Hirsch Vineyards

Block 8 Pinot Noir 2013

Okay... I buy Hirsch to get my allocation of Chardonnay. I pick up one or two of the Pinots and dutifully display them in the cellar. BUT... this is what I’ve been hoping... light garnet, slight browning. Impeccable lightness and brilliance in the glass. Ripe strawberry on the nose, a bit fuller in the mouth. This wine rocks on so many levels. Beautiful... simply beautiful. — 3 days ago

Concha y Toro

Terrunyo Peumo Vineyard Block 17 Carménère 2016

Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe red fruits, spices and dried herb notes. On the palate flavors of black cherry, plum and currants with tobacco and herb spice. Firm rustic drying tannins, lively acidity, medium+ finish ending with complex spicy fruits. Very nice, should age well. — 8 days ago

Stuhlmuller Vineyards

Block Twelve Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Could have let this one rest longer. Incredible fruit ripeness and depth for a 13.5 ABV. Going on day 2, and this wine is still thick and voluptuous, but the nose is an absolute killer. Plums, Christmas cake, ripe orange peel, cedar, and the list goes on. An unexpected and lovely surprise. Moving from 9.2 to 9.4. — 2 days ago

One of my favorite Oregon Pinots. Yes it’s pricey but perfect for a special event. Nice balance of dry and sweet. Just yummy! — 2 days ago

Les Lunes Wine

Elvie's Block Venturi Vineyard Carignane

I’ll do this fast as it’s thanksgiving. Well worth trying, “soulful”, with a fair bit of fruit and some tannins but really quite well balanced. Quite pleased overall with a CA Carignane at this price point. — 3 days ago

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Fay Block 2 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Considered one of the "first growths" of Napa, 98% Cab Sauv, w/ splash of Cab Franc. Deep Ruby with big aromas of dark fruit, oak and cigar box spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, plum and cherry with notes of cedar, tobacco and espresso. Fine firm grainy tannins, well balanced with lively acidity, long finish ending with fruit, oak and smoky spice, elegant! Nice! — 4 days ago
