Long Mountain

Piedra Hill Vineyard (W.H. Smith)

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Trying an aged Howell Moutain. Ripe blackberry, prunes, bramble, leather, melty rubber, gas station, candied pecans and cola on the nose. Mellowed and integrated ripe blackberry, prunes, char, vanilla on the palate, with some herbal spice and black tea on a nice long finish. Looks like folks weren’t impressed by the other reviews but I really liked it. :) — 3 days ago

Smith Madrone

Spring Mountain District Riesling 2016

This is a very tasty Riesling from Napa Valley.

Medium-bodied with medium-plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

This 6 year old is showing lemons, yellow apples, petrol, plastic, cream, earth, minerals, herbs, sea salt and white pepper.

I had it a year ago, and it seems like it is less fruit forward now.

Spicy and entertaining. Good by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and better when not too cold.

12.8% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$34.

Ramato Long Island Pinot Grigio 2021

Love love love Channing Daughters. This Ramato is less rosé, more orange wine, both in color and taste. It’s all wet rocks and incense, raspberries and nettles. Super complex and super tasty. — 16 days ago

Further improved on day 2.
Lots of oak treatment on the nose and palate. Tannins are still quite robust, along with the acidity. Best Lamborn in a while. Drink or hold this vintage.

Chasing Rain

Red Mountain Merlot 2018

An unusual partnership between oak/vanilla (sweet) and bitterness >in a good way. Interesting wine! 85% Merlot 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 19 months in American and French oak. There is an oak/ vanilla sweetness with great fruity berries on the front & midpalate which transitions to a cocoa powder, black licorice, anise bitterness to a long finish. Very smooth, Medium+ bodied. Fun to decipher! My Costco..$10! We went through gas line 1st...loving this! — 25 days ago

Way beyond what I expected for a 2011. After 11 years this beauty is fully resolved, velvety and absolutely delicious. Purchased on release, I’m sure glad I waited this long. It’s in its perfect drinking window. Rk — 7 days ago
