Piña Cellars

Low Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Holy S#!+! Yeah that wa the first thing I said upon tasting. Bright yellow gold. Abundant nose of yellow apple/brown pear dumpling with spices and buttery crust. Full-bodied palate echoes the nose adding a hint of caramel and eucalyptus. Medium acidity from entry to finish, which is long and luxurious. An excellent example of premium Napa Valley Chardonnay at a very good price. Complex on the palate but still an easy drink, the Piña Low Vineyard will pair nicely with heartier white wine fare but especially richly sauced casseroles or lobster in any of its popular forms (boiled and buttered at the top of the list). I’m having mine with salmon in butter garlic sauce. Drink now through 2029. — 6 days ago

Savage Grace

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. — 16 days ago
