"Love You Bunches" Carbonic Sangiovese 2021

From my gal (whose palate is much better than mine but thinks tracking wine is too much work): Chilled and perfect. Dusky, ruby plum colour. Smells like sweet Alberta wild rose, cranberries, sour cherry, pie spice and a damp evening. Tastes like tart cherry, bell peppers and cola bottle candies. The chilledness walks a fine line between bright acidity and subtle tannins at the end. — 4 days ago

Sandler Wine Company

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2018

Galloni seems to have it out for SLH Pinots (he also panned Liquid Farm’s recent releases) and I couldn’t disagree more. Earthy, smoked meat, hitting its stride and could go years more. Ed Kurtzman has made wine for Freeman, Roar, August West and Mansfield Dunn and his own label, Sandler, is just fine. And QPR to boot. — 20 days ago

Curtis Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2020

Even better a year later. Perfect with Greek gyro dinner. Strawberry, green pepper, forest, plums, just a bit of savory spice. Lovely — 5 days ago

La Sangre de Jonata Ballard Canyon Syrah 2013

Must buy & age
Parker 96 review

Cofermented with 2% Viognier, the Syrah-dominated 2013 La Sangre de Jonata is another terrific 2013 from winemaker Matt Dees that checks in near the top of the vintage. Full-bodied, concentrated and with bright acidity, it reveals classic notes of black fruits, pepper, violets, spring flowers and tons of minerality. It will be better in another 2-3 years and keep for decade or more after that.
