Viñedos de Páganos

El Puntido Rioja Tempranillo

El Puntido from Viñedos de Páganos is a 100% Tempranillo red wine from Rioja.
It is fresh, fruitforward with dark red fruits and quite some depth and length. Viñedos de Páganos is one of the many estates of the Eguren family, winemakers in Rioja with a 150 year history, amongst which Sierra Cantabria, San Vicente and La Nieta.

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Well hello there, it’s been awhile you sneaky vinegary bastard, this bottle is fucking corked. Giving it the community rating because this shit does happen and it’s not the winemakers fault. My rule for corked bottles no matter the occasion is to immediately switch to bourbon so cheers 🥃 — 3 months ago

Graziano Vineyard Arneis 2013

California Arneis is a wonderful thing. Butterscotch. Apricot. Round and full-bodied. The bright acidity balances out / disguises the 14.4% abv.

Gotta love winemakers with the gall to plant a grape whose name translates as “very difficult and demanding person”

Delfosse Vineyards and Winery

Cabernet Franc 2014

Evidence of a slightly warmer southern Monticello Ava aspect/terroir…from a generally cool/dry vintage. After seven years it has concentrated a bit in bottle/callar and finding velvety texture with plush tannins. Plenty of compote/black cherry energy drives a framed herbally-sweet attack. Above average effort compared to their peers… One of the more overlooked/under appreciated vineyard sites and winemakers in the region. — 3 months ago

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Hands of Time Napa Valley Red Wine 2017

Here’s an incredibly approachable, succulent, and delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Napa Valley, California.

We enjoyed sipping this wine while participating in a virtual wine tasting with Assistant Winemaker Luis Contreras, who provided context behind this wine’s beautiful label.

He explained that in 1970’s there were more than 35 vineyard workers who worked the land at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. Some stayed and others left to become winemakers and/or vineyard owners of their own.

They all left an indelible handprint on the trajectory of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and this label pays tribute to them and their influence on the success of Stag’s Leap. The label was inspired by the real-life plaques created with these individuals’ handprints on French Limestone which remain on the walls of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars to this day.

This wine is medium purple. Very fruit-forward with ripe blackberry, black currant, and boysenberry, also anise, dark chocolate, vanilla, nutmeg, and clove. It has balance with a good amount of acidity to complement the ripe fruit characteristics and higher alcohol (14.3% ABV). It has smooth tannins. It is ready to drink now.
