Eagle Point Ranch Grenache 2015

Bee Hunter Wines Eagle Point Ranch Grenache 2015 Mendocino, California

A very pretty color of ruby with a very wide brick rim.

Interesting nose of blackberries, cedar, cooked cherries, raisins, figs, chocolates, sweet vanilla, cola, spices, mint and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with cooked cherries and strawberries, lemon peel, vanilla, light raisins, dried fruits, cedar, herbs, licorice, cola, chocolates, sweet vinaigrette, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Grenache from Mendocino County in California. Much lighter than I expected it to be, but it is so yummy.

This Single Vineyard is good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime, when it shows the complexity.

This six year old is peaking now, and drinking very nicely with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Alcohol is not showing at all, so watch out. Nicely balanced at this point. Easy drinking and tasty.

A great sipping wine, but good with food too. I paired it with Brie cheese and crackers.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

The Poor Ranch Zinfandel 2014

Rich, ripe stone fruit with a hint of vanilla on the nose that is full. However, it starts very smooth and has a nice balance of acidity and tannins without being jammy. Long, dry finish with a mild spicy note. — 18 days ago

Manzanita Cellars

Mendozino Zinfandel

I don’t think this was super expensive but a nice surprise 72 % Sonoma - 28% Mendocino but really deep jammy black fruit ( perfect SM tri- tip wine ) spice , slight oak background 15.5% abv but nicely balanced in the bigger style — 11 days ago

Glou Glou Venturi Vineyard Charbono 2019

Really delicious and versatile, cherry but not too fruity, some tang but not overwhelming, good chilled or not. I’d call this a daily drinker because I wouldn’t at all mind drinking it every day, but it’s a little out of my price range for a daily. Love it! — 14 days ago

Byrd Vineyard

Reserve Mendocino Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendocino County.

Showing red and black fruits with wood, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, earth, leather, bell pepper, tobacco, light vegetables, violets and light forest floor.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward, with a touch of earth notes. Interesting and spicy. Nicely balanced and elegant. Showing a lovely nose at this point.

Feels like a Right Bank Bordeaux, actually.

This 9 year old is drinking very nicely now and will be good in the next few years. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Needed an hour to open up properly, and we enjoyed it for the next 5 hours.

Very tasty and enjoyable by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
