delicious Beaujolais, rather burgundian.
I was so impressed that I sought out and bought a case of this wine. — 2 months ago
Whiskey Advent Calendar Day 9: really interesting. Aromas of apples, pears, caramel, vanilla. Tastes of spices and straw and fruit. Complex and very nice. — 10 months ago
A shimmery gold with few bubbles and amazing floral notes on the nose. It’s just so pretty and inviting immediately. Raspberry and wildflowers for days, along with dusty earth and herbs. A bit of melon, a touch of cherry, a scooch of honeycomb. Lovely.
An equal blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir consisting mostly of the 2017 vintage with 30% of the previous year’s wine. Nice complexity with plenty of depth and character. Mature yet still so very fresh and electric. Sans dosage and incredibly pure throughout.
The fruitiness of the Pinot shines on the palate with blue and red berries. Roasted nuts and green apples. There’s a little spice and oak. The finish is long and robust. Definitely a favorite. — 2 months ago

The owners of Hobel Wines came to town and put on a nice tasting, while also detailing their history. Very nice people and wines. They make two wines, both Cabernets from Calistoga. TRB is the winemaker.
I preferred this over The Figure. This could be a dead ringer for a Rivers-Marie Cabernet. TRB signature style of showing the entire fruit spectrum...raspberries, black cherry, blueberries. Dark cocoa in the middle showing a finish that turned more herbal and savory. Really enjoyable. — 5 years ago
