This wine is drinking great. Silver Oak can be pretty tannic, especially the Alexander Valley. 10 years in, that has mellowed and you’re getting some nice fruit and secondary flavors. Chloe V-Day gift. — 8 days ago

The SO Alexanders all need a mandatory, 10 year cooling-off period. After a decade, the ridiculous oak has faded and you're left with an integrated Cabernet that I'd blind taste against anything...ANYTHING from California or Bordeaux. Might not come in first but it will be accounted for. Before that mandatory 10-spot, it's coming in last every single time. Just sayin.'

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2021

Beautiful purity of fruit here. Certainly can tell it’s Pinot from a warmer climate but doesn’t feel heavy or cloying. — 8 days ago

Estate Vineyards Les Pavots Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

2019 vintage. Last tasted 12.2.22. Scored the same. Drinking decently now but just needs a solid decade to get affairs, papers and priorities in order. Unfair to be tasting it this young. 6.2.23. — 3 days ago

Hanzell Vineyards

Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Industrialist James D. Zellerbach acquired the 200 acre Hanzell estate on the Mayacamas slopes in 1948, in 1952 he planted 2 acres of Pinot Noir and 4 acres of Chardonnay on the site. Aromas of red fruits and floral scents with notes of cola and tea. On the palate flavors of cherry, dried raspberry, brewed tea and cola with floral and spicy notes. Smooth tannins, long finish, great balance, ending with earthy mineral tones. Something Special from the oldest Pinot Noir vines in Western Hemisphere. — 14 days ago

Unfiltered Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2017

Popped and poured. Enjoyed over three days and it was more or less consistent throughout. No formal notes. The 2017’s are beautifully balanced with deep, dark fruit; a combination of ripe and dried (but mostly on the riper end of the spectrum) mixed with some lovely baking spices too. Secondary characteristics have not yet entered the frame. Was an awesome pairing with grilled burgers. Drink now or over the next 10-15 years easy. — 3 days ago
