Monkey Jacket North Coast Red Blend 2019

Bargain find in Houston TX. Lovely blend of pepper, blackberries and cranberries and the slightest hint of effervescence that gives lift. Enjoyed outside in 90 degree Texas humidity and was light as a feather. Perfect example of the balance that can be achieved with California wines. — 9 days ago

Castello di Amorosa

Anderson Valley Gewürztraminer 2019

Pale lemon in color.

Pretty nose of white flowers, honey, lemons, spices, tropical fruits, red apples, honeysuckle, guava and white pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry to off dry on the palate with citrus, apples, pears, honeydew, black pepper, bitter herbs, light vegetables and spices.

Spicy finish with light almonds and black pepper.

This is a very tasty Gewürztraminer from Anderson Valley. Elegant and rich. Fruit forward and spicy.

Showing nice complexity with a smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking and good for parties.

Nicely balanced with enough acidity to balance the sugars, and good by itself as a sipping wine.

Way too easy to drink this, so you better watch out, as the high alcohol will creep up on you really quickly.

I paired it with beautiful view.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$30.

Cemetery Vineyard Grenache 2018

Nice medium dark purple… amazing aroma of crushed strawberries, ripe blackberries, and a touch of savory rosemary. Medium weight, round, ripe, not jammy…nice hit of forest floor, crushed stone, and ‘shrooms. I’m not a huge Grenache-geek but this one works well primarily due to its restraint. I love everything I’ve tried from these guys. Nice to see Mendocino producing something remarkable apart from weed. — 2 days ago

Well if you don’t want to spring for the real stuff this is a great alternative: med sized bubbles, mild yeast note, golden apples & lemon verbena, some mineral - pleasant & unobtrusive, zippy bracing acidity w/citrus on mid palate leading to clean finish. — 6 days ago

Rombauer Vineyards

Proprietor Selection Carneros Chardonnay 2020

Rombauer - expecting butter bomb based on prior experience. But this was completely different

Slight oak toastiness. Acidity and creaminess in great balance. A lot of depth and body. Little lime and super smooth. Just delicious through and through.

This is a tasty oaky Chardonnay from Carneros.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with oak, vanilla, spices, yellow apples, herbs and black pepper.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.
