Diamond Creek Vineyards

Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Dark brooding color, opaque with lighter rims. Tight nose, hard to get a read. Notes of red fruit and raspberries, kirsch, cola and some ash comes on later. Nicely made juice, it’s well balanced. While it opened up some over the night, it was tough to get a read on this. I could only come up with mid 90s Napa Cab. Still, this is a wine lover’s wine and our ribeyes went well with this and the other bottles tonight. — 18 days ago

Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

9.3

This is a bold, well-balanced pinot. Red cherry eithout being too acidic; hint of fireworks and wet volcanic rock (but not too much). $63, would drink again. — 30 minutes ago

Colgin

Tychson Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

It’s been a long day…couple of days actually. I’ve been lucky to get some buffalo loin and this beautiful wine from Colgin to pair. Deep dark fruits, dark chocolate and espresso. The winemaker describes the 2017 vintage as having a sense of clarity and purity, something we could all use a little more of these days. — 7 days ago

Chalk Hill

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2019

A real solid $20 Chard, Barrel aged 10 months sur lie! Medium lemon color with aromas of stone and citrus fruits with notes of warm baking spice. On the palate ripe apple and lemon flavors with vanilla and nutty toasty oak. Well balanced on medium+ finish ending, a bit buttery with slight oak and mineral notes. A favorite!! — 8 days ago

Don’t often drink Malbec, looked for something a bit lighter at Star of Greece in Willunga. Typical McLV on the nose, dry up front medium tannin finish. I’ll be buying some — 11 days ago
