Monarch Mine Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2013

The most unusual Cab Franc I’ve come across. Pipe tobacco and pine needles. Really enjoyable, cerebral and a sure way to fuck up a blind tasting. — 3 days ago

Donkey & Goat

Stone Crusher Skin Ferment El Dorado Roussanne

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. — 6 days ago

Alder Yarrow

This is still one of California’s greatest terroir expressions. Stunning forest floor, cedar and potpourri aromas layered on cherry, dried red apple skin and that deep granitic minerality. Stunning. — 17 days ago
