Monument Pinot Noir

Damn, this is one hell of a blackberry punch! The nose explodes forth with lush, ripe red fruits, velvet, leather, coca and delicate wood notes. The palate has some pretty prominent notes of vanilla, with silky tannins, dark chocolate and explosive strawberry, blackberry and black cherry. Really delicious. — a day ago

Beautifully evolved almost chambertin like. Still deep and with some viscosity but showing a lot of grand cru burgundy notes. Power and finesse. Really glad I waited 10 years on this puppy. Awesome @Jeff Pisoni — 12 days ago

Legend says the curtting are from La Tache but it always tastes more like Musigny. Not a complaint.

Jonata Winery

La Sangre de Jonata Ballard Canyon Syrah 2015

1 hour decant. Old meets new. Striking aromatics of thyme, rosemary, sage, and turkey drippings, sitting atop roasted plum and bramble. Rich and ripe with a plush, velvety mouthfeel. Syrah and Merlot? — 6 days ago
