El Dorado County, Sierra Foothills

Donkey & Goat

Stone Crusher Skin Ferment El Dorado Roussanne

Purchased a bottle from the reserve list at the winery earlier this year. Consumed with miso sablefish and lentils with cherries and basil. Rich golden hue, cloudy honeycomb-like. Nose is like dried leaves and cider mill, fall like aromas. Hints of petrol & citrus. This just explodes with bitter apricot, citrus, intense acidity. Complex layers keep coming. Orange juice and zest in a sweet morning bun. Oxidative nuttiness like toasted salted almonds. Super long finish. Amazing stuff. — 13 days ago

Fenaughty Vineyard Syrah 2018

Kristie’s first vintage of Syrah from the Sierra foothills. Young, bright and vibrant with violets, black pepper and acid for days. Enjoyed this slightly chilled on the back porch (believe it or not,
California Syrah can be a picnic wine), but looking forward to seeing how my second bottle evolves over the next few years...

Zin and ribs last night and this wine paired perfectly - intense powerful with some extraction evident but when paired with finger sucking Rufus Teague sauce ribs - bam and fireworks - yummy and smiles all around - this wine could last a few years but why for it is so ready NOW — 6 days ago

Viognier 2017

Dedicated to our dear, dear friend, Susan Marks, who we miss dearly — RIP. We have been purchasing this lovely, mineral-infused Viognier since the early 2000s from Susan and Jonathan, my favorite California Viognier year in and year out, crisp, clean, showing some lovely stone fruit notes this vintage, just wonderful as always. — 15 days ago
