Grimm's Bluff

Happy Canyon Sauvignon Blanc 2016

An utterly exuberant Sauvignon blanc, totally unlike a Loire wine, but excellent. Lemongrass, wax, lime zest, salt, plum flesh, very complex fruit qualities that make it happy and responsive to food. — 2 months ago

Bohème Wines

Taylor Ridge Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

medium golden yellow; muted, lemon zest, wet stone; saline, stone fruit; medium bodied, good acid backbone, 14.1% ABV; sourced from vineyard on bluff 5 miles from Pacific Ocean, whole cluster pressed and fermented in seasoned French oak, made by owner/winemaker Kurt Beitler, grandson of Charlie Wagner and nephew of Chuck Wagner co-founders of Caymus Vineyards; $45 — a year ago

Archery Summit

Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay 2016

The palate confirms the nose with mineral and citrusy aromas of limes, pears and green apples. Well-balanced acidity. 12.8% ABV. A very refreshing chardonnay from the Eola-Amity Hills in Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA.

The pioneers used the name Eola as a reference to the aeolian harp. A wind instrument named after Aeolus, the Greek god of the wind. The gap in this area of the Willamette Valley ushers in howling winds from the Pacific Ocean which are then trapped in the Coastal Range. Cheers!

Howling Bluff

Sin Cera Three Mile Creek Block 2 Merlot Petit Verdot 2016

Sin Cera. Better if it breathes a day or too. Nice and oaky not too sweet. Merlot blend. — 5 months ago


Kite Tail Carneros Chardonnay 2017

Kite Tail is from the bluff top on the estate where the soils are well drained and the winds are high. Slowly harvested over 3 weeks and then fermented to full malolactic. It then spends 16 months in 50% new french oak. Definitely a bit on the richer side of the spectrum, but the freshness of the fruit and the cutting acidity make it a high quality example of cool weather cali chard. — a year ago
