Guidalberto Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2017

A delicious wine. Supple tannins, deep garnet color, distinctive notes of lavender, blackberry pepper, leather and raspberry. Drinking well as a young wine. Cheers! — a day ago

Bourbon Barrel Aged Limited Edition Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Gift from C.P. (Thanks, girl. Good taste.). After a hefty helping of “I just sold my favorite house” marinated for 24 hours in “seller might back out,” then roasted in “because the HOA can’t get it together,” this glass brings out the delicious and sweet flavors of the realtor’s negotiator skills and husband’s unwavering commitment to ANY project. Thank you C. Wish you were here to share. — 8 days ago

Small Lot Livermore Valley Merlot 2016

This Merlot-heavy blend (5% Cabernet Sauvignon) has a generous nose of smoke and dark fruit. The palate is rich with black cherry, mocha, vanilla and floral notes. Tannins are firm enough, but the sipping is still easy. It’s a really good, single-vineyard Merlot that deserves a hot ribeye.

San Mateo County Pinot Noir 2010

Wasn’t sure what to expect from this 9 year old. Cork has that aged, permeated stain. Pours crimson. Nose is a tight integration of red fruits, white flowers, and white pepper. Palette shows racy yet controlled acid and a follow through of the nose. Very nice showing and vibrant. — 7 days ago

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2014

Was very intrigued with this wine...not sure if it should have had more time to open but felt a lot of alcohol burn evaporation on the palette. None the less, well balanced and was better served with food. — 13 days ago

Small Lot Livermore Valley Dry Orange Muscat 2018

This wine has beautiful floral notes, and considering the grape, one might think a dessert wine is in the glass, or maybe an Albariño or Gewurztraminer. That’s not happening, though. This Orange Muscat is completely dry. The palate shows lime notes in an orange-laced and wonderfully acidic setting. Bring on the shellfish.

Rhys Vineyards

Family Farm Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

2012 Family Farm. Still in the late stages of primary. Beautiful light body, but dark color. Rich fruit compote flavors, heavy on the black cherry and some cigar box notes. Finishes with a hint of orange peel. Still lots of life left here. — 6 days ago

Le Difese Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Sangiovese 2016

빠넬로에서의 저녁, 마르게리따 부팔라 피자와 스테이크와 함께 곁들일 하프 보틀 와인으로 토스카나 와인을 골랐다. 이탈리아 와인, 넘나어려운것... 투명도가 높고 밝은 보랏빛에 이탈리아 와인답게 산도가 상당했는데, 첫 느낌은 새콤달콤의 업그레이드 버전 “새콤새콤달콤”! 살짝 느껴지는 달콤함이 감칠맛을 돋운다. 하프 보틀이라 아쉽당. 힛 — 10 days ago

Livermore Valley Dry Rosé Blend 2018

Fresh strawberries and cherries burst forth from the nose, with more of the same on the palate. The acidity is fresh and vibrant. This pale salmon rosé comes at the end of “rosé season,” but hang onto a bottle or two for Thanksgiving. It’s substantial enough for fall veggies, or turkey.

Sounds like it’s not 100% Merlot

@David Shaw - I believe it only has be 75% in order to just be called Merlot.
