Rhys Vineyards

Family Farm Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Pop and pour, but notes from 1.5 hrs open. This might bey favorite incarnation of this wine so far. Also apparently the vintage with the least whole cluster (15%). On the nose: lovely perfumed nose with sweet red raspberry, wild strawberry, loads of spice, soft herbal.notes. On the palate: excellent acidity and density: soft grapeseed notes, dark black raspberry, and soft, finely grained tannin on the finish. — 6 days ago

Les Enfants Terribles Evangelho Vineyard Old Vines Carignane 2016

Thinks drinks like a light, racier version of Evangelho Zin. It’s effortless but with striking depth and clarity.. Vines planted in the 1890s. Killer. — 3 days ago

@Adam Beasley @Rhonely Boy Agreed. One of my favorite value producers, anywhere.

Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

I mean, yeah it’s good, but I am not getting the gaggle of crazy high reviews. Someone tell me what I’m missing? Bottle aging? — 7 days ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Cunning Carignane Mourvedre 2015

Having this with a tomato/meat sauce on pasta and it’s as perfect an accompaniment as any Chianti Classico or Vino Nobile. Loads of dark crunchy cherry fruit, a balsamic savory note and loads of minerality. Intense but in a measured way, everything in balance. So good. — 9 days ago

Turley

Duarte Vineyard Zinfandel 2019

Bold and powerful Zin with a great palate of dark and red fruits, oaky tobacco, and lingering finish. Curious to see what some light aging might add — 4 days ago

Mindego Ridge

Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2018

Intense saline blue fruits with excellent structure and balance. Still primary, but showing its potential with more air. Excellent flavors and lengthy finish. Bravo. — 2 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Estate Chardonnay 2013

Medium gold color. Massive honey on the nose and throughout the palate. Refined with medium plus depth. A little one dimensional and probably slightly past prime drinking age, but I really enjoyed it. — 7 days ago
