El Padrino De La Cuadrilla Ballard Canyon Syrah Blend 2018

Nose has jammy ripe raspberry & blackberry, spicy oak/cedar and warm plum.

Palate has ripe blackberry, plum, black cherry and dry soil.

Opened 3 days earlier, it was a tannic and jammy beast, not my style. Honestly the youngest bottle we've opened, so I wasn't terribly surprised by the showing. This wine has really settled with very extended air, quite pleased tonight.

2018 blend is 70% Syrah, 15% Grenache & 15% Sangiovese. We've been enjoying this wine randomly since about the 2009 vintage, embracing the culture behind the label. Look it up if you're not familiar.

"Love You Bunches" Carbonic Sangiovese 2020

Blind Date wine! Blind tasting notes: "Bright ruby red, candied red fruits, jolly rancher and bubble gum. Low acid, low tannin, slightly effervescent. The food pairing suggestion makes us think Italy, but the fruitiness and low acid and tannin makes us think Not Italy." Soooo tasty with a BLT and pasta salad with tomato and basil. — 17 days ago

Great refreshing sparkler for the 4th! Clean, crisp rosé, a bit tinny on the nose, apricot and some vegetal qualities. — 24 days ago

Para Maria de los Tecolotes Ballard Canyon Syrah 2019

Punctuating a row of B Day wines, up in Columbia county. No notes but juicy-black fruits, juicy mid palate. 80% Syrah, 20% petit Verdot. Balanced- not open knit like my only Cali Syrah reference point, Tensley. — 2 months ago

Cuvée Viticole Ballard Canyon Chenin Blanc 2019

Very lifted and sharp with a fun slate, lemon, honey and apple skin, with a strong structure and a wide feel of beautiful it’s an amazing wine that is going to continue to grow and develop. — 2 months ago
