Best California Grenache I know! In perfect stride right now. Love the flavors from the whole cluster fermentation. — 2 months ago

Zaca Mesa

Clydesdale Estate Vineyard 2016

In the beginning too tight, too tannic, too concentrated and just not fun to drink. After 48 hours in a half drunk bottle, we see a surprising glow up—this heavy Central Coast Syrah blossomed into a different wine! Now it’s rich but balanced, smooth but complex, a true pleasure. 2016 vintage. Had it with Eggplant Parmesan from Bay Cities Deli the first time, when it was kinda rough, and then with assertive Swiss mountain cheeses from Andrew’s Cheese Shop, when it was silky. — 2 months ago

Syrah 2017

An excellent wine for the price (about $16 I think at Gelson’s). It pours a deep rich burgundy color. Flavors of chocolate- milk, not cocoa - strawberries, raspberries and maybe a little caramel. The wine went perfectly with the New York steaks we had it with. This is an exceptional wine that can be a daily drinker or accompany a nice meal. Bring it as a gift to a friend’s house - they’ll thank you. — 2 months ago

The Royal Nonesuch Farm

Estate York Mountain Syrah Blend 2017

A three-bottle-night was not the plan...but there you go. Terrific wine from Anthony Yount. Started off with Cris Cherry at Villa Creek, and now is making great wines at Denner, this is is red offering, which complements his amazing whites under his Kineros Cellars label (the “Alice” being the best grenache blanc you’ll find for the price anywhere in the world). Terrific grenache-driven blend, this is not one for long ageing, but a terrific one to open now. Well done, from one of the best young guns from Paso! — 3 months ago
