On the nose; green apple, ripe pineapple and light citrus blend on the nose. Chalky mineral & yellow lilies. The body thick, creamy & nice texture. Ripe, near candied lemon drops, lime, green apple, very ripe pineapple, honeysuckle, soft chalkiness, soft minerals, yellow lilies and a rich round nice finish. — an hour ago

Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2013

So this is my first wine from this producer. The nose is jammmmmy but it mellows and is great on the palate. Some pepper notes but the fruit dominates. Near perfect pairing for smoked BBQ ribs on the Big Green Egg. Great end to Sunday funday. Cheers🍷 — 6 days ago

Nice. I bet that is tasting nice now. That vintage needed some time (we drank all ours too early).

As expected, this 2015 is just excellent. Cherry, tobacco and a vanilla cream. Give it plenty of time to open up and you won’t be disappointed. — 3 days ago

Mancini Ranch Zinfandel 2012

I've been blinded a few times on zin lately and they've thrown me off because I'm expecting high alcohol zin versus all this sub 13.5 zin. This is old school, juicy light peppery a lot of red cherried fruit and red florals. 12.9%. It's hard for me to say whether I like the big fat zin or the primitivo-esque style more. Believe these are from his own clones as well. — 8 days ago

Kirkland Signature

Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2015

Color of light gold. Nose is nutty, salty, a bit flowering note , and light on fruit note with some ripe banana. Taste is a bit too plain, with some spicy and flowering note, a bit zest, a bit nutty and oaky, and mix of acidity and salty minerals. Overall, it is on par but I feel the flavors are a bit too vague. — 9 days ago

Saitone Ranch Zinfandel

Hails from a vineyard planted 123 years ago in Russian River AVA. Intoxicating aroma of boysenberry, vanilla and black pepper. Intense dark fruit flavors and the prototypical Carlisle finish. Still going! 300 case production. — 8 days ago

En Tirage

Extra Brut Recently Disgorged Sparkling Pinot Meunier

Without exaggeration one of the most unique wines I’ve ever had in both background and taste. Story is pretty cool. Check it out as I couldn’t do it justice. As far as the wine, I’ve had some higher end aged champagne and this is close in someway but very much it’s own things. In my opinion, primarily chalky mineralogy and toast notes, but it makes up for it with creamy flan notes with fading strawberrys giving a bit of a lift. More predominantly this had an lovely Sherryesque quality with some honey notes. Encouraged every aspect of my wine geek side. — 2 months ago

What else do we do on Friday afternoons in Minnesota in February? We golf anyway, just indoors. With a nice Russian River Chard. 😀 Steely stone fruit and a sweet note on the finish. Really tasty. Cheers all! — a day ago

Special thanks to @Jason Marcelle for sending this after our Cyclones took care of his Memphis Tigers in the Liberty Bowl. Nice choice! Cherry notes and creamy raspberry on the palate. Delicate yet delivers a punch. — 7 days ago

Dark plum jam in a glass. Fantastic flavors of dark plums and blackberries wrapped in a spice jar. Deep finish very complex. Love it! — 3 days ago
