Mezcolanza Zinfandel Blend 2012

Watchin’ the Celts and drinking a decidedly old school Zin. Only 13.2%, the grapes originate from rocky mountain terroir. Classic Zin nose of brambly, inky blackberry, and cracked rock minerality. In the mouth is where it diverges from most current-day fruit bomb Zins. It’s relatively lean, with noticeable dynamic structure and great acids. The fruit is there, but it doesn’t smother other aspects of the wine. Retro in the best way. This would absolutely strut with tagliatelle in bolognese or papardelle with duck sauce. — a month ago

Sounds great. Never seen that label before.

Reserve Chardonnay 2016

I might have reviewed this at the time of purchase, but I follow up review to say that it is still all that and a bag of chips! Sincerity and purity of flavor, just enough oak and texture from its aging, and length and width to be world-class!  — 4 days ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

A very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, chocolates, tobacco and herbs.

Bone dry on the palate, and full bodied with medium acidity.

Needs time to open up properly.
Still young and needs a few years in the bottle to mature properly.

Wine Advocate 92 points.

Spicy and tangy finish with firm tannins.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$43.

Côte Bonneville

Carriage House DuBrul Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

Thanksgiving wine #2. 2011 is a challenging vintage and this is definitely at peak. Cedary Bordeaux nose. Classic Dubrul red currant notes on the palate. Tannins are largely resolved, and while there is plenty to enjoy here, drink them if you have them. Happy Thanksgiving! — 6 days ago

This is yummy. Reminds me of the Concord grapes my aunt grew in her backyard. Dark purple in color. The bottle says “the unusual can be extraordinary “. Really good! — 23 days ago
