Te Mata Estate

Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir 2020

This is the 2020 vintage (remembering they harvest early in NZ) seems like some CM (carbonic maceration ) big black cherry fruit with some subtle spice and earth. — 18 hours ago

Wente Vineyards

Livermore Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Dark deep purple. Oaky with blackberry flavor. My favorite winery and wine. Just the right complexity and fruitiness in full bodied California cab. — 15 days ago

Family Farm Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Paired so nicely with a grilled pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, and salad. Everything came together so nicely for an early alfresco family dinner. — 4 days ago

Kells Vineyard Merlot 2019

9.0-9.1
Raspeberry, Sequoia, Santa Cruz Mtn soil.

Carbonic maceration, destmmed after 10 days, fermented on-skins for some time more, pressed to mouthfeel, native ferment, unfined, unfiltered, 13% abv. Slightly cloudy without notable sediment.

I really appreciate this wine, while my friend is bonkers for this wine. Easily approachable, easy drinking & pair-able, does not seek to destroy (thank you!)

Very pleasant, fruity, great on its own or with food. Great without decant (notes potent for me though), I enjoyed more with 1 hour decant. Enjoy now.

The 24 Contra Costa County Zinfandel 2019

This hides its 15.5 very well. Nose has blackberry fruit and cracked black peppercorn in equal measure. In the mouth it’s expansive, with excellent concentration and a rich texture that hides the soft tannin very well. Long, pure finish. Nicely done. — 18 days ago
