Clark & Telephone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021

Big and bold Pinot! Deep purple/garnet color. Aromas of cooked black berry/raspberry, purple flowers, black licorice and pepper spice. More black cherry and blueberry fruit on the palate with notes of dark chocolate, baking spices and maple. Quite rich, concentrated and viscous. Velvety tannins and moderately low acidity. Big Pinot! — 8 days ago

Don Melchor Puente Alto Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits and espresso notes, a blend of 92% Cab Sauv, 6% Cab Franc, 1% of each Merlot and Petit Verdot, aged for 15 month in French oak (66% new). On the palate flavors of black cherry and blackberry with currants, herb, tobacco, fig and smoky oak spice notes. Firm tight tannins, long finish ending with fruit, cacao and toasty spice, needs time to develop, cellar a while, try in 2025! — a month ago

Freakshow The Strongest Man on Earth Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon

Color of dark purple, thick with nice legs. Nose of coffee beans, cigar box, dark fruits like blackberries, and some ripe grapes. Taste follows the nose with addition of nice acidity, oak note, and spicy sweetness. Some marginal tannins and warmth to balance the flavors too. Aftertaste shows some more strawberry note and more savory acidity. On par. — 6 days ago

Klinker Brick

Farráh Lodi Syrah 2015

Simple yet likable label design. Dark as night. Smells like fresh cooked rice and berries. Persian yellow rice. Or something like that. An aromatic grain with maybe some butter in it. Not quite the ‘bacon’ of some Syrah, but similar. Flavors are great. Berry compote and bitter greens with balsamic. Good cough syrup (is that a thing lol?!). This is an unapologetic big Syrah with lots of extracted tannin and a healthy bite, but it is very tasty. — 24 days ago
