The wine I have opened tonight is the 2015 Anne Amie Vineyard Two Estates Pinot Noir. A barrel selection chosen of their two estates, 67% Twelve Oaks and 33% Anne Amie vineyards.
On the nose I am getting black cherry, black raspberry, cinnamon, spice, incense, mint and smokey oak.
On the palate there is black cherry, black plum, cola, clove, backing spice and oak.
The wine is medium bodied with medium + mouthwatering acidity and medium to + grainy tannins that lead to a medium to long dark fruit smokey oak finish. We are headed into another weekend so please be safe and enjoy yourselves with your wine of choice. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 2 years ago

This blend is named in honor of the butcher shop that David’s father started in San Francisco. His butcher shop(s) launched them into a 1956 Pritchard Hill land spending spree with the thought of starting a cattle ranch. When they were done buying parcels, they had amassed 984 acres in Pritchard Hill. The third most expensive fruit today at $28,000 a ton. If you sold all of that land today, it would be worth over a billion dollars. I bet they didn’t pay anything close to that in 1956.
This was opened the day before we’d had it. While I enjoyed it, it had leaned out a bit more than I would want it. It was round with softer tannins but may have given a false sense of its ability to cellar.
The fruits are nice, ripe, lush & juicy; blackberries, raspberries, dark cherries, black plum, mid baking spices-nutmeg, cinnamon, light clove, vanillin, light spice, barrel shavings, crushed rocks, savory, grilled meats, dark, red, & purple florals with very nice acidity and a wire to wire finish that was leaner but, clean. The finish was well balanced, elegant, on the leaner side, nicely polished and persisted minutes. — 9 months ago
Purple-red, moderately extracted pigment, very good clarity. Raspberry, cherry, butter, thyme and stone notes in nose. Raspberry, soy sauce and tar flavors, grainy tannin sediment, moderate to high skin astringency, mineral finish with seed bitterness. Needs time to open. Ready to drink after three hours decanting, rounded mouthfeel, excellent depth of fruit - raspberry, cherry, blueberry water plus barrel char. — 2 years ago

A Bronco Wine wine. Hmm, That’s the Two Buck Chuck company. This is Livermore Valley AVA though. Worth the $4 flyer at Grocery Outlet. Dark ruby maroon color. Smells dense and kinda complex. Hint of fresh herbs and smoke of dried herbs with the fruity stuff. Flavors are complex. Cherries in a woodsy bourbon barrel thing. Also chalk. (Good way chalk). Meaty streak. This would go well with a rare steak from the coals. Reminds me of nice St. Èmilion or Meritage type blends from Sonoma. This is a great deal for the regular price and one of those WTF deals for $4 at G.O. Just good to great Merlot. — a year ago

The body is leaner full and ruby, lush and elegant. Perfume fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, creamy raspberries, baked strawberries, mixed berry cola, soft baking spices. caramel, light volcanic minerals, soft leather, crushed dry rocks, tobacco leaf and fresh red & dark perfume floral bouquets. The acidity is perfect and medium balance is perfect. Nicely done.
