Shell Creek Chenin Blanc 2018

It smells of Karl, Karl the Fog. As though you smell the moisture in the air when you’re in eucalyptus trees where fog hands low on a Northern California summer day. And then, you have a big helping of linguine with clams, overflowing with butter. — a month ago

Sandhi Wines

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Sandhi, Sanford & Benedict, Sta. Rita Hills, Pinot Noir, 2016, ABV 13.5%.

This Pinot Noir comes from the Sta. Rita Hills AVA of Santa Barbara County in the Central Coast region of California. Despite California having generally a Mediterranean climate, due to its westerly location, Sta. Rita Hills AVA receives cooling maritime and fog influences from the Pacific Ocean, aiding in the preservation of acidity, lending balance, finesse, and elegance to the resulting wine.

This wine is medium ruby with a medium(+) intensity of youthful aromas. The aromas include primary notes of candied cherry, strawberry rhubarb, orange peel, violet, tulip, mint, wet stone, white pepper, secondary notes of nutmeg, and tertiary notes of earth and wet leaves.

On the palate this wine is dry, with medium(+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, delicate tannin, and medium(+) intensity in flavors consistent with the nose. This wine has a medium(+) finish.

This is a beautiful wine with a strong fruit character and expression. It is well-balanced and offers concentrated aromatics and flavors and nice complexity.

9.5

Stunning color w/nary a sign of age: huge fog of spearmint & mineral on open. 2hrs lifted, hi-note dissipates to reveal copious black cherry, blackberry & plum pudding, chocolate, licorice, sweet freshly turned soil. Deep intense reservoir of flavors. Extraordinary density & concentration yet a real ballerina... thoroughly enjoyed this on a special day. Has miles to go tho — a month ago

Very cloudy, which acted as a proxy for the exotic flavors. $24 for a 4 pack means it’s not cheap, but worth the spend. — 2 months ago

Dry River

Chardonnay 2014

I’ve always had a soft spot for New Zealand Chardonnay and this wine from Martinborough supports the theory. Mid Lemon in colour. Dusty citrus and honey notes. These descriptors transfer through to the palate with white peach and medium acid. A touch of pineapple juice. Another classy Chardonnay from New Zealand. — 15 days ago

Riserva Monfortino Barolo Nebbiolo

A brilliant effort! This 1990 Monfortino with a six hour decant is a profound and intellectual wine. Superbly balanced with black and red fruits and a slight olive taste with a nose of fog and a consumer sera le length makes you want to reflect after every sip. It went superbly with the pasta with filet grounded to provide a sauce (yep that’s unique!) . Superb! — a month ago

Carneros Pinot Noir 2018

👁This wine is pale ruby with a delicate haze.

👃On the nose, it offers medium(+) intensity of youthful aromas, including notes of ripe cherry, strawberry rhubarb, fresh raspberry, 🍒🍓 also tulip🌷, violet, red licorice, fennel, dill, nutmeg, and wet moss.

👄On the palate this wine is dry. It has med (+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins, and medium(+) intensity of flavors consistent with the nose. It also has a medium(+) finish. I find it has good complexity and balance. 👌👌

This wine was fermented with native, wild yeast in concrete or steel and then aged in neutral oak barrels for about six months. According to the @scribewinery website, it comes from "vineyards planted with equal parts of two California heritage clones ideal for the region’s dense clay: Martini and Pommard. The Martini grapes add spice and fresh, high tones complemented by the Pommard’s natural earthiness."

Scribe, Carneros, XII. Beauty Blue, Pinot Noir, Vintage 2018. ABV 13.5%.

Los Carneros, meaning 'the rams' in Spanish, is a unique wine region because it is shared between Sonoma County and Napa Valley. It is one of my favorite places in Califorina for Pinot Noir. With the coastal breezes and fog channeling inland from San Pablo Bay, the vines have a combination of sun and cooling moderators, to aid in both the ripening and the preservation of acidity / brightness of character, which can ultimately lead to a well-balanced, but also well-concentrated wine.

I picked this up at @france_44 and would definitely buy it again.
