William Chris Vineyards

Mary Ruth Muscat Blend 2017

Crisp and herbal with peaches and lime all over the place. Drinks like a lighter bodied cross between a Loire Sav Blanc and an Albariño. A perfect match to a chicken Caesar salad on one of the last warm days of the year. This TX producer delivers more often than not. Super enjoyable. — 16 hours ago

Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 1983

HFS—maybe the best mature Napa Cab I have ever had and I have had a lot. Plus the wine is still in great shape. From an era when wine was balanced going into the bottle.

kudos to Al, RIP. Bought this bottle at my first wine job in 1986.

Barbie Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Blanc 2019

Classy stuff! Bone dry, reticent aroma, but med-full bodied texture and long, raspy, lingering finish. Reminds me of high end Alsatian Pinot Blanc and perfect foil for French/Viet Namese Fusion. Such a pure pleasure. Willamette whites are coming into their own and really rock in’! — 9 days ago

Vineyard Blocks Chalk Hill Red Blend

Notre Vue Estate GSM Rosé 2019 Chalk Hill, California

Pretty salmon in color.

Nose of citrus, limes, light raspberries, spices, earth, vegetables and minerals.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity, crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with raspberries, strawberries, cherries, limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, herbs, spices and white pepper.

Nice finish with spices and almonds.

This is a very enjoyable Rosé from Chalk Hill, Sonoma County. Fruit forward and refreshing with nice complexity.

Nicely balanced with a buttery mouthfeel. Better when properly chilled.

Good by itself or with food. I had it by the pool with soft cheeses.

A blend of 34% Grenache, 33% Syrah and 33% Mourvedre.

12.7% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$29.

Docker Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Grabbed on big markdown in a grocery store up in Mendocino. Never heard of it. Deep end grapes. 14.5 a little bigger style but wears it well. Enough brightness in it to balance. Totally solid. — 15 days ago

Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young Pétillant Naturel Touriga Nacional 2019

Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young. Name of an old tune and a pretty little Hill Country pet nat of Touriga Nacional with a swinging stopper cap.

The heady beery foam is in no hurry - sticks around for a minute.

Spiced orange coriander Christmas ale. Peaches and soft pink cantaloupe.

Watch Hill Vineyard Grenache 2017

A food-loving Grenache from CA—yay! Plenty of cran-ripe acid. Lighter on the spice, higher on the acid. Grilled veggies, charred tomatoes and bell peppers, and a nice Italian Beyond sausage: just what this glass calls for! — 11 days ago

St Innocent Winery

Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir

Medium garnet rim, pretty and perfumed. Medium acidity and long, chewy finish of mild cranberry, some pencil lead. Really impressive structure - stewed plum? Consistently good producer of terroir-focused Pinot. The Freedom Hill is lovely. Oh, lavender too. — 12 days ago
