Mann Family

Corymbia Chenin Blanc 2018

Delectable - this is actually Chenin Blanc and tasted blind with the much older Swan Valley Chenin. Very well made by Robb Mann who was the chief Winemaker at Cape Mentelle. Chenin is very well suited to WA like it is in South Africa. Very ripe apples. Interesting wine. — a month ago

Rochioli

South River Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

Light gold color with cloudy appearance. Lemon fruit on nose but feels thick and flabby in the mouth. Clarity and acidity are lacking. Not “my cup of tea”. — 15 days ago

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

Wanderland Nectarine Ale

Hazy light orange, tiny bubbles, light head on pour. Typical hop-forward nose, in mouth dank hoppy flavors with slight tart nectarine pulp and nectarine stone finish. Not at all sweet so a serious take on fruit ales by the original hops-happy craft brewery out of Chico CA. It will grow on you — 2 days ago

Monte De Oro

Congruity Red Blend 2016

Another delightful year for this 70% Zinfandel/30% Syrah blend. Pleasant nose, smooth as silk light red fruits on the palate with a smoky spicy finish. — 14 days ago

Bergström Wines

'Gargantua Pantagruel' Syrah 2018

Pop, 1hr slow ox, no decant. On the nose: lovely, gamey red fruit, blackberry, blueberry...comes off a touch ripe, but the game notes bring it.back.down to earth...only complaint is a soft chlorine.note on the back end of the nose. On the palate: excellent acidity. and lighter-bodied than I expected, but a pleasant surprise, with loads of energy, a touch of stoniness and some cracked pepper spice. Some chalky tannin on the finish. A very good syrah for my palate, and for the price, downright spectacular. — 6 days ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé Grenache Blend 2020

The beautiful salmon-colored wine displays a nose of cherry, red currant and an herbal hint of spearmint. The palate has a zippy acidity - Grahm says zippier than in previous vintages - and an abundance of red fruit, a citrus peel angle and a touch of tanginess. Salads and seafood, sure, but even better if you’re having them on the deck and can afford to have a few more glasses after lunch. — 8 days ago

Monte De Oro

Vigna Vicini Monte de Oro Red Blend 2017

Yet another excellent vintage. Silky smooth yet bold with complex fruit, spice and smoke that lingers so nicely. — 12 days ago
