Damiana Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

@David L thanks for sharing this bottle. I loved every aspect of this wine and so did the crowd. Starts with needing about 45min to open up. A seamless classic Chardonnay. Rich and polished with hints of fig, melon and pear. Hazelnut shows on the finish for a long aftertaste. Excellent. Thanks again David! — 2 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1977

Birth year wine for Protik's 40th birthday! Nice earth and dried red fruits on the nose. Much less fruit on the palate; more leather, smoke, and earth. — 16 hours ago

Proprietor's Reserve Schultze Family Vineyard Pinot Noir 2004

A mini-vertical of 2004, 2008, and 2012 Windy Oaks Reserve for thanksgiving. All showed well, with just slight differences. Hard to pick a favorite. These wines age very well. — 16 hours ago

100% Whole Cluster Pinot Noir 2010

We hadn’t drank a bottle of Windy Oaks that was 7 years old. The Whole Cluster from 2010 didn’t disappoint. Nice acidity to balance the red fruit with a long finish. It went very well with wild salmon. Whole Cluster is quickly becoming our favorite. — 9 days ago

Villa del Monte

Regan Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Nice herbal Pinot, very easy and balanced with excellent tannic finish that’s not overbearing, clear as it should be, some raspberry strawberry blend — 18 hours ago

Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2009

The smells are killing it, just soars from the glass. Herb, incense, dark fruit, spice. Well rounded and palate pleasing with dark red fruit, spice, and even a hint of anise providing nice complexity. Last one of these in the cellar glad it showed well. — 11 days ago
