Peter Martin Ray Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

I had this tucked away in the cellar and finally pulled it out. What a pleasant surprise. Clean, bright red fruits with plenty of acidity balanced by a few earthy, tertiary notes. Wonderfully enjoyable. I’m glad I have one more bottle! — 25 days ago

Nice Cabernet Sauvignon. Ready to drink despite its youth. Straightforward Cabernet that has a classic flavor that is perfect even if uninteresting. — 3 days ago

Reserve Merlot 2017

Fruit is bonkers on first night, green notes appeared on second night, fine tannin, slightly bitter tannin and decent acidity should age nicely. Would like to see in 7-10 years. — 22 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Chardonnay 2012

Everything is turned up to 11 here, but it genuinely works. Burnt popcorn and matchstick blew off after a while in the decanter to allow deep, just-overripe orchard fruit and lemon oil to combine with brown sugar, sweet cream, graham cracker, and coconut to come screaming out of the glass. Substantially heavy body, but with enough acidity to not come across as flabby. Dried citrus on the finish that combines with the oak to create a finish that taste like a bourbon glazed lemon pound cake. Not a wine I would want to drink more than once in a while, but beautiful for its sheer audacity. Lots of life left in this too. — 20 days ago

Terra Narro Pinot Noir 2018

First Terra Narro I’ve had that wasn’t all estate - this is a blend of Chalone and Santa Cruz Mountains. A bit unsettled the first night, tasted like it needs more time. Really drinking well the second night, elegant floral nose and cherries on the palate. Well balanced acidity and tannins. — 8 days ago
