A solid 9. Lovely #cabernertsauvignon notes and then smooth #merlot flavors on the palate. #sonoma — 5 months ago

This was the artist label version. It was more expensive and I found that it wasn’t as good as the regular #Sonoma #loeb bottle. #pinotnoir #californiapinot — 8 months ago

Beekeeper Cellars

Montecillo Vineyard Zinfandel 2015

Not much has changed from the 2014 to this 2015. Still an amazing glass of wine. I noted just a bit more smoke than I remember in the 2014. Still nice cedar and cherry tones that linger nicely as you enjoy. #California #Sonoma #sonomavalley #BeekeeperCellars #zinfandel #MonticelloVineyard — a year ago

Sojourn

Campbell Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Cantaloupe and lemon combine with Bosc pear and warm apples aromatically. Medium mouthfeel turns complex and heavier, exhibiting grilled lemon, tangerine pith, lemon toast, the taste of vanilla’s aroma, warm yellow apple and magnolia. #chardonnay #Soujourn #sonomachardonnay #sonoma #chard — 8 months ago

Pax

Griffin's Lair Sonoma Coast Syrah 2012

Mason Balistreri
9.9

No one in Colorado drinks more Pax than I do. From the "glou-glou" Wind Gap label to the 100 point Hillside Syrah, I love these wines. My favorite vineyard is Griffin's Lair and I think I've had every single vintage. The older bottles can be quite big, intense; while some of the newest have converged toward the leaner Wind Gap style, but either way the terroir has always shined through any stylistic trappings to reveal some of the best Syrah in California.

This 2012 is a perfect example of just how good it can get. More "Cornas" than "Cote Rotie", it's not as elegant as the most famous French Syrahs, but it doesn't have to be! Instead, the power is simply stunning. There's absolutely no fat. No extra ripeness. No over blown oak. No decadent opulence or gimmicky fruit. This is pure, unadulterated wine that gives everything great about Syrah in a sublime fashion. Unique to this vintage is amazing tannin structure, making me think this will be the longest lived vintage I've tasted.

I know that Pax recently got a 100 point score from Galloni on his Hillside Syrah - and Iove that wine too - but how did this only get 94 points? I understand the ideological importance of awarding a perfect score to a low alcohol, lighter extracted wine, but I'm afraid it's going to discourage this classic style. I love powerful syrah and I hope it never goes away. To me, this is basically perfect.
