Finca Las Moras

Alma Mora Reserva Malbec 2018

Um vinho bem intenso! A cor é forte, mas já sem o brilho rubi. O aroma é bem alcóolico e isso se reflete no sabor. Ao beber o sabor é incorpado e forte, sobresaindo a queimação do álcool e um traço de tanino no centro da língua e na mucosa abaixo do lábio. Este vinho pode acompanhar bem um prato mais forte, como um molho fungui ou carne com bastante molho. — 10 days ago

McHenry Vineyard

Swan Clone Pinot Noir 2012

No formal notes as I drank this bottle in a line-up of other great wines but oh man, woman and child...these are killer right now. Balance and authenticity typical of McHenry; leaning more towards the darker edge of the red fruit profile. This has depth that I rarely find in Pinot Noir short of drinking one of Hubert Lignier's stunners from M-S-D. I realize that seems like an exaggeration but it's the honest to God truth. Structure that will allow this to last for another decade and possibly longer. My WOTN with the 2014 Rafanelli Zinfandel and NV Christopher Tynan "Le Sucrier Velours" a close second (or third, if you will). Only 96 cases produced. — 14 days ago

Sandlands

San Benito County Mataro 2015

Ripe nose of black berries, cherries, and plum with a hint of leather and smoke. More weight than I expected with vibrant, rounded tannins. Complex with not a hint of jamminess or oiliness. Worked well with comfort roasted chicken and Mac and cheese. Surprisingly dry but juicy...I suspect another few years of life, though pleasant now! — 9 days ago

So cool to see some Sandlands wine with a little bit of age on them. Thanks for sharing your notes!

Rhys Vineyards

Horseshoe Vineyard Chardonnay 2012

From 375ml in a Grassl Mineralité, on the nose it is a dead ringer for 2006 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, with lemon, apple, and a touch of hazelnut. Loaded with acidity, it.benefits from air and warming up some on the glass. — 2 days ago

I love it. Carnal, wild - my favorite of Bea’s reds as the alcohol is balanced. VA is present and borders on too much but doesn’t get there — 11 days ago

Harrington Wines

Calleri Vineyard Falanghina 2018

Medium yellow w/ a touch of hazy sediment. Shy nose with quite an initial medium weight punch on the palate...tart lemon pith and dry sea salt indicative of the Italian varietal. Lovely food wine that takes on gravitas and interest as it warms. I am becoming a fan of new world examples of the grape. — 10 days ago

Finca Las Moras

Los Intocables Black Malbec 2017

Выпил 31.03.20 бокал этого мальбека урожая 17 года в гордом одиночестве в ресторане Фабрик. Что могу сказать - вполне рабочий и вовсе не дешевый. Но к пицце подошел вполне. — 9 days ago

Kutch Wines

Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

Zoom group tasting with Jamie Kutch tonight. Easily one of the handful of top California chard’s I’ve ever had. The yin/yang of power, alcoholic restraint, and sheer complexity is mind-blowing. Granny Smith apples, Meyer lemon and tart Yuzu notes float above a solid foundation of barrel weight and acidic structure. I just want to keep sticking my nose in the glass all night. The finish is long, generous, and morish. Thank you Jamie for your passion and drive to produce wines at this level. — 12 days ago
