Freedom Hill Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

“Village Meursault ? Roulot? I’m told no, not even French, 🤔. American😳? Yes. Oregon ? Yes. That is as far as I got. Please take it out of the bag. Reductive nose but a laser like focus in the mouth . A taser like finish of citrus . Will purchase a bottle just to see what this becomes in 5-8 years. — 3 days ago

Chappellet

Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

12’ Chappellet Pritchard Hill Cabernet. First thing you notice is that deep purple color(syrup)
Full bodied & tight out the bottle. We decanted it for an hour and put it back in the bottle. Brought it to dinner. Just starting to come alive at this point.
Blackberry & blueberry fruits, cassis, licorice, sage. Elegance & finessed ... long finish. Hands-down the best I’ve had from this producer. Need to try the 2010 & 14 next.

Petaluma

Hanlin Hill Clare Valley Riesling 2016

Great recommendation from the local wine shop!

Light gold color. Petrol and flowers on the nose. Crisp and bright, with excellent balance. Had before and after dinner, so is very multidimensional. Loved it!

Philip Togni Vineyard

Tanbark Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Super beau en ce moment. Au nez, tabac, cafe, epices et fruits noirs. Dans le verre le vin montre une légère évolution, en bouche c’est tres bien l’elevage est bien assimile, tabac, cuir, eucalyptus, mine de crayon. Tres proche du profil bordelais mais un petit coté vanillé qui nous dit clairement que nous sommes à Napa... — 15 days ago

White Hill Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2010

The LF guys were kind enough to pull this mag from their library for me - the 2010 White Hill (had to be relabeled) 62.5% Zotovich Vineyard, 12.5% Kessler-Haak, 12.5% Rita’s Crown. Sublime. — 4 days ago
