Off dry Riesling with a slight oaky taste. Pleasant local wine. — 15 days ago
Smells of fruit grown in gravel.
Loud blueberries, cran Pom grape good, clean, smooth, mouthfeel and wonderfully light heft. A whole lot bouncing around in this wine. The acid oak balance is strikingly harmonious.
Lingering blue fruit skin. A good one to watch the latest GOT with.

A really nice aged Cabernet Sauvignon from the Conn Creek area which is an outflow from Howell Mtn. Nice cool waters in a slightly warmer microclimate make for beautiful Bordeaux varietals! Aged black cherry and a hint of truffle and worn saddle leather on the nose. Entry still has a tiny bit of acidity, but beautiful black cherry and mint and truffle which were more of the primary notes. Almost makes me think this had a hint of eucalyptus when it was closer to it's youth? I was getting more of a smoked note in the middle. The finish was still a little bit acidic, but very complex. Walnut, black cherry, Blackberry, hint of black licorice on the finish. This wine has impeccable structure, and I look forward to it continuing to drink well over the next 3 to 5 years. — 21 days ago

My first wine club selection from an incredible winery. Light enough to sip, but enough depth to make it a memorable favorite. If only I could find more... — 7 months ago
Needs some air to blossom. But then it’s classic Rocks: smoky basaltic minerality (a/k/a “fire pit”), grilled asparagus, iodine, and cassis ooze. So concentrated and mouthfilling. Plushly-textured, filling every nook and cranny. Low acids, but the savoriness and minerality of the wines from this AVA actually negate that as an issue (it would be a different story if the wines from the Rocks more fruity rather than savory). Rhône varieties grown in this district are some of the most interesting wines in the world IMHO. — 8 months ago
