Livermore Valley Dry Rosé Blend 2018

Fresh strawberries and cherries burst forth from the nose, with more of the same on the palate. The acidity is fresh and vibrant. This pale salmon rosé comes at the end of “rosé season,” but hang onto a bottle or two for Thanksgiving. It’s substantial enough for fall veggies, or turkey.

The Rare Barrel

Imperfectly Perfectl Golden Sour Beer

Nectarines! Wow this tastes exactly like nectarines. Definitely funk and acidity from the base beer, but the nose and palate are all juicy nectarines. — 7 days ago

Eagle Ridge

Private Reserve Petite Sirah 2013

Eagle Ridge is one of my favorite boutique wineries in Livermore. They use all estate grapes and the Petite Sirah is their signature wine. This 6 year old PS has flavors of plum and brambleberries. — 12 days ago

Trout Gulch Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Agreeing with other reviews, this is very much in the style of Chablis. That is perhaps accentuated by its present youth. — 7 days ago

Small Lot Livermore Valley Dry Orange Muscat 2018

This wine has beautiful floral notes, and considering the grape, one might think a dessert wine is in the glass, or maybe an Albariño or Gewurztraminer. That’s not happening, though. This Orange Muscat is completely dry. The palate shows lime notes in an orange-laced and wonderfully acidic setting. Bring on the shellfish.

Sounds like it’s not 100% Merlot

@David Shaw - I believe it only has be 75% in order to just be called Merlot.

Laws, but that tobacco note suggests some Malbec or even Cabernet Sauvignon was added to the blend. “A rose by any other name”, then?
