Alban Estate Vineyard Viognier 2018

Wow. What a white. An absolutely bursting nose gives way to Meyer lemon, lemon zest, and honeycomb. A vivacious body and delectable finish. — 14 days ago

Santa Ynez Valley Grant Grenache Syrah 2017

This is a very nice Grenache from Santa Ynez Valley, California.

Easy drinking and fruit forward. Drinks very much like a new world Pinot Noir.

Showing red and blue fruits with spices, peppercorn, leather, earth, light vegetables, tobacco and dark coffee.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Nice nose, spicy and tangy. A good quality wine and very easy drinking.

I gave it a slight chill, and had it by the pool with some cheeses.

13.6% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Stolpman Vineyards

Angeli Syrah 2012

Needs two hour decant, fruit is great, terrior make me yearn for a trip to Los Olivos. Barrel influence still a bit strong (menthol notes from char) but works out nicely. Fruit is in the blueberry and plum spectrum. Some sediment is noticeable on bottle and on palette (nice texture), color and body has thinned a bit, In its peak, and guess a 3 year window before fruit begins its decent into the abyss (que: Slayer 🤘 haha). — 11 days ago

Clendenen Family Vineyards

"Bricco Buon Natale" Nebbiolo 2011

11’ Clendenen Bricco Buon Natale Nebbiolo. 5 years in 500L Hungarian oak.
Pulled the cork 2 hour ahead of me decanting it at the restaurant. Garnet in color.
Popping cherry/cedar on the nose. Red cherry, red roses, cranberries… Flashy.
Bright acidity. Medium tannins. Never would’ve guessed the wine to be 9 years old. Love Jim’s wines. 7/10 years in the bottle.

Alban Vineyards

Alban Estate Vineyard Syrah - Grenache Blend 2013

WNH Christmas in July and my gift was from my great friend @Mike R and what a showing. I agree with Mike that Alban is back and this wine shows classic Alban style. Rich and decadent-2 hour decant shows bacon fat, white flowers, camp fire and hint of game. I find the nose and palate are very much the same. Fine tannins that give tension but not over powering. Thanks again Mike for this gift. — 24 days ago
