Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard Syrah Grenache 2012

The 2012 Saxum ‘Bone Rock’ Syrah (WWB, 95) is a stunning wine which shows tremendous verve, terroir, weight and intensity, with an exceedingly long finish. The wine is sourced from the Bone Rock block of James Berry Vineyard which is a steeply sloped site planted to head trained Syrah. Amazingly enough, while terracing they found fossilized whale bones when they were digging and needed to use jack hammers to plant the vines. It is not surprising that the flinty undertones impress alongside a deep core of dark currants, wild blackberries and pipe tobacco flavors. The brightness and length of the wine adds to the drinking enjoyment. Showing beautiful poise and elegance, the 2012 ‘Bone Rock’ Syrah will continue to provide drinking enjoyment over the next ten to fifteen years. Drink 2020-2033 — 5 days ago

Central Coast Chardonnay 2015

I like this style. butter and pear, juicy ripe cali and no apparent oak flavor. Asako's style! good for the price. I think butterscotch and just shy of being too 'candy sweet' (from oak not from sugar) in a chuggable way. hedonistic ripe — a month ago

Holbrook Mitchell Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

A deep garnet with hints of medium cherry undertones. Really intriguing nose that starts off with plenty of oak and blackberries, but then transitions to notes of leather, tobacco, and wet moss. What I want to say is that this is a very pretty wine, which it is, but it’s also so very big. It’s a huge Napa Cab which can be the death knell for so many wines but she manages to deftly avoid that fate. Plush and quite smooth on the tongue, there’s well integrated tannins and a certain lusciousness to this wine. Upon opening, there’s a surfeit of oak but that quickly fades and some really nice fruit shows. Blue and black berries, mint, chocolate, and herbs on the palate. Very nice long finish with some mild spice. — 24 days ago
