Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Inky at first glance and wonderful eucalyptus on the palate. Structured tannins, smooth earth, and bit of pepper. Exceptional. — 6 years ago


Cliff Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

1987 vintage. It has some funk but it's held up well. — 7 years ago


Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1979

About as good a California Cabernet from the 70s as I can recall... and we have had lots of the greats. Plenty of life left, but my only bottle. Wows! — 9 years ago

Trocken Kabinett Spätburgunder 2014

Upon opening, a big hit of undissolved SO2 on the scratchy back palate. After a day’s aeration, a lovely, medium-weight Pinot. Cola, roasted plums, pie spices...not unlike an old Tulocay Pinot Noir! Fun stuff. #pfalz #spätburgunder — 6 years ago

Napa Valley Zinfandel 2010

Good wine. Let it breathe a little at first. Definitely a favorite! — 8 years ago


Haynes Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

My favorite wine Bill and his daughter make. Exuberant, balanced, handmade. Great reference for Coombsville CH, lively spine, just ripe pommaceous fruit, orange oil, peach blossom, contrasted by baking spice, deft oak, creamy lees, vanilla and fresh brioche dough. Generous on the palate, not top-heavy at all. — 6 years ago
