Thanksgiving dinner and quite a surprise that this old wine still shows nicely without any overwhelming oak etc as per old reviews. Not all that complex but still firm and good texture and went well with all the different dishes. Of course the highlight was the double magnum bottle and the correspondingly big cork! — 16 days ago

La Rinconada Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Needs way more time - thin and uninteresting the first day, second day a bit more weight and complexity. Bright red fruits and a pleasant sweetness. — 18 days ago

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Went back to a classic tonight and enjoyed. But more raspberry and slight blueberry along with a more earthy feel. I think this has gotten a bit better with some modest age. — 5 days ago

Bright, light with a touch of creaminess to really smooth out this bouncy wine. Slight floral on the nose and tart green apples with pears rounding it out. Perfect with a Rosemary Brussel Sprout & Ricotta Cannelloni I made! — 7 days ago

Sanford & Benedict Chardonnay 2017

From a wine dinner with Sashi Moorman himself! Great flavor and intensity of new world fruit, but with the restraint and grace of the old world. The minerality and tension really keeps you engaged. — 8 days ago
