Saint-Joseph Syrah 2015

Very tasty served too warm restaurant pet peeve. Reminds me why I once got so excited about cool climate Syrah - it has many of the pretty spicy savory things I love if a little softer and less cut than I'd like. Grateful I didn't spend the $175 delectable lists. Pretty tasty, but still short of killer for me. Maybe tomorrow it'll open up more. — 4 days ago

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

David T

This is a sample of the 16 Insignia still in barrel.

On the nose, the dark fresh florals exploded. The fruits are very dark currants and well extracted. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries and blue fruits hues on the edges of the glass. Sweet tarry presence, loads of baking spices; vanilla, cinnamon, clove & nutmeg. Dark spice, black tea, pipe tobacco, dark rich soil, core of anise and fields of violets.

The body is thick and full. The wine still very fresh. The tannins big, meaty and chewy. The dark fruits are quite floral. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries with blue fruits. Sweet tarry presence, loads of baking spices; vanilla, cinnamon, clove & nutmeg. Dark spice, black tea, pipe tobacco, dark rich soil, crushed dry rocks, river stones, tough leather, cedar, core of anise with red flowers and fields of violets. Very good round acidity. The long, big, ruby, lush, well balanced finish is beautiful.

The fruit, tannins and acidity all speak to it being 95+ and a long cellar.

Cuvée Le Berceau St. Joseph Syrah 2012

Lyle Fass

Day 2 notes as day 1 it was an end of the night open and it needed 24 hours to really show. Nose is all black fruits, tiny bit of horse, granite, meat, earth, herbs, licorice. Feral. Dense gamey olives as well. Complex aromas. Palate has insane freshness and purity. So clean and straight as an arrow with great acids blackberry fruit and complex stoniness on the finish. Compact, long and balanced. Way more upside here. — 13 days ago

Vieilles Vignes St. Joseph Marsanne Roussanne Blend 2015

Now, even though I’m more of a Roussanne guy than a Marsanne guy, this is really good. Lots of wax and lanolin on the nose. Bitter pear fruit. Soft in the mouth with good intensity, very clean finish. Medium acids. Very good value. — 11 days ago

Elk Prairie Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

What a delightful Pinot from Humboldt County in Northern California. This limited production offering (only 3 barrels) from Micah Joseph Mirth and Adrian Jewell Manspeaker is totally top notch. It’s so Burgundian it gives me goosebumps 🤤 Black raspberry liqueur, blueberry, spiced cherry, preserved strawberry, dried herbs, freshly picked flowers, violet, damp stone, crushed earth, forest floor, and nuanced baking spices. I could drink this everyday. — a day ago
