Contra Costa County Mataro 2016

Lovely dark maroon color. Floral nose with hints of Provençal herbs leads to dark cherries finishing with a hint of reduction. Great fruit and smooth integrated tannins. Drink now. — 13 days ago

Mataro Barossa Valley 2005

I don’t know if Sabine Deisen is still making wine, but she was an incredible character when I met her years ago on her farm. Artist/landscaper w/some type of science background: she was making serious juice: all her wines are PURE, velvety, elegant, balanced w/gorgeous concentration & expression. This Mataro was no different. All the black & blue fruit was liqueur like, just absolutely fantastic. Seamless and endless. — a month ago

Think the 2018 is released in a few weeks. Haven’t tried, but sitting on some. Thanks for the note.

@Shay A Think you’ll really like this one. Too lazy to get detailed, but I think William Kelley’s WA review sums it up rather nicely. Forth Friday happening tomorrow? Might be rolling through town on my way to Utah.

@Arden Barnett : Yes, Fourth Friday will be taking place tomorrow! I’m not sure who will all be there, but I plan to drop by for a little bit. If time allows, stop by…there may be 5 people there, or 20!

Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Zinfandel Blend 2016

Soft, warm, spicy, inviting—dried cherries, cocoa, floral tones, tomato leaf, cracked pepper; soft tannins and lightly viscous. No need to wait. A great pairing for a very elegant barbecue — 16 days ago
