@Boxer Briefs Briefs it does not surprise me at all. Winemaker @Joseph Davis Davis is producing wine to do exactly that.


Hommage a Max Syrah 2005

Fun afternoon at Classic with great company. Glad you could join us Bryan.

Brett with bandaid upfront on the nose. Very underripe fruit. Tart. Barnyard. Herbal with little to zero savory notes. Some iron too. Tobacco wrapped licorice. Still some great acidity. Not getting any better, so drink up.

Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2005

Hello whole cluster! Wow, this is so delicious right now. For my palate preference, I enjoy whole cluster pinots with a bit of age on them. Very floral and potpourri dominant aromatics. It’s got that streak of pepper/green stem down the middle of the palate sandwiched between underripe blackberry and sage. — 5 months ago

This one flirts the line between way too early to drink and right on the money to drink right now. Hard to explain. One thing is for sure: whole cluster fermentation can really mess with the mind. This is a dark black cherry with a little bit of cola and brambly and somewhat green earthy and vegetal notes that dominate the front and middle. The middle is almost medicinal. Finishes with a lot of power yet still has good acidity and finesse. I really don't think there is any hurry to drink this wine quite honestly. It will probably be around for the next five to seven years, although when it drinks like this, you might as well enjoy it!

Pisoni Vineyard Monterey Pinot Noir 2001

Full of energy with high toned red fruits....would never guess this was 18 yrs old except for its color which is fading. Great wine with lots of life left — 2 months ago

Santa Ynez Valley Syrah 2011

As good a Syrah as you will ever have. Reminds me of a great Bordeaux but slightly less dry. Would be a beautiful accompaniment to nearly any meat-based dinner and would probably pair well with red-sauced based pasta as well. Just superb. — 6 months ago
