This Lodi Zinfandel carries a medium tint in the glass and smells of red fruit and black pepper. The palate is fruity with a savory note to go along with it. A zippy acidity is fresh, while the tannins are quite firm. My pork chop paired very well with it. — 11 days ago
Amazingly beautiful and soft. After decanting, it took a few minutes to really open. Eucalyptus, black pepper, menthol, and faint blackberry brambles. Brick red coloration. Worth the wait! — 12 days ago
Here’s a secret: Pinot Grigio from Oregon is absolutely killer. The more so with this Ramato, an Italian speciality. Color is amber pink gemstone. Unreal. Caramelized nose. Sweet earthy hints. Super vivacious acid. Tingly finish. I could drink this every day. — 5 days ago
Big big bouquet of dark fruit.
Dusty plums upfront with a leather tobacco dry dry finish. Definitely old world earth in here.

Grapefruit, lemon candy, peach, apple and hints of honeydew melon. Electric acidity and good minerality. — 2 days ago
Pretty much the gold standard in Pinot. Bought a half case of this from Vinopolis in Portland and wished I’d bought a full one. The Deep Roots Coalition back label reminds me of the way Cayuse vines have to grow deep roots. Somehow the best wines come from grapes that vines that have to struggle. Burgundy, eat your heart out! — 16 days ago
Bouquet of dusty cherries. Old world dusty plums, leather in the middle. With a medium tannins at the end. — 10 days ago
