á point at 4.5 years. Even better on day two. Softer structured than Austrian but good varietal aromas and flavors and very food versatile and friendly. — 6 days ago

Virginia Meritage Red Blend 2012

This was worth the 5+ years I waited and invested in this rappahannock co (?) family wine. Really sang herbal harmony with wifey’s perfect Wooloomooloo BeefStew Roast. Tannins have tempered at 7yrs+ to let the sweet red fruit sing a few solo lines. — 5 days ago

Buchignani Ranch Zinfandel Blend 2013

Drinking again after two more years in bottle. Beautiful right now. Excellent tension between acid and big ripe, fleshy blue fruit. Ferrous, spicy, briary fun but with superb elegance. Loving this wine and very sad it is my last bottle. — 12 days ago

Hidden Ridge

55% slope Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

This winery was sold and rebranded to Immortal Estate. This was $55 and then increased (to 75 - 100). Amazing wine at $55 but loses its value around the $70 or so price range.
Silky smooth lush dark fruit, cocoa, and cigar flavors. Drinking very well now right.
The new winery I boycott on the outrageous price increases but these are very good at the right price point.

This was excellent and a nice surprise. Fairly light, but very tasty Mendocino Pinot! — 4 days ago

Valenti Vineyard Syrah 2015

Transparent variety. 100% terroir. I can see why this was on sale. There are likely many who may say this wine is on the downside but I would beg to differ. This seems like it’ll hold on for a while and it’s already completely resolved. So good. Basically no Syrah character here. Might as well be Pinot it is so transparent of its origin. Glad I got a couple of them! — 23 days ago

Mill Block York Creek Zinfandel 2013

Very good wine, but perhaps on the downhill already. The fruit just couldn’t outlive the oak, which I find somewhat overbearing. Slightly oxidative, but with juicy texture and tannins still kicking. — 15 days ago

Shake Ridge Ranch Mourvedre

Nice dark rich garnet..smoke, black fruit, and leather... nice to find a Cali version ripe and pleasurable early. I like the style. — 4 days ago

Occidental Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Wow. Amazing. Aromatics that completely filled the glass and beyond. The tannins that TRB spoke of in his tasting note seem to have integrated very well, as this was like liquid silk. Sad it's my only one. — 17 hours ago

Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend 2016

Such a good wine. Especially for the price. Rich and sophisticated. Plums and cherry, leather and licorice. Lots going on. Nice tanin grip. Delicious. — 4 days ago
