Alesia

Fairview Ranch Vineyard Syrah 2005

We were so fortunate to have Jeff Brinkman, Rhys’ winemaker for the past 15 years, join our tasting of nine Rhys Syrahs from 2003 - 2013. I liked this Alesia, Fairview Ranch, a year after the “bret incident’, I liked the “good” bret on this one. — 8 days ago

Caraccioli Cellars

Limited Production Escolle Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir 2020

Tart plum, underripe peach, cooked strawberry, quince, mandarin orange, lemon, hints of white pepper, with a prominent mineral backbone. So much going on with a wide flavor profile. Medium minus alcohol and high acid. — 6 days ago

Miura

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2017

A new producer for me, and while it was good, I wasn’t impressed. Lots of other pinots I prefer at or below this price point. — 13 days ago

Loring Wine Company

Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

A bit fruit bomby on opening but mellows nicely as it airs. Muddy/sedimenty which I love. A touch acidic. Turns really good after 90 mins. Expecting great longevity with the screw cap - convenient since I’m flying solo this weekend — a day ago

29 Yr Blackadder Raw Cask

The Blackadder Raw Cask results in black specks/spot in the bottle. That’s due to them doing no filtration including barrier. In fact, people say they go out of their way to ensure each bottle has sediment as part of the bottling. This is potent at 51.5% and you notice it. That said smooth and I did not add water. Comes across as sweet to start and then the alcohol hits. Still it’s a full mouthfeel and velvety on the tongue. Calling best of the night. — a month ago
