Smithereens El Dorado Red Blend 2016

Basically a Cote du Rhône from the Sierra foothills. This surprised me. Very very well-made and tasty wine. Not overripe, red fruit gets a bit candied with air, has some elegance. +1 point for great QPR (by California standards anyway) — 14 days ago

Another one from a few weeks ago. Killed it with a seared tri tip! Big wine, loaded with dark berry and spice. Awesome QPR. — a month ago

Last one. Some bottle variation along the way, but this was still drinking well overall and relatively fresh. — a month ago

Gran Reserve Petite Sirah

100% Petite Sirah from Murphys in the Sierra foothills. A little high in alcohol at 15.2% but definitely the best PS I’ve had from that area. Compares well to Concannon and Livermore area PS which are my favorites. — 12 days ago

Amador County Chenin Blanc 2015

Medium green gold in glass. The nose is ripe Amalfi lemon with a hint of lime. A bit more weight on the mouth than expected, but smooth and lively on the swallow... and amazing complexity of tart citrus and cream. These wines always bring a smile to my face and a lift to my spirit. Kudos, Tegan. — 4 days ago
