Domaine San Guilhem

Mount Eden Vineyards

Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon 1987

One of my absolute faves of the flight from @Eric LaMasters. Lots up of upfront purple fruit. It was honestly more 🍇 than any other flavor I could compare it to. Rich and extracted, cedar overtones and full finish. I kept revisiting this during the 40 bottle club hedonism that followed. — 16 hours ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

This ultra superb '95 Ridge Montebello puts just about every older vintage Napa cabernet to shame with highly complex aromas and flavors of blackberry , fig , scorched earth, violets , cedar and nutmeg on the nose... followed by a perplexing array of red and dark berry, cinnamon, and lavender tea flavors on the palate. This delivered that Wow factor you would expect from a World Class iconic wine. Better than the 2000 and 2003 Montebellos. Its true they say to wait 20-25 years to pop open one of these in most years. Just remember to use a prong style opener rather than a corkscrew on a vintage wine to avoid the cork crumbling into your bottle. — 4 hours ago

Sandlands

San Benito County Mataro 2015

Virile, yet tiny dancer light on the initial attack. Not rich, but a spreading carpet of complex, vibrating ripe black fruit with a healthy dose of black olive tapenade and balanced acidity. No noticeable oak and ready for the table NOW! Long soothing finish. Kudos Tegan! — 18 days ago

Charles Wetmore Livermore Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

I LOVE this Cab! A gorgeous color with Plum, Blackberries and Cherries as well as a hint of Licorice. I enjoyed it with a Steak and all the Spice notes came out. Light tannins and acidity but a beautiful mouth-feel. I enjoy wines from Livermore Ranch and this did not disappoint. I'll definitely buy it again. — 10 days ago

Homestead Cider

Label says Homestead Cider, Dry, 8% ABV, produced and bottled in Port Townsend WA, but “crafted from heirloom apples grown in homestead orchards in Washington’s Olympic Peninsula”. Pale yellow with green tinge, hazy clarity with pinpoint bubbles. Slight head after pour, ring of foam and bubbles persists on edge of glass. Funk and complex apple profile in nose. Rich dry complex flavors, difficult to pull apart but my initial reaction was “Wow”. Style is consistent with a farmhouse or craft style production, but very well done. Good stuff, rich, fruity and at times it does taste like applesauce (Gravensteins?), with an interesting combination of acidity, flavors and aromas, but definitely dry. It does seems pricey given the simple package and label, and the bottle is elegant with a resealable closure so it’s also reusable but yes, there is really great cider inside. Worth seeking out, and worth every penny spent. — a month ago
