Plumpjack

Napa Valley Merlot 2016

So this hit the spot. A gale force wind of plum and cherry pie aromas but seamlessly laced with flavors of cappuccino, nutmeg and a wood fired grill. Boozy but goes down easy. — 22 days ago

Les Grands Ponts

Rubis clair
Nez réduit et fruit rouge frais après 12 h s améliore
Bouche fraîche acide cœur de bouche assez compacte mais fiable sur la rose et les fruit rouge énorme longueur
Un vin sans sulfite à 10 degrés d alcool un tour de force pour 2013
Avec un peu plus de chaire cela serait un 95

Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Collaboration Series Ptera Cabernet Syrah

A lovely dark chewy wine. I always enjoy Force Majure wines. I’m not a big wine /food paring person. This wine calls out for food. Meat!! — 20 days ago

Coho

Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir 2014

Full disclosure: I freaking LOVE the wines from Coho. Every one, and have become acquaintances with Gary Lipp (a fellow Clevelander and long-suffering. Browns fan)- who has been a major force in bringing this delightful estate to life. I’m a huge fan, so there’s that. Expectations are extremely high for this ‘14 Stanley Ranch Pinot. I’ve had seven vintages of this beautifully-sourced Pinot- and from ‘14 I’m expecting great things. And those things are present ;).
I didn’t decant, just a bit of a breathe and she’s already opening and evolving. Yes there’s “bing cherry”- but that’s only at the foundation of the structure, which is rounding-out and expressing itself with a serious and embracing intellect on the palate. I don’t think I’ve ever had a more interesting conversation with a California Pinot. The mid to the finish is my favorite element of the entire experience. It’s smooth as Hopper’s Blue Velvet, and yet delightfully defined.

Force of Nature

Superb cab! Great nose and fruit forward. Let it open 30 to 1hr to get the best out of the wine. — 2 months ago

Cayuse Vineyards

Impulsivo Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo 2011

Now for the real Tempranillo, my first from Cayuse. Finally found some at a proper price.
This is some funky juice, has that same nose as their Syrah. Almost as great as the Tempranillo from Force Majeure
$95.00 per on a 3 pack
If you don’t like this then you need to stick to Paso, this is full on Washington.

@Joseph Barsky Washington Tempranillo is a different beast compared to Paso.
I thought Epoch was really good from Paso though. But its like comparing a Merlot to a Big Beckstoffer Cabernet. Two completely different wines
