Brecon Estate

Central Coast Albariño 2020

Light golden in color with a yellow hue.

Pretty nose of tropical fruits, citrus, yellow apples, melons, pears, bananas, pineapples, spices and white pepper.

Medium bodied and refreshing with bright acidity.

Dry on the palate with grapefruits, limes, lemons, green apples, spices and bitter herbs.

Tangy finish with limes and grapefruits.

This is a nice Albariño from California. Good by itself or with food. Tasty and tangy. I really enjoyed the nose here, even more than the palate.

Feels like a Sauvignon Blanc with a twist. Very interesting.

Refreshing and good for parties or the pool. I had it all by itself by the beach.

A small production of 307 cases.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Cépages d'Or Alder Springs Vineyard Marsanne Roussanne 2018

This is a wonderful white blend from California. A great collaboration between a French and a Californian wine makers.

Showing citrus, lemons, apples, pears, minerals, herbs, spices, light earth and white pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with some light RS.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity already. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

I paired it with a duck Pâté with cognac. Delicious.

Donum

East Slope Estate Grown Pinot Noir 2013

150 cases from this east sloping block on their Caneros estate.

Pop and pour. A wondrous medium tawny red color. On the nose: Beautiful expressive nose of cherry, wet tea leaves, strawberry, sandlewood, floral, spice, and vanilla tapioca. Taste: smooth, creamy polished medium plus body wine with easy cherry, orange peel, pine, raspberry, and a spicy herbal tea long finish. Cooler part of their estate and the most Burgundy style of the Donum wines. Cheers!

Abstract Grenache Blend 2016

Interesting blend of Syrah, Petite Syrah and Grenache. Deep purple color. First word that came to my mind was “plump.” Intense and ripe raspberry and dark plum aromas and flavors. Hints of beef jerky, dried roses and cola. Touch of black pepper on the extremely long finish. Soft tannins. Quite jammy but bright and expressive. — 4 days ago

Uncaged North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Completely opaque. Purple and garnet with nice legs. Smells like bold cherry and dark fruit. A little sweet with some tartness I didn't expect toward the end. Cherry, raspberry, blackberry. Light tannin. I wonder how this would taste if I let it sit a while. Pretty good, decently priced. — 5 days ago

Pale gold; pronounced intensity aromas of rose petals, verbena, yellow plum, ripe honeydew melon; off dry, medium acid, medium alcohol, medium plus body, pronounced intensity flavors consistent with aromas; medium plus finish, surprising and lovely, the concentrated perfume lingers, almost flabby, but the incredibly interesting flavors and freshness balance it out — 3 days ago

Mystic Pearl Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Central Coast in California. Showing blackberries, coffee, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, oak, vanilla, plums, black cherries and light vegetables.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward.

Full bodied with medium acidity and a nice mouthfeel.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins.

Still young, but already enjoyable, even by itself. Will age nicely in the next 5 years.

Good right out of the bottle and better with some airtime.

Spicy and tangy. Tasty and easy drinking with mild complexity.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.m by the pool.

Central Coast Viognier 2016

Lovely varietal character, great texture, low-ish but sufficient acidity. This is a gorgeous Viognier showing roses, raspberries, pine apple, Asian spice and yellow flowers.
Maybe a tad short in the finish.

Eagle Point Ranch Grenache 2015

Bee Hunter Wines Eagle Point Ranch Grenache 2015 Mendocino, California

A very pretty color of ruby with a very wide brick rim.

Interesting nose of blackberries, cedar, cooked cherries, raisins, figs, chocolates, sweet vanilla, cola, spices, mint and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with cooked cherries and strawberries, lemon peel, vanilla, light raisins, dried fruits, cedar, herbs, licorice, cola, chocolates, sweet vinaigrette, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Grenache from Mendocino County in California. Much lighter than I expected it to be, but it is so yummy.

This Single Vineyard is good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime, when it shows the complexity.

This six year old is peaking now, and drinking very nicely with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Alcohol is not showing at all, so watch out. Nicely balanced at this point. Easy drinking and tasty.

A great sipping wine, but good with food too. I paired it with Brie cheese and crackers.
