Pinot Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Aromatic nose of currents and blackberries but fall flat quickly...short finish but grows longer in a short time. — 2 years ago

After an hour or so this wine opened and really improved. It’s now a full bodied PN with a pleasant finish..

Kick Ranch Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Finally it feels like a real summer weekend in the Northeast. Time to break out the SBs. This one is new to me (though I've enjoyed their delicious Syrah from their Pritchard Hill estate). Loads of citrus, honeysuckle and a touch of bitterness (pith?) on the finish. There's a nice viscosity to the wine - it's not exactly creamy, but not overly crisp either - somewhere in between I guess. Strong acid you can really feel on the jaw and that leaves your mouth watering. — 4 years ago

Atlas Peak Syrah 2010

2010 continues to improve with age. Great memory from when I first tried this at the vineyard with Eric. — 5 years ago

Carneros Pinot Noir

If pinot noir is feminine, this one is a stunning beauty.

Gorgeous almost luminescent magenta in the glass with a nose that is equal parts floral and candied red fruit and leather funk. This drinks like a silky pomegranate aril with a touch of cola nut and vanilla thrown in.

Carneros fruit is astounding when done right, y'all.

Estate Syrah 2010

Graphite, jet black fruit and charcoal on the nose. Palate is more generous with the fruit, followed by black tea on the finish, but the tannins don't bring it all together as harmoniously as an elite wine. Still very tasty though. — 5 years ago
