Pinot Noir 2020

Delectable Wine

This 2020 Pinot Noir opens with zesty raspberry, blood orange and rose aromas, along with hints of cola and baking spices. Juicy, seamless and energetic in style, it offers sweet red berry and floral pastille flavors. Fine-grained tannins shape the finish, with spice-driven persistence. $24.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, May 2022) — 4 days ago

Le Cigare Orange 2020

Orange, excellent clarity. Pepper note in nose. Not much flavor initially, just a hint of sweetness, finish of tangerine peel and white pepper. Rounded mouthfeel with some mild skin astringency, no surprise for an orange or extended skin contact wine. After a couple of hours, I coaxed some peach flavor out of it; might need some air, more likely I overchilled it. Reasonably priced, decent value. 80/10/10 blend of Grenache Blanc, Grenache and Orange Muscat. Beware of strange dirigibles in your vineyard while you are at it… (check the fine print on their label) — 7 days ago

Not so alien contact, I suspect

Jonata Winery

La Sangre de Jonata Ballard Canyon Syrah 2015

1 hour decant. Old meets new. Striking aromatics of thyme, rosemary, sage, and turkey drippings, sitting atop roasted plum and bramble. Rich and ripe with a plush, velvety mouthfeel. Syrah and Merlot? — a day ago

Sine Qua Non

Le Supplément Syrah 2013

On my list of favorite Syrahs! A beautiful dark magenta color. Blackberry tart cherry, floral aromas jump from the glass with secondary notes of pencil lead and sandalwood and hints of bacon fat and milk chocolate floating. Taste - a smooth creamy and richly structured wine. Blueberry and cherry fruits still dominate with pepper, crushed rock and tar following. The finish is long with lingering notes of bitter chocolate and espresso and a touch of heat on the end but overall flavors are well integrated. Should open up even more throughput the evening. Luv the label. — 17 days ago

Daou Vineyards

Soul Of A Lion Adelaida District Red Blend 2019

The wine is very dark, so inky that light does not pass through it. The nose is fresh, riddled with black and blue berries, clove, cinnamon and cedar. On the palate, the rich fruit is out front with a savory backbeat trailing behind. The tannins are firm, while the finish is long and extremely tasty. — 13 days ago

Beautifully evolved almost chambertin like. Still deep and with some viscosity but showing a lot of grand cru burgundy notes. Power and finesse. Really glad I waited 10 years on this puppy. Awesome @Jeff Pisoni — 7 days ago

Williams Selyem Central Coast Pinot Noir 2015: Medium-light bodied. Well balanced. Red fruit dominate followed by blueberry, spice, oak & earth. For me, first time trying & enjoying their Central Coast Pinot. Not the most complex but absolutely delicious, delightful and easy to drink! Enjoy the nice weather & happy Sunday to all!
