Switchback Ridge

Peterson Family Vineyard Merlot 2011

Napa merlot at its best. Notes of blackberry, smoked meat and a hint of eucalyptus rise from the glass. Dark and brooding in the glass. Earthy tones, dark chocolate, hoisin and black tea on the palate. Great wine in a tougher year shows the skill of the winemaker and quality of the vineyard. 11s aren’t blockbusters but great winemakers made balanced wines. — 3 months ago

Domaine de Pajot

Damien Barreau Les 4 Cépages Gascogne White Blend 2019

The wines of southwestern France are in the rise. I had another on an Air France flight pre Covid 19 at the end of February Pinches way above its weight class in terms of value. Citrusy. Perfect for spring — 5 months ago

Clos de la Cure Pommard Pinot Noir 2018

Lyle Fass

Nose is tight out of the gates. Some cherry cola, dustiness. Pulverized rock dust. Really quiet at the moment but I have faith. 18’s are built like brick houses. More aromas coming but all mineral. Fruit is buried here. Palate is super closed. Wow. This will need mega air. Like mega air. Huge grippy tannins and terrific fruit on the long finish. Easily a 1er Cru length finish. But this needs mega air. My score will rise. As this air the fruit expands on the palate. Massive power, depth and concentration. Exceptional length. Nose picks up a hint of licorice. 9.2 to 9.3 after 20 minutes. — 2 months ago

Easy drinking Merlot that lives up to the name of the most wonderful woman in the world. — 3 months ago

Keswick Vineyards

Estate Reserve Monticello Cabernet Franc 2013

Cigar box and a sort-of nose-coating cassis rise to the nose before the real journey begins. Which, as had to be said, is more TRUE Bordeaux than anything that my friends from California have been able to staple. And yes, I said it. — 4 months ago
