Another one from a few weeks ago. Killed it with a seared tri tip! Big wine, loaded with dark berry and spice. Awesome QPR. — a month ago

Gift from a friend in 2017, finally got round to trying it - lovey, round fully flavour with no sharp edges. — 12 days ago


Gran Reserve Petite Sirah

100% Petite Sirah from Murphys in the Sierra foothills. A little high in alcohol at 15.2% but definitely the best PS I’ve had from that area. Compares well to Concannon and Livermore area PS which are my favorites. — 9 days ago

Smithereens El Dorado Red Blend 2016

Basically a Cote du Rhône from the Sierra foothills. This surprised me. Very very well-made and tasty wine. Not overripe, red fruit gets a bit candied with air, has some elegance. +1 point for great QPR (by California standards anyway) — 12 days ago

Amador County Chenin Blanc 2015

Medium green gold in glass. The nose is ripe Amalfi lemon with a hint of lime. A bit more weight on the mouth than expected, but smooth and lively on the swallow... and amazing complexity of tart citrus and cream. These wines always bring a smile to my face and a lift to my spirit. Kudos, Tegan. — 2 days ago

Milliaire Cellars

Vineyard Selections Old Vine Zinfandel 2012

Dark impossible to see through color of Mission fig skins. Smells like more savory, dark red, black fruits. French figs and not very sweet blackberry jams. Taste is amazing. Dry, kinda jammy, Zinful. It’s also got olives and black, ripe plums. An absolute perfect expression of the varietal that matches chocolate and black sweet cherries as great wonders of human experience. — 23 days ago
