Marin County Viognier 2019

This is really nice. Classic Condrieu-like nose is floral (in a restrained way), and has pure but musky white fruits, along with just enough crushed rock minerality to keep it interesting. Mouthfilling but not heavy, it’s got fruit and nice acids and finishes dry and long. Me likee. — 10 days ago

Horseshoe Hillside Pinot Noir 2018

I will give this wine a slight nod over the 2019 and really it is all to do with the one extra year in bottle. Yes these were infants but fascinating to see what these young beauties taste like out of the gate. — 9 days ago

Clearview Estate

Coastal Gewürztraminer 2019

A sweet wine, but not too sweet. When it’s freshly opened it almost feels as if it’s bubbling, it’s quite amazing. Sharp notes and citrusy. — 5 days ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1996

Nose has ripe blackberry, over-ripe black currant, dehydrated black cherry, moist prune, dried mint, old leather, old cedar, fresh cigar, ever so slight eucalyptus and milk chocolate powder.

Palate has velvety black fruits, blackberry/black cherry/plum, cedar, wet leather, wet volcanic rock, moist garden soil and wow what a finish, so long, so beautiful. Well cellared '96 CA should last forever! Medium tannins persist! Decanted 6H, more time would be appreciated, alas our last and only bottle, damn it.

Paired to Allen Bros. filets (Prime/Complete Trim) grilled to 127° then rested for 12m, perfectly medium rare; Toasted orzo with grilled squash and brussel sprouts with bacon. 🤤

An early Father's Day with my parents, so I don't have to compete with my Sister & Nephew's in 24 hours, plus we'll have the better wine. 🤞

@Peter Sultan @Josh Morgenthau Thanks, and sorry for no food companion pic, was relaxing with the parents and not thinking about a food shot; this wine pic was taken early in the morning before the sun was fully awaken.

Arey Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

2019 vintage. Bâtard-Montrachet nose, Chablis Grand Cru finish. Thin, watery body and the mid-palate is definitely in a period of transformation but this wine is going (other) places and would love to revisit in a year. Mineral component and acidity are on point currently with that ethereal Santa Cruz Mountains terroir but expecting this wine to fatten up in the next twelve months. Fascinating. This producer is making some palate-challenging chards and pinots along with a solid red blend...all with low case production. This one is all of 130 cases and with a nice price. — 8 days ago

Trout Gulch Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Pale gold. Lemon, minerals, high acidity and bitterness level. Crisp, sinewy wine. Apple skin, green melon, paraffin, freshly cut green herbs. Many users say they find this Chablis-esque, and I can see that.

After a day in the fridge this is slightly richer and less restrained. Very nice wine.. 👍🏻

Doring Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Doring Bay, Western Cape South Africa Sauvignon Blanc 2017 mit 14,5 Volumenprozent
Ein toller Wein, würzig, intensiv, leichte Alterungsnoten Richtung Sherry, von der Farbe noch hellgrün und im Abgang noch deutlich als Sauvignon Blanc zu erkennen.
