Monkey Jacket North Coast Red Blend 2018

Serious depth here. It hits you at the front of the palate and has characteristic valdigue earth/mineral tones all over it. Making this an everyday drinker! — 9 days ago

Ricci Vineyard St. Laurent 2019

Michael Cruse, Maestro of CO2. Pet Nat of the grape, Saint Laurent. It’s off dry (slightly sweet) and pours thick and heady like a Belgian beer.

Soft aromatics of peaches and cream. Tastes like peach rings and pear soda and table grapes.

Rorick Vineyard Muscat 2018

May I introduce you to the skills of professional wine person, Michael Cruse. He’s a wizard - people think of him first for his sparkling, but this deeply complex bone dry Muscat from the Rorick vineyard makes it’s way into five total freaking barrels and he’s selling it for about $29. This is an underpriced very good buy.

Ambitious, big, intense, and if you find some fault here I’d love to know what it is. Unfiltered colors of pale hay. Your first impression is definitely lychee, then peach, tangerine, vanilla oak.

Mendocino Tannat 2016

Disclosure I love everything Michael Cruz makes. 2016 sitting for a few years was rich and lush and opened up to rose petal and cherry and plum. Wonderful and sad that was the last bottle. — 2 months ago

Charles Heintz Vineyard Syrah 2015

Deep opaque purple, incredible nose bursting the senses. Rich layers of black cherry and smoked cinnamon. Still a little tannic, but it’s subtle. Good acidity and long finish. — 3 months ago

Alder Springs Vineyard Blanc de Noirs 2016

I dunno... I think I love this more than ultramarine. Has better acid, that flintyness, and balance. — 5 months ago
