I met Mike Grgich several years back. Incredible to know he was responsible for Chateau Montelena winning the 73’ Paris tasting.

Wow, this was...unique. Don’t have previous experience with this wine so I’m not sure of how true to form this was. One thing for sure...WHOLE CLUSTER. Lots of black pepper crusted rhubarb notes to where it was about spicy, almost like a light northern Rhône Syrah on the nose. The palate showed sage, herbal and oregano spices...chimichurri dipped cherries and even some olive? Not sure I’d be able to call this Pinot if served it blind. — 9 days ago

Sanford & Benedict Chardonnay 2017

From a wine dinner with Sashi Moorman himself! Great flavor and intensity of new world fruit, but with the restraint and grace of the old world. The minerality and tension really keeps you engaged. — 7 days ago

The Eyrie Vineyards

Chasselas Doré 2018

Pale yellow, excellent clarity. Sulfur funk in nose in initial pour, followed by floral, stone fruit and vanilla notes. Peach and lemon flavors with high acidity, dry, slight skin astringency with minerality on finish. Would cut through a cheese fondue like a buzzsaw, but with a lovely flavor profile. A curious juxtaposition, that... Decant 20 minutes. Umami taste emerges after an hour. — 9 days ago

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Went back to a classic tonight and enjoyed. But more raspberry and slight blueberry along with a more earthy feel. I think this has gotten a bit better with some modest age. — 3 days ago

Summum Seven Springs Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

From a wine dinner with Sashi Moorman. Balance, balance, balance! A bit more elegant in nature and slightly lighter on its feet. Stands up with ease to a 1er cru in burgundy. — 7 days ago

Closing the night with Penner-Ash. Had this upon its release at the winery. It shows nice evolution...rounder, elegant with softer spice.

The body is ruby, ripe & full. The wine is brooding on the nose & palate. It’s a well extracted, sweeter version of burgundy. Ripe, ruby; dark cassis, blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, black raspberries, poached strawberries & hints of floral blueberries & raspberries. The spice is dark with a little heat, soft; clove, nutmeg & vanilla, mixed dark berry cola, black licorice, river stones, limestone, some crushed rocks, moist clay, dark, moist, turned earth, some fresh herbs & eucalyptus, pine tree sap, dark, melted chocolate with fresh & slightly candied; dark, red, blue flowers set in violets. The acidity is round and like a cool shower on a warm day. The long finish is ruby, ripe, well balanced, polished that falls into dark spices on the persistent long set.
