Napa, Sonoma and Monterey County Chardonnay 2017

Pale lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits with sweet toasty notes for this 3 region chard blend. On the palate flavors of apple, pear and lemon citrus with baking spices with vanilla and toasty oak, fresh, crisp acidity, good balance on a medium+ finish ending with fruit and sweet spicy notes. — 3 months ago

Label Artist Yellena James Rosé 2017

Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has frozen strawberries (thawing), juiced raspberries and orange zest.
Palate has tangerine peel, mashed strawberries, and waxy yellow apple peel. In a fine spot, don't hold these any longer.

Sandhi Wines

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Sandhi, Sanford & Benedict, Sta. Rita Hills, Pinot Noir, 2016, ABV 13.5%.

This Pinot Noir comes from the Sta. Rita Hills AVA of Santa Barbara County in the Central Coast region of California. Despite California having generally a Mediterranean climate, due to its westerly location, Sta. Rita Hills AVA receives cooling maritime and fog influences from the Pacific Ocean, aiding in the preservation of acidity, lending balance, finesse, and elegance to the resulting wine.

This wine is medium ruby with a medium(+) intensity of youthful aromas. The aromas include primary notes of candied cherry, strawberry rhubarb, orange peel, violet, tulip, mint, wet stone, white pepper, secondary notes of nutmeg, and tertiary notes of earth and wet leaves.

On the palate this wine is dry, with medium(+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, delicate tannin, and medium(+) intensity in flavors consistent with the nose. This wine has a medium(+) finish.

This is a beautiful wine with a strong fruit character and expression. It is well-balanced and offers concentrated aromatics and flavors and nice complexity.

Cobolorum Petillant Naturel Riesling

Finally got our couch! And our coffee table lesgoooo!

Sage leaf, orange zest, honey in the bouquet. And a little funk.

Wow. Zing! Karpow! Boom! I call this a comic book wine because it literally jumps off the page and into your taste buds.

Not bad at all. Thanks NYT.

Fronte Negotium Otium Tergo Clos Mullet Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2015

Fruit forward with key notes of cranberry and orange peel. Beautifully soft mouth feel with just a touch of dryness on the finish to give it just a bit of structure or complexity. Great food wine. Had it with braised beef short rib. Delicious. Will buy this wine again if I can get my hands on it. — 3 months ago

Liquid Farm

SBC Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2018

Sourced from several sites throughout Santa Barbara County, this shows off very perfumed red fruits that mingle with tones of red rose petal, wet stone and orange rind on this beautiful bouquet. The palate is plush, showing a seamless texture and great sense of mouthfeel. Velvety tannins line the core of guava puree, cran-orange and wild strawberry with nice black tea and salty terroir. Complex, layered and truly delicious now at the four year mark, this outstanding new wine will provide drinking enjoyment for a decade or more to come. Drink 2020-2033- 93 — 9 months ago
