Dry Creek Valley Merlot 2010

Well cellar tracker is wrong. This could last another year or two. Lovely dark color. Took about an hour to really open up. Lots of dark fruit and a nice subtle kick towards the end. Lots of flavor to this one, can’t quite pick out everything. Nice wine. Glad we have one more bottle. — 4 days ago

I actually have an ‘11 Zin in the cellar. Tried one bottle, going to save the second for a little bit 😉

Meredith Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2017

It is a dark wine, and the nose is very expressive. Blackberry, cassis, vanilla, tea and a slight brambly note are present. On the palate, savory cola and oak spice get into the act, while the tannins are firm, but not overly so. The dark fruit is there, but the savory aspect of the flavor profile definitely leads the way. Have a juicy filet with this one - they deserve each other. — 6 days ago

Wilde Farm

Heritage Bedrock Vineyard Zinfandel Blend 2015

Smells of bright raspberry caramels.
How interesting.
bright fruits hit the tongue first - pomegranate fruit and seed, raspberry, both a bit unripe as it’s all highlights, and nothing dark, deep, or moody. Zippy jolly rancher green acidity to wrap it up.
A perfect Monday wine, really..
Stay healthy friends.

Four Brothers Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Tart red fruit nose of raspberry, cranberry, and cherry. Bright cherry, on the palate with cranberry, rhubarb, fresh blackberry, and white pepper. Medium minus tannins, medium alcohol, and high acid. A smooth, medium bodied pinot that matched grilled salmon perfectly. — 17 days ago

Compagni Portis Vineyard Gewürztraminer Blend 2018

An old gewurz-dominant field blend, that comes across especially perfumed and seemingly with a pinch of residual sugar. Simple yet abundantly interesting, and between the sweetness and nice acid backbone, this was a great partner to spicy curries. I enjoy Bedrock’s rendition more than Carlisle’s. — 3 days ago

Ahhhh this was so damn tasty!!!! Super clean, delineated, rich black fruits with perfectly balanced acidity. Mouth watering delights abound. I could see this getting even better. This was a stunner. — 11 days ago

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Smells of bright cherry, raspberry, dried strawberry and violets. Raspberry, plum and light cranberry with thyme and roses on the palate. Touch of anise, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger snap, but all pulled together by the fruit and a layer of saffron-apple. Uniquely delightful. Had with Sashimi, and wasabi to cut the fog, so held its own. #sojourncellars #russianrivervalley #russianriverpinot #rrv #sonoma #pinotnoir #pn — 7 days ago
