Kyla Kuhlken Vineyard Tempranillo Rosé 2019

This wine shows a beautiful salmon orange color, along with a nose of strawberries, an herbal quality and tangerine peel. The palate lays out red cherry flavors laced with citrus minerality and a razor-sharp acidity which really refreshes. It is bold and even brawny, in a way - unusual for a sparkling rosé but entirely welcome. — 13 days ago

The Beast Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The tamest vintage I’ve had. Soft, refined, almost round (relatively speaking for the producer). Lacks the kick in the shorts usually delivered by The Beast. I mean that in a good way. — 16 days ago

Spicewood Vineyards

Blend 2 Sangiovese Blend 2018

This bold wine is quite dark in the glass and it offers up a nose of black raspberries, cedar, clove, vanilla and a hint of mint. On the palate, it’s brawny. Big notes of dark fruit mingle with those oak spices in a way that’s both fruity and savory. The tannic structure is toothy, so this wine wants a steak. — 3 days ago

Diamond Creek Vineyards

Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 1987

Remarkable how this has held together considering the abuse the bottle when through. A light green quality runs through suggesting it may have been quite angular in its youth. A very delicate black fruit quality and rich tannins still running through. — 3 days ago

Sojourn

Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

1.5+hr decant. Dark red color with hints of rust and purple. Lovely nose of dark cherries and cedar, which is the highlight. Great texture but restrained and thinning. Starts out like a nice Bordeaux then turns into a classic Napa Cab then becomes very average mid palate. So much promise but doesn’t deliver. Needs more depth and flavor. As the wife said, very nice but probably a ~$50 bottle not an ~$85+. — 9 days ago

Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc 2019

I feel like it’s so tricky to rate this one because as a wine overall, it’s lovely but I feel like it should definitely be more in the Chardonnay category while I do love a buttery Chardonnay, it’s not what I expect in my Sauvignon Blanc; However this is what you will find in this bottle. While I think this is a lovely wine, I would categorize it for a light bodied Chardonnay lover — 6 days ago

Deep, dark, brooding, and great balance. You can tell it’s Hunnicutt but the fruit is different. — 17 days ago
