Truett Hurst


Black Sheep Pinot Noir 2021

This wine had notes of strawberry, some black cherry, balanced overall fruit flavors, with undertones of vanilla. Generally this was neither on what can sometimes be a Pinot’s spicy side or inversely a delicate side. This really just was an overall well-balanced, enjoyable wine. Would definitely drink again. — a month ago


Petite Sirah 2017

Great as expected for the price and grape. Not sure if I will buy again I’ve had better value for the price, particularly Macchia petite Syrah. — 4 years ago


Southdown Old Vine Zinfandel 2019

Smells like flint, plum, and evergreen. Notes of blackberry, chocolate, and dark cherry. A hint of leather and pepper. Bright acidity. — 7 months ago


Red Rooster Sonoma County Old Vine Zinfandel 2017

Possibly the best Zin I’ve tasted. — 4 years ago


Salmon Run Zinfandel Rosé 2016

Nice summer wine with salmon and shrimp — 4 years ago


Bluebird Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Racy, aromatic. Pineapple, passion fruit, mango, grapefruit, guava, gooseberry, tinges even of Sancerre-like refinement. Finish has less zip than New Zealand, a flatter, though still pronounced acidity like a Pouille Fume. — 8 months ago

Dry Creek Vineyard

DCV2 Four Clones Vineyard Zinfandel 2013

Needs a little more “jammy” like Truett Hurst a surprise at the end. — a year ago

Vecchia Torre

Salice Salentino Negroamaro Malvasia Nera

Yummy, first wine in new wohnung. Hurst bought it — 4 years ago
