Clajeux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Getting a little long in the tooth, but still very solid. The fruit has faded a bit and the mid palate has fallen away. Still clean and well balanced with dusty tannins. — 11 days ago

Chalk Hill

Estate Bottled Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2019

I was in the mood for Sauvignon Blanc that had more to say for itself than “hi, I’m Sauvignon Blanc” to which I’d theoretically reply “do I LOOK like a Basic B? Huh? Whatcha gonna say about THAT Savvy B?” Kidding, I’d never do that but if I were the type to be so insulting this wine would not bear the brunt of my wrath because it is more than SB spiritually and literally (there’s 8% Sauvignon Gris in the mix). It is understated. Sort of hinting first at greens, then grapefruit and lemons. On the palate it is quite elegant, bringing in honeysuckle and zip. It does a graceful dance over your tongue, a petite allegro but slightly slowed down, not too fast too follow if you happen to be it’s dance partner.
If you like your SB to slap you around and make you say it’s name this may not be your jam, but if you want a little intrigue, this one’s for you.

Rose Mission

Tart, crunchy red fruit: strawberry, red cherry, cranberry, rhubarb. Pink grapefruit, black pepper, green olive. Super juicy and light with a mouthwatering burst of acidity and pretty low alcohol. — 22 days ago

Reserve Wilmeth Vineyard Dolcetto 2018

Good wine, really enjoyed it. Balanced and full bodied, but light enough to drink when hot outside. Not sweet or dry. Would have and buy again. — 20 hours ago

Lingua Franca

Bunker Hill Chardonnay 2016

Really compelling. Powerful, complex, well integrated. Great citrus snap up front weaving in juicy orchard fruit, green herbs (is it chervil? I think it might be!) marine elements and finishes with a dollop of rich buttery lees — 17 days ago

Allusions of old gun smoke circa 1776?

Walker Vine Hill Syrah 2005

2005 Vintage.14.8% Alcohol. Need to open with an Ah So type opener, not a corkscrew as the corks have become brittle over time. Thank goodness for the thick bright blue wax seal as it likely saved this bottle from being corked. — 8 days ago

Vista's Edge Cabernet Franc 2016

Getting deep red nose on it. Deep red color to it. On first sip, tobacco. Cherry and blackberries. I get hints of vanilla, and oak. Tannins feel balanced. It's quite a treat. Has so much complexity to it. Lingers in your mouth. Lots going on. Great on it's own. — a month ago

Plum and earthy scents of oak. Full bodied with flavours of ripe cherries, chocolate and a tad of smoke. Long finish with noticeable but pleasant tannins.
