Quarzo Amador Syrah 2016

The 2016 ‘Quarzo’ Syrah is drop dead stunning. Sourced from Ann Kraemer's Shake Ridge Ranch this instantly grabs your attention with its dark inky color and vibrant aromatics of ripe black cherries, fresh violets, smoked bacon, black olives and hints of earthy minerals all exploding from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, fresh and layered with a center of juicy dark fruits, black olives and violets that burst on to the long supple finish. This is a total gem of a Syrah from Andy Erickson and Annie Favia that is simply delicious now, but will certainly continue to evolve incredibly well over the next decade. — 8 days ago

A less know AVA for wine but, that doesn’t mean they don’t offer up meaningful wines. Amador deserves more wine lovers attention.

Barsotti Ranch Syrah 2014

One of my favorite producers in CA. Unapologetic and consistently true to form. Crushed cherry, wild berries, apricot, red apple skin, sweet lavender pastille, smoked meat, redwood forest, coffee bean, warm and turned earth. Vin de soif, fresh, infused, love the tannin profile and vivacious energy this has. — 16 days ago

Lone Pine Vineyard El Dorado Lagrein 2017

Much better than last year. Ripe strawberries, rose, it has a kind of lemony acid, and then a great herbal component. It’s almost like concentrated strawberry lemonade with a wood component that’s really nice not at all like oak. — 21 days ago
