Trenton Roadhouse Chardonnay 2016

Wine #2 of the night. Paired with lobster.

Great depth roundness and more full bodied with a touch more lemon curd and oak than the Paul Hobbs. Excellent wine.

Cuvée Natalie Silver Belt Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Brought to dinner by our friends, a special treat. An excellent Napa Pinot noir. Very distinctive expression of fruit, and in balance with its acidity. Controlled. — 16 days ago

Cuvée Elizabeth Bodega Headlands Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Smooth as silk. This is a wine built to age and it shows plenty of complexity but is definitely in the zone. Fruit is not jammy or in your face but clearly there. Very burgundy like in its structure. This is a wine with several more years to enjoy. — 20 days ago
