Tasted here in 2017. We primarily tasted their 2011 as they were sold out of all of their good to great wines. Their 11’s were astringent & green. Not a good experience.

This is stunning w/ Allen Brother’s Filets. Less fatty more dry beef cut (when you compare it to their Ribcap) meets juicy, elegant, fruit forward wine at its peak. The pepper & peeper marry well.

Fantastic, fruity, decant two hours or hold for a bit. Personally didn’t decant, and wine was still holding its own on day 3. — 15 hours ago

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2018

Been a long time since I had a Mauriston Zin and I missed it! Yea, there Rockpile is even better but this is excellent. Many may enjoy beer with smoked chicken wings but try this Zin. Flavors melded wonderfully with our two different BBQ ribs, tannins were medium, very smooth for such a young vintage, and the pepper flavors seemed to accent the spices in the food. — a day ago

Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2019

Deep ruby color, almost garnet. Decent legs. Cherry and leather and bright red fruit on the nose. Maybe also pepper? Very lightly tannic rainier cherry, cranberry, and silky red fruit. It's good, but not my favorite Valpolicella blend. — 13 days ago

Pearl Morissette Estate Winery

Cuvée Métis Pinot Noir Cabernet Franc 2016

My first Canadian wine and it is a doozy. Light purple with plenty of fizz to it. This is a wild, untamed wine and you get that message right from the start. The barnyard funk is immediate and deep. Earth and forest woodland is all over this with fresh blueberries and raspberries. The spice is warm and there’s a sense of pine nuts and mushrooms. Wild funky stuff.

Mostly Cabernet Franc with some Pinot Noir from Niagara, this is avant-garde stuff. You could try to write it off as natural, or Beaujolais like, but that doesn’t really cover it. It’s clear that this is the work of someone who knows what the hell they’re doing, absolutely nothing amateurish here. As wild as it is there is nice structure here, this is not at all a lazy wine. Complexity is abundant with menthol and untamed red fruit notes. Sit with this one for a while. Let it breathe, let it speak to you. You will be rewarded. Very unique.
