Russian River Valley Syrah 2016

The wife and I did a fun Syrah blind tasting with the coravin. We ranked the wines exactly the same. I feel like a Modus Operandi fanboy, but their wines really do perform well in these blind tastings. #1 Modus Operandi 2018 Caldwell Vineyard Syrah #2 Dumol 2016 Wild Mountainside Russian River Valley Syrah # 3 Kimsey 2017 Syrah. The MO and DuMol were much better than the Kimsey. I was really disappointed in the Kimsey. It just wasn’t there. Since DuMol is tagged here, the nose had dark fruits and a bit of funk. Flavors were nice, and the finish lingered a bit, but not as long as I would have liked. Score is for the DuMol. — 8 days ago

Rochioli Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

Nose of fresh lemon and white flowers led a beautiful and balanced chard in an almost perfect place, steely with a frame of pure limestone, layers of lemon peel and grapefruit, light oak. Fantastic. Could go a while but why wait? — 17 days ago

Art Series Margaret River Chardonnay 2018

Richly textured with predominately ripe fruits and oak notes at this young age, but in a way that somehow conveys a sense of understated elegance. Enough acidity to carry the medium to full body.
My first of this iconic Chard from down under. And it did not disappoint.

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2010

Superbe Pinot de CA au style Bourguignon, belle surprise en suivant tous ces beaux Bourgognes, du fruit à revendre, ne faisait pas son age.

Very nice Pinot from CA, has a Burgundy feel and texture to it, lots of fruit, well balanced, not even showing his age, very classy. 91-92

Novy Family Winery

Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2016

Deep Ruby, complex, yet delicate with aromas of dark fruits, spice and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of plum and cherry with smoky oak, pepper and cacao wrapped in generous acidity. Fine sweet tannins, long finish, great structure ending with fruit, cedar, spice and slight earthy tones. Nice! — 9 days ago
