. In the end, the vitality of the ’81 rendered a back-up unnecessary however, we were resolved to open this nevertheless. The Old Hill Ranch is a historic vineyard endowed with a natural beauty that has few peers. Carefully farmed as a field blend with 30 other varieties, the vineyard is thought to be home to the oldest vines grafted to St. George rootstock (some of them are over 130 years old!!). The wine pours a bright ruby with no signs of sediment. On the nose, dark sour cherry, meat fat, brambles, and pie spice. On the palate, a mix of tart dark and red fruits, minerals, and a soft touch of baking spice. The finish is dry and long. Remarkable structure. Medium+ tannin, medium+ acid. This is a wine with tremendous vigor and it’s just getting started. While this is drinking very well already, I suspect these will have a very long life and should drink very well into the 2030’s and possibly, beyond. — 18 days ago
