2014 vintage The flavour intensity completely blocked the high alcohol content making it so enjoyable — 15 days ago

De Ponte Cellars

Lonesome Rock Ranch Pinot Noir 2014

Raspberry, blueberry, and rose water. Notes of mushroom, oak, a hint of soy. Acid is a bit tight, could’ve gone for some decanting. But very very good. — 24 days ago

Reynard Cornas Syrah 2008

Another great one from the master. His wines are always so elegant, floral & complex. The 08 Reynard is youthful, inky with a silky texture showing notes of black cherry, graphite, crushed rock, licorice, violet, meat, black olive & pepper — 9 days ago

Saxum Vineyards

Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard Syrah 2008

Enjoyed right after the Broken Stones from the same year, this was substantially better (and that’s coming from someone whose favorite varietal is grenache!). Wonderfully balanced with a lot of fruit but still sporting a backbone, this is far and away the best wine I’ve had over the past year from the 2008 vintage in Paso. Still has a few years of development ahead of it, but my advice is to enjoy this one now. — 15 days ago

Have you tried any old Torbreck? It eats Paso up.

Impressive cork after 21 years in bottle. $45 on the secondary market.

Amazing purple, red & blue perfume florals on the nose upon cork pull. Ripe, creamy; blackberries, dark cherries, mulberries, black raspberries, black plums, raspberries, dry cranberries & plums. Mid dark spice, black pepper, clove, cinnamon, vanillin, purple fruit cola, light sweet tarriness, dry crushed rock powder, limestone minerals & steep fruit teas.

The palate & wine are still very solid but, better served 4-5 years ago when it was still peaking. Round, soft, powdery tannins. Ripe, creamy; blackberries, dark cherries, mulberries, black raspberries, black plums, raspberries, dry cranberries & plums. Mid dark spice, black pepper, clove, cinnamon stick, vanillin, saddle-wood, purple fruit cola, light sweet tarriness, forest floor with dry leaves, dry crushed rock powder, limestone minerals, used charcoal, moist clay & steep fruit teas. Amazing ruby & slightly candied purple, red & blue perfume florals. The acidy is a gentle rain shower. The finish is; lush, ruby, elegant, well balanced fruit & earth that slides juicy fruits to earth & spice & persists nicely for minutes. Wine flows beautiful elegance wire to wire.

Treat to drink Joseph Phelps wine at this age.

Excellent back in the day 13.5% ABV that I appreciate & miss!!!

The only 97 Syrah I trust is Alban, but for $45.00 its worth the gamble

Reverie

II Mountain Cuvée Red Rock Vineyard Red Blend 2017

Deep, layered well balanced wine with a delightful scent of blackberry. I absolutely love this wine! I’m a fan of Reverie II! — 13 days ago

Rock Wall Wine Co.

Sutter County Fiano 2018

Can we give this a high five? It’s supple and also muscular like a power yogi who doesn’t need to end their sessions with an om. Ripe honey (probably not a thing but I feel it), and pickled golden delicious apple skins (also not a thing but whatevs) and goodness it is strong but smooth. It coats the mouth with a a slight kick. Chill and ready but fast moving. Ashtanga Fiano. — 8 days ago

Sine Qua Non

The Gorgeous Victim Grenache 2017

+3 hour decant. An intimidating inky dark purple color. Served just above cellar temp. On the nose: perfumed with blueberry/cherry, meaty with a little funk, soil, pencil lead, leather all burst from the glass. Taste: Buckle Up......Big, pure, rich, creamy wine with black cherry, milk chocolate, tar, crushed rock, cinnamon and a grapefruit leather dry long finish. Tannins not fully resolved....had to pop one bottle young and will wait a few years for the next bottle....still, really enjoying the ride tonight! — 2 days ago
