Shannon Ridge Vineyard

Trisaetum

Ribbon Ridge Estate 2017

13.1%. Dark fruit on the nose. Seems dark to me in the glass. Hint of sweetness - figs. Dark cherries bright and juicy with good acidity. Burgundian in style. This is impressive! Very well done! I would buy this - from the San Diego Wine Co. . This should be available in other retail stores and from the winery it’s worth to seek out. — 5 days ago

Geyserville Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2008

Blackberries, cedar wood, cherries and white pepper. Missed the peak window on this as the finish has faded a bit but still ample fruit. Was still really nice. — 2 days ago

Frankland Estate

Isolation Ridge Vineyard Riesling 2014

Mid Lemon in colour. Developing and putting on weight from 4 years ago and not as austere. Paraffin aromas on the way but not quite there yet - a touch of lanolin. Could cellar for at least another 5 years if desired. Fresh and clean from Frankland River and the Great Southland of Western Australia. Barb and I are heading that way over Christmas and New Year for our first visit taking in the towns of Albany and Denmark. Known for great Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet. — 5 days ago

Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend 2014

Deliciously old school, structured, restrained Zin. Nose has pure spicy blackberry fruit, a whiff of maple syrup, and some almost Tuscan-style dry gravel underneath. Full flavored but with zero jamminess, it’s got the acid and tannin and ripeness to age for many more years. A classic. — 13 days ago

Beaux Frères

The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

More Burgundian than some wines from burgundy. Excellent Oregon Pinot. Subtle red fruit with earthen palate. Love this producer — 2 days ago

Dirty & Rowdy

Shake Ridge Ranch Mourvedre 2016

Typical Dirty and Rowdy fashion. Shake Ridge fruit has always been interesting to me. The nose tends to be much more pronounced than other Dirty and Rowdy Mourvèdre’s. Strawberries, canned cranberries, orange zest. Little grip on the mouth. Cannot wait to see how this wine evolves. Fantastic Thanksgiving wine! — 11 days ago

@Arden Barnett: I think this is always a fun wine. Lighter bodied red that I imagine paired well with your Thanksgiving meal.

I had the 2018! Really cool stuff.

Red Newt Cellars

Glacier Ridge Vineyards Cabernet Franc 2016

Delicate and delicious. Nose has brambles, wild cherry, a whiff of walnut, and gravel. Flavorful but light on its feet, it has a purity of dark cherry fruit that lingers in a long finish. Got some fine grained tannin for a bit of aging. Very nicely done cool climate Cab Franc. Worked well with the Thanksgiving turkey. — 12 days ago
