Contra Costa County Mataro 2016

Lovely dark maroon color. Floral nose with hints of Provençal herbs leads to dark cherries finishing with a hint of reduction. Great fruit and smooth integrated tannins. Drink now. — 12 days ago

Lodi Cinsault 2019

Planted in 1886 and currently under the stewardship of the Phillips family. Popped and poured; consumed over two days. The 2019 Cinsault currently pours a bright, brilliant ruby with a translucent core. Medium viscosity. Whoa…this wine is fresh and juicy! Flavors of Blackberry Izzy, bruised apple, Clementine mandarins, boozy pineapple, and Laughy Taffy. Medium tannin with medium, maybe medium + acid. A really pretty wine and quite delicious. This is a fabulous summer red! I found this to be even more enjoyable the second day so a little patience will be rewarded. 8 barrels produced. — a month ago

Amador County Chenin Blanc 2015

Alder Yarrow

With five and change years on it, this wine is beginning its transformation. What were bright and juicy lemon and quince in youth are starting to take on more steely, herbal notes as savory and saline elements come to the fore. The color, if anything is even more youthful than before, holding a greenish tinge along with its blonde highlights. Killer acidity still reigns supreme here for complete refreshment. Gonna save a bottle or two and see where it goes in another 5 years. — 3 months ago

Great white table wine with good acidity and minerality. — 3 days ago


Sonoma County Trousseau 2019

Transparent pale ruby, perhaps the lightest vintage of this. Rose petals, wild raspberry, pomegranate, med acidity, not a lot of depth but so charming 🥰 — 2 months ago

Lodi Chenin Blanc 2019

Popped and poured. White flowers, lanolin, honey, stone fruits, melon, a touch of citrus. This comes across as medium acid...which I have to say, I expect more from Chenin, but this works with aplomb. Maybe the acid is sneaky hidden? The finish is maybe it’s there? Anyway, this ranks as one of the best wines made in Lodi. Massive props to Tegan and Olivia. — 4 months ago
