Roar

Lo Nuevo

Sorbo A Sorbo Old Vines Garnacha 2014

Catches your eyes with that red, red rose painting on the label. Dark like a mix of coffee and blood in the glass. Smells opulent and rich. Mocha, berry pie and dill/anise pickles on the nose if that makes any sense. Flavors are big, bold and dense. Bit of smoke, plenty of ripe black cherry, rose hip teas, black salty licorice, and dark chocolate nibs. This is stuff that says, I am Spanish red, hear me roar! But it’s also fairly balanced and holds a silky elegance too. — 3 months ago

Roar

Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007

We had fun coming up with the descriptors of the nose on this one. Twizzler, cherry cough drops, you get the idea. typical of very ripe picking that Roar is known for. — a month ago

Roar

Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Delectable Wine
9.5

Deep, brilliant scarlet. A complex, expressively perfumed bouquet evokes spice-tinged red and blue fruits, exotic spices and potpourri, along with a deeper cola nuance and a hint of smoky minerality. Energetic and seamless on the palate, offering finely etched raspberry, boysenberry, lavender pastille and spicecake flavors underscored by a vein of juicy acidity. Finishes extremely long and spicy, with polished tannins and resonating floral and berry notes. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, October 2020) — 6 months ago

Alturas Yorkville Highlands Syrah 2013

First thought was if the color "purple " had a flavor this would be it. Got a bit more complex as we went further. Some delicate mineral type notes. Label says 13.6 alc and at first I LOVED the balance but the alc crept up later so now I wonder if a little BS on the alc . I like this wine and I'll also say its the first syr I've dug in a looooong time and makes me want to hv another. This is one of my last btls from the first bottling run at Roar in 2014. — 2 years ago

Roar

Rosella's Vineyard Syrah 2018

Maybe the best vintage that I have tasted from Roar. Nose is definitely still closed an hour after decanting. Fruit is rich and what a powe mid-palate! Long finish. Nicely powerful and juicy. Fine tanins. There...enough blabbing. — 5 months ago

Galante Vineyards

Blackjack Pasture Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Cigar box, tart fruit, pepper, and leather with a mineral backbone. Not quite the heft of premier Black Jack vintages and with a little drop off at the end of the palate, but chewy tannins and tingly acid roar back in the finish. — 2 years ago
