5/23/2015 - WST Likes this wine: NR

Wow! Open but young, too young. Lots of sea breeze and minerality. Equal parts tropical and citrus nose, but way more citrus on the palate, including acidic cut. I need to hide my remaining bottles for a bit.

Beautiful stinky nose. A touch of brett but just the right amount. Olive and clean game. Soft raspberry fruit but it plays a supporting role to savory tones that saturate the wine from front to rear of the palate. Beautiful CA Syrah. Dense Minerality with crunchy tannins in the mid rear palate. Elegant and subtle with good complexity, but time will do wonders. Killer bottle.

Awesome. Dry, crisp, enough weight, tons of minerality but no sulphur notes. I'd blind it as a dry CA white blend of some kind

Another nice QPR, with a bit less depth than I would prefer and a bit too much steminess, but this is splitting hairs. Black and white pepper, black olives and soy sauce notes.

One of our aperitifs for the PEF foundation dinner...most of the guests were skeptical and considered themselves non-Rose drinkers.

Consistent with prior notes, great rose. Crowd loved it

Pale coppery serum color, less vibrant in color than the last two vintages; obvious watermelon tinged lees suspended at the bottom of the bottle; soft yeasty melon nose; soft, earthy, melon palate with silky, softly full mouthfeel, saline notes, a little sweetness with persistent earthy pleasure. Acidity moderate with subtle minerality; Less verve, more sex in this vintage. Very good.

Yes, 97 points. This, for me, is the optimal style for Chardonnay. Clean, crisp, high acidity but bursting with fruit and minerals and salinity. Like squeezing lemons through a crushed stone filter. Full bodied mouthfeel, viscous, just an an absolute joy to drink. Another magnum in the cellar to age, wish I had bought more as usual. Bravo to A-R for making Chardonnay in this style!!!

Our first bottle was opened a few weeks after it arrived and did not show well. This, however, was beautiful. Floral and tangy red fruit notes hit the nose first, followed by smoke and briar elements (from stem inclusion?) that add intriguing complexity. A pleasure to smell. Treads lightly on the palate, with bitter cherry core that glides along a perceptible but unobtrusive acid spine, punctuated with spice/pepper notes. Hard to put down.

Aromas of wet leaves, soft floral notes, and some red berries. Featherweight wine that has a great, earthy character to it. Lovely.

At our David Arthur tasting, started the crowd with Rose and Champagne. This is a great crowd pleasing wine, light and fresh for outdoor entertaining.

Consistent with prior notes. I would say this vintage does not stand out as much as prior years. A little less fruit, less distinctive

7% Solution, SF 2015 (SF): N: Overall impression is Lambic on the nose - Like a Sour Rodenbach. Brett? Bacterial?
1/4 of the wine is fermented on skins in a clay amphora.
Very strange.
Palate: Balanced, dry, strong acidity. Tart and crisp with a bit of alcohol warmth. Tart, sour (malic).
Don’t know what to think of this - it’s very odd.
$40
Around 7.5

7% Solution, SF 2015 (SF): Red wine. Light ruby, cloudy in the glass.
Hint of carbonic character, bright cherry, earthiness in the black pepper direction but not rotundone. Expressive cherry. A complex nose. Youthful, like a cru beaujolais
P: Some phenolic bitterness, satisfyingly grippy drying tannins. Light and aromatic. Like a cru beaujolais. It’s nice! Good acidity. I’m loving this!
Whole Cluster fermentation - so there’s some carbonic maceration but they don’t force it.
$37
Between 8.5 and 9.

7% Solution, SF 2015 (SF): Touriga Nacional
Very light salmon in the glass - nearly clear.
Nose: indistinct dark fruit, warm fruit. With a hint of sweetness - and yeasty beer-like tones. Smells unusual.
Mouth: Indistinct dark fruits on the palate. Decent acid, slightly elevated alcohol.
Overall impression is light and clean. Pleasant. Just a tiny bit of phenolic bitterness - not much.

Deep burgundy; the most appealing aspect of this wine is its lip smacking acidity which was truly mouthwatering; the nose showed prominent brandied cherry and herbs: the palate offers herbal elements, cherry and strawberry flavors which evolve through a spicy phase into the acidic, lightly tannic finish. Thin from a body perspective with average length. Less complex on day 2.

Wonderfully minerally and herbaceous rosé. Ample sea spray and flint, with some sage to accent melon and soft berry aromas. Savory palate, with a whisper of lime in the mildly acidic finish. Slight hint of creaminess as it warms. Really fantastic.

Tons of leaves and damp earth upon opening, as it opens various red fruited aromas come and go, red cherry, tart wild strawberry, cranberry, and some spice, with the earthiness remaining a constant. Palate follows suit, with a nice interplay between the earth, cranberry, strawberry and some pepper followed by a medium finish of red fruits and soil tones. Light body with soft tannins and ample acidity to keep it quite mouth watering.

PopnPour, tasted over 3 hrs and Day 2
-semi-opaque med dark red
-moderately expressive slightly confected ripe black cherry, touch of black pepper
-med/med+ acidity with med weight but sappy earthy mid-palate ripe black cherry picking up some leafy/earthy elements, med/med+ chalky tannins give substantial grip, moderately long finish has some noticeable but not intrusive oak; still going strong on Day 2 with little change
-stylistically more Arnot-Roberts than an Italian sangiovese: aromatic on a relatively lighter frame with wispy red fruits earth and tannic structure; lovely and seems to be in early maturity

Pale pink/salman color, lighter in color than previous vintages. Floral and light red fruits on the nose. Palate is red fruits, strawberry spritz, bright red fruits/cherry, melon, citrus. Medium weight, easy drinking wine.
