9.0

Loved this - another local craft beer that delivers tons of flavor without being over the top: generous coffee & toffee, chocolate & vanilla - I mean, this is liquid dessert but not cloyingly sweet. Can’t drink this all the time, but it’s a beautiful aromatic & delicious sipper from time to time. — a day ago

Shafer Vineyards

Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay 2019

A generous soul brought this to our college reunion/ get together BBQ-never a big fan of Cali Chard flavors (guava, pineapple, etc), I was won over by its tautness, silky mouthfeel, & fruit intensity. — 7 days ago

This is a very tasty Pinot Noir from Carneros. Showing cedar, ripe raspberries, licorice, light vanilla, blueberries, sweet cherries, chocolates, tobacco and peppercorn.

Easy drinking and dry on the palate with medium acidity.

Nicely balanced with a nice smooth mouthfeel. Fruit forward, spicy and interesting.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself.

Benziger Family Winery

North Coast Rosé Blend 2020

Truly one of the better wines we had at our tasting today. Some roses are so light and flavorless, you can hardly remember you’re drinking something. Some are so powerful and fruity, it’s like kool aid. This finds the right balance. Red apple skin, pomegranate, and wet apricot. Really juicy and alive. — 6 days ago

Donum

Estate Grown Carneros Pinot Noir 2013

Luv this Pinot! Color is a medium to dark crimson with some bricking giving it a brownish overtone. Dark cherry, wet tea leaves and savory scents of crushed rock, smoky herbs, slight meatiness and forest floor. Taste is creamy and full bodied, cherry-raspberry fruit burst on the palate with mineral-spices and orange peel and slight tannins adding to its dry medium finish. — 8 days ago
