A delightful discovery. A very small producer who is just going commercial after years of garage winemaking. He is off to a great start. — 11 days ago
First, this wine was previously in a grey bottle, Why? Beginning with the 2017 vintage, the wine is in a clear bottle, which to me has a much better appeal, to see the wine! Fruit sourced from Monterey County, pale lemon-lime color with aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and slight biscuit notes. This wine is unoaked and fermented in stainless and concrete tanks. On the palate, crisp, with flavors of apple, melon and peach adding in some citrus zest. Balanced acidity, medium body and finish ending slightly on the creamy side. Drink young while its fresh!

On this day, the doorstep to the weekend, Friday I have chosen the 2014 Saarloos & Sons Farmer Syrah.
The nose reveals lush dark fruit of blackberry, blueberry, black currant, chocolate, cured meat, clove, allspice, black olive and dark rich earth.
With the first sip the palate reveals beautiful fruit, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, licorice, mint, savory meat, black pepper, oak and dark rich earth.
This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + mouth coating crunchy tannins that pleasingly move into a long earthy finish. This is the day we all look forward to each week so please enjoy your weekend, stay safe and make it the best weekend ever. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 18 days ago
