Chester's Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2016

Had many bottles of this RRV Zin and seems to keep getting better. One mistake was not letting it sit but will fix that with future bottles. Strong dark berry (blackberry), black and green pepper, spice mix, and more make this something that accentuates a dry rub for BBQ while also being an enjoyable sipping wine as well. — 2 months ago

Mount Veeder Malbec

Uncorked for 1 hour, sweet nose, dark red fruits, a lot going on in this wine. Finish is lengthy, definitely a good wine to enjoy with grilled, fatty meat with assertive flavor. Well integrated tannins and a lot of life left. I need to follow this over a couple days to see what secondary flavors show up...

Vacuvin overnight in fridge

Day 2: poured after reaching temp of 60F and enjoyed with dinner. Secondary notes are more noticeable and fruit is balanced. Leather, spice, and oak. Food friendly (paired with peppered bacon, lettuce, garden tomato, avocado sandwich - BLAT). Plum on night 2 vs. Black cherry on initial open.

@Paul T- Huntington Beach I hadn’t had banana liqueur in years, either, but this “Banane du Brésil” from Giffard is great.

Meyer lemon, lime, green apple, pineapple, white peach, soft, understated minerality and jasmine. Leaner bodied than the Columbia Valley and fresher. Caramel apple, citrus-lemon/lime, white peach, pineapple, honeysuckle, jasmine, delicate powdery chalky minerality with beautiful round acidity & fresh, beautiful finish.
