Carmenere 2019

Wily and coy, leading me down a dusk-lit walkway of cobblestones and cascading ivy, whispering and beckoning through the shadows to a well hidden speakeasy entrance where it knows the doorperson. Must let it open for some minutes before tasting, let the demons out and then the softness reveals itself….

Los Vascos Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

Don’t hate the rating…. Hate the reality… A wonderful example of a winemaker who threw out price and built a wine that made it 25 years. Herbaceous and medium bodied… — 2 days ago

Lodi Chenin Blanc 2020

Popped and poured; no formal notes. Deep straw color. Lemon, Brazil nut, white flowers. Wooly. Great acid. Lovely. Might be the best Lodi Chenin from Sandlands yet. — 2 days ago

Seymour's Vineyard Syrah 2013

A nice surprise Syrah wine my husband opened that we are trying for the first time. Wow the color is a deep inky purple. It’s color definitely matches it’s bold fruit blueberry aroma mixed with a sweet vanilla-chocolate wafers, florals followed by notes of earth and cedar. Taste — nicely layered and velvety with initial flavors of boysenberry and a hint of raspberry followed by secondary flavors of smoked meat, minerals ending with a jammy graphite licorice cocoa long dry finish. — 3 days ago

Gran Reserva Maule Valley Carmenere 2018

Yumm, sophisticated Carmenere. Somewhere between a floral light merlot and a burgundy.

Sandlands

Lodi Cinsault 2020

Popped and poured; no formal notes. This vineyard was planted in 1886. Bright cherry and bruised strawberry fruits with some orange curaçao, espresso a light kiss of spices. Overall, there’s an impression of freshness that’s super attractive. Forget what you think you know about Lodi; wines like this flip the script. A lovely accompaniment with burgers on a summer night. Only 5 barrels produced. — 11 days ago
