Alpine Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Very good pinot. Hard to tell it is from California...cool fruit and has that menthol taste i usually associate with the Vougeot wines from Vougeraie but also has that orange peel flavor giving it a very special character — 3 days ago

@Hanibal as tu plus aimé que Littorai? C’est quand même plus cher

@Mario Vaillancourt oui je dirais à ce stade le Rhys est meilleur mais il a 5 ans de plus derrière la cravate et je pense c’est une grande raison pourquoi

Alfaro Vineyard Grüner Veltliner 2018

This is an enjoyable, respectable wine, but not what I’m looking for in Grüner Veltliner. I’m missing crisp acidity, mineral notes and a little pepper. Maybe the vintage had some influence? I don’t think the oak helps, even though it’s partial and neutral. I’ll stick with the grower‘s rendition. — 9 days ago

This was dynamite. Ripe yet tart blue fruits with fine grained tannins. Enjoyable after 30 minutes in the glass. — 7 days ago

Horseshoe Vineyard Chardonnay 2010

“Piss” yellow color. Faint bubbles of effervescence. Burnt salted caramel nose. Candied lemon/lime. Distinctly front- and mid-palette loaded. Lemon curd. Very long finish. Excellent freshness for a 10 year old. Quite good, though Aubert is comparable with half the age. — 15 days ago

Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Damn I should have bought a case of this from LB. Big dense fruit, bright, rocks, tannin. 13.7%. Looking forward to revisiting this down the road. — 17 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

A blend of 68% Cab Sauv, 20% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 2% Cab Franc, dark Ruby with aromas of ripe dark red fruits, cigar-box spice, floral and cedar notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry and black cherry with notes of licorice, pepper, vanilla and toasty spice. Fine tannins, integrating well with oak, good overall balance, long finish ending with fruit, floral and sweet oak. Great now, still has long aging potential left! — 17 days ago
