Deeply Rooted

Mendocino County Merlot 2018

#mendocino Co. #merlot which gets appreciably more expressive a day after opening in the wine fridge: Bramble fruit, vanilla custard; palate shows slight peppery spice aroma and a fair bit of acidity with distant tannins on the finish. Oak application is reasonable. I’m getting less mistrustful of the sub $20 value Merlots from regions outside Napa - there’s definitely a movement towards quality across the board though this one has farther to go. #wsjwineclub — a year ago

Wild Thing Cox Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel 2014

Funky cinnamon-plums, baked apples, carrot cake and blackberries. Wild strawberries, sloe berries, sweet, black pepper, blueberry muffin and pencil tip scents. Lean and meaty black currant, sour cherry and blackberry with grape leaves, black plum reduction and fig. Satisfying and multi-textured! #zinfandel #CarolShelton #Mendocino #Healdsburg #oldvine — 3 years ago

Paul Dolan Vineyards

Mendocino County Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

I like this #mendocino co. #cabernetsauvignon - waves of bramble berry on the nose but it’s not too jammy - tannins are pretty bold and a bit uncouth. There’s at least a touch of acidity to liven things up. — 3 years ago

Small Lot Mendocino County Pinot Noir 2018

Lighter #mendocino Co #pinotnoir - enticing cherry, apricot and subtly spicy nose. Delicate frame, lovely acid structure and silken tannins on the finish. It just might be my new Costco QPR favorite for $8. — a year ago

Sativa Mendocino Carignan 2016

Blood-ruby, undiluted tenor from rim to rim. Blackberry-cran with a smoky coat, violets, raspberry reduction, wild nettle, suede, rose petal, dried cherry, applewood, and gingerly ginger, spare cedar, finest snuff, cherry pit and damp clove spiced nose. All with a slight memory of campfire. Black plum, cedar, violet, dried, sour cherry, dark leather, peppercorn, dried cranberry and red currant, cinnamon apple, fine, grippy tannins that integrate into the whole with a pleasing sense of herbs and bitters, sage and lavender. Did not expect this complexity from carignan, and floral notes that evoke like Nebbiolo. Class. .
