Voyage 9 Red Schooner Malbec

Purple and dark fruits, not much tannins. Easy drinking. Very interesting pairing with fried eggplant/cheesy grits. Jammy vs spicy. A fun ride. — 16 days ago

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Hands of Time Napa Valley Red Wine 2017

Here’s an incredibly approachable, succulent, and delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Napa Valley, California.

We enjoyed sipping this wine while participating in a virtual wine tasting with Assistant Winemaker Luis Contreras, who provided context behind this wine’s beautiful label.

He explained that in 1970’s there were more than 35 vineyard workers who worked the land at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. Some stayed and others left to become winemakers and/or vineyard owners of their own.

They all left an indelible handprint on the trajectory of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and this label pays tribute to them and their influence on the success of Stag’s Leap. The label was inspired by the real-life plaques created with these individuals’ handprints on French Limestone which remain on the walls of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars to this day.

This wine is medium purple. Very fruit-forward with ripe blackberry, black currant, and boysenberry, also anise, dark chocolate, vanilla, nutmeg, and clove. It has balance with a good amount of acidity to complement the ripe fruit characteristics and higher alcohol (14.3% ABV). It has smooth tannins. It is ready to drink now.

JL Giguiere

Pillars of Hercules Red Blend 2019

Color of dark purple, quite inky. Nose of dark fruits, plum, currants, aldehyde, crayon, medicinal strawberry syrup, spicy alcohol in the nasal cavity, spice of leather, and hint of honey note. Taste follows the nose with addition of mellow tannins, cherry, vanilla, and a bit smoky feature. Aftertaste is medium long with warm alcohol in the throat. Pretty silky and tasty. — 17 days ago

The Storm Cellar

Rose Of St. Vincent 2020

They did it again. This wine just inches out the Alpenglow rose with perfectly balanced acidity, but this time with even more fruit flavors. The St. Vincent has finesse and elegence that leaves no doubt about its quality. — 14 days ago

Margerum

Sybarite Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Outstanding value. This is acidic and tropical. Huge amount of flavor with some stone fruit, tart apple, not much grass at all, but well balanced. Margerum’s wines were some of my first in exploring SB terroir and this one reminds me of the excellence he had at wine cask. — 15 days ago

Hill of Grace Vineyard Shiraz 2010

Spectacular effort. The wine meets you from the glass, confit cooked fruit with exotic spice, first impression is jam and not wine. Medium bodied with long burn. Is this the best Australian wine ? — 15 days ago

Actually the wine is very meaty I.e. a full expression of umami

Mont Gravet

South of France Rosé Cinsault 2020

More complicated than most roses I’ve had. Something herbal, thankfully not too sweet. Not sure how ashamed I should be in admitting I dropped an ice cube in this while enjoying a patio dinner on a warm Boulder evening. — 20 days ago
