When you open a white Burgundy, a Chateauneuf du Pape and a Cornas but the wine of the night is a Sonoma Petit Sirah...#wotn #moonmountaindistrict

Modern style California cab. Overextracted and uninteresting

2016 vintage opened on 11.16.2019. Still young and needs time in the bottle, yet impressive as all of Richard Arrowood’s wines are! Had with spicy meat chili which brought out the soft tannins that were trapped by all the young berry fruit.

Another testament to the greatness of the historic Monte Rosso vineyard. From Dick Arrowood's project, delicious petit sirah, dark and complex, supple and elegant, power in a velvet package. Very nice wine!

Medium intensity for a zin. Pepper medium berry and licorice. Very well balanced between acidity and sweetness. Like it!

Best balanced true to Zin profile- Goldilocks' choice of the Zin tasting tonight. Developed fruit without overt perfume, good acidity, restraint & overall roundness.
