Ocean View

Jefferson's Presidential Select

Ocean Aged At Sea Very Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

The nose is wonderful in my view. Of course the wood is there but there is a lot of brown sugar in it fit me. It reads hot on the palate, viscous with a long finish. Not a full mouthfeel but you still want more. — 12 days ago

Was this a Tasting set?

Arboreus Umbria IGT Trebbiano 2012

This is one of those show stopper wines. Everything about it, the bottle, the color in the decanter, the color in the glass, the smell, the flavors on the palate…nothing out of place. Dried fruit, Oolong tea, ocean spray giving way to a long, gorgeous, generous finish. Almost tannic? This paired beautifully with a bowl of cherry tomatoes that we sautéed in some butter and garlic. This particular bottle was hand-carried back from Umbria. Bottle No. 5867 — 3 days ago

And I’d say actually tannic!

Santiago Ruiz

Rías Baixas Albariño Blend

Dark in color, full body, and fairly acidic. Melon flavor is prevalent, but floral and lime too. Definitely a mineral taste, almost like an strong ocean breeze. — 10 days ago

Morro View Vineyard Grüner Veltliner 2016

Wow! Golden color. A little acidic. Honeysuckle and peach on the nose. Medium alcohol. Medium full body. Sweet but not crazy sweet. — 14 days ago

Andrew Murray

Roasted Slope Vineyard Syrah 2014

To quote Miles: “Andrew Murray. Well okay.” Been a while since I’ve had one of Andrew’s wines, but I recall purchasing this at a Harvest Party a few years ago. Probably on the downslope just a bit, but this is still terrific. I always view the Roasted Slope as his homage to Guigal in my view, and it is a terrific wine. — 15 days ago

I fear we all have more than a “touch” of Miles in us...he’s my hero!

Estate Valley View Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

2016. Nice flavors of dark fruits like black currants and blackberries. Relatively firm taste, so moderate or lower tannins, which is to my taste. — 11 days ago

Melville

Estate Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2018

Fresh and zesty rather than buttery and oaky. Welcome brightness, citrus zest and salty ocean spray. — 4 days ago

Arianna Occhipinti

SP68 Terre Siciliane Nero d'Avola Frappato 2019

Every year a beautiful lean potion of dark fruits and the sea. Plums, dried mission figs, black cherries brined in ocean water and lemon juice with flecks of Maldon. — 14 days ago

Broken Stones Red Rhone Blend 2008

From a few days ago. Excellent, but definitely on a fast evolutionary slope. In my view this is just past peak, so I’d recommend enjoying this sooner rather than later. — 17 days ago
