Martha Stoumen

Mendocino County Nero d'Avola 2017

Nero is Martha’s grape. She spent her training at Cos and became one of the only, if the only, winemaker spotlighting the grape this side of the ocean.

It’s raw, seriously structured, and intensely tart. Mountain forest berries and a camp fire. Pine, mint, menthol, and cedar - Mezcal smoke circling above. Vibrant acid and tannin and ripe for food. Very good.

Mendocino Organic Red

Grew on me. Tart cherry leads the show. Followed by a carnation of black currant and boysenberry. Ends with a confectionary glint. — 15 days ago

The Butler Ranch Vineyard Red Blend 2009

Alder Springs Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Surprise find and at this price range it stacks up very well. Not overly ripe though it’s fruit forward and the tannins are soft making it very accessible now. Rolls around the palate in a good way. — an hour ago

Pacific Redwood

Organic Red North Coast Red Blend

Needed a wine with low acidity, low sugar, & minimum yeast content. This had all of that and had a very satisfying taste as an accompaniment to Thanksgiving dinner — 9 days ago

Napa Valley Carneros Pinot Noir 2017

A tasty and interesting Pinot Noir from Napa Valley. Never had one from Napa, actually.

Showing cherries, strawberries, wood, raspberries, chocolates, vanilla, spices, cola and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity. Soft and elegant with nice complexity.

Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel. Balanced with nice acidity.

Would age nicely in the next 5 years.

Good for parties. Good by itself or with food. A nice porch wine. I had it slightly chilled which was great.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
