Mr. Akiyoshi’s single-vineyard Clarksburg Cabernet is a triumph. It is a big red, but smooth and sophisticated enough to be a solid cocktail wine. It has bright cherry and plum fruits laid expertly over a complex tannic finish, showcasing the Miller bros. unique terroir. — 22 days ago
Lovely, smooth, oaky wine, decent length. Wine tasting night — 21 days ago
This rich white wine is steeped in fresh-baked apple pie flavors with hints of spice from David’s choice of oak and a fullness brought out by aging. A bright, lively finish makes this a perfect food-friendly wine. Pair it up with savory chicken and fettuccine in a creamy cheese sauce.

Nice fruity petite sirah. — 16 days ago
I had the ‘15 counterpart, the Syrah, about a year ago and was shocked at how accessible it was. This isn’t as open, but it’s not far off. The bottle was poured blind to a group of 5-7 of us. I called this 5yr old SQN Grenache. For my taste, nobody in the new world can do Grenache like Manfred. Seductively aromatic and spice driven, showing cracked black pepper, spicy rhubarb and red fruits with herbs de Provence. Lifted profile due to the use of whole cluster. Great acidity. The dominant notes of red fruits are highlighted by just a touch of blue and black fruits, with dark cocoa, potpourri and cherry jerky. A baby, but a glimpse at a monster in 5-7yrs.
