Russian River Valley Rosé Blend 2016

It's almost criminal not to drink a great Rosé on a day like today. Pale rust color with a bouquet of strawberries, watermelon, and pink grapefruit. Super crisp and so bone dry with exceptional balance, as befitting a Ramey wine. 100% Syrah, this is all Provençal. Cranberries, more strawberries, peaches, and rose petals on the nose. Dry, peppery finish with a nice touch of minerality. Second labels are definitely where its at people. — 5 years ago

Old Vine Mokelumne River Zinfandel 2018

Nose is fairly unique for a Zin, with bloody raw lamb, funk, intense green peppercorn, and blackberry juice. In the mouth, it’s not jammy or fat, but surprisingly chiseled for Lodi, with rich blackberry essence that hits the mouth and then evanescently turns savory. The only Lodi giveaway is the low acidity. Bone dry. Finish is pretty tenacious. Great value.

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!

UPDATE: After a couple of hours, the green peppercorn calmed way down, and the fruit and earth moved to the fore.

Estate Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

15 years ago today was our biggest Cab day of harvest. I refused to watch TV all day until I could go home, view the images and cry. Tonight we raise a glass in honor of all the firefighters and police who lost their lives, the citizens trapped in buildings and airplanes, the pilots, crew, and passengers, and all those left behind. We shall never forget! (Sidebar: the wine is tasting awesome and can age another 15 years!) — 6 years ago

Il Rosé di Casanova Prugnolo Gentile - Sangiovese Rosé Blend 2017

Terrifically mineral and just-underripe strawberries. A beauty of a wine with beast on the bottle. Taken down in the sidebar at Covell. Proper wine for cheers-ing to chosen family. — 4 years ago
