Petillant Wine Mendocino Valdiguié 2017

Pushing 80 degree day in Oakland so BBQ and this hour group pet nat valdigue. Tons of berries, but as it opens and warms you get some more floral and earth components. Keeping summer going as long as we can. — 9 days ago

Populis Wine

Reversée Mendocino County Carignane

Eminently drinkable light red blend (dark rosé?). Funky, dirty, musty nose which I love. Acidic and moderately tannic. Light and juicy berry flavors. I was told that this is a low-intervention wine. This wine has offbeat character in spades. A good choice for summer, when I think many of us tend to eat lighter and fresher foods. — 19 days ago

Two Shepherds

Trimble Vineyard Carignan

Aromatics are wonderfully evocative—black brambly fruit, leaf piles, wet asphalt on a foggy, drizzly fall morning while your neighbor has the smoker going. Cranberry and tea notes. Fine, but hefty tannins that settle on the center of the tongue and hang for a while, cashmerelike. Could do worse for a midday tipple. — 2 days ago

Buddha's Dharma Mendocino County Chenin Blanc

2017 part of a 3-year vertical
This one is head-and-shoulders beyond the 2015/2016. Ripe apple, slightly honied, wooly, underripe stone fruit.

Guido Venturi Vineyard Charbono 2016

Thoroughly enjoy the slightly lower alcohol level, strong dark berry on the front, and medium (to even slightly below medium) tannins. A wine that one can enjoy with or without food. — 10 days ago
