Napa Valley Chardonnay 2013


Medium lemon color. Pronounced nose. Lemon custard, honey, quince, popcorn, Smokey. Medium+ acidity, high alcohol, medium+ body. The high alcohol and the lees mask the fruit and the resulting sensation is a lack of freshness. — 2 days ago

Blankiet Estate

Paradise Hills Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

2002 vintage. Decanted and tasted over the course of two hours. Great fill. Excellent cork. Heavy body. Initially, just oodles of richness (still!) but after 30 minutes, began to fill in structural details on the back end dossier. First impressions, a 9.3 so things definitely improved. Tasted more like a 2016 or newer vintage-very fresh. Nicely made and seems to be effortlessly gliding along currently. Feel it needs another 4-5 years to kick in the door to "the zone" but in the adjacent zip code currently. Still on the ascent to the top of the bell curve. Be patient. 12.8.23. — 2 days ago

Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2021

2021. I hadn’t tried any Sandhi wines yet and had settled on having a Pinot Noir at The Oven with dinner, but when we stopped into bin105 for a glass and saw this bottle in the cooler… crisp, floral, nutty, and a little reduction on the nose. — 15 days ago

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

Medium to full bodied Pinot from Sta. Rita Hills. Medium weight in the glass with notes of red berries, cinnamon, damp earth and spice. Decent length in the finish. This could use another 2-3 yrs and really shine. — 23 days ago
