Bandol Rosé Blend 2019

Alder Yarrow

Oh the jubilation of sitting outside on a beautiful day with people in addition to your immediate family and drinking the good stuff. What can be said about one of the world’s perfect rosés that hasn’t been said. Benchmark bright berries and watermelon citrus snap and mouthwatering acidity. Fresh and clean and disappears almost instantly on a warm day. Please sir, may I have some more? — 8 days ago

Fall Creek Vineyards

Salt Lick Vineyards GSM 2017

Say hello to my first Texan wine.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Gorgeous nose of blueberries, cooked plums, violets, light oak, vanilla, wildflowers, light herbs, spices, tobacco and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, vinaigrette, coffee, light oak, vanilla, earth, licorice, spices and black pepper.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and peppercorn.

This is a nice surprise. This GSM blend is drinking very nicely now. Showing a great nose with a nice mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting. Soft and rich.

Good right out of the bottle and a good wine to have all by itself, or with food. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.

Spicy, fruit forward and interesting. A nice porch wine that I paired with cheeses and crackers.

A blend of 60% Mourvedre, 36% Syrah and 4% Grenache. Aged in French and American oak barrels for 18 months.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Notre Vue Estate

Sparkling Rosé Syrah Blend 2019

Notre Vue Estate Winery Sparkling Rosé 2019, Chalk Hill, California

Pretty color of light orange.

Nose of earth, light strawberries, citrus, limes, grapefruits, light peaches, spices, river rocks and herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium size bubbles, and medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with strawberries, raspberries, spices, herbs, green apples, red grapefruits, limes and spices.

Medium plus on the finish with limes.

This is a very enjoyable Vintage Sparkling wine from Chalk Hill. A very nice GSM blend. Nicely balanced and refreshing.

Shows nice balance between the fruits and earth notes, although earthier than I expected. Showing mild complexity, tangy and refreshing.

Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.

I paired it with caviar, cheeses and crackers.

A blend of 52% Syrah, 32% Grenache and 16% Mourvedre. A very small production of only 180 cases.

13.1% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Nemesis Paso Robles Syrah Blend 2013

One of the older LCs we have, this is 82% syrah, 14% mourvedre, and 4% grenache. Matt’s wines can be a bit hit or miss after this much time - I think they show best a bit younger - but the syrah-dominant blends definitely fare better with time. Likely already starting on the downslope, this one is still drinking really well, but I wouldn’t recommend letting it sit in your cellar for too many more years if you have a bottle or two. Enjoy it now. — 11 days ago

John Duval Wines

Plexus Shiraz Blend 2015

Medium to full crimson in colour. I love GSM - or as this wine is SGM with Shiraz predominant. Spicy Tarry red berry aromas. All the varieties blend well here but overall it is very Barossa. John Duval, the winemaker, was once Penfolds Chief Winemaker from 1986 to 2002. There have only been 4 Penfolds Grange winemakers - Max Schubert (creator in 1951), Don Ditter, John Duval and now Peter Gago the current Chief Winemaker since 2002. A wine that goes well with food or has the substance to do equally well on its own. — 4 days ago

I tasted the Entity bottling, and it was very good as well. Would love to try this GSM blend.

Have not had a lot of experience with Duval wines under his own label but he would have excellent connections with the growers from his days with Penfolds.

Sinister Hand Columbia Valley Red Rhone Blend 2017

Nose is quite complex, with lilies, sweet red berry juice, smoldering cinders, and sandstone. It attacks the palate with flavors and sensations but not weight. Intense cracked stone minerality, dark piercing cherry fruit, a slightly bitter note to balance the lingering finish. A really good value and flexible wine. Definitely showing its majority Grenache make-up. — 7 days ago
