Sonoma Red Blend 2017

Jammy nose leads to a big rush of red and black bramble fruit in your mouth. Just enough acidity to avoid fruit-bomb territory and some chocolate, molasses bitters on the finish with soft tannins. Nice casual weekend #sonomacounty red blend. — 5 months ago

Landmark Vineyards

Overlook Pinot Noir 2016

Quaffable #californiapinot blend - 72% #montereycounty, 15% #santabarbaracounty and 13% #sonomacounty. Given some time to breathe wafts up strawberry and faint spices plus a trace of oaky vanilla - I’m digging the ying/yang balance of fruit versus acid but still a bit more oak than my Old World palate prefers. Not a bad value in this price range. — 7 months ago

Ridge Vineyards

Lytton Springs Petite Sirah Blend 2015

Vintage 2015 / 74% zinfandel 16% petit shiraz 8% carignan 2% matador = mourvedre. Dark colour with cardinalred rim. A beneficent and seductive smell. Lots of cedar, marzipan, chocolate, spicyness too. Velvety in the mouth but with much power beneath. #ridge #zinfandel #sonomacounty Paired with beef tenderloin salsify and mushrooms. — 2 years ago

Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Straw with gold leaf glints. Compelling nose of acorn squash, zucchini blossom, cooling lemon zest, green apple, lime, drawn, clarified butter, corn flakes, tiny sprinkles of dried pineapple, and banana leaf aromas. Soft lemon pith and wet peel, green orchid stem, tangy, deconstructed lime from zest to oil and pith, lemon grass, and fresh cut lemon somehow echoing green apple tart bursts; lean and sexy with myriad edible flowers, lavender, squash blossom, nasturtiums, dandelion, and others, small and subtle. Overall a great Chardonnay with elegance and calculated beauty reminiscent of a Japanese garden, or a small, manicured French palatial jardin. .

KVR Knights Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Purple hue with extraction on the glass. Clean nose with fresh blackberry, plum sauce, cassis, graphite, black and red peppercorns, jalapeño, espresso, vanilla, and cedar box notes. A dry and full-bodied wine, that’s fruit and oak forward that can stand on its own or as a culinary complement. 15% ABV.

La Rousse Vineyard Syrah 2013

Great #syrah #wine from #SonomaCounty. Dark olive opaque color, deep blue. Not veru fragrant, even with time open. Palate is much more satisfying with light body, good acid, quick sharp tannin. All around character is there, but quick in each regard. Hoping for more lasting attributes. Opened 12/9/17 — 3 years ago
