Carneros Pinot Noir 2018

👁This wine is pale ruby with a delicate haze.

👃On the nose, it offers medium(+) intensity of youthful aromas, including notes of ripe cherry, strawberry rhubarb, fresh raspberry, 🍒🍓 also tulip🌷, violet, red licorice, fennel, dill, nutmeg, and wet moss.

👄On the palate this wine is dry. It has med (+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins, and medium(+) intensity of flavors consistent with the nose. It also has a medium(+) finish. I find it has good complexity and balance. 👌👌

This wine was fermented with native, wild yeast in concrete or steel and then aged in neutral oak barrels for about six months. According to the @scribewinery website, it comes from "vineyards planted with equal parts of two California heritage clones ideal for the region’s dense clay: Martini and Pommard. The Martini grapes add spice and fresh, high tones complemented by the Pommard’s natural earthiness."

Scribe, Carneros, XII. Beauty Blue, Pinot Noir, Vintage 2018. ABV 13.5%.

Los Carneros, meaning 'the rams' in Spanish, is a unique wine region because it is shared between Sonoma County and Napa Valley. It is one of my favorite places in Califorina for Pinot Noir. With the coastal breezes and fog channeling inland from San Pablo Bay, the vines have a combination of sun and cooling moderators, to aid in both the ripening and the preservation of acidity / brightness of character, which can ultimately lead to a well-balanced, but also well-concentrated wine.

I picked this up at @france_44 and would definitely buy it again.

Special Cuvée Mendocino Rosé of Grenache 2019

8.9

Quite a fruit filled nose. Candied watermelon, strawberry, and cherry on the palate, but brings a nice amount of acid to offset. Dry and keeps you coming back for another glass. Tasting fresh for being “old news 19s.” — 2 days ago

Pepper as perfume is an odd thought but what if it were and you liked it?! So it is woth this wine. Also that fun mix of dried and fresh fruit Xin excels at. Good times at the old-vine corral! — a month ago

ZD Wines

Carneros and Napa Valley Pinot Noir 2014

ZD Winery began as a partnership of two aerospace engineers whose initials formed the name of the winery: Norman de Leuze and Gino Zepponi. Ruby with ripe berry fruit aromas and toasty spice. On the palate ripe cherry and blackberry flavors with sweet vanilla oak notes, good balance. Medium+ finish, smooth tannins ending with fruit and cacao tones. Drink now! — 18 days ago

Consistently impressed by Lioco. Watermelon rind, fresh lemon, chopped herbs. Grapefruit and smooth river rocks. The rosé and their unoaked chard are great spring/summer staples ~$20 — 7 days ago
