Leorie Vineyard Cabernet Franc Merlot 2015

High ratings for the region. Drinking beautifully now, could lay down another 5-10 years to calm down the sharp edges a bit further. Velveteen, good balance of fruit and acid. Soft tannins. 65% Merlot, 35% Cab Franc. — a month ago

Maresh Vineyard Star-of-Bethlehem Flower Block Pinot Noir 2017

2 hr decant. Gorgeous looking wine. Bright clean fruit. Rocks. Light spice. Elegant. 12.5%. Good structure for years to come, really a crime to be drinking this now but it’s excellent. It’s spendy at $85 at the winery, but I think with cellaring it’s prob worth it. — 14 days ago

Domaine Sebastien Dampt

Les Beugnons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Lyle Fass

Always the class of the 1er cru at Dampt and man is this a smoker. Gorgeous nose of pear, apple, intense salty iodine, gorgeous ocean air, confectionary minerality. Palate is superb with wonderful texture and richness and lovely crunch. So clean and pure with racy acidity and freshness and awesome explosiveness. Concentrated and balanced with a long salty finish with terrific crunch and texture. So pure and ripe but with just insane freshens. So long and persistent. A star. — 11 days ago

The Ojai Vineyard

Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Syrah

2015 vintage. Dark and exotically aromatic. Fig, mullberry, blueberry compote, star anise, purple basil, fresh violets, allspice, incense, orange peel lifted note. Seems like there might be a little stem inclusion. Yum! — 3 days ago

Comte Philippe de Nazelle

Cabidos Petit Manseng Sec 2010

Star bright yellow gold with chartreuse highlights. Inviting nose of ripe quince and celery. Well-structures, medium-bodies palate yields ripe pomes (quince, pear, yellow apple) and concrete mineral around firm acidity. Great with a wide range of foods, but especially rich seafood, cream sauces, and root vegetables. Drink now through 2025. — 6 days ago
