Blakes Hard Cider Lite - Mimosa. Tastes like a dry cider with an orange tick tak in your mouth. More complex than other ciders — a month ago
Well that was delightful. Wish I hadn’t have cooked with the other half of the bottle....
Opened a lesser bottle I usually like after and seems like I can’t taste it at all... — 2 months ago
Date drank: January 2020
Producer: Bedrock Wine Co.
Purchased from: Anconas
Natty: Native yeasts. Minimal racking
Notes: 80+ year old vines throughout California. Nice perfume, spice, and fruit well balanced. Tobacco and leather is more subtle than other Zinfandels but i like it more. Great bottle of wine. — 3 months ago
Tastes like a vintage, is awesome. But have had other vintages of similar age with equal taste at half the price, just much harder to find cause of smaller houses. — a month ago
Half of us loved this, the other half not so much. Count me in the first group. Pours a deep yellow, a bit cloudy. Quite rich yet also tense and tight, lemon focused with some yeasty grip. Some orchard fruit shows with time. This has some heft, with a grippy, yeasty finish. Needed a decant. Super complex. Striking and unique. Need more... — a month ago

Really surprised here. Two hours in and this is singing. This is my favorite single vineyard from SG so far. Layered and expressive, but not overblown. Some of their other single vineyard wines have been overly restrained, sometimes muddy - I feel.
Nose is berry, light cigar box. Palate is cherry cola, Hershey chocolate, molasses, spicy oak, and sparkling tannins throughout that lead to grippy finish. Better half helped with some of the descriptions there.
93-94 really good vino. Interesting 🧐 I’m trying to figure out fruit and can’t. Kind of similar to other SG single vineyards.
Side note. Listening to Beatles tonight and loving the experience. Cheers! — a month ago
A delicate copper color with a more than adequate amount of minuscule bubbles. It’s very lively with the creaminess coming later. The nose is subdued at first showing red cherries and yeast but after around half an hour you’ll start to get fresh roses and tangerine. Composed of Grand Cru grapes from Verzenay, the blend is 65/35 PN/CH with 15% of the Pinot coming from still wine.
The longer you spend with this sexy minx of a champagne, the more you’ll fall in love. Still displaying those strong Pinot characteristics hours later, it has settled into a state of approachable elegance. That’s what using up to 60% reserve wines will do for you. A multitude of red berries and tasty pastries absolutely sing. Exquisite minerality runs throughout. A long finish with more citrus and acid. Comparing this to other, larger Champagne houses does a disservice because this easily blows them away. — 3 months ago
