Los Carneros Pinot Noir 2016

Small production. RSV has under 200 acres of vineyards in 5 Carneros locations & a winery in the Stags Leap District. The wines are 100% organic. Ruby with berry, cherry & spice aromas. On the palate flavors of wild strawberry & cherry with complex spice, citrus, oak and balanced acidity. Fine soft tannins, good balance, long finish with an earthy characteristic ending with notes of vanilla spice. Nice! — 4 days ago

Dry Rosé 2020

Lovely peachy pink.color. Floral notes on the nose. Strawberry tart on the fore palate with hints of Bartlett pear on the refreshing finish. Easy sipping. Consistent throughout the bottle. (Smoked salmon, vegetable medley, crispy sautéed shiitake mushrooms in butter - first dinner this year on the lanai) — a month ago

Mexican Coffee Cake Imperial Stout

Religious philosopher Martin Luther said in the 1500s that wine is made by god and beer is made by man. (As grapes ferment naturally and nothing needs to be added and beer is a recipe). -this is a Mexican chocolate cake stout. It is exactly that and perfectly balanced: chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, habanero (earthy heat). The recipe is spot on. — 3 days ago

Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

Great single vineyard Carneros Chard. The juxtaposition of fresh and nutty flavor is just ingenious; raging from Mayer lemon to macadamia nuts and everything in between. The oak is well disguised. Lengthy finish. Visited and tasted several chards from The Hyde Vineyard and this definitely stars/stands out. Cheers. — 2 days ago

Founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer and sits on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley, with caves that extend for over a mile. Pale lemon with aromas of stone and tropical fruit with sweet oak spice and floral scents. On the palate flavors of ripe peach, melon and apple, with vanilla spice, rich & creamy. Long finish, well balanced with acidity, ending with mineral notes — 11 days ago

Signaterra / Benziger

Sauvignon Blanc 2020

This is the type of SB that I like. There is a richness or fat to it. Light toasted barrel, nectarine and stone fruit that falls off at the finish. Very light acid. Good food wine or sipper. WF — 7 days ago

North Coast Cabernet Franc 2017

Beautiful wine. Easy to drink but a good amount of green pepper so may turn some off. I get spice and pepper reminiscent of loire, but the mouthfeel is so silky like a Napa cab, and then I get some tannin and cedar and dark fruits like a right bank Bordeaux. Fascinating and great deal. It’s like quality entry level wine for cab franc wrapped up in one package. — 4 days ago

Quick note from a charity dinner event. 2nd bottle.
Ripe fruits scented with warm spicy and earthy undertone. Napa meets Oregon. Quite sophisticated. Good cellaring potential. Will look out for some bottles.

Saintsbury

Sangiacomo Vineyards Chardonnay 2018

Maybe the best thing I could say is that if I liked big Cali chards, I would love this. Its beautifully made, I respect it. Its actually not huge, & restrained in so many ways. On nose-ripe starfruit & mango; On palate-Ripe mango, banana (?) blended with iodine & taffy. Medium acid, strong mid palate. Tried it cold & tried a tic above room temp. Prefer colder, as hides some of the tropical fruits, which aren’t my fave. To be fair, I think I would give higher score if this fit my flavor profile better. Its reasonably priced. Good with food-paired with a cavatelli dish with cooked squash & garlic. — 13 days ago
