Desvelado Red Malbec Blend 2016

Pretty unique blend here of nearly 50/50 Malbec and Merlot, just a little cab. This is a fun wine with good structure and lots of complexity. Earthy and tight but opens up to a good fruit forward finish.

@Jillian Varner says this is like a “musty cured meat cabinet” which is hilariously on point.

Bennett Valley Merlot 2016

Fruity and pillowy soft with round perfume aromas when it opens up, but it’s ready for drinking now, not too much more aging compared to their Napa. — 3 days ago

Encantadora Red Blend 2016

Always enjoy this blend. This one was as expected. Dark fruits like plum, medium bodied, tannins not too harsh, great on its own or with a steak — 3 months ago

Bennett Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Lemony zest with an interesting salinity vibe that takes away the sour notes and leaves things at a peach yogurt tartness. It’s got a medium sized, refreshing quality. Lots of powerful flavor. — 3 days ago

Napa Valley Merlot 2016

Plenty of acidic puckery happening here. Tight and round on the front, a bit fruitier compared to their Bennett Valley, and this one has much more aging potential. — 3 days ago

Armoniza Red Blend 2016

Some green pepper on the nose mixed in with some aged cured meat. Has a dustiness that is structured well but tight tight tight! This guy is totally not ready and needs quite some aging. — 3 days ago

Bennett Valley Pinot Noir 2019

This is a nice light Pinot with some slight funkiness, not too much. A little spice, also not too much. Kind of earthy, but not too much.

Overall, it’s not too much.
