Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Very very surprised, this wine is yummy! On the nose chocolate, mocha, cassis, tobacco, vanilla and blackberries.
Tastes of Tootsie Roll, vanilla, caramel, graphite, peppercorns, tar and blackberries. 
Smooth, not great complexity but certainly enough. Color indicates possible use of Mega purple, if so it is used wisely. Lacking in acidity (my throat is thanking me, pollen is high).
Ninety minute decant; rating reflects QPR. An enjoyable $14 wine!

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2016

A fine bouquet. Wonderful taste! A beautiful Pinot Noir that’s perfectly balanced. Exactly what’s I’d think a Pinot Noir should be! Love this older vintage too; just the right amount of time, I think. Let it breathe too — 17 days ago
