Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Zinfandel Blend 2022

The 2022 Evangelho Heritage blend by Bedrock is very light on its feet with a streak of bracing acidity — almost effervescence — along with light tannins. It’s a deep hazy purple in its youth with a nose of tart berry compote and leather. Seems like it will mature nicely. — 25 days ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Took me a while to decide if I liked this or not. Still not sure really. At times this feels like a great California expression of good white burgundy - puligny perhaps - from a producer we obviously respect. But at other times the buttery lanolin notes are too much for me, and overall the acid was one notch less than I was hoping. Still a nice wine. — 7 months ago

Trout Gulch Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

Strong mineral character, as the name suggests, reminding me of an Alsatian white crossed with a Cali Chard. Great balance of acidity and oak, notes of lemon custard, crushed pineapple, sea spray, and vanilla. — 8 months ago

Evangelho Vineyard Carignan 2021

Somewhat interesting single #evangelhovineyard #carignan from Bedrock. This medium plus bodied red opens up pretty slow. After a couple of days in wine chiller, dusty black fruit, bruised plum, faint sweet tobacco notes. Initial push of savory character on palate, chocolate, blackberry, lots of acidity. However, there’s a flatness mid palate - there are much stronger values from this producer in their blends with wider distribution. #contracostacounty — 2 months ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

Another stellar showing. So enjoyed the bottle a few weeks ago I could not resist another dip in the pool. Opened beautifully throughout the night. This producer and wine is one of my favorites so it just synchs with me but I think it’s a vibrant new world take on Bordeaux. Lots always going on in the glass but there is a brightness that makes it a bit livelier and it’s such a blissful harmony between it all. — 7 months ago

Estate Bottled Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2015

Love this AVA. Currants and black cherry, turned earth, smoke and bacon fat (made me think of char siu pork). Great with roast chicken. — 9 months ago

Drops Of Jupiter Red Wine 2014

This is definitely “fruit-forward” with bright aromas of berries and bold flavor and a rich color. Holds up well a little bit chilled for a late-summer picnic dinner. — 2 months ago

Areio e Vento e Amor Evangelho Vineyard Red Blend 2021

The nose on the ‘21 Areio e Vento e Amor hits you from 5 ft away, full of ripe fruit but also chocolate, mushroom, and brush. It’s a translucent purple with a touch of Evangelho dusty-ness in the glass. Smooth and balanced with mild tannins at first, it opened up in the glass and alongside food to some intense berry jam and pepper flavors. — 5 months ago

Monte Bello Chardonnay 2017

Big tropical fruits, lemon curd, luscious, yet retains acid in the end…maybe too much vanilla cream (oak) for me, but overall delicious after dinner and segway to whiskey around the fire…. — 2 years ago
