Tamber Bey

Deux Chevaux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Tamber Bey 2015 cabernet sauvignon. I am trying this wine for the first time and it is fantastic on day two after opening the bottle last night. We have that typical fields of Lavendar and wild violets on the bouquet. The palate begins with amazing dark berries and a little splash of cherry. It’s so good I’m going to the website now to order some more. Now comes vanilla, molasses, leather, and a very oaky-Earthy mid pallet. The finale really brings in the peppery and dry finish in the entire mouth. WOW! This is a beautiful Cabernet I’m going to order of the 2017 Oakville and compare. — 7 days ago

Liparita

V Block Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Been enjoying different vintages of Liparita since purchasing a wak of these on auction. They’ve proven excellent esp given the price pt, with 2012 the winner thus far. But generally very well balanced across the board. — a month ago

Tate

Spring Street Yountville Chardonnay 2019

My first Tate. Enjoying the weight and the right amount of oak. 14.2% abv appears a bit higher than previous vintages. Give it time to open / this is the 2019. With air it really unveiled a lot more complexity than at first. — 7 days ago

Soft tannins and full of dark fruit. Made a lovely red wine sauce for dinner and finished the bottle with my tenderloin roast. Want more now! — 2 months ago

Doubleplus Wines

Yountville Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Pale lemon in color.

Strong nose of gooseberry, white flowers, lemons, citrus, limes, light tropical fruits, green apples and spices.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with lemon juice, green apples, grapefruits, herbs, spices and white pepper.

Medium length on the finish with tart lemons.

This is a nice surprise. Not your usual Napa Sauvignon Blanc. Feels like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with less tropical fruits.

Simpler out of the bottle and really changed after 30 minutes of airtime.

Nicely balanced and refreshing. Not bitter, which I liked. Tangy and interesting.

Good by itself or with food and would pair nicely with seafood. I had it all by itself, by the pool.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$30.

Palmer & Co

Reserve Champagne Blend Rosé

Shay A
9.2

I picked up 6 of these and 6 of the Palmer BdB last Fall and just polished off my last one of the Brut Reserve, as these come across as more accessible and less complex than their BdB sibling.

These champagnes are fairly new to the US (though not new across the pond), so I’m starting to see them more and more. This champagne reminds me of Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve “lite”. It pours golden in the glass with plenty of toasty/yeasty notes, alongside truffle honeycomb and sea salt. The palate trends more towards the rich side yet finishes lighter than expected. Some nougat, golden delicious apple, caramel and lemon pastry. Not the most complex champagne, but it’s enjoyable on its own and has been a solid everyday/house champagne the last 6-8 months.

Papago Brewing Co.

Orange Blossom Mandarin Wheat

It smells and tastes of mandarin, it’s lightly alcoholic, it’s a pleasant light wheat beer, lightly hopped, when it’s hot and you are dehydrated, which happens in the desert six months of the year, this is a better option than any sports drink. Sure, no electrolytes here, but it tastes a dang sight better than those sports ades. And orange blossoms? Very Arizona. Drink local — 8 days ago
