Restrained nose for a California zin. Cherries, mixed berry hard candy, wintergreen, and touches of briars and brambles. The mid-bodied palate follows suit, repeating the tasty, cherry fruit theme. Really easy going and enjoyable to drink.

A consistent producer from an off the radar CA central coast area. When you pick up your rental car at SFO or OAK change your plans and head south for some of the best QPR wines today. Translucent garnet in the glass, aromomatic nose that leads to a palate of dark fruits, balanced acidity and tannins, and a finish that lingers. Very nice.

Consistent with previous notes. Deliciously satisfying boutique pinot from an under appreciated area. Don't tell anyone, keep it for yourself. Incredible value for the quality.

Aging straw colored in the glass, nose is muted, palate is expressive, crisp and clean, with a nice balanced acidity that leads to apple, pear and a hint of wood that reminds of cru Chablis. Nice.

Out of their whole lineup we tried today, this one is the best. A blend of Cab, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. If the rep was correct, this spent 3 years on oak before being bottled. But the oak isn't all that strong. It's still super juicy/fruity like everything else they've poured today. Maybe a bit young, I'm not sure. Still not totally my style, but the best tannin structure out of all they've shown today.

This one is really interesting. A blend of Grenache, Petite Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignane, and Cinsault. Still incredibly fruity, but with a nice acidity to cut through the bullshit and bring it back down to earth.

Nice fruit profile, a little bit of anise and grape jam and pluots. But the finish is very thin.

This was the first 100% petit verdot wine I have tried so I wasn't sure what to expect, but this wine blew away my expectations. Really strong blueberry & mocha notes, just a very full & rich wine overall. More fruit forward than a petit sirah but otherwise rather similar in tannins & texture.

Garnet with a hint of brick at the edges, aromatic but restrained nose, palate is elegant even silky with delightful cherry, blueberry and cacoa and interesting woody-smoky notes. May be at peak for this small production gem.

This wine is confusing me. I have had it before and really enjoyed it. Tasting it today against the 2012 reserve zin and the zin is winning. I can't find it to describe it. It has been decanted for an hour but won't wake up.
