Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Not generally a central coast Pinot fan but this was remarkable. Stellar lively acidity, surprising earth cola and fruit to balance and texture to savor. — 23 days ago

Steltzner Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

First experience with this vineyard in the Myriad lineup. A stellar bottle - dark blue/black fruits and smooth as glass after a 2 hour decant. — 16 days ago

Barbera d'Alba 2017

Maurillio Palladino and his family make marvelous wine in the traditional Piedmontese style. The ‘17 is a stellar effort that is drinking so well right now. — 14 days ago

La Croix Boissée Chinon Cabernet Franc 2018

Stellar. A touch of that pretty Chinon violet flower and manure funk. St. Emilion-like concentration but this isn’t inky or extracted in the least. Luxurious, satin-like texture and tannins, with a subtly sweet finish. Feels a bit higher alcohol and less acid than some of the more classic Chinon vintages, but on the basis of the massive concentration and nascent complexity this will develop very well. Young but already approachable. — 4 days ago

@Jason Gelman I’d wait a few years. Delicious now but still very primary (I opened to assess how much I want to cellar, which will be at least a half a case)

Crozes-Hermitage White Rhone Blend 2015

Lyle Fass
9.2

Love this wine. Nose is big. Ripe and mineral. Cooling. Nervous minerality. Palate is racy, rich and ripe. The 3 R’s. Amazing purity and sappiness. So clean. Bracing almost. My style of Crozes Blanc. Terrific concentration and freshness. Long, waxey and pure. Long. Just stellar. Nose has some wet earth/fresh rain happening now. — 23 days ago
