Para Maria de los Tecolotes Ballard Canyon Syrah 2016

Bright fruit. Slight smoke. Easy to drink. The least expensive of our tasting and predictably the most approachable now. This was great for $20 bucks. — 6 days ago

Alta Colina

Old 900 Estate Syrah

At an Alta Colina winemaker dinner last night (thanks Maggie Tillman!) we opened the 2015 of this Syrah. It was a beautiful wine grown on a north facing hillside in Paso. This one just three years older really revealed where that 2015 will hopefully go. The 2012 was more integrated and the richness of its flavors more developed. The Tillman’s make a beautiful wine! — 21 hours ago

Dragonette Cellars

Seven Syrah 2015

Whoaaaa Dragonette per the usual I could drink a gallon. All the classic Syrah fun: ripe blackberries and black pepper, blueberry jam on acid. The darkness! The acid! All pipes up here. Get in. — 19 days ago

Reva Alban Estate Vineyard Syrah 2011

My first Reva and honestly I expected more. I like the “restraint” of the vintage but just left me wondering what all the fuss is about — 19 hours ago

11 wasn’t a great year for the Reva according to the Critics who score, Parker & Jeb. Plus it still needs time, the early 2000’s I’ve had were great

Bonny Doon Vineyard

I’m Not Drinking Any £#ƒ€!¢ Merlot! Blend 2016

These are Night 2 notes. A little smoky underbrush note accents some nice plummy fruit. Very Right Bank-like. Everything in balance in the mouth. Some cracked-stone minerality introduces the fruit. A little pepperiness in the mouth from the alcohol shows through, but it may simply be because it’s warm tonight. A bit of tannin to add some structure, but the finish is all beautifully pure and elegant Merlot fruit. Great value. — 11 days ago
