Hirsch Vineyards

San Andreas Fault Pinot Noir 2019

Some say it takes a few years for these wines to come together; 4 years later, this 19 is showing beautifully.

Well worth the wait.

Marcassin Vineyard Pinot Noir

This wine was exquisite. Divine and restrained. Farm and earth with red berries yet refined. — 9 days ago

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2009

2009 vintage. Decanted and tasted after 30 mins. Much more acidity (specifically orange peel/orange zest) than any other new or older WS offering I’ve come across. Was really tight initially and improved somewhat. Maybe an off bottle or “in a mood.” Was lacking the usual/hallmark WS rubber stamp that accompanies their juice. Muted. 8.26.23. — a month ago

Ridge Vineyards

Geyserville Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2012

David T

Another great Ridge. There is a bit of v/a - brettanomyces on the nose but the palate is solid. 71% Zinfandel, 19% Carignane, 7% Petite Syrah, 2% Mataro & 1% Alicante Bouschet. This blend changes year to year but, the quantity is always solid. Once again, I’ve been at this a long time, but I have never opened a bad bottle of Ridge.

Ripe, juicy; blackberries, black raspberries, plum, dark cherries, boysenberries, raspberries over that hover over the top. Touch a black pepper, dry crushed rocks, volcanic limestone minerals, dark, rich soils, pine tar, melted, dark chocolate, caramel notes, vanillin, some black tar, notes of herbaceousiness, moist clay, violet for days, some lavender, amazing acidity with a well balanced, smooth structure/tension and a beautiful finish that lasts a full minute.

Happy Labor Day weekend!

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2018

Shay A

Last bottle of my 2018 SC.

Followed over two days. Juicy, ripe and balanced. Astounding value at $30. Haven’t found the signature TRB blood orange profile in these RM SCs, but that’s a small nitpick. Loads of red and black berry fruit upfront, boysenberry, red currant and dark florals. Mid palate was much better on day two as it bulked up and showed the nervy side of SC Pinot. It has a high toned/elegant profile while retaining weight. Stylistically it sits in between RRV and cool climate SC. Banging value, as always. Drink now or in the next 3-5yrs.

Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2008

2008 vintage. Decanted and tasted after 10 mins-2 hrs. Super small amount of sed in the dregs. Vibrant nose and relatively balanced early on but picked up some overt tartness after lounging in the decanter for an hour. Medium body. Decent showing and maybe has 3-4 more years at this level before dropping down another notch. 9.23.23. — 15 hours ago
