Ehlers Estate

St. Helena Cabernet Franc 2013

The 2013 Ehlers Estate Cabernet Franc, Saint Helena ($60), is one of those wines that tastes so darn good, you know that the written word won’t do it justice. It’s crafted from 100% organic, 100% estate cabernet franc from our loamy soils. It’s powerful, yet retains a sense of balance and elegance from Old World, hands-on production techniques, from vineyard, to tank, to barrel, to bottle. Black fruits, vanilla, and spices envelope the palate. The finish goes on forever and frankly, I don’t want to stop sipping it. This wine is the result of outstanding terroir, vineyard management, and winemaking that I am blessed to witness on a daily basis. Who's in for some cabernet franc pleasure? Mark my words, it would be even better if we were drinking it together. #napavalley #sthelena #napavalleywines #ehlerslove — 3 years ago

Carneros Pinot Noir 2013

A nice Pinot noir. Very ripe cherry on the front of the palette with a slight tobacco and a mocha finish. One I could enjoy on its own or with a pot roast. #winelife #pinotenvy #napavalleywines — 4 years ago

Grgich Hills Estate

Paris Tasting Carneros Chardonnay 2012

The creme de la creme from Grgich. An exquisite Chardonnay! On the nose, honey, lemon zest, lime. On the palette, tropical fruits, creme brûlée, and a bright, crisp finish. Superb on its own or with, seafood (I like it with scallops), risotto, or cream pasta dishes. #chardonnay #napavalley #winelife #napavalleywines — 4 years ago

Sauvignon Blanc

An excellent sauvignon blanc and it was a gift from a great friend! On the nose, lemon, lime, pear, and stone/minerals. On the palate, very citrusy, bright Meyer lemon, peach, mango, and grapefruit. A very lovely wine and worth a try!! #sauvignonblanc #winelife #napavalley #napavalleywines — 4 years ago

I thoroughly enjoyed this merlot. Rich and ripe fruit on the nose and palette with an oaky, smokey, and chocolate finish. I would pair this with steak or pork. #youhademeatmerlot #winelife #napavalleywines — 4 years ago

Carneros-Napa Valley Chardonnay 2013

Enjoyed this chardonnay, but I still do not care much for Chardonnay. Light and crisp on the palette, Meyer lemon, lime, creme brûlée, and a slight mineral finish. I would enjoy this wine with chicken, seafood, or a cucumber salad. #chardonnay #winelife #napavalleywines — 4 years ago
