Clos Saron 2018 Home Vineyard
No decanter or nothing for this one I’m just raw dogging it the way it was meant to be.
The nose is so much cherry very bold with a touch of earthiness. I could live in this glass forever just smelling it and be happy.
The palate is powerful and grips like crazy. It has an acidity to it that’s lasts forever. More cherry with cranberry and it has this nice juiciness to it that makes your mouth water after each sip and the finish seems to go on forever. I think I want to marry this wine.
After the wine had been open for a while it developed a black licorice note on the nose and I just can’t get enough of this one. — 19 days ago

This Zin is outstanding! Let it breather for a bit to get the best taste and smell. The smell of this wine is incredible and the taste is as well. Leather, tobacco at the front and a jammy fruit with a hit or vanilla/spice. Velvety and smooth it’s a pleasure to drink. Drink on its own for a the true tasteful experience! We had with meats and cheeses but they diluted the wonderful taste of this beautiful wine. — 9 months ago
A beautiful reflection of Syrah from Santa Barbara County……big, bold yet not overwhelming. Paired with smoked pork spare ribs & BBQ baked beans — 3 years ago
Home alone for 24 hrs! The perfect time to open something older. Fully mature Bordeaux... I mean Napa! Dried fruit and tobacco, there is still a frame of tannins but they are well integrated and slightly chalky in texture. Enjoyable but more mature than I prefer. — 4 years ago
Aromatic notes of rose and violet. Great depth of delicious flavour on the medium bodied palate. Red fruits - savoury and rich. See previous note for the 2014 - always excellent but 8 years of cellaring has enhanced this wine. To have won the Jimmy Watson Trophy for the Best One Year Old Dry Red at Royal Melbourne and still starring now at 8 years of age shows this is a wine for all seasons and all years. Should be a regular purchase. A Winner. — 2 years ago
Nice holiday bubbly!! Roederer Estate sparkling wines are crisp & fresh reflecting the cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley, home to estate's 600 acres of vineyards. Blend of 60% Pinot Noir & 40% Chardonnay. Light salmon color, good flow of bubbles, firm mousse, aromas of berry fruits and biscuit notes. On the palate flavors of strawberry, ripe apple and peach with a dash of pepper spice. Long finish, lively acidity ending a tad creamy with toasty yeasty tones. Very Nice! — 2 years ago
As this warmed above 50 degrees the flavors became quite complex and interesting. Herbal, vegetal, but unique and distinct flavors came out. Creamy in texture with umami in spades. Excellent — 3 years ago
