El Dorado County, Sierra Foothills

Holly's Hill

Estate El Dorado Mourvedre 2015

Nice red wine color. Ruby and purple. Smells deep with plenty of soil and fruits in the mix. Flavor leans towards classic CA red. Full body. Rich. Dry (meaning pretty hearty tannins). This is a wine for wine critics to ponder and enjoy. They are the ones to decide if it really is Mourvèdre Classique. — 6 days ago

The Prospector El Dorado Mourvèdre 2013

Tons of bright, sour red fruit, but more savory than I remember. Definitely funk toward the finish with almost a raspberry chocolate note. Tasting good now but I bet this still has many years of life left. — 25 days ago

Had a glass at American Provision’s new restaurant, Gray’s Hall, and loved it! Very light bodied with a nice fruit forward flavor. Would definitely buy a bottle of this for summertime dinners. — 8 days ago

North Canyon Road Syrah 2015

Deep purple color. Pronounced, developing aromas of blackberry, blueberry, black olive, granite, green herb, cream/vanilla. Dry, intense flavors of the same - lots of blue fruit. Medium body, medium+ acidity, medium+ tannin, medium alcohol, long finish. Excellent wine, drink or hold. 93/100 — 22 days ago
