Brosseau Vineyard Sparkling Wine 2013

I am trying to figure out how to place this. It is a sparkling wine, reflective of a fairly mineral but not austere chard. There’s not much autolysis. I keep waiting for that familiar yeastiness that characterizes Champagne and I don’t get much. I don’t dislike this. I just find it hard to place. — 6 days ago

White Hawk Vineyard Syrah 2014

Magnum, not much Info on the Label, all I know for sure is that I prefer it over Reynvaan, this is more full bodied with the same funk. — 18 days ago

Oh really? Not had any young Lillian, but the older ones I’ve had were great. Love Reynvaan too...

Just had the 12 Stone essence yesterday, so doing back to back I was able to see the difference,
Just a bigger wine like Cayuse, but not as big as Alban

Santa Margarita Ranch Zinfandel 2016

Dark purple in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, wildflowers, alcohol, spices, chocolates, mocha, coffee, peppercorn, earth, black tea and light vegetables.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, sweet spice box, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, wood and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice surprise. A great Zinfandel from Paso Robles, California. Very fruity and nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Not too complex, but very enjoyable.

This Single Vineyard Zinfandel is good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up (90 minutes). Easy drinking and enjoyable by itself or with food and would pair very well with a burger.

I paired it with light appetizers and good friends.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Wirz Vineyard Riesling 2017

2017 Bedrock Riesling from Cienega Valley AVA. Planted in 1963 and dry-farmed. Apparently it’s the second oldest riesling vineyard in California. “Own-rooted in decomposed granite and limestone lovingly tended by the magnificently mustached Pat Wirz,” according to Morgan Twain-Peterson MW. Loaded with flavor. Lime oil and granny smiths with a hint of honey, and lots of rocks. A steal at $25. — 2 days ago

Paso Robles Rosé Blend 2017

66 percent Grenache the rest Mourvèdre damn I wanna do a Tavel v Paso Robles rosé comparison. This is good. Floral and coral and super ripe citrus-y (ruby grapefruit) stony fun. It is not my number one Paso rosé but very grateful to @Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum for pointing me to this. Very valid I should taste more of their offerings. — 4 days ago

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum follow up to last comment I made I discovered the ultimate carb/wine ratio is one toaster’s worth toast to one glass. In case you were wondering.

Central Coast Sparkling Chenin Blanc 2016

Wild spirited and structured at once. Hazy pale yellow and completely unfiltered with aromas of skunky sour dough on a very dank nose of lemon and ginger. Fine bubbles. Flavors of high pitched baked lemon, honey, pear, and a dry finish of chalky limestone and spicy ginger notes. Always on hand - a staple. — 19 days ago
