Cantine San Marzano

Rhys Vineyards

Family Farm Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Pop and pour, but notes from 1.5 hrs open. This might bey favorite incarnation of this wine so far. Also apparently the vintage with the least whole cluster (15%). On the nose: lovely perfumed nose with sweet red raspberry, wild strawberry, loads of spice, soft herbal.notes. On the palate: excellent acidity and density: soft grapeseed notes, dark black raspberry, and soft, finely grained tannin on the finish. — 16 days ago

Les Enfants Terribles Evangelho Vineyard Old Vines Carignane 2016

Thinks drinks like a light, racier version of Evangelho Zin. It’s effortless but with striking depth and clarity.. Vines planted in the 1890s. Killer. — 13 days ago

@Adam Beasley @Rhonely Boy Agreed. One of my favorite value producers, anywhere.

Matt Parish

The 24 Contra Costa County Zinfandel 2019

This hides its 15.5 very well. Nose has blackberry fruit and cracked black peppercorn in equal measure. In the mouth it’s expansive, with excellent concentration and a rich texture that hides the soft tannin very well. Long, pure finish. Nicely done. — 5 days ago

Dark deep purple. Oaky with blackberry flavor. My favorite winery and wine. Just the right complexity and fruitiness in full bodied California cab. — a day ago

McEvoy Ranch Vineyard Syrah 2018

A pleasant surprise. One of the better CA Syrahs I’ve had. Everything is really in balance. Lots of intense red fruit, game, smoke complexity in a very elegant and long finish. Would definitely buy this again. — 9 days ago
