Caldwell Vineyard Syrah 2018

This is actually the 2018 Modus Operandi Caldwell Vineyard Syrah. Color is deep purple with scents of bacon fat, plum sauce, cigar box, and maybe camphor. After opening up a bit, I get cardamom and vanilla, as well. Nose is a little funky, but not in a bad way. Bold, medium to full-bodied wine. Medium to high acidity. Medium level of tannins. This was the best wine in a blind tasting of Syrahs with DuMol and Kimsey. Both my wife and I ranked it #1. The finish was significantly longer and more pleasant than the others. — 6 days ago

The Originals

Washington Syrah 2020

Color of saturated purple. Nose of ample acidity plus dark fruits, black berries, strawberries, vanilla, and strength of alcohol. Taste follows the nose with addition of good tannins, bitter notes, and sweet dark fruits. Aftertaste shows some off-balanced bitterness. Ok. — 11 days ago

Geyserville California Zinfandel Carignan 1976

Quite pretty and savory on the nose. Stinky fruit. A lot of character. A little short and astringent on the finish — 6 hours ago

Not only is this a weekend to remember those who have lost their lives for us, but it’s a sad weekend for me. I lost a longtime friend to cancer yesterday. We went to high school together in Iceland and we both served in the Navy. Normally this would be our weekend to get together and hang out at the pool, drinking beer and listening to 80’s music. RIP Faye I’ll miss you my friend — a month ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé Grenache Blend 2018

Nose has tangerine peel, raspberries, roses and under-ripe nectarine.

Palate has candied orange, strawberry, orange pith/zest, mild acidity and lingering mineral notes to the medium finish.

Blind, this is a Provence rose to me; nice effort in the cellar here. A steal of a deal when we got this for ~$14.

2018 Blend: 38.5% Grenache, 30.5% Grenache Blanc, 12.5% Carignane, 10% Cinsault, 6% Mourvedre, 2% Picpoul & 0.5% Vermentino

0.5% Vermentino! Would it really make a difference? Just don’t understand why a winemaker would bother to blend such a small percentage with the mostly Southern Rhone blend.

Trader Joe's

Grower's Reserve California Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Color of purple, saturated and deep. Nose of dark fruits, black and blue berry jam, ripe grapes jam, a bit tobacco leaves, and more fruit jam nose. Taste follows the nose with addition of sweet note, a bit zesty, a bit pepper, low tannins, smooth and tasty. Aftertaste shows a bit more tobacco leave and sweet note. Above average. — 12 days ago

Red Blend 2019

Organic grapes! Not too fancy looking label. Dark as blood. Smells like fresh cut wood, a musty library and deep red-purple plum sauce. Flavors are balanced out with a bittersweet tannic edge to match the berry and lighter roast coffee flavors. Also has a fresh chocolate mint leaves meets fennel fronds thing in there. Easy drinking, but dense enough to drink with aged cheddar cheeses. This is a great deal, and example of the type of blend I love. And the icing on the carrot cake is the organic grapes. — 5 days ago

Was this a TJ’s wine?

Spottswoode

Napa County Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2007

While being a HUGE wine - making you want to brush your teeth after a glass!!! - this wine is remarkably silky and smooth with vanilla, black cherries, and well integrated tannins. An absolutely wonderful experience today, but clearly still on the upswing of its maturity curve. — 7 days ago

I actually got into this for a night or too. I like it on the rocks—one or two big ones. The caraway vibe is strong but there’s hints of licorice too. Appealing and refreshing. — 20 days ago
