Annette's Reserve Redwood Valley Zinfandel 2002

2002; Father's Day 2022
👃 Dried blackberries, dried blueberries, over-ripe black cherry, crushed dark chocolate | 👅 Black cherry & strawberry syrup reduction, over-ripe nectarine skin, dark chocolate sauce, light tar notes, acidity/tannins persists with a long, round finish. Satisfying.

Cork pulled for slow oxidation, 11H rest at time of notes.

The end of the line for our Annette's stock, starting life in our cellar as a 4-pack back in Nov. 2005 ($22.50), this has been an enjoyable run.
Paired to homemade chocolate lava cake. 🤤

A quick googling points to a sub AVA of Mendocino…. Too many AVA’s to keep up.

Copain

DuPratt Anderson Valley Chardonnay 2016

Very tasty. Gold, medium weight. Restraint. Bright Flinty Mineral. Zero butter. A tiny bit of toast on the finish. A little bound up upon opening. Gets really nice about an hour in. Vineyard is in Anderson Valley. Wells Guthrie is a very talented winemaker. Pretty sure this was his last vintage at Copain. — 3 days ago

Littorai

Roman Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010

Haunting aromatics, stemmy with subtle campfire smoke. You could taste and see the age, dry and savoury, black tea. Light cherry layers. Probably on the downslope from here as the acid just holding it all together. — 16 days ago

High Valley Zinfandel 2018

Fruit forward aromas; very spicy on the tongue, balancing the fruit forward blackberry and plum notes. Happy Father's Day. Sharing the #fuckcancerwine wine. — 8 days ago

Pennyroyal Farm

Anderson Valley PinoTrio 2019

Perfume sweet without the cloying. A refined garden party in your mouth. Somewhere between Sauvignon blanc swish-swish and a Viognier in mouthfeel. Just right for something way outside my preferred palate. — 13 days ago

Bearwallow Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Fun to experience TRB’s winemaking with Anderson Valley fruit. Nose is lighter and more lifted than his Sonoma bottlings, yet still has the density and depth of fruit expected of his style. There’s a background radiation of higher acid from times past. At this age it’s all in balance with the savory and bright elements perfectly balancing Thomas’s extraction level. This might be peak. Drink up! — 15 days ago
