Calera Wine Company

de Villiers Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010

Legendary Loss

Calera founder Josh Jensen passed away earlier this month after a lifetime of achievements that included elevating American Pinot Noir on the world stage

Day 1
Served this with the Vinloq System
👃Bold, sexy, purple fruit floods from the glass endlessly
👅Spicy purple fruit, blood orange, sasafras, and licorice. A gentle tannic pull on the smoke tinged finish. Drinking well

Remaining wine was Slow Decanted in my refrigerator

DAY 10
👃Sweet, spicy, purple fruits with more vanilla, oak, vegetal, and tobacco notes than Day 1
👅Same sweet plummy fruit with tobacco and licorice. Fruit forward but balanced. Soft tannins and no heat

I did not have a preference for Day 1 or Day 10. There were more oak notes on both the nose and palate on Day 10. Two solid showings👍This is solidly in its drinking window & will be there for quite some time 🍷

MacRostie Winery & Vineyards

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2020

Yellow in color with a golden hue.

Nice nose of citrus, cedar, toast, vanilla, spices, golden apples and white pepper.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with oak, vanilla, citrus, apples, light pineapple, pears and light earth.

Tangy finish with limes and black pepper.

This is a tasty Chardonnay from Sonoma Coast. Refreshing and easy to drink. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

Needs 15 minutes of airtime to remove some of the vanilla notes, and balance itself out.

Alcohol is well integrated, so you better watch out.

Good by itself or with food, and will be nice to revisit it in a couple of years.

100% Chardonnay grapes were aged in mostly French oak barrels for 6 months on their lees.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$26.

Schramsberg Vineyards

Brut Rosé North Coast Sparkling Chardonnay

First bottle of honeymoon wine at the Mark Hopkins InterContinental In San Francisco! It smells like the best piece of baked brioche bread, the crust specifically. Surprisingly light on the bubbles, almost a pet-nat level of effervescence, but the flavor is straight acidic red fruits, with strawberry and some lemon citrus, and a delicious dry finish. The finish is also mouth drying, but all mineral driven. Very enjoyable pre-dinner sparkling! — 2 days ago

McNab Ridge

Family Reserve Largo Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Nice Mendicino Cab. Dark ruby color. Intense nose of black cherry and vanilla cream. The very busy pallet includes dark cherries and currants with hints of cocoa, tobacco, baking spices and that ever present vanilla. Soft but rich at the same time. The finish just goes on and on. Aged 26 months in French Oak. Also a great value! Appreciate you sharing this one, Kase! — 11 days ago

Block No. 45

Monterey Merlot 2017

This is the Monterey Merlot. Plain as plain can be label design. Ruby red with just a hint of rusty color. Flavors are tangy, juicy and complex. This is CA Merlot like it can be made well. Leather, mulberry and just the lightest touch of sweet black licorice. — 10 days ago
