Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

B18. Very nice. Neutral nose. Strawberry, watermelon and lime fruit. Crisp, tart, mineral finish. — 2 years ago

Etude

Yamhela Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Bursting with raspberry, tea, and cinnamon flavors with elements of crushed gravel. Medium-bodied; elegant, mouth filling finish. Fantastic wine, and in a sweet spot right now. Not one to hold for too long. And doing a nice job helping to dull the pain of America’s Team getting the crap kicked out of them by the Bills. — 3 years ago

St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Tannins resolved, nice fruited core and took 90 min to really blossom. Not quite up to the Rutherford bottlings of the same era but a pleasure nonetheless. Drink now — 2 years ago

Estate Grown Carneros Pinot Noir 2006

2006 vintage drinking in 2019- color is brownish / burnt umber mixed with burgundy (no pun) Earthy on the nose. Wet soil and mint. You must wait at least a half an hour to taste- On the tongue fresh fruit some red/dark cherries and ripened peaches. The finish is nice and long and tannins are very pleasant not overwhelmingly grippy. Really nice Pinot Noir. Wait! What?? This is is not a french pinot?!!! :P — 3 years ago

Di Co Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Nice pure blackberry and cassis fruit with just a dash of brown sugar. While it has plenty of fruit, it has a savoriness and fine tannin that keep it from being cloying and bring it good balance. Very enjoyable without food, but it really shines with a grilled, dry-aged Flannery ribeye. It is the kind of balanced Napa Cabernets that takes me back to wines like early 1990s Etude and Forman. — 2 years ago
