I think that I have tasted 200+ wines in the last week alone. This one stood out. A generous gift from a Winebeserker friend in CA; Ryan Curry, who also sell this wine. Check their website! This is serious stuff. Exciting and elegant given its weight of fruit density. Enjoyed it over four days and it was constantly exciting. Don miss out! Best from 2021 thru 2030+ — 9 days ago

Calistoga Zinfandel

I moved past Zinfandel years ago. I am know giving it another look. This is a marvelous lush fruit forward wine. Hints of cherry with great tannins. Really like this 1.5L. My mind is opening to something besides Cab. — 19 days ago

Calistoga Malbec Rosé 2016

Silky and tart, like watermelon lemonade. More rich and luscious and hefty than I typically associate with rosé. I could drink this every day of summer. — 15 days ago

Fontanella Family Wines

Premiere Napa Valley The Grade Cellars Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009

Decanted for about two hours and is showing a darker fruit profile compared to a 2007 Melka Profile Cabernet. This youthful nose is blackberry, black licorice, plum middle, a little bit of herbal influence in the middle. Surprisingly rounded edges on the front. Lots of pepper on the finish as well, finish showing a little more jagged quality. This is an incredibly complex wine that has a other 15 years easy. — 19 days ago

Premier Napa Valley Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Nice. Still holding on to a ruby hue, a little green pepper, mint and dark fruits, medium acid and and still some smooth tannins. But of earth & mushroom. — 16 days ago

Venge Vineyards

Bone Ash Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Super fruit forward but there is a hit of salinity that makes this sail. I also just love how sexy the bottles are. A solid and balanced brew. Never had a bad Venge. That being said I’ve only ever had two but both made me want more. — 16 days ago

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum I liked it a lot! Fruity, yet, but not in an overwhelming way

Grgich Hills Estate

Miljenko's Vineyard Petite Sirah 2013

Deep dark color. Dark fruit on the nose. Incredibly smooth. Drinking well now, but will wait to open another one. I preferred the 2012. Paired well with grilled maple brine birkshire pork chops — 4 days ago

Vermeil Wines

Frediani Vineyard Calistoga Syrah 2015

Wonderful dark fruit with blackberries and cassis dominating the nose. The black fruit is a complex blend of velvet, leather and oak on the palette. The finish is lingering with pepper underscored with soft tannins and a slight taste of horseradish cheese. — 18 days ago
