Tall Tails Cabernet Franc

This was so good at the winery, but different a couple months later with the bottle we brought home. Still good, though, but not as. — 8 days ago

Sine Qua Non

Raven Series No. 1 Grenache 2006

Gor
9.4

Intense ruby color. Stewed fruit, violets, hints of leather, licorice, sweet tobacco, creme brulee on the nose. Real depth and complexity on the palate - chewing gum, licorice, plums, black cherries. Lifted acidity still provides a youthful backbone along with prominent tannin. Killer wine though lacks a tad bit of freshness. — 4 days ago

Stolpman Vineyards

So Fresh GGT Estate Vineyard Ballard Canyon Grenache Blend

Like everything Stolpman makes this is on point. Definitely in that fresh Beaujolais style. Served with a nice chill on it. Bubble gum and red berry on the nose, cranberry on the palate with great acidity and faint tannins. Killer summer red wine. — 15 days ago

Hoya Finca Hoya de Santa Ana Monastrell Blend 2020

On first opening, bouquet of black cherry and blackberries , Big Red cinnamon gum, bell pepper, and smoky bowling alley; palate of black cherry and plum, char, and black tea with a medium-short finish. On the second day the candy and bell pepper smells taper, bowling alley becomes more of a whiff of pipe smoke, blackberry bramble emerges with spent firecrackers; on the palate the black pepper spice has some herbs de provence, black tea tannins are rounder and the cherry flavor more tart, a fuller body on the finish with notes of char, meat fats, and pepperoni spices. Was gonna go with 89 but it’s impressive once you decant for a day. — 5 hours ago

Chateau Du Moulin À Vent

Les Terasses Du Château 2018

Medium ruby, some nice candied red fruit notes and fennel, black licorice.
This Beaujolais doesn't carry the bubble gum or cotton candy flavors of lesser examples, instead there is a light mix of lavender and pepper.
Medium tannins, M+ acid and alky.
Not a ton of layers but really well balanced and an easy drinking or pairing wine.

Fourchaume Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Lyle Fass
9.4

Nose is ripe and a bit funky but will blow off. Stunning purity and freshness and so many seashells. Also a mineral liquid gum drop thing happening. Palate is ripe, treacly and racy with awesome purity and freshness. Silky and juicy. Very long. Terrific concentration, focus and energy. Very very pure. Silky and deep. Just a tremendous bottle. — 10 days ago

Eastside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2017

Absolutely delicious and hitting at perfection. A nose of raspberry, plum and ripe rich fruits, hints of smoking rich wood, with a menthol like undertones, this wine is special. Strawberry, plum, mint, bubble gum, the works with a fresh, chalky and somehow powdery finish that lingers long after the first sip and silky smoooth tannins that leave the mouth feeling somehow both cool and fresh. — 7 days ago

Brut Champagne Blend 2000

Fresh and crystalline with a salty, oyster shell nose. A little sweetness in the front, a fiber mousse with tall detail and transparency. Light on its feet alongside the Dom 02. Not as intense but very pretty. — a month ago
