Stoneridge Vineyard Syrah 2014

Big surprise! The scent was floral, violets and perhaps some green herbs. But the first sip… straight pipe tobacco laced by dark blue berry and unripe fig. Where was that jammyness we noticed a few years ago? It drank quite addictive, though. Complex and intriguing. — 12 hours ago

Flooded Orchard Syrah 2015

Oregon Syrah drinking beautifully! Savory with loads of violet, blackberry, and faint smoked meat. Not very peppery. It is my understanding that this producer is no longer around and unfortunately this was my last bottle. But we made it count paired with flank steak in a charred scallion sauce with sautéed broccoli. — 15 days ago

Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2012

This developed positively from previous tastings here on Delectable. My brief notes - Liquorice; more savoury than fruit driven - Bacon, Charcuterie, spicy notes on the nose and medium weight palate. Some pepper. Very Northern Rhone in style. Certainly built for the long haul. I have 2 left - next in 2024. — 3 days ago

Domaine Charles Audoin

Cuvée Marie Ragonneau Marsannay Pinot Noir 2017

Medium dark rubi color, notes of flowers, black fruits, wild cherries and spices, perhaps some from new oak. Its complex, balanced and well done, in a modern style but no excess here. Hard to beat this quality at the price point. — a month ago

Spring Mountain District Rosé 2021

Bright neon cherry in color.

On the nose light raspberries, citrus, limes, green apples, light herbs and minerals.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with raspberries, sour cherries, limes, green apples, red grapefruit, spices and white pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with limes and light almonds.

This is a unique Cabernet Franc Rosé from Napa Valley. Feels fresh with some weight on the mouthfeel.

Nicely balanced, crisp and refreshing. Tangy and easy drinking.

Good by itself as a sipping wine, and will pair nicely with food too.

A blend of 67% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot. A tiny production of less than 2,000 bottles.

14.1% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Bouches-Chères Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

What an interesting Meursault, luscious on the palate with a lean, citrus finish, but the nose was like nothing I have experienced in white Burgundy, minty. I was perplexed and kept going back to the glass for another smell, I would have rated this wine higher but the aroma was not typical. Was it the glass? Or am I nuts? Anyway, the company and the ambiance were outstanding. — 11 days ago
