Ridge Vineyards

East Bench Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2013

Loaded brambly fruit overwhelmed our braised short rib. Reserve for grilled meats or cream sauces. Still, a fruit bomb I can get behind. — 3 days ago

Dark ruby and bold mouth feel. Too big for our braised short ribs, but decently structured for the truffle Mac & cheese. Ridge never disappoints. We will just need to pair it better next time.

William Hill Estate Winery

Bench Blend Napa Valley Red Blend 2014

A lot is going on in this wine. The nose is rich, the palate also. A blackcurrant, a leather, a chocolate. Sweet, deep hints of dark fruit. Too much acidity, medium finish. But 4,5 it's a fair note. — 18 days ago

2914 Riesling had those great mineral notes of an older wine. — 11 days ago


Icewine Gewürztraminer 2016

The 2016 vintage is showing an almost port-like, raisiny quality. Gives a weight to the floral notes. Could drink this forever. — 17 days ago

Platinum Reserve Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


Not to complex very easy to drink. I find this to be a great bottle for people who want a Cabernet with a Pino Noir soft approach. — 23 days ago
