Private Selection Monterey County Cabernet Sauvignon

Very tasty. A strong nose with ripe plum and blackberry plus a hint of leather. On the palate it bursts with purple fruit and a piquant oak, from aging in Bourbon barrels. Solid but mild tannins on the spicy finish and some mineral aftertaste on the tongue. A very happy wine to drink while contemplating the meaning of life. Buy a case because the first bottle will be gone too soon, and then you'll have to drink something else! — 6 days ago

Cotes du Crow's Grenache Syrah 2016

Super ripe fruit. Nice structure, good acid and just a little tannic from the Syrah. Juicy, crushable, what's not to like. — 8 days ago

Five Shooter Grenache 2010

Another 4th Friday for the books. What a much needed time out of the house and to be with friends after this past week.

It’s SQN, so descriptions normally fall short. I am partial to US Syrah vs US Grenache, BUT, I am fascinated by SQN’s play on Grenache. You could smell the black peppercorn here, imitating a top shelf CdP. It faded to a more iron/jerky like note that had a very solid amount of acidity in play. Still a baby. After time in the glass it gave way to some floral/lavender notes as well as a crazy complex finish that added baking spice and dark fruit.

@Kimberly Anderson : Thank you for the kind words. It’s been a hard week...hopefully the hardest week my wife and I ever have to endure, but we are hanging in there. She was thankful to get out of the house and enjoy some wine for the first time in 9months!
