Underground Wine Project

Idle Hands Red Blend

A favorite WA wine to date. Very soft and fruity to start, long finish with a bit of grip. Would buy again for sure. Lots of mushroom, lots of oak — a month ago

Serrat

Serrat Pinot Noir 2016

From the Mornington Peninsula (although the fruit for this Pinot Noir came from the Yarra Valley ) - this is Tom Carson’s personal project when he’s not making wine for Yabby Lake - his main job. This had strawberry and other red fruits like cherry and a small whole bunch influence. Oak is dialled right back. A medium weight palate that is yet to show its full potential. First of 3 purchased and somewhat closed. Will leave having the 2nd for a couple of years. — a month ago

Long Shadows Vintners

Pirouette Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Love this Philippe Melka project at Long Shadows. I’m going to attempt to hold off on my remaining bottles for a couple of years. 2016 is clearly a great year for Pirouette, it’s still a teen at this point. — 16 days ago

Los Alamos Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2012

This is quite a special wine. I don’t care what the others rated this. I like it. Purchased on my trip to Santa Barbara almost 6 years ago. Now I remember why I bought it at the tasting room. Nice floral bouquet, slightly acidic, light translucent color with less than 13 percent alcohol (that’s a good thing). Very good structure that would suggest this wine is in the middle innings and can probably last a few more years — a month ago

EXPEDITION CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2018

Alder Yarrow
9.3

One of the most ambitious new entrants to the Napa luxury wine scene sits high up on Atlas Peak. In true “modern Napa” form, Seven Apart @sevenapart is a spare-no-expense project that is the work of financier Don Dady and NFL star Jason Kyle. Andy Erickson of @faviawines is their inaugural winemaker. Deep black cherry and cassis and tobacco morph into licorice and dried flowers and dried herbs on the journey across the palate. Sumptuous and polished, but with excellent acidity and an admirably restrained 14.1% alcohol. The bottle, as you’d expect from such a venture, is offensively heavy, but the wine is good. This is the remains of a press sample. — a month ago
