C.C. Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Bottle a case on release of mixed Cabs from N&N. The first few bottles that we opened gave me buyers remorse. Wine was flat. As i got through the years, the wine developed beautifully. Now, this was my last bottle of the case. It was glorious. Tannins evened our and from nose to first sip and Long finish, it was a pleasure. Patience is a virtue. It’s true — 3 days ago

Desire Lines Wine Co.

Shake Ridge Ranch Syrah 2017

It’s pretty easy to over-do Syrah in this location. Desire Lines does a phenomenal job of keeping dessert-like pleasure and seriousness of terroir in check. Lifted and fruited like a modern northern Rhône or Cru beaujolais with a little less seriousness to boot but also this is young and booming. Held straight for 5 days. Get the feeling that this will resolve very slowly over time to show more what earthy and cool characteristics it has in its hand. This wine feels extremely stable and a kaleidoscope of possibilities lay herein. — 4 hours ago

State Ranch Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Bright red fruit flavors (not jammy) with hints of dried herbs, tobacco and smoke. Minerals on the very long finish. Amazingly soft for such a young wine. — 2 days ago

Coho

Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir 2014

Full disclosure: I freaking LOVE the wines from Coho. Every one, and have become acquaintances with Gary Lipp (a fellow Clevelander and long-suffering. Browns fan)- who has been a major force in bringing this delightful estate to life. I’m a huge fan, so there’s that. Expectations are extremely high for this ‘14 Stanley Ranch Pinot. I’ve had seven vintages of this beautifully-sourced Pinot- and from ‘14 I’m expecting great things. And those things are present ;).
I didn’t decant, just a bit of a breathe and she’s already opening and evolving. Yes there’s “bing cherry”- but that’s only at the foundation of the structure, which is rounding-out and expressing itself with a serious and embracing intellect on the palate. I don’t think I’ve ever had a more interesting conversation with a California Pinot. The mid to the finish is my favorite element of the entire experience. It’s smooth as Hopper’s Blue Velvet, and yet delightfully defined.
