The Storm Cellar

Storm Wines

Presqu'ile Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

This was clearly California but in a restrained style. Cherries and baking spice. Really great after some air. Please try storm before Sandhi or other rich people’s wines in SB county. — 10 days ago

Wind Storm

Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel

Had this with filets, baked potatoes, sautéed green beans, blue cheese cream sauce and molten chocolate lava cake. Jammy! Goes down smooth. — a month ago

Chass! Chasselas 2018

The calm before the storm (move out day!)

Succulent aroma. Big on the apricots in a good way. Wildflower honey. Citrus and the acidity of a good white balsamic. A cornucopia of tropical fruits.

Mangoes. Dry. Reminds me of an unripe, green mango. The type that’s really great for sangria. This, too. This would be a great base for an orange sangria. Would take really well to tropical fruits and strawberries.

I don’t really understand the hate/ indifference in the other reviews. Sure, it’s not a grand slam, but it’s at least a triple, maybe an in-the-park homer.

I like the dry quality and how it plays with the fruitiness. It’s a welcome flirtation.

CAUTION: Extremely drinkable.

Classico Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2015

A nice wine. In the nose it reminds of dry land and wet wood to announce the first waters. On the palate it evokes flavors of cacáu. A storm filled with soft tannin pigments, which dissolve in contact with the papillae. Finally, a wine that elevates us and invites us to life. — a month ago

Domaine de Beudon

L'Orage Valais Red Blend 2015

A blend of 4 varieties that survived the 2015 hail storm. Medium cherry in color with peripheral bricking. Nose of earth, dark fruit. Spicy palate with dark fruit and acid. Long finish with tannic bite. Interesting as a one off related to unstable weather. — 21 days ago

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2013

Tasting great now. Nose is baking spice with some herbs and a bit of fruit. Palate is more of the same with dried cherries and some currant. Really good. I’m finding that I like Santa Barbara Pinot>santa Cruz>Russian River. — 2 months ago
