Such a great presentation 34 years in. Ullage loss is almost zero, which tells its own story. Ethereal, but still displays lively fruit, and bright acidity and barrel toast. Sails on... — 3 months ago

Anne Amie Vineyards

Two Estates Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Le Boucher Napa Valley Red Blend 2016

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.

De Ponte Cellars

Lonesome Rock Ranch Pinot Noir 2013

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

Livermore Ranch

Livermore Valley Merlot 2013

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
