Demostene Ranch Zinfandel Carignane 2016

Although this is 50/50, the Carignane force is strong in this one. That classic, earthy sour plummy fruit takes the lead, with a noticeable note of American oak. In the mouth, it’s got the buoyancy of the Carignane and terrific fruit density. Dry, nice acid balance, little tannin. I like this a lot. — 2 days ago

Davis Family Vineyards

Rockpile Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Nose has ripe blueberry, over-ripe blackberry, ripe plum, blackberry jam, faint anise, dry cigar, faint wood smoke and a bag of green & red peppers.

Palate has ripe plum, blackberries, black cherry, prune, old chocolate, faint moist earth and light artificial sugar.

Incredibly smooth, light tannins, but what an amazing red blend! Such an easy drinker, but coupled with a great CA vintage, a total win.

Cleaned the grill today, never ever done this in March in the Berkshires! Clean grill and warm weather equals an early start to the grilling season; beef flap steak from Kinderhook Farm (Valatie, NY) tonight, 135°F with 15m rest, beautiful pair to this wine.

41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Cabernet Franc, 21% Malbec, 8% Merlot & 4% Petit Verdot

@Tom Casagrande We gotta take advantage of the warmer weather when we can and grill; on a sidenote iI put the snowblower in the shed today, which certainly means we're gonna get another storm before the season is over.

Whistling Ridge Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Ripe pear, white flower, citrus zest, ocean salinity, damp slate. Broad texture and gorgeous acid gives a backbone that has plenty of life left. Fantastic food wine. Marcus Goodfellow delivers yet again...per usual. — 6 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Estate Chardonnay 2013

Medium gold color. Massive honey on the nose and throughout the palate. Refined with medium plus depth. A little one dimensional and probably slightly past prime drinking age, but I really enjoyed it. — 13 days ago

Unionville Vineyards

Amwell Ridge Counoise 2015

Very solid effort here - 100% Counoise from Central NJ. Yes, the Rhône varietal has verve (acidity) with balance! Medium weight with a feminine bent. Perfect with house lamb burgers w/feta and Tzatziki topping. elderberry and black cherry mango in a Pinot style format. Delish! Easily five more years left in the bottle :) — 12 days ago
