I’ve had 3 cases of it in the last few years. I’m a club member. They constantly offer me big discounts on the wine. I rarely say no!

Tepusquet Vineyard Viognier 2015

We opened the 3 L bottle of this wine for a holiday party. It got rave reviews and I rated it highly compared to other years and the average. Probably some of the magic of a 3 L bottle where the wine keeps better than in a 750 ML. — 5 days ago

Bien Nacido Vineyard Hillside Estate Roussanne 2012

This could age comfortably for a long time but it’s fabulous now. A little above cellar temp seems to be the ticket! — 11 days ago

Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah 2009

When I was 19, my boyfriend, “J”, and I went backpacking at Big Sur. We camped in a little grove at the feet of giant sequoias next to a babbling stream whose shore was blanketed in fuzzy moss and delicate dancing ferns. The air was pregnant with a dampness that coaxed more smoke than flame from our humble cooking fire. We made pasta, which fell onto the ground, collecting bits of bark and dirt that, “would add more flavor” J happily exclaimed- I was suspicious. This syrah is that place in my glass. Earthy, smoky, mossy, tinged with delicate red fruit and a surprising acidity. But, much like J and I naively scrambling to care for ourselves in the wild, this wine needs a little more age to become the fullest version of itself. — 10 days ago

Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2015

This Pinot Noir brings me home to the beauty of the Santa Maria Valley. I was so exciting to find this wine in Nashville. This wine is peppery and bright, beautiful color & a bit bigger than most Pinots, paired with a black & bleu burger — 2 days ago

Lieu Dit

Santa Maria Valley Gamay

I was very skeptical even though this bottle came highly recommended. How could can Gamay really be. The answer is extraordinary. This fresh, funky wine was very complex with a finish that continues unendingly. The dried cherry is there but I’m the background. A wine that @Ted Corvey would love. — 19 hours ago
