WITTERS VINEYARD ROSÉ Gamay 2020

Alder Yarrow
9.4

One bottle of rosé is never enough on a perfect afternoon with friends. And since @jolielaidewines went all Gamay on us this year, we gotta get with the program. Trademark deliciousness here, with silky berry and hibiscus and citrus peel plus a cool hint of floral sweetness in the finish. Grows in what can only be described as the OG Gamay vineyard planted by Steve Edmunds and Ron Mansfield at 3300’ of elevation in the Sierra Foothills. Killer site = killer fruit = killer wine. — 7 days ago

Black Label Gold Angel Red Blend 2019

Full flavored with plums and cherries, almost has a Pinot Noir terrior taste. Does not finish as strong as it starts, needs 2-3 years more maturity. — a day ago

Amador County Chenin Blanc 2015

9.2

With five and change years on it, this wine is beginning its transformation. What were bright and juicy lemon and quince in youth are starting to take on more steely, herbal notes as savory and saline elements come to the fore. The color, if anything is even more youthful than before, holding a greenish tinge along with its blonde highlights. Killer acidity still reigns supreme here for complete refreshment. Gonna save a bottle or two and see where it goes in another 5 years. — 18 days ago
