This was dynamite. Ripe yet tart blue fruits with fine grained tannins. Enjoyable after 30 minutes in the glass. — 5 days ago

Château Simone

Palette Red Rhone Blend 2012

Cherry liquer. Red and purple fruit, some barnyard, mulberry and garrigue on the finish. Ripe fruit but lithe with fresh acid, not at all overextracted; prominent tannins (but not too aggressive). Almost reminds me of a ripe, herbaceous alto piedmont Nebbiolo. Fairly one note on the nose for now, just needs more time. — a month ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

A blend of 68% Cab Sauv, 20% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 2% Cab Franc, dark Ruby with aromas of ripe dark red fruits, cigar-box spice, floral and cedar notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry and black cherry with notes of licorice, pepper, vanilla and toasty spice. Fine tannins, integrating well with oak, good overall balance, long finish ending with fruit, floral and sweet oak. Great now, still has long aging potential left! — 15 days ago

Art + Science

Petillant Naturel

Art+science mutualism. 25% sauv blanc and 75% pears. Really interesting cider/wine. Tons of funk on the nose, definite Brett, with some lemongrass, sea salt. Palate is funky! The pears seem to be in the background a bit but there’s definitely a sweetness from them. A lot of barnyard, hay, grass as well. Very interesting. Probably not for most people. — 15 days ago

East Bench Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2013

Loaded brambly fruit overwhelmed our braised short rib. Reserve for grilled meats or cream sauces. Still, a fruit bomb I can get behind. — a day ago

Dark ruby and bold mouth feel. Too big for our braised short ribs, but decently structured for the truffle Mac & cheese. Ridge never disappoints. We will just need to pair it better next time.
