Ruppertsberg Riesling 2019

Looks: quite dark straw colour for a riseling. Legs are coming down very quickly and not really forming.
Smell: stone fruits, lemons,minerals and freshly cut grass in the background.
Taste: acidic, smooth and easy drinking. Some fruits coming through and not as dry as expected. Very flat structure and probably good with light seafood dishes

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

One of my favorite Cabs I have ever had. Ages very well, but can be opened right away as well. Similar to Jordan, but more of a mountainside grape. — 17 days ago

Turley

Cedarman Howell Mountain Zinfandel 2008

9.3

I view Turley Zinfandel much like Williams Selyem wines when they are young, good not great.

They need ten years plus to show you greatness. There is no faking bottle age properly stored.

I can’t drink their wine young. Too primitive, astringent, all tannin, wood & baking spices.

The nose reveals, ripe, ruby, candied fruits that are; stewed & naked, jammy fruit of; black plum, blackberry, black raspberries, plum, raspberries, mulberries, olallieberries, boysenberries, dark cherries, blue fruit mix, rhubarb & ripe date & some figs. Steeped black tea, creamy violet cola, black licorice to anise, sweet tarriness, tobacco leaf, dark spices, vapors of alcohol, dark spices, limestone minerals, moist, fresh forest floor, some mushroom, black pepper, clove, nutmeg & vanillin, rounded oak, spiced florals of; dark, red, candied florals with withering dark florals set in old violet & lavender.

The palate is full, round, ripe, candied, baked, stewed liqueured, ruby & lush w/ high viscosity. ripe, ruby. Jammy fruit of; black plum, blackberry, black raspberries, plum, raspberries, mulberries, olallieberries, boysenberries, dark cherries, blue fruit mix, rhubarb & black raisins, ripe date & some figs. The tannins, stern, tarry & chewy. Steeped black tea, creamy violet cola, black licorice to anise, dark chocolate/dry mocha powder, caramel, sweet, dark, chewy tarriness, tobacco leaf, dark spices, touch of alcohol burn, dark spices w/ soft heat, limestone minerals, moist, fresh forest floor, dry top soil & clay, some mushroom, black pepper, clove, nutmeg & vanillin, cedar/oak plank, spiced florals of; dark, red, candied florals with withering dark florals set in old violet & lavender. The acidity is like a fresh, clean river. The finish is a little too ripe, sweet but, well balanced with great complexity and persistent length.

I don’t drink a lot of Zinfandel but, this is the style that speaks to my origins. This is good with food or some berry desserts.

This still needed a two plus hour decant & has another 5-7 plus years of pleasure ahead of it. At its current evolution, it is bordering on dessert wine & should be treated as such going forward.

My favorite, like it young, love it old! We have a few older than this still in hiding.

I was at their Paso tasting room last year, and they have some 20-year old bottles available for sale at very reasonable price. I was tempted, but the tasting room staff told me these bottles most likely will be port like. So I was very hesitant and end up not buying any. Maybe I should grab couple bottles. Have a great weekend!

Forst Trocken Riesling 2017

Some typical Riesling aromas, slight petroleum without being too much, lime and some peach too. Very dry with good acidity with stony and mineral tones, and nice length for the price. 89-90

Un nez typé de Riesling Allemand, lime et un peu de pétrole, pêche. Un vin sec, touche pétillante mais à peine, bonne acidité avec de la roche mouillée et une certaine minéralité tout en ayant une longueur respectable. 89-90
