Scott Kelley

Oregon Tempranillo 2016

Sour bing cherry, inky raspberry sauce, dried leaves, dill, pencil lead, and dirty tobacco. Strong mid-palate that doesn’t get overpowered by oak or heat. Wise choice to age this in a blend of large French casks and new American oak. Develops restrain and youthfulness. Drinking a baby here.

Constanza Schwaderer

Coni Pinot Noir 2017

Explodes on the palate. Cranberry and creamy sour cherry progresses into underbrush, mushroom, iris and cigar box. The nose gets fleshy and herbal. Rosemary shows strength on the finish. Fine-grained tannins are alluring and persistent. Juicy on the mid-palate... changing in the glass. Nice finesse, balanced... took me by surprise.

Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2017

Solid example of Willamette Pinot Gris: accelerated minerality with pronounced and concentrated fruit. An abundance of pear, white peach, lemon, mace, saline, and soaked concrete on the nose. Styled to cleanse and refresh your palate.

Lay of the Land

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Passion fruit, yellow grapefruit, white peach, lime, arugula, gooseberry, grass, chalk, and saline. Bracing acidity that shows brightness on the palate. There’s a big fruit ripeness that is balanced and lifted. Mouth watering and filling all the way to the finish.

Vin de Pays d'Oc Dry Viognier 2017

Consistent tasting notes compared to the 2015. Tangerine, apples, apricot, beeswax, honeysuckle, and rose water. Acidity stays relevant within its medium plus body. Viognier can be so versatile.

Mauricio Lorca

Angel's Selection Mendoza Malbec Blend 2017

Warm raspberries, ripe black cherries, blueberries, black olives, spearmint, sweet tobacco leaf, graphite, and clove. Crazy ripe fruit on the bouquet, juicy mid-palate, finish that’s covered in dark chocolate and yerba maté, and all wrapped up in supple tannins. New world nose with an old world finish.

Jacqueline Bahue

Lodi Cabernet Franc 2017

Muscular and smoky, established ripe strawberries and raspberries sneak up on a core of campfire and smoked paprika. Aggressive without being overbearing or in any way extracted. Showing balance after getting more air. Nice stylistic approach for Cab Franc.

Matt Parish

Tino Napa Valley Red Blend 2016

Truly representative of what Napa can pump out. Sweet and fresh blackberry, plum, and cassis fruit overlaid with shaved dark chocolate and wintergreen. However, the essence of the wine stays covered in new leather and spice cake. There is also a noticeable fleshiness that shows up after a considerable amount of air. Firm structure that reveals charming character. Delicious. Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot, and Petit Sirah. @Christy Fitzgerald, I know you’ve had this before, but something you should revisit.

Central Coast Marsanne 2017

Highly aromatic and full bodied. Sitting at 14.5% alcohol. Actually hides it quite well. The heart of this wine reveals sweet pear, ripe peach, grilled pineapple, and honeyed ginger, finishing into mandarin oranges and spicy beeswax. Some residual sugar, but compliments the overall spirit of this wine. Props to the central coast!

Daryl Rex Groom

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Big wine. Blackberry cobler, black cherry compote, sweet plums, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate, and sun drenched leather... This is definitely a heavy hitter done right that screams new world.
