Bigelow Zinfandel 2016

Kind of angular with too much oak at first. But with some air and grilled cheddar- bacon burgers, this transformed into the proverbial princess. I like her. A lot. — 12 days ago

Heritage Clones Petite Sirah 2004

Prob didn’t need to have this btl at the end of the night, but it had a great, sweet richness. Lots of vanilla bean, soft chocolate finesse. What a treat - especially after having a 2017 Imposter early in the nite! Thx Jeff Cohn. — a month ago

Kendric Vineyards

Marin County Viognier 2019

This is really nice. Classic Condrieu-like nose is floral (in a restrained way), and has pure but musky white fruits, along with just enough crushed rock minerality to keep it interesting. Mouthfilling but not heavy, it’s got fruit and nice acids and finishes dry and long. Me likee. — 9 days ago

Even without any time to age this is just an excellent and highly drinkable red wine. I think the best that they produce on the red side for sure. — a month ago
