Nice oak and bourbon scents, combined with a full flavor, void of strong tannins. It is young and benefits from decanting. — 2 days ago
Bourbon barrels were delish, let it breathe 10 minutes and it paired nicely with my Hillstone Chopped Chicken Salad. — 12 days ago
Nose is charred fruit. On the palate, dark cherry, more charred fruit, minerals and sweet oak. A classic Monterey pinot at a great price point. — 3 days ago
Wednesday Wine Committee hosted by Dan. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. Tasted blind as usual.
Seemed over the hill to me. Little bit of burnt rubber on the nose, which took me to South African Cabernet or Chinon. Not much acidity. Good bit of pepper. Old black cherry. Not sure how common this is for the vintage. — 5 days ago
Fruit forward, with ripe strawberries up front, a delicious rose. Not too sweet, I hasten to add, as after the fruit we have a rich minerality - is minerality a word? Oh bother, anyway, the citrusy finish lingers pleasantly, right up to the next sip. This could go on and on. — 3 days ago
An enchanting pink of the palest complexion. Strawberries, watermelon, sugar, and dried roses on the nose. I expected a more than above average Rosé from these guys but this is a bit special. Light bodied, almost ethereal in nature, there’s plenty of nice acidity and a graceful mouthfeel. The sweetness provides good balance with the acidity. On the palate, there’s very pleasant stone minerality, more exuberant citrus fruit, and cinnamon. A touch of tart apple on the medium finish. Really, really nice stuff. — 3 days ago
