Clarendon Hills

Old Vines Clarendon Grenache 1996

This wine has peaked but is a healthy senior citizen Obvious sweet black fruit. The tannins and oak have faded in the background making this soft and luscious without any hard edges. — 7 days ago

Masca del Tacco

Old Vines Zinfandel 2017

An incredible primitivo for it's value. Shockingly well-balanced with a long pleasurable finish. Fresh raspberry jam and vanilla with a touch of tobacco and oak. Probably one of the best value wines I've had. Enjoyed with suppli, stuffed zucchini flowers, and tonarelli alla carbonara. So good that we had to drink two bottles. — 21 days ago

Cline Cellars

Ancient Vines Contra Costa County Mourvèdre Rosé 2015

Not your traditional rose. Strawberry on the nose and front of palate leading to apples. Some notes of minerality in it as well. Stands up as a good complement to Asian and Indian food. — 2 days ago

South Block Original Vines Pinot Noir 2014

Great depth, lift and intensity. Think most elegant pommard or beaune 1er Cru with a kiss of Cali sunshine. That’s this. — 6 days ago

Quinta do Crasto

Reserva Old Vines ( Vinhas Velhas ) Douro Red Blend 2015

Duoro red blend from old vines. Takes about 45 mins to fully open up. Dark as night with a complex nose. On the pallet it feels rich and complex with an unpredictable finesse and long finish reminiscent of dried plum, vanilla, and a certain earthyness.

Absolutely the best wine I’ve ever tasted from Portugal. I’d say drink up, this is extremely enjoyable at the moment.

Three Wine Company

Contra Costa County Old Vines Zinfandel 2017

What a joy! Rich ruby color leads to an expressive bouquet of cocoa, earthy wisps of violet and just a smidge of cinnamon. Then the body comes along and this is the strong-point of this young Zinfandel- balanced, integrated & juicy- reflecting all the promises of the nose and delivering a truly, surprisingly balanced, mouth-coating finish that is profoundly refined considering its age. — 10 days ago

Four Roses

Limited Edition Small Batch Barrel Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

# 3 on Whiskey Advocate,
Fantastic!


*#3 on Whiskey Advocate's Top 20 Whiskies of 2019.* For the first time in 8 years Four Roses has added a new bourbon to their core lineup. The Small Batch Select is a 104 proof bottling that is made from the following recipes: OBSV, OBSK, OBSF, OESV, OESK, OESF. It's a blend of 6 and 7 year old bourbons and is a worthy addition. It's loaded with spiciness and a bit of sweet fruit on the nose and morphs into vanilla, cigar box, and stone fruits on the palate. It finishes long and clean with a touch of fresh mint lifting it and begging you to sip again.

Yeah like I can taste all that, my palate is fried from Reaper peppers. Those notes are from 4 Roses

The Eyrie Vineyards

Original Vines Pinot Noir 2015

Original vines from Eyrie, perhaps 60 years of age. Nothing to add to Delectables review. Magical old vines pinot filtered throug the Willamette Valley. Worth seeking out and aging. Way young now. 9.5 at least. — 25 days ago
