Schramsberg Vineyards

Methode Traditionnelle Brut Blanc de Noirs Pinot Noir 2015

Jack and Jamie Davies revived the historic vineyards and cellars in 1965, with a goal to produce world-class sparkling wines, passing torch to their son Hugh. A blend of 81% Pinot Noir and 19% Chardonnay (blend varies each year) with stone and berry fruit aromas and earthy spice. On the palate the light mousse shows raspberry, peach and mango flavors with biscuit and slight baking spice notes. Long finish, lively acidity ending with citrus and yeasty tones. Grab a bottle for Valentine’s Day. — 4 days ago

Buddha's Dharma Mendocino County Chenin Blanc 2017

Good fruit (old vine, 1944) really liking the mineral aspect and neutral barrel with possible slight brett (or natty wine note, savory, good) . 12.2 ABV is fantastic.

High Valley Vineyard

Petite Sirah 2011

Dark ruby in color with a short and cloudy, reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, cooked cherries, dried figs, licorice, oak, vanilla, vinaigrette, tobacco leaf, cocoa, coffee, black pepper, dark chocolates and spices.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, raisins, dried figs, tobacco, wood, vanilla, cloves, coffee, chocolates, cola, light vinaigrette, peppercorn and spices.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and chocolates.

This is a delicious 9 year old Petite Sirah from Lake County. Very tasty with a lot of chocolate notes. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle, and did not need much to open up. Peaking now.

Thank you Elvira for sharing.

Not from a great vintage, but this is showing very nicely now. Tasty, rich and delicious.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$25 (current vintage).

Sativa Mendocino Carignan 2016

Blood-ruby, undiluted tenor from rim to rim. Blackberry-cran with a smoky coat, violets, raspberry reduction, wild nettle, suede, rose petal, dried cherry, applewood, and gingerly ginger, spare cedar, finest snuff, cherry pit and damp clove spiced nose. All with a slight memory of campfire. Black plum, cedar, violet, dried, sour cherry, dark leather, peppercorn, dried cranberry and red currant, cinnamon apple, fine, grippy tannins that integrate into the whole with a pleasing sense of herbs and bitters, sage and lavender. Did not expect this complexity from carignan, and floral notes that evoke like Nebbiolo. Class. .

Pranqster Belgian Style Golden Ale

Prankster

Light haze to bright gold with a tinge of tangerine. Atmospheric and fast head forms and deconstructs in a swirl to cobwebs. Mantis lacing. Yeasty-brussel sprout-y, yam-earthy, baked orange, caramelized leek, and dried grapefruit savoriness to the rustic aromatics. Supple citrus blobs of soft orange and grilled lemon and grapefruit bob in a nutritional-yeasty soup of acorn squash and malty carrot, a nano pepper, and even less cedar or cinnamon bark. We would be splitting hairs to go further, but there are gingery spices and ginseng suggestions, ghosts of allspice and serpent breath. Pranq it up!

North Coast Sauvignon Blanc

P A
9.0

Our first time with this this Californian Sauvignon Blanc, we saw it before heading back across the border noticing the “Wine Enthusiast” tag giving it a 90 point rating and said “What the Heck” buying our duty free limit. A delightful and approachable wine is so different from the Sauvignon Blancs that we are use to. Representing an amalgam from selected North Coast vineyards it offers a balanced citrus and floral notes that are distinctive yet not overwhelming. We tasted grapefruit, green apple, washed stone and hints of straw combined into wonderful juicy finish. We will be buying this one again. 13.5% alc/vol. ~$16.00 USD Cheers 🍷🇨🇦🇺🇸 — 15 days ago
