Amador County Chenin Blanc 2021

Popped and poured; enjoyed over the course of several hours. The 2021 "Amador County" pours a slightly hazy, pale straw color with medium viscosity. On the nose the wine is developing with notes of lemons, chamomile, lanolin, lime blossom, and ferrous minerals. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium++ acid. Confirming the notes on the nose. The finish is long and loaded with minerals. Balanced and ever so fresh. This was a killer accompaniment with our Friendsgiving lunch in the office and worked well with turkey. Drinking now through 2031. Only two 500L puncheons produced. — 19 days ago

Estate Bottled North Yuba Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Banner vintage for them. Black currant, sweet cherry and blackberry fruit still holding strong, iron and leather and wet bark in the background, totally resolved, totally delicious. Needs to be consumed in one go which should not be a problem — a month ago

Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Pinot Noir Sierra Mar Vineyard is a wild wine. Strong mineral and savory notes are front and center, while the fruit is more pushed into the background. This potent, driving Pinot will need a year or two to soften, but I expect it will always be rather forbidding. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2023)

Bodegas Sierra Cantabria

Colección Privada Rioja Tempranillo 2012

Made in a small town at foot of Sierra Cantabria in the DO. A single variety Tempranillo from 50 year old vines has a deep Ruby red color and aged for 18 months in French and American oak. Aromas of red fruit and spice. On the palate plenty of fruit, showing fine tannins, well balanced with a medium+ finish ending with fruit, spice and some oak notes. — 19 days ago
