Silver Oak

Bonny's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Alder Yarrow
9.5

Aged to perfection. Brimming with cedar and bacon fat aromas, favors of forest floor and smoked meats, dried red apple skin and dashi. Beautiful acidity and a wisp of powdery tannins. Bonny FTW. Drank the rest of this press sample with our steak dinner. Check out my writeup on Bonny’s Vineyard on my web site Vinography.Com. Search for it. — 2 months ago

Aslina Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

I haven’t had a new world cab Sauvignon in ages. This maker gets some press as she is working in a former apartheid state, but really this wine deserves kudos: most of all contains tension & a wirey ness that belies its cab Sauvignon credentials. Serious chocolate notes. Drink it on cold room temp side & you will be happy. Good wet winter night wine. — a month ago

Williams Selyem

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2018

Alder Yarrow
9.2

Cherry and raspberry, chopped herbs and a grace note of well-integrated sweet oak. Quite delicious but what really makes this is the phenomenally vibrant acidity, which is positively mouthwatering. Tasted this as a press sample and now drinking it with prayers for @williamsselyemwinery and all of their Westside Road neighbors in the face of these horrible wildfires. — 3 months ago

Nicole et Romain Chanrion

Perle de Gamay White Blend 2018

Unique. Direct press Gamay from Romain Chanrion (son of Nicole) rendering a white Gamay wine. The nose leads you to believe this will be crisp & mineral, but there is a delightful richness on the palate. Plenty of bright citrus & acidity for days, but also a fruity pear note which adds some complexity. A great wine to stick in either a Chablis or Chenin Blanc blond tasting as a ringer. Very nice — a month ago
