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.

Nielson Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

This is a new one to me… 2 hour decant left me happy as this wine has a smooth and silky texture with ripe cherry and Asian spice notes. — 19 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 — 13 hours ago

Subida Santa Ynez Valley Tocai Friulano 2009

A deep golden straw color. Aromas of apricot and white peach. Give your glass a little time and swirling to introduce the aroma. The texture is rich, clean and smooth. On the nose (after time) are hints of almond and sickle pear. There is a suggestion of acidity which provides a balance. Excellent. — 11 days ago
