Juicy orchard fruit, with a hint of sweet strawberries and cream, nice mineral and acid backbone. A bit of barnyard on the nose that lends a savory quality. — 2 months ago

Ontogeny Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 Ontogeny is Smokin’ value.!!! Russell Bevan Kicks Ass! Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red Wine & Joseph Phelps Insignia have gotten completely overpriced @ $200-250etc. Ontogeny at $95 is the Deal! Cheers 🍇🍷👍🏻👏🏻 — a month ago

Purrington Rued Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

@Delectable Wine : This is the Purrington Rued vineyard Chardonnay. I didn’t see it in the database.

One of the wines I opened for my annual WWC hosting.

The first release of this vineyard from Addax. My experience with Purrington Rued has mainly been with Rivers Marie and Chateau Boswell. The clone is known for being extremely floral and slightly tropical…the floral notes dominated here. As the wines were poured blind for guests, a few noted it smelled of viogner but tasted like Sonoma Chardonnay, which I agree with. Honeysuckle, chamomile, white peach and small hints of baking spices aromatically. On the palate, it sported a medium bodied profile with some sweet lemon cream, more honeysuckle, and tropical fruits (not overly ripe though). Very pretty.

Not delicate, but certainly a somewhat restrained style for Russell Bevan, and one I really enjoyed.

VHR Vine Hill Ranch

Baker and Hamilton Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2019

My score might be a bit high, but I loved drinking a more affordable version of VHR! Still up there at $125 but it’s half the price of their flagship wine and still has all the charm. — 2 months ago
