The Diddler Merkin Vineyards White Blend 2017

70/30 blend of Malavasia Bianca and Albariño from my home state of Arizona. Grapes from Willcox, vinted in Jerome, bottled in Camp Verde. That’s a lot of trucking, folks. Yellow-green, excellent clarity, clean nose. Floral, honeycomb and citrus flavor, almost tart, almost dry, apricot-citrus finish with some skin astringency. 13.2% alc/vol suggests early harvesting. Exceeded my expectations. Present from my brother who had similar feelings about the wine, saying “You’ve got to try this”. Not great, but much better than you’d think — 5 days ago

Anubis Arizona Red Blend 2015

Tonight I have opened the 2015 Caduceus Anubis Red Blend. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 20% Petit Sirah from Wilcox, AZ hand picked from vineyards at 4300 feet and aged for 18 months in French Oak Casks.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, black pepper, vanilla, cinnamon, alcohol and oak.

On the palate I am finding black cherry, blackberry, green bell pepper, black currant, licorice, baking spice and rich soil.

This wine is medium to full bodied with medium to + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead into a medium to long dark fruit finish. My first Arizona wine and not too bad. The weekend starts tomorrow so please be safe and have a great time. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Merkin Vineyards Chupacabra Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2018

Serious juice here: legit AZ wine from the guy from Korn - this is Syrah dominant blend that was like squid ink, deep dark rich density of flavor & impressive extraction - even downright elegant. Huge blackberry / plum / fig compote mingled w/persistent white pepper. Ultra smooth finely grained tannins. The only thing stopping this was the acidity was slightly out of balance. Nevertheless it was very enjoyable! — 2 months ago
