Tierra Alta Vineyard Syrah 2018

Blackberry, anise, wood smoke, hints of blueberry, a thread of olives throughout. It’s Cali Syrah putting off a little N. Rhône vibe. — a month ago

Thea's Selection Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Rich, deep pinot from Willamette. Nice tension. Reminds me of Tensley, for some reason. Probably because of its luscious fruit. Gift wine. — 3 months ago

Noir Santa Barbara County Syrah 2020

My goodness! PNP right out of the bottle this nectar is singing. Reminds me why I love Syrah so much. Tensley is such a underrated producer. Flowers, coco, graphite, blackberries, olives. Solid acidity. Can’t wait to see how this evolves. — a month ago


Thompson Vineyard Syrah 2010

Camp 4 Vineyard Blanc Santa Barbara Conty Grenache Blanc Roussanne 2018

Meyer lemon on the palate, with a touch of minerality. Perfume-y on the nose. — 4 months ago


Colson Canyon Vineyard Syrah 2010

Super ripe and rich (too much for me, but hard to argue the richness and purity), for lovers of super ripe CC Syrah, long finish, very pure flavor profile!! — 2 months ago

Fundamental Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is inky and voluptuous. It hits the palate with blackberry jam, chocolate, licorice and spice. I can't think of a California Cabernet that delivers this much quality for the money. Black cherry fruit, tobacco and cedar abound. $18.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2021) — 6 months ago

I agree completely with this rating and review. I like that this wine doesn’t insult the wine lover with over the top oak add-ons and tannins to make a chocolate milk wine but rather has created a smooth and honest California Cabernet.
