2013. Lovely! This does NOT seem like a 14% alc Chardonnay. Flinty, balanced, with some apricot. Stunning with grilled salmon, and artichokes. — 5 years ago

Terroir Coquerel Calistoga Tempranillo 2013

Give this one at least 45 min of air and you will be rewarded with bright raspberry, toast, and Napa Valley (Calistoga) dust. The terroir really comes through here, because, to me, this tastes very little like a Tempranillo from Spain. Very good, though, much like a Howell Mountain Cabernet, but with Tempranillo varietal character. Well-balanced, the tannins are grippy, but rounded and agreeable, the 14.8% abv is fun but not hot, and the acidity is perfect. Big fruit, long finish, what's not to like? — 5 years ago

Walnut Wash Vineyard Petite Sirah 2012

I don't usually pair my wine with music, but this wine calls for two songs, Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix and Purple Rain by Prince. I really wanted to mention Purple Rain, because that's one of my all time favorite songs, soundtracks, and movies. This Petite Sirah from Coquerel Wines in Calistoga, Califorina is so purple, it's almost black. The fruit flavors are equally dark: blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, and plum. Add pepper, spice, and ample acidity and you have a total package Petite Sirah. You won't mind that your teeth are stained when you are finished sipping. This was a sample I didn't request, but do not regret receiving. If you love Petite Sirah, you will love this one. $39 direct from the winery. — 5 years ago

Terroir Coquerel Pinot Noir 2012

Almost Burgundian in expression, the 2012 Coquerel Terroir Pinot Noir offers aromas of crushed raspberries, dried cherries, allspice, caramelized brown sugar, earth and mushrooms. Bright acidity lends lift to a core that is sweetly outfitted in red fruit, with marked purity, low tannins, and acid that hits the sides of the tongue and pleasantly lingers. There is an echo of spice and game on the finish— it should pair beautifully with savory fall dishes, or game hens stuffed with wild rice and dried fruit. Sample — 5 years ago
