El Dorado Gamay Noir 2015

Riper than what you’d expect from one of my favorite producers in the US. A pretty, lucid, rusted pale ruby. Robust, spicy, oaky. Fleshy red berries and perfumed flowers. Gamay, done new world. — 3 days ago

Dirty & Rowdy

Shake Ridge Ranch Mourvedre 2015

I always enjoy D&R wines for their tasty, quaffable nature. Great weekday easy drinkers. Where I’m let down is in their homogeneity. Each bottle seems like same wine repeated with little varietal character. Maybe it’s the concrete ferments and/or carbonic maceration. — 19 days ago

Madroña

Zinfandel 2014

Nice brick/dark purple color. Fairly mellow nose. Flavor is classic Sierra mountain foothills Zin. Has jammy ripe berry flavors with some licorice and berry stuff. Some funky stuff too. Not exactly dominate zinful notes, but just great red none the less. — a day ago

Edmunds St. John

El Jaleo Shake Ridge Red Grenache Blend 2016

My second rodeo with Mr. St John, glad I am here: a deeper dive into black fruits than his Cote Du Rhône homage, & a more generous palate. Still all in balance, a restrained hand, but the terroir speaks through his hand, amen. Grenache, some Tempranillo, some Mourvedre, and some Graciano. Decanted about 1/2 hr. Delectable allows me to name only my local tag sale but not my town? Whaadup @Delectable Wine ? — 9 days ago
