Opened up a lot. Winetext deal — 22 days ago
The wine by @Hall Wines; the dog by Sullivan, named after @Sullivan Vineyards.
Big, chewy, and unctuous. Slightly different notes than last tasting. Blackberry jam mixed with mocha, vanilla-laced oak, and licorice flavors. A bit more fruit-forward than last vintages, this packs a punch. Such a steal - Costco usually has it and it’s only $40. — 4 years ago
My last bottle but soo good — a month ago
I think this would have been 9.x a year or so ago. Was much better after a good decant vs the initial taste. — 4 years ago
Rioja by Marqués de Cáceres. Canine by Sullivan. Named after my favorite winery @Sullivan Vineyards.
A WS Top 100. Needs to breathe. Lots of black cherry, rose petal and tar flavors. An austere, loam-filled finish. Big-time producer that I’m usually not a fan of, but they hit this one out of the park. $15 at Costco friends. — 4 years ago
Gift from Cris Sullivan, very nice — 3 years ago
The only year that Ridge produced a single vineyard wine from this vineyard. The grapes usually end up in their entry level Three Valleys blend. Good, but I can kinda see why. — 5 years ago
