Oakville Merlot 2015

Good Merlot. Refined. Paired with grilled fillet and roasted vegetables, finished with a brush of cool Berkshire mountain air. Lovely. — 10 days ago

I would have expected more from this.

@Ron R me too. This followed a knockout Robert Craig Cab - tastebuds were still firing on all cylinders which may have muted the Merlot on the palate. Won’t do that again.

Kick Ranch Vineyards Home Run Cuvée Grenache Blend 2013

The 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel from Tablas Creek was a tough act to follow, but this elegant Rhône blend from Sonoma just did that.

The nose was quite similar with aroma of blue fruits and earthy elements with hint of violet, it was the palate that set it apart: soft, complex and deep, with great texture and beautiful acidity that adds the tension. Elegant and seamless.

Kale Anderson was the long time wine maker at Pahlmeyer, and Kale wines are all vineyard-specific. Worth seeking out.

Jayson Napa County Red Blend 2016

I’d forgotten just how solid this stuff is. So good. Lots happening here and while this 2016 is drinking really well as is I sense that in some time all the pieces will round together into a more harmonious experience that will be a knockout. — a month ago

Savoir Faire Napa Valley Chardonnay 2013

Definitely not one you see everyday! Was this good? Yes. Worth the buck? It depends. For a bunch of white wine drinkers that want a popular chardonnay, this one delivers. BUT, I dare say that it is probably nearing the downward. Nose is honeysuckle and some lemon. The wine starts out with a nice crisp acidity with a good mixture of tropical and yellow fruits, has some herbal action going on towards the middle. Nice salinity. Little bit of marzipan. Not gonna get any better in the bottle. — 5 months ago

Didn’t even know this chardonnay existed. At the same price as Marcassin, it better blow minds...for me, it fell short on that. Honeyed, caramelized nuts in a powerful and viscous structure. I got an overload of lanolin toward the finish. Would like to try one closer to release as I don’t think this is getting any better at this stage.
