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.

Waves Mendocino County Rosé 2020

At $10 a pop for 12-ounces, it ain't cheap but it makes up for it by being delicious. It's incredibly fruity, with huge notes of cherry on the front and some intense sweetness, with a touch of acid on the end to round it all out. Daddy wants more. — 6 hours 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.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Es Okay Mendocino County White Wine 2020

Pale gold; pronounced intensity aromas of rose petals, verbena, yellow plum, ripe honeydew melon; off dry, medium acid, medium alcohol, medium plus body, pronounced intensity flavors consistent with aromas; medium plus finish, surprising and lovely, the concentrated perfume lingers, almost flabby, but the incredibly interesting flavors and freshness balance it out — 2 days ago
