Aux Raynauds Chalk Hill Merlot 2013

Beautiful flavor but a little thin on the palate. I think this is a bit shut down. For the moment as it’s a bit off from usual level of quality — a day ago

Kelley Fox Wines

Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Blanc 2019

YIKES! I definitely wasn’t expecting this. Positively explosive right out of the bottle. Power, minerality, enough acidity to remove two layers of enamel... but wow...the weight, the ripe juicy pear, honey-crisp, and musk melon fruit rolls over your tongue like Patton through Germany! The wine demands your attention—I involuntarily sneezed...but I wanted another mouthful...I needed another mouthful. This wine is far, far too young... but it’s simply brilliant...and will be for years. I can’t believe this is “lowly” Pinot Blanc.. and I can’t believe it’s from Oregon. Well done, Kelley! — 9 days ago

Tychson Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

11’Colgin Cellars Tychson Hill Vineyard. Located just north of Saint Helena. Not that far from Grace family Vineyards.

Tightly wound straight out of the bottle. Decanted for 90 minutes. Certainly has made a world of difference.
Still full-bodied & depth, bursting with dark fruit, licorice flavor’s, back by nice floral notes, polished tannins. Slightly backwards!?! Last time I had this was five years ago & it wasn’t open for business. Now it’s screaming drink me.

Damiani Wine Cellars

Sunrise Hill Vineyards Gewürztraminer 2015

Wow. I’m kinda blown away here. This stuff is awesome. Tastes like it’s straight out of Europe. One of the best American gewurz I’ve had. Slightly viscous. Pears, baking spice, maybe a touch of melon. Finishes w some tobacco notes. And nutmeg. Only 147 cars so it’s made w love and care. Wish I had more. — 8 days ago

@Eric S i recommend the Mates Vineyard if you haven’t tried it. It would show well against any Chardonnay from anywhere.

LOVE Just Because - Southhold Farm + Cellar 2019 Dolcetto Texas Hill Country
Prominent rosy floral nose. Acid and tannins. Not at all sweet. Cherries, melon, tannins and earthy stems. A little bit of cedar and meaty notes. Flavors unfold gradually on the tongue as you sip and savor. Beautiful translucent light ruby color. Slightly cloudy, but NOT inky or opaque. Tasty. The sharp acidity paired well with a spicy fresh homemade pizza. Not gulpable - makes you drink it slow, enjoy all the flavors.

I over chilled this, hence the nose is compressed, although butterscotch is prominent.. Palate is generous, while medium-bodied. A subtle presentation of stone fruits leads into coconut and spice. Finishes with delicate acidity. Consume this vintage now.

Happy Mother’s Day to those precious ladies on this platform 🌸

@Chris Koupal, we’ve never tried it. I assume I’d have a huge nosebleed at the checkout 😏
