Brys Estate

Estate Grown Pinot Noir 2016

This medium-ruby Michigan Pinot Noir has a savory nose featuring cassis and coffee, with a touch of smoke wafting up. The bold palate shows blackberry and white pepper in force. The lively mouthfeel is more tannic than a Pinot would suggest, making this a great pair with a meat dish, from pork to bolognese pasta. — 15 days ago

Yountville Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Yountville Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon from Grgich Hills Estate. 2014 no less!!!!! Remember the 04’s? The 2014 cabs are like the old Cali 04 cabs used to be. This one is no exception. An excellent year for CA cabernet sauvignon. Three words here: chocolate, spice, and oak! The finish is dry. The emotion is WOW! More please. — 8 days ago

Pleiades XXV Old Vines Red Blend

This is another time-traveler wine. Its ripe, slightly pruny, spicy aromas remind me of various Novarese (now called “Alto Piemonte”) or Veronese Ripassos from the 70s and early 80s. Lots of clingy dark fruit, leather, and other savory notes. Satisfying and completely working class in the best way. — 5 days ago

This is the dogs bollocks. Get yourselves up to speed with my metaphor. My close bud Zach hooked me up.
It’s fruity, zesty, poppin, just how I like my beer. This is right up there with the Belgian beers.

Parker Coonawarra Estate

First Growth Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

Quite dark crimson in colour - dense from this warm ripe vintage. Coonawarra mint with herbs, blackberry and cassis. Medium to full bodied palate needing more cellar time to develop complexity. Finishing with medium minus Tannins. Not particularly Cabernet - more like a ripe Barossa red. This wine is obviously the product of a warm vintage but the quality of the grapes is obvious. One of the premium Cuvées in the Coonawarra. Next one in 2 years. — 20 days ago

Artezin

Old Vine Mendocino County Zinfandel 2017

This medium-dark Mendocino Zin sports a playful nose of strawberry and boysenberry with a cinnamon twist. On the palate, raspberry and cherry play off of one another in front of a spicy backdrop. The tannins are smooth. The wine drinks young and breezy.

Old Vines Mendoza Cabernet Franc 2016

My first Argentine Cab Franc. This is New World in every sense, but the oak is integrated beautifully and the wine is balanced and classy. Crimson color, nose of brambly, super-lifted red and blue fruit and subtle baking spices. Acid and tannin are in striking balance, and the finish is pure and long. Not overly complex, but certainly delicious. — 17 days ago

Wind Gap Wines

Sceales Vineyard Old Vine Grenache

A nose of fresh strawberry.

On the tongue, this offers up more tart fruits, cranberry, raspberry, skin tannins - the inside bits that you cannot seems to chew fully - white, black peppers, wild acidity. Long, chewy, and very lime zesty. An interesting Grenache from Cali.

Nisia Old Vines Rueda Verdejo 2016

Crisp pear, green apple, lemon verbena and honey leaping out of the glass. Very lively acidity, both round and supple in the middle. There’s a (dare I say) Chenin Blanc kind of flavor and aromatic profile to this that I love. Versatile, complex and fresh. — 18 days ago
