Populis Wine

Reversée Mendocino County Carignane

Eminently drinkable light red blend (dark rosé?). Funky, dirty, musty nose which I love. Acidic and moderately tannic. Light and juicy berry flavors. I was told that this is a low-intervention wine. This wine has offbeat character in spades. A good choice for summer, when I think many of us tend to eat lighter and fresher foods. — 14 days ago

Covenant Wines

Red C Red Blend 2016

This Sonoma blend has Cabernet Sauvignon and something else. I think it has Syrah. It’s a substantial wine that is drinkable but could improve with 2 more years in the bottle. There is a combination of red and dark fruits that in distinct. The tannins are medium and give the wine structure. Finish is pleasant and lasting. — 15 days ago

Finley Vineyard

B Meritage Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Big nose and mouth filling. Lots of fruit. Tannins are in there but subdued at this point. Smooth finish. Very enjoyable. — 8 days ago


"Tous Ensemble" Mendocino County Pinot Noir 2016

Weedy and disjointed on opening. A day’s aeration reveals a spicy, sappy Pinot of real character. Somebody at this winery has both perspective and patience. One of the better $20 bottles of Pinot out there. — 22 days ago
