This as dark of fruit as you can experience. Extremely darks currants, dark, dark, expresso, cedar plank, dry tobacco, crushed rocks, leather, graphite, dark rich earth and very dark florals. Hold this 20 years. It’s amazing. — 7 days ago

Robert Young Estate Winery

Alexander Valley Chardonnay 2016

Definitely not sub 90. Does it have that backbone and full throttle complexity of a Marcassin, Peter Michael, Aubert or Kistler chard? No. But, as far as Chardonnay goes this one is a pleaser at the $40 price point. Nose of basil and rosemary and limestone, honey and pear. Entry is rounded up front, entry with surprising acidity. Honey, peach, white wildflowers, honeysuckle, mango. Gets more mineral rich in the middle and finish. Impressive chard. I'd say this can hold 5 to 10 years easily. — 8 days ago

Wynns Coonawarra Estate

Black Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Elegant and rich cassis and black cherry, cedar, excellent french oak flavour. Dry, mid acidity and mid sweet tannin. Slightly closer to great Rioja. Hint of aged bouquet and can age more. ABV13.5% — 12 days ago

Estate Reserve Napa Valley Zinfandel 2014

This is about as elegant and “French” style a Zin as one can get. Nose has rich but restrained blackberry, a Bordeaux like cedar note, cassis, maple or hickory syrup, and a crushed stone thing. Concentrated but tidily-structured. This has the understated structure and coiled nature to last quite a while. — 15 days ago

Terrific Zinfandel. Finesse, fruit, a quick step. Not Lodi!

Fun Friday evening with great wines.

KB Pinot, with some years on it, can blossom nicely. Still sporting some cola notes, with candied black cherry and earthy/herbal aromatics. Dark cocoa covered black cherries, and a dense/rich mid palate. Drinking very nicely right now.

Bodegas del Palacio de Fefiñanes

Albariño de Fefiñanes III Año Rías Baixas Albariño 2014

Clear, straw yellow with stone tropical and citrus aromas and a bit of floral spice. On the palate rich flavors of green apple, lemongrass, lime, melon and hints of mango. Aged for 3 years on the lees and batonage, you can almost taste the stormy Atlantic. Well integrated acidity with a lingering finish ending with citrus and mineral notes. Very nice! — 21 days ago
