Charles Smith

Kungfu Girl Washington State Riesling 2016

A light straw colour with white peach and mandarin orange notes that open nicely to hints of slate and petrol. Fairly dry with zippy acidity, paired excellently with Singapore Noodles. — 2 days ago

Josh Cellars

Josh Legacy Red Wine 2015

Color of clear bloody red with light purple and blue on the rim. Nose of berries that reminds me of Pinot noir, leather, cherry jam, men’s cologne, and hint of spice. Taste follows similar notes with the perfume note evolving to flowering note. Very mellow in tannins, some Unami type of sweetness, and some good sweet berries note. Aftertaste of some spices and medium short. She is light weight, yet quite pleasant. — 12 days ago

Markham Vineyards

Napa Valley Merlot 2015

Here is my Thursday's Merlot fix.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, cedar, vanilla, tobacco, cloves, spices, chocolates, smoke, mocha, earth, peppercorn and leather.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, cedar, leather, licorice, vegetables, pencil lead, vanilla, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke and earth.

Medium plus in finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Napa Merlot is always enjoyable. Well balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Drinking very nicely now and will continue in the next 5 to 7 years.

Needs an hour to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle too.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Orin Swift

No Vacancy Pinot Noir 2015

So....Orin Swift Pinot..... Those who pay a ton for this aren't even told where this comes from. "California" pinot at $50+. Definitely not bad. Red cherry liqueur. Youthful. A bit unidimensional. I'd like to see what another year or 2 does to this bottle but not expecting much beyond 9.0. — 6 days ago

Yeah, you guys forced me to try this one, despite the fact that I’m not a Pinot guy, and that I think all Orin swift and/or Dave Phinney wines should be poured down the drain (or at the very least be relabeled ‘wine beverage ‘ because they are mainly made in a laboratory). I guess if I was forced (and I was) to try one in the future again, this is probably the least offensive of the bunch. I still will not be giving it any sort of positive accolade, despite the fact that it is less sugary than its stablemates...imho

Gallo Family Vineyards

Signature Series Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Gina Gallo signature series cabernet sauvignon 2013. OUTSTANDING!!!!!! 95% cab, 3% petit verdot, 2% petite Sirah. Very dark opaque.... um um already. The bouquet is Lavender and fresh picked blueberries. The initial palate is amazingly sweet but not sticky!!!! I let it decant for 30 min after the first 2 oz. POW! I was not expecting anything from Gallo to be this good. There is ripe blackberry of coarse, boysenberry, rhubarb, and sweet raspberry int the beginning. The wine quickly brings to the palate hints of chocolate and fig. No spice. No oak. Maybe some vanilla. The the finish brings in the dry lip licking goodness and there comes the spice in the finale. This rounds it off to perfection. I know she worked hard to get this one. Congratulations Miss Gallo! I’m finally blown away by Gallo wines. I’ll be getting a whole lot more this while it lasts!!!!!! Oh did I mention its only 40 dollars a bottle!!!!!!!!!!!!!! — 19 hours ago

Scholium Project

Glos McDowell Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2007

Named Anastasis for its “resurrection” in the cellar after fermentation issues. From low-yielding Sauv Blanc vines near Rutherford that were pulled after the 2013 vintage. Sherry notes, with some apple, nut and yellow jujube character. If you go in thinking Jura, you will enjoy this more than if you go in thinking California. Interesting wine. Only about 14 cases, hand bottled by @Graeme MacDonald and @Johanna Jensen according to Abe’s notes. Interesting that I will have consumed about 4% of total production by the time I finish my bottles. — 10 days ago

Familiar California Mourvedre 2013

Over the past week or two I have been thinking of pulling a special bottle for wine #2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣. Instead, I ended up with something Familiar. Random pull, but representative of the wines I drink and enjoy most often. Nice value. Cheers!

Mark Herold Wines

Collide California Red Blend 2011

Mark Herold has balls. His 2011 Collide combines 49% Carignan with 25% Petite Sirah, 15% Tempranillo, and 10% Graciano. It’s kinda like Sushi & Brisket Nachos... I dare you to try pulling it off. — 8 days ago
