Stagecoach Vineyard The Biale Block Zinfandel 2010

Nose has new oak aged blueberry/blackberry juice, blueberry seed, plum skin, mashed over-ripe plum, dark chocolate powder, ripe black cherry and charred red pepper.

Palate has ripe blackberry, ripe black currant, semi-dried plum, dried blueberry, sweetened dried cranberry, blueberry juice, cedar shavings, roasted plum tomato and mild green pepper on the very long finish.

This bottle is in a great spot tonight, but ideally would benefit from another 6-10 years of rest. A fantastic pairing with our slow cooked pulled pork. Sourced from a local to us Columbia Co NY farmer, a Boston Butt with a smoked cayenne rub, well smoked ham hocks and my homemade barbeque sauce, an exceptional match!

Listening to Mike Doughty over a muted Superbowl broadcast tonight, I'm winning my office pool, so everything is turning up roses. 🤓

@Ellen Clifford Biale makes about 6-8 Single Vyd Zins, they age very well. Monte Rosso, RW Moore.

@Ellen Clifford IMHO quality Zin needs 8+ to really soften and start revealing its true self, if you can get them at 14-20 years they are stunning.
@Robert Evans Jr Agreed, Biale MR is my total favorite, still holding a few early/mid 2000's bottles.

@Robert Evans Jr @Severn Goodwin thanks for the intel! And yes, I agree a well aged Zinfandel is a thing of beauty...Every year I buy a bottle or so of A Rafanelli felling myself I’ll hold onto at least one and I always end up drinking them 😬

Harvest of Joy To-Kalon Vineyard Fumé Blanc 2013

2013 and it’s still alive and kicking. As it opens up it begins to express all of its tropical fruit aromas like mango, papaya and passion fruit. It has a creamy aroma and creamy texture from its fermentation and ageing in oak. It’s like a light coconut and white chocolate powder dashed on top. Lovely texture, tight and crunchy, with an orange peel and cream. Long finish. #sauvignonblanc #fuméblanc #mondavi #californiawine #napavalley — 13 days ago

Wanted to raise a glass to Kobe. 1978 was his birth year and the final year that had all the premier fruit! The following year all that amazing juice went to the first bottling of Opus One. This was very emotionally impactful for us. Amazing wine! — 16 days ago
