Fenaughty Vineyard Syrah 2018

Revisiting this first release of Fenaughty Vineyard Syrah 2 years later and I really like where it’s headed. Less fresh and crunchy and more resolved and elegant, showing its depth and layers. fleshy black cherry, strawberry, pastille, dried herbs, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, incense and a granitic note. Reminiscent of Cru Beaujolais more than northern Rhone. 12.6% abv. An intriguing alpine California Syrah and an ideal pairing with rustic Berkeley-bought, French-inspired fare. — 16 days ago

Terra d'Oro

Amador County Rosé Blend 2020

This wine was incredible. It had hints of clean water, sun, warmth, and rocks. I drank slowly because each sip was packed with images induced by flavors. I could have drank the entire bottle. Ate it with Asian-fusion cuisine. — 20 days ago

Shake Ridge Ranch Petite Sirah 2019

This was interesting in a great way. It was like a tropical fruit cup with herbs and some forest thrown in. Maybe my favorite from this winery so far. Shake ridge ranch continues to blow my mind with anazing wines from multiple different producers. — 16 days ago
