Barham Mendelsohn

Estate Grown Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2012

Partnership w/Jim Clendenen at Au Bon Climat. Barbara Barham & Richard Mendelsohn planted 5 acres of Pinot on Lala Panzi Ranch in the RRV. They had similar visions on Pinot’s & thus led to this partnership. Aged in predominately new Allier & Vosges wood. Aromas of berry fruits with dusty earthy nose. On the palate, berry flavors come forth with hints of tea & spice. Medium+ length, fine tannins, ending with earthy mushroom character, it was good, lost its luster, at its prime now! — 3 days ago

Gran Reserva Mendoza Vineyard Malbec 2013

Maraschino cherries wrapped in an aged cedar frame… $17 at Costco. The bottle aging was apparent as the corners were nicely rounded ;) — 23 days ago

Saviah Cellars

Reserve Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The 2016 ‘Reserve’ Cabernet Sauvignon by Saviah is another masterpiece by the talented Richard Funk of Saviah. Sourced from the McClellan Estate and Annie Marie Vineyards, the Cabernet shows heady aromatics of dark currants that meld with dark chocolate shavings, tar and black licorice that all march in unison. The palate is dense and decadent with layers of blackberry compote, black licorice candy, creosote and suggestions of Turkish coffee. The long finish lingers as this massive, yet elegant wine has some incredible aging potential. Be sure to give this at least an hour decant if enjoying in its youth.

Domaine de la Pertuisane

Têtu Côtes Catalanes Grenache 2015

Grenache from Catalonia from winemaker Richard Case who makes Dave Phinney’s D66 project out of Maury. The donkey is the symbol of Catalonia thus the label. Beautiful red color and fresh on the palate upon opening. Starts to be a touch oxidative on the second day but still possessing great fruit. Have loved the other wine from Pertuisane and this is also a great example of Grenache from this region. — 17 days ago
