The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Tasty. Fruit here is a tad sweeter than most Burgundies. 14.1% abv. Reminds me a bit of the 2018 Drouhin 1er Clos des Mouches, I had recently in France. — 9 days ago

Oak Ridge Vineyard Gewürztraminer 2018

Ok, first off this is the Gewürtztraminer Orange, or an orange wine version with lots of skin contact in the making. Second, it’s on the old side with lots of sediment on the bottom. That said, let’s dance: brownish orange hue, very good clarity but with sediment (yeast, lees, funk we should not dwell on as we partake). Some floral and spice notes in nose, faintly. Dry, lots of skin tannins albeit mellowed, spice, GT fruit and good acidity in mouth. Probably past its peak but still drinkable. Room temp preferred. Hope the winemaker keeps making this one. Also pairs well with a revisit to the original 1998 anime version of Cowboy Bebop. — 17 days ago

Torre Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Needs Another 10-15 years, has the Montebello nose but still too tart on the first glass. Give it a 4 hour decant if you’re opening anytime soon — 6 days ago

Rocky Ridge Rockpile Zinfandel 2014

While a bit of age has softened this, you still get some of the pepper and spice along with soft dark berries, some light tomato and maybe even a hint of cherry at times. — 8 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Geyserville Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2013

Enjoyed on Naveen’s birthday in 2021. Zesty zin grapes had mellowed into a beautifully balanced, rich wine with layers of smooth fruit tinged with earth and a touch of oak. A spectacular example of Ridge wine making. — 5 days ago
