Mariah Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

Not even close, Delectable. This is the first vintage from Eglatine Chaffour from the Mariah Vineyard in the Mendocino Ridge AVA and here’s to hoping she makes many more. An ethereal texture rarely found outside of Burgundy. Perfectly ripe red and black fruit, black and roobois tea notes. — 10 days ago

Pinot Noir Temperance Hill Vineyard 2017

The ‘Temperance Hill Vineyard’ is a storied, higher elevation site in the Eola-Amity Hills, farmed by Dal Crisp. Once on the nose this takes on layers of tart pomegranate seed and orange rind alongside damp earthy undertones. The palate is fresh and marvelously terroir-driven with its salty undertones. The freshness and rich red fruit profile impresses here with lighter suggestions of white truffle shavings that all meld together. With beautiful length, this outstanding new Eola-Amity Hills. Bottling will enjoy a long life ahead of it. Drink 2021-2033- 93

Select Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir 2013

What a rollercoaster, biblical vintage, and drinking now it’s so interesting. Deft balance of acid and fruit and texture. Toss in a little VA and a whisp of EA and then mushroom forest floor and no apparent oak. Black and blue fruit and a focus of tannin in the finish with some depth of flavor. Can’t believe this vintage gave us this. — 19 days ago

Three Valleys Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2017


Not sure if Draper is still making these wines, but Ridge has been so consistent & solid over the years... and this affordable kitchen sink blend is delicious: dark & rich, big extraction here w/mouth coating tannins and gobs of brambly red & black berry fruit. Def some oak in this bad boy, hi ABV as well. Bit unruly right now - probably needs a nap for a few years. — a day ago

Estate Chardonnay 2018

Ming L

100% fruits from the famed Monte Bello vineyard. Ripe and oaky, but in a restrained and elegant way. This reminds me a lot of the Napa Valley bottling from Far Niente, only better.

Shake Ridge Ranch Mourvedre

yes, this is a photo of a computer image. tasted as part of a Mourvèdre wine group tasting via zoom, wines portioned into woozies. 2018v. super aromatic, raspberry/cranberry juice, fresh leather, violet. palate texture is silky, light but complex and flavorful, acid medium +, long tannins- just a bit of grip. fantastic — 3 days ago
