Always consistent. Immense early ripe fruit blasting away. It’s not subtle but it never lasts long.

Silver Oak

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Yeah, what can I say. Nice wine for sure, but for some reason when I see the Silver Oak label my expectations rise. Realizing this is the Alexander Valley version. But 2011! Thirteen years old. Still rather single note, strong oak tannins still overshadowed what maybe underneath it. A bit disappointed I am afraid. We pulled it out with my first ever Tomahawk ribeye… so yeah. — 17 days ago

Marcassin

Marcassin Vineyard Pinot Noir 2006

2006 vintage. Decanted and tasted after an hour. Quite a bit of sed. Light-medium/medium body. Sandalwood, plum, orange peel and raspberry all on display here. Good focus remaining. Figure it to cling to this spot for another 4-5 years before going down a notch. 1.19.24. — a month ago

9.5

I may have posted close to a hundred Williams Selyem’s. These are just ok young. It is when they hit 10-15 years they shine. This one is really good tonight after nearly two-hours decanted.

Nose of floral; dark cherries, black plum, blackberries, black raspberries, plum with hues of blueberries. Softly layered baking spices-cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, baking soda, black cherry licorice nibs, red cola, steeped black tea, sandalwood to cedar, sandstone-limestone mixed marl and brilliant, bright, dark, red, blue flowers framed in violets and lavender.

The palate is, rich, lush and juicy fruits of; dark cherries, black plum, blackberries, black raspberries, plum with hues of blueberries. Softly layered baking spices-cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, baking soda, dark spices, black cherry licorice nibs, red cola, steeped black tea, sandalwood to cedar, sandstone-limestone mixed marl, dark, rich, turned earth and brilliant, bright, dark, red, blue flowers framed in violets and lavender, cool, spring shower acidity, excellently; structured, tensioned, balanced with a brilliantly elegant & polished near two-minute finish. Impressive & impressive style.

Merry Edwards

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2021

Medium Ruby color with aromas of red fruits, cedar, herbs and earthy spice. On the palate flavors of cherry and raspberry with toasty notes, tea and cinnamon spice. Full-bodied, fine tannins, long finish ending with juicy fruit, herbs and spicy character. Nice! — 5 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend

Complex Zinfandel field blend, with nice interplay of flavors and textures—fruit, tannin, acid and earth, that evolves in the mouth. Perfumed and drinkable by itself. Fine example of Sonoma County Zin. Tasted the 2021 vintage at the winery. — 2 days ago
