Pfalz Dry Riesling 2021

Lemon, lemon peel, orange, pineaple and a tad of chalk : the nose is quite complex! The palate is very well balanced, crisp and clean with a superb acid backbone, nice touches of lemon an pineaple all along, a vivid and dynamic mouthfeel and a long clean and fresh finish with this citrusy tune which is played all along the backbone. That's great! — 15 days ago

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2018

Wasn’t going to leave the Dry Creek Valley without trying some Zin, and Unti always makes one of my favorites. Primitovo clone (naturally), with a little Barbera (for lift) and Petit Sirah (for tone). Lol it sounds like I’m talking about a girdle… — 18 days ago

Great SB which isn’t too expensive.
Happy 4th, peeps. Although as an Englishman I choke when I say that. Nothing here that’s happy for us 🥲

@Ron R lol. I lived in West London for 15 years and found it amusing seeing all the 4th celebrations! (By the locals, too) lol

East Bench Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2019

Balanced Zinfandel with strong notes of pepper and red fruit, mostly cherry. It’s balanced and enjoyable now, but it will definitely hold good for a few years. Very good! — 16 days ago

Dry Creek Valley Grenache Blend 2018

Solid new world Grenache.

Yes, it’s all fun and strawberry jam at first. But this wine is fresher and more structured on the palate. Syrah lends some smoke, pepper, savoriness, depth and structure. Red and black licorice.

Dry Mosel Riesling 2020

Lemon and lemon zest on the nose and a tiny touch of petrol. The palate is great and shows pristine balance and a crisp and clean acid drive that balances the lemony notes and the soft mouthfeel so well. The finish lasts for a while and leaves a great fresh final note. Not great but very well done! — 17 days ago

Guadagni Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2019

Popped too young, but I just wanted to open it, dammit. Classic fairly old-school Zin nose, with brambly blackberry, a bit of American oak, and stony gravel. Fairly tight in the mouth. I love the focused fruit, which is not jammy in the least. It’s very dry (which is almost jarring these days of jammy Zins with residual sugar), and it’s got some youthfully drying tannins. Needs, and will be better in, at least 2-3 years, but enjoyable now. — 16 days ago

Quest Zinfandel 2008

Some people think Zinfandel this age doesn’t work. Those people haven’t tasted this one. Not only was it wonderful two nights ago when we drank only half because we wanted to be able to stay awake for the show, it’s still lovely, and we’ll finish it during tonight’s outdoor Shakespeare show. — a day ago

Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend 2019

The 2019 has had some time to develop and it’s ready to drink now, but it can benefit from 2 years in cellar. Notes of cherry and blueberry, very subtle smoky aftertaste. Very strong aroma, that translates nicely on the palate. — 3 days ago

Ayrarakis Wines

Psarades Dafni Dry White Blend 2020

Interesting and unique Greek White varietal. Bright gold color. Interesting aromas of bay leaves (Dafni means laurel in Greek), ginger and lime. Pallet is full of citrus and herbs. Soft acidity. Quite refreshing. Fascinating wine. — 9 days ago
