Joshua's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Even though the vintage is relatively young, this was a already a great balance between delicate flavors and strength and power not usually found alongside the delicate. It was easy to enjoy, and interesting. With notes of cherry cola on the nose and wild berries and coastal soil in the mouth. — 7 days ago

Sepia Reserva Cachapoal Valley Carmenère 2019

Cool monkey puzzle tree label drew me in. Dark, deep maroon. Blood or bruised plums at sunset. Smells of cigars (not box, actual cigar) and coffee with a hint of mints and red berries. Flavors are more tobacco products and a rich black berry, roasted red pepper streak. Bright and lively in some ways though. This is a great low cost Carmenere. Balanced, big and delicious. And it might even get more exciting and develop some complex subtleties as it get a bit older. — 3 months ago

The punishment beatings will continue until submission. Drew came with this bad boy from his cellar.
Cork disintegrated. Nose is peaty with mushroom and wood. Youthful on the palate with initial berry notes. Bright acidity has enabled this wine to sail on. Tertiary notes combine with resolved tannins. Lovely, mature wine. First growth in Napa for sure.

Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Who drew that label to celebrate 350 year anniversary? 🤪 hope the wine is better!

2 hour decant (chunky and fine sediment). A sensational dark magenta color. Checking in on the hyped 09 vintage. On the nose: great nose of perfumed red plum, cassis, blueberry, floral, gravel, cedar, and vanilla. Taste: a smooth, juicy medium plus body wine. Tannins still present....a slight bruiser at the start of its development wanting another 4 years or more for the next bottle.....notes of plum, chocolate, spicy oak, tar, and a licorice medium plus finish. Hopefully a better score with more time.

Red Wine Estate Reserve 2017

Zoom event with Drew Bledsoe and Josh McDaniels. Vertical from ‘07, ‘14, ‘15, ‘16, ‘17, ‘17 estate, and ‘18. All were exceptionally smooth and silky with good depth of fruit. Notes on the ‘17 estate reserve. I have to be honest. I liked the regular ‘17 better than the ‘17 estate reserve at this point in their lifecycle. I think the estate reserve is built for greater longevity and will race past the regular ‘17 in a few years but it was still a bit wound up. 94% CS, 6% petite Verdot. This wine was the most tannic of the night and had the biggest mouth feel. It coated your teeth with big fruit and tannins that were not as subtle as the other wines we tasted tonight. As these mellow out this wine will get better and better. Notes of cocoa and spice linger through the long finish. There were subtleties in this wine that will emerge with time. Put this away for 3-5 years and revisit it when it has had time to mellow a bit. — 4 months ago

Haven’t enjoyed one in years. I’ve had several in the past and found them to be “inconsistent” the only word I can think of. Should probably revisit. Cheers

Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This was an awesome wine! Currant, mulberry, dark blueberry and tart strawberry fruit red soaked in course tannins, which transformed into a soft pleasant landing during a 3 minute lingering finish. Drew came through! Go COUGS!! — 2 months ago

Drew Bledsoe was not only a great player but also great winemaker! I knew he like this when he poured more generously in his glass than mine 🤪

Chateau Ste. Michelle

Indian Wells Columbia Valley Merlot 2017

In my quest to discover more Merlots, this is one I will have again. While there was dark berries on the nose and mid palate, also slight pepper, cherry candy and modest spice. The softer tannins and close to velvet texture drew me in. — 3 months ago
