Contra Costa County Carignane 2020

First pour of the vintage for me. Smells like I just pulled fresh table grapes off the stem. Initial flavors of red fruit herbs and something floral, followed by unripe plum and cola. Light bodied but medium pigment extraction. After sixty minutes, flavors integrate. — 17 days ago

Home Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Fun to drink alongside the 2013 Horseshoe Pinot. The Home Vineyard Pinot has always presented more rustic and earthy flavors. Drink up. — a month ago

Contra Costa County Petite Sirah 2010

Beautiful label with original artwork. Aged well. Color is still very dark. Smells meaty. Floral too. Hints of violets. Berry melange. Flavors are dense and very tannic. Fairly complex and very chewy. Clean and clear with the lovely flavors. Plenty of savory and licorice-y stuff. This is Petite at its best and it’s still going strong 14 years on. — 3 months ago
