Estate Bottled Anderson Valley Dry Gewürztraminer 2019

Pale white, sparkling clarity. Grapefruit rind in nose with a hint of sulfite. Grapefruit flavor with orange finish, lactic aftertaste. Subtle but varietally on point. Slightly thick mouthfeel. — 4 days ago

Love this one


Hacienda Secoya Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Beautiful and very Anderson Valley. The strawberry, rhubarb, plum and cherry fruit is deep, dark, layered and rich without being heavy or jammy at all. Crushed velvet. A little mocha and cola, and of course soil tones as this is Ceritas after all — 13 days ago

Côte de Boont Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

I do love this producer. First timer, found great fruit and learning from a sense of what he could achieve if he cares enough — 3 days ago

Monument Tree Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

I’m biased but the crown jewel is performing very well tonight. Brown sugar, bright raspberry, basil. Firm tannin and surprisingly strong length. Precise on the palate with a very subtle menthol finish. — 12 days ago

Savoy Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Rob N

Wet volcanic rock, burgundy, gasoline, fireworks. Just a flavor explosion; less cherry and acid than the Peay. As good, probably better. I had the ‘13 of the Savoy in Hawaii, and it was also excellent. “Tastes like a quarry” — MRM — a day ago

L'Ermitage Brut Anderson Valley Chardonnay Blend 2005

Shay A

After opening a 2012 two weeks ago, I wanted to check in with the 2005. I also open a vintage L’Ermitage every 4th of July (as well as a bottle of zin), as it’s hard to beat this American sparkler at the price (and if you can, tell me).

Again, just a total QPR winner as evidence by this being 16yrs young. I believe this is the “oldest” L’Ermitage I’ve had, and my love for this sparkler is cemented. At its age, it really hasn’t oxidized much at all. I get a kiss of an autolysis flair here, but it’s more just rich and flamboyant. Yeasty/toasty. Toffee, honeycomb (always get that with these), sea salt and cinnamon topped golden delicious apple. Added notes of bruised pear and caramel round out the rich, yet vibrant, finish. The fact that these (yes, this vintage) can be picked up locally at $45-50 is just crazy. Takes a lot of restraint to not buy all they have.

Hardly terrible…much better than it sounds. I have never had a bad wine from Anthill Farms.

Rhys Vineyards

Bearwallow Vineyard Ultra Brut Sparkling White Blend

Notes from 24 hrs open. Notes similar to last time, but better today than yesterday. Palate shows slightly disjointed: bitter grapefruit and cranberry, but mousse is a bit harsh. — 21 days ago
