This guy @Tegan Passalacqua cant stop drinking these babies. It’s hard to let them age because so graceful and textured even in their youth. Remarkable texture for a 13% abv wine. Nice work sandlands crew. Keep it coming — a month ago

En Passerillage Grenache 2020

Very excited to try this Grenache from Randall Grahm’s new project. It’s super young and was too tight to really evaluate on night 1, so these are night 2 notes.

The color is light-ish, but the nose is inviting, with loads of bright cherry/strawberry fruit, spice, and lovely crushed gravel minerality. Soft in the mouth, the flavors are relatively intense but it maintains a medium weight and silky feel. Great purity and balance. Not a dense wine that will demand attention at a tasting, but a really fine dinner accompaniment (I’m having beef tacos).

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2018

I have the Santa Barbara county Pinot, the app would not take my edit? Anyhow got a "tasting" bottle from our local San Luis Obispo Costco $20.00 a bottle. My wife and I liked it so much just bought a case, before they run out, beautiful rounded taste, nice fruit, well balanced full flavored but not heavy. — 8 days ago
