Vista Verde Vineyard Grüner Veltliner 2022

Pale yellow with flecks of green in the depths, light bodied, with a dry and mineral tinted nose, with hints of yellow apple, white florals, fresh cantaloupe and (according to Tiva) cardamom. Palate is light medium, dry, with apple, white stone fruit, straw, with a long mineral driven finish. — 3 days ago

Rim Rock Syrah 2011

This could have sat down for many more years. Tasted like a cote roti, big bold blue and red fruits with smoke, blood, dried meat and herbs — 3 months ago

San Luis Obispo County Pinot Noir 2021

Big juicy fruit aromas with underlying herbs (oregano and others... I need to work on my herb aromas), tart and juicy black cherry and herbs on the palate, with a bit of body for a Pinot. Will be perfect with tritip off the Traeger tonight! And pork tenderloin on Monday. But 13.6%, yikes! Too easily drunk for that. — 17 days ago

Calleri Vineyard Negrette 2013

Dark with a slightest of rusty-brown edge on the deep maroon center. Hint of funk. Cooked plum fruits and fresh herbal stuff. Flavors are very ‘winey’. Apple- black berry baked dessert with a hint of chocolate mint. Tannins are tongue dry. This has some character. Fleshy. Rustic. Fun. Not sure what the standard for Negrette is, but this is an interesting bottle of unfamiliar wine. — 3 months ago

Force of Nature Red Blend 2020

Recommend to me as a cheap crowd pleaser and it sure holds up. Full of fruit and fairly sweet—great for a movie night with friends but would be disappointing alone. — 2 months ago
