Anderson Valley Riesling 2017

Yet another vintage - 2017. Pale yellow white, excellent clarity. Floral, piney and vanilla notes in nose. Melon-cantaloupe, pineapple and stone fruit flavors, wow. Slight-to-moderate skin astringency on front of tongue in finish with citric-orange-grapefruit rind and pineapple flavors and tartness in the aftertaste. Dryish, good acidity, rounded mouthfeel. A refreshing fruity Riesling so typically well done here, though I’m hopeful the astringency moderates with a bit more aeration. After one hour, astringency moderated, and lactic character in finish emerges. Wait an hour on this one if you can. — 11 days ago

Castello di Amorosa

Morning Dew Ranch Pinot Noir Rosato 2018

This is new vintage from Cresto di’Oro (Three Arrows) ranch/vineyard in the sub-AVA Green Valley of Russian River, Sonoma County. I am so impressed with this Pinot Noir rose. The color is like rose gold/copper which is so pretty. The aroma of fresh lime and lemon, white flowers, juicy strawberry and raspberry popped out right away after a swirl. The palate was so rounded with white peach, grapefruit, and melon finishing up with such a nice crisp taste, no tart or bitter taste at all that I found in most of dry roses. It’s a lovely rose that I didn’t expect to like 👍 — 13 days ago

Rivers-Marie

Bearwallow Vineyard Pinot Noir

The darker side of Rivers Marie. Where all of the Occidental bottlings share red fruited characteristics this is more black fruits and fresh earth. The supporting acidity and the hours it still takes to open up give me hope that it should continue to develop in bottle. — 7 days ago

"Les Voisins" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Really one of the best rosés I’ve had. Has good body for a light wine and definitely get the Pinot grape. Very smooth, not acidic but crisp, pear and maybe some sweeter berries like strawberries. Worth looking for it! — 5 days ago

The Corners Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Beautiful Anderson Valley Pinot. Corners has great pedigree and this wine delivers. Loads of raspberry and cherry on the palate. This wine gained a perfect tannin structure with a little bottle age. Yummy. — 9 days ago
