"Cedarville" Mourvèdre 2008

As the recent mailer from LCF noted, all the vintages of “Cedarville” Mourvèdre are drinking beautifully, this being Exhibit A — dark fruit, garrigue, structured and still not at peak, absolutely lovely here at age 15!! — 2 days ago

Terra d'Oro

Amador County Zinfandel 2018

Medium ruby color; strawberries, dried herbs, and cherries on the nose; high acidity, high tannins; tastes like raspberry jam, crushed gravel, and white pepper with a long finish. Nellie doesn't like it. I think it's very good and very drinkable. I would definitely buy this again. It gets even better after some aeration. — a month ago

Forlorn Hope

Queen of the Sierra Zinfandel Rosé Blend 2022

This deep-pink rosé made with whole-cluster Grenache, Tempranillo, and Zinfandel grapes is absolutely dynamite!

Produced by Forlorn Hope, from the organically-farmed Rorick Heritage Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills of Calaveras County, CA.

It bursts onto the palate with juicy watermelon, hibiscus, white tea, raspberry, strawberries and cream, opening up to a textural mouthfeel, made fresh with bright acidity. It’s delicious.

Cheers to high-quality, small-batch producers that are carving a new path in California!
