Ames Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

I’ve rated much higher in the past but it’s been a while. A little too much oak spice and vanilla throwing off the balance. Hopefully just dumb period. Pretty sure I’m having one of those… — 3 months ago

Boushey Vineyard Grenache Blanc 2018

Newish vintage, 600 cases produced. 94/6 blend of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne from three vineyards: Boushey (81% GB), Weather Eye (13% GB), Olsen (6% R). Pale yellow white, excellent clarity. Floral, vanilla and mild aldehydic barnyard aromas. Guava, lactic flavors, tropical fruit finish (banana then coconut? But this ain’t no Piña colada). Lingering cherry and heavy (skin and seed) tannic aftertaste . This is either serious experimental winemaking, or ultra craft-focused ‘blanc de noir’, or is this just their iteration of a pale “orange” wine? Massive tannins for a “white” wine. Not a wine for the faint of heart. Dry, just enough acidity, fruity but still pondering this one... The trop fruit flavors backed off, with cherry and other red fruit and Grenache character flavors emerging after 30-60 minutes. Tannins also softened somewhat, with patience — 3 years ago

Beade Primacía

Ribeiro Teixadura 2017

Lemon curd, lime, banana, green apple chewy candy, piña colada/ coconuty pineapple, green herbs + bit of anis spice. Salty too!

Both creamy + crunchy. Super refreshing with snapping acidity but also mouthcoating creaminess (lil malo?). Touch nutty/oxidative it seems. Perhaps used oak.

Fantastic. 91.5

Drinking great right now. Lots of currant, cherry cordial, and maybe a little licorice. Great Wednesday night drinker. @J Greene hope you have some left! — 7 months ago

Nigori Creme de Sake

A piña colada in sake form - very fun and a big time crowd pleaser! Creamy, smooth, and unfiltered. Medium bodied texture that reminds me of pulpy orange juice. Roasted coconut, pineapple, some grapefruit and banana. — 2 years ago
