This 4 year old Pinot Noir from Sonoma County is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
Fruit forward and easy drinking with a spicy finish. Fun wine and very tasty now. Alcohol is nicely integrated by now.
Will continue to drink nicely in the next 3 to 5 years.
Good right out of the bottle. I gave it a light chill and had it by the pool. Paired nicely with a Double cream Brie cheese.
100% Pinot Noir grapes from a Single Vineyard. A small production of only 92 cases. Aged in 30% new oak barrels.

This Pinot Noir from Russian River Valley is already drinking very nicely now.
Showing red fruits with light wood, spices, light vegetables, peppercorn and dark chocolates.
Medium bodied with medium acidity. Dry on the palate, nice and easy drinking.
After an hour of airtime, fine grained tannins come out and bring nice structure.
Not my usual style, but I enjoyed it. A nice summer red.
Paired nicely with Brie cheese.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Zinfandel with Alicante and Grand Noir, according to the bottle. Red fruits giving way to some figs, raisins and blackcurrant. Baking spices. Smooth and delicious. — a day ago
If anyone who follows me doesn’t have this wine, then I implore you to buy it. @Anthony Biagi = NAPA Legend and a phenomenal, humble winemaker who truly appreciates those who love wine. I’m not even mentioning that from a price point, it’s ridiculous. This is just a great, juicy full-bodied wine. — 16 days ago
Bedrock Dolinsek Ranch Red
Dried blackberries and rich black and pruned plums. Black cherry dusted bituminous. Cedar and wet violets locked in an energetic embrace. Baked strawberry aromas and dried rose petal. Dried lavender emerges from bing cherry and red currant with a blackberry and bitter chocolate entourage. Touches of ginger and chicory on a medium full palate that bursts with Mallow blossom and blueberry. Intermittently tart, tangy, rich and floral, with a medicinal nod in the dried aromatics, that is a welcome and pleasant diversion. There is a black currant leaf note that likely opens to fruit with age, but is still very pleasant in its youth. #bedrockwineco #BedrockDolinsekRanchVineyards #BedrockDolinsekRanchRed #Sonoma #RussianRiver #RussianRiverValley #Russianriverred #SonomaCounty #DolinsekRanch #dryfarmed #LagunaTrenton #redwine #cared #calired #californiawine — 19 days ago
Slightly bricking garnet clear as a belle. Nose is less bright red fruit that say a Ballard Canyon suggesting a warmer climate or growing season for this vintage. Hint of tar- a bit of Syrah? This botttle was picked up in a Calistoga grocery store in 2016 so initial storage may not have been ideal. Still a lovely mouth-filling round wine about to serve with a 12-hour brisket and kimchi slaw. — 12 days ago
