May I introduce you to the skills of professional wine person, Michael Cruse. He’s a wizard - people think of him first for his sparkling, but this deeply complex bone dry Muscat from the Rorick vineyard makes it’s way into five total freaking barrels and he’s selling it for about $29. This is an underpriced very good buy.
Ambitious, big, intense, and if you find some fault here I’d love to know what it is. Unfiltered colors of pale hay. Your first impression is definitely lychee, then peach, tangerine, vanilla oak. — 4 days ago
I had 2017 vintage Gino Rinaldi single vineyard and it was excellent. Fruit forward l, but balanced well with oak so not jammy. Delicious! — 10 days ago
Zin and ribs last night and this wine paired perfectly - intense powerful with some extraction evident but when paired with finger sucking Rufus Teague sauce ribs - bam and fireworks - yummy and smiles all around - this wine could last a few years but why for it is so ready NOW — 6 days ago
Fruit forward and surprisingly smooth and drinkable for a Zin. Lovely. — a day ago
Purchased a bottle from the reserve list at the winery earlier this year. Consumed with miso sablefish and lentils with cherries and basil. Rich golden hue, cloudy honeycomb-like. Nose is like dried leaves and cider mill, fall like aromas. Hints of petrol & citrus. This just explodes with bitter apricot, citrus, intense acidity. Complex layers keep coming. Orange juice and zest in a sweet morning bun. Oxidative nuttiness like toasted salted almonds. Super long finish. Amazing stuff. — 12 days ago
