Domaine de la Noblaie

Chinon Cabernet Franc 2016

Yummy hay/mud aroma in the glass, tastes like a dry pinot noir at first. Opens up to a barely ripe cherry over time. Served by the lovely Dean. — 2 years ago

Edna Valley Chardonnay 2018

Edna Valley. Stone and dried and fresh lemon peels make for a pinpoint nose on the focused entry to this bottling. There is compelling grip to the sip, where wet gravel and lanolin touches meet with lemon-cream flavors. Dean B. — 7 months ago

Silver Anniversary Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

This has stood still. Love this wine from the prior winemaker; Dean Sylvester.
From magnum.
Notes of cocoa and coffee. Tannins are integrated. Good acid profile. This has another 5 years of runway, at least. Happy Christmas, lifeforms 👽

Riverain Vineyards

Cardiac Hill Bennett Valley Syrah

Riverain is Steve Nordhoff and Dean & Laurie Gray’s label that produces just a few hundred cases from some select vineyards in Northern California, including a Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, and a Gamble Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc.

According to Dean Gray, Riverain is a historically French term meaning “local & friendly people who reside near the river.”
@Greg Ballington deserves credit for the reco, and while I’ve had a handful of Syrahs from the Cardiac Hill Vineyard in Sonoma County’s Bennett Valley, this is my first that’s made by Thomas Rivers Brown.

Screams old world, particularly Northern Rhône. Loved it from the get-go, but the acceleration at 90 minutes open is significant. Campfire grilled meat, finely ground pepper, black olive, and creosote, with a core of savory black fruit, and a beautiful secondary combination of cedar and lavender. There’s a distinctive combination of balance, purity of fruit, and savory structure that’s hard not to recognize.
