Brown Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Deep Ruby with aromas of red berry fruit, tea and sweet herb spices. On the palate ripe cherry and blueberry flavors, with some dried fruit notes, oak, pepper spices and vanilla tones. Fine tannins with balanced acidity carry this rich wine to a long finish. Will age well. — 20 days ago

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

Blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, and 1% Merlot sourced estate-owned vineyards in Rutherford (30%), South Napa (22%), the St. Helena home ranch (17%), and Stag's Leap District (Barboza Vineyard, 17% and Las Rocas Vineyard, 14%). Just opened this, 14 years in the bottle after a couple of years in the barrel! Still tasting well, young and juicy, should easily last another 14 years in the bottle. Deep Ruby, dark fruits, spice, complex nose. Palate reflects juicy rich berry fruits, well structured harmonious wine. Fine soft rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, tobacco and earthy tones. Wow! — 2 days ago

Bates Ranch Vineyard Rosé of Grenache 2021

Lovely medium pink in the glass…cranberry, tart pie cherry, watermelon notes but wonderfully dry and savory with hints of rosemary and mint. Leaning well towards the dry and savory side, this wine rocks with food (on this occasion very good quality Indian). Who would match Grenache rose with Lamb Rogan Josh? But it works so well and the long, savory finish is memorable. I positively love wines from Santa Cruz Mountain … this tiny winery rocks it with Chardonnay, Cabernet, and Rose. I’m thinking I should keep this on the downlow… Nevermind…nothing to see here. — 22 days ago

Chateau St. Jean

Hallberg Ranch Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010

Long legs in this one with a pretty light body. Boysenberry aroma with a hint of wet mulch. Mineral notes upfront followed by an impression of candied orange. Slow and mild heat build up that finishes with a fresh ginger taste. Overall very nice Pinot that has aged very well! — a month ago
