Estate Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay 2015

Woo-eeee does this ever smell like California Chardonnay—I was worried my delicate sensibilities might take umbrage, but my senses adjusted (maybe I’ve just been drinking weakling wines) and on the palate this wine is less an overly enthusiastic suitor and much more a gentleman who actually reads—more beneath the surface than I expected based on smell and soon we were holding hands and I was flirtatiously fidgeting with my necklace, and and wondering if we’d kiss at the end of the bottle (probably don’t pick a mate that way though their smell when you meet them is kinda important methinks). Anyway, what did this wine (I’ve decided is Ryan Gosling type) have to say? A lot! But fortunately I don’t mind a wine with more to say than me. Butterscotch and yellow apple, and most intriguingly both up front and on the finish I get that gunflint-y smoky minerality I adore and it finishes with citrus peel, creme, and browned butter. Glad I gave it a chance. — 13 days ago

Lemonade Pinot Noir Rosé 2020

Nose has ripe cherry, ruby red grapefruit and orange zest.

Palate has fresh cherry, tangerine with some sandy minerality, decent finish, drinking way too easy...

Cool story behind this wine, look it up, essentially being dealt a questionable hand in 2020 (wildfire smoke) the ladies got creative when life gave them lemons, so to speak.

The Gentleman California Nebbiolo Blend

Enjoyable blend. Kirsch, black cherry, chocolate and oak. Think this is a NV blend which makes it interesting and if they keep it up, compelling. — 2 months ago

Bonanza

California Cabernet Sauvignon

Nose is fruity and quite sweet. This is matched when you drink it along with a touch of smoke. Smooth wine overall with a bit of acidity. Overall a bit sweet for me but the ladies loved it. $27 — 3 months ago
