@Delectable Wine : This is the III Rows Sauvignon Blanc. It wasn’t in the database.
Another Wednesday Wine Committee lunch, this time hosted by my buddy @Will Adams ! As always, all wines are tasted blind. Great job Will!
III Rows is a fairly new project. I’ve met the owners and enjoyed the cab, but this was my first white from them. Winemaker was from Duckhorn up until 1-2yrs ago.
The nose on this screamed west coast Cali SB. Very reminiscent of Merry Edwards with the explosive tropical fruit notes and even some white flower. However, the palate had very low acidity...as in almost zero. My initial guess was older Merry Edwards but then I changed it to white Bordeaux. Got the grape right, at least. — 5 days ago
Another fantastic sour from Firestone Walker, the UnderCurrants is terrific. Nose is loaded with aromas of dried berries, black currants (shocking), and a subtle funk that really brings it all together. Great tartness on the palate, but with a delicacy that’s really impressive. Great stuff! — 3 days ago
Yeah, not sure what the “pro” rating of 9.1 is all about. Probably tried it too young. The last time I had this was 2015 and it is SO much better. Just look at that honeyed color! Fantastic aromas of dried lemon peel, hints of vanilla, and white flowers. Impeccably balanced (but does need to be dropped siginificantly below cellar temp - say to 50 F - for it to come into focus. Takes about 30min in the glass to express, then it is awesome. Fantastic stuff! — 17 hours ago
Blackberry jam and lingering campfire incense nose. Pie. Pie. Blackberry Pie. Crusty and crumbly and baked to perfection. Berries burst upon lips' touch. Dessert in a glass, but by no means sweet. Highly astringent, succinctly slicing that pie on the finish.
Decanted briefly, but may certainly be decently liberally with gusto! — 13 hours ago
A good summer red. Medium bodied, soft tannins and spicy! Flavors of cherry and not too juicy. Everything the website says about this one is true. It’s also affordable, running around $10. Gimme more! #badandboozypod #winereviews #winehoes #delectable — 12 days ago

Heard about this wine but my first time having it. This was the last glass in a flight of 4 reds and it deserved to be enjoyed last. Extracted, concentrated and big. My guess here was a cab/zin Blend from Cali. A lot of lush and ripe fruit to go along with cedar and fig type notes. Stylistically, I’d enjoy these younger rather than aging them. Incredibly easy to drink. — 5 days ago
Decanted 6 hrs and slow-oxed in bottle another 8 hrs before serving. Some heat when I first opened and tanning were grippy. By the time we served this had completely transformed and was extremely open and smooth. It’s still to young but with time to open up these can drink great in their youth. Always a treat to drink a SQN. — a day ago
