Sublime!! I opened this early as their next release is out now. When I bought my first allotment after being on their waiting list for a year, I thought the wine had the look of Koolaid. But looks can be deceiving and they are with Wiiliams Selyem. Perfect cherry, light almond, very light oak and bramble. A near perfect long finish..

Popped and poured. Nose of black raspberry, bright cherry, cracked pepper, hints of herbs. On the palate, great texture and mouthfeel with flavors of blackberry and bright cherry along with sage and pepper. Nice balanced finish. Drink with a short decant or hold, no hurry.

Shared with pat at Selkirk manor to celebrate the nd of the work week. I had been holding on to these, waiting to share again with marty s. Where has the time gone? A year and a half since last tasted 6/2014. Had to open this one as longevity was coming into question. This bottle showed very well. Nos eis more generous. Fruit is still expressive but is a bit tamer than last time. Seems to be in a perfect place right now. Will finish off the rest this year.

Of course I only waited 7 months to return to this gem of a Zin. Rich, red and black fruits round out the mouth. The end zings with some peppery and spicy notes. Great bottle.

Didn't enjoy this as much as the one six weeks ago. This seemed sweeter to me, with lots of honey and honeydew flavors. The last was fresher and brighter.

I bought an earlier vintage of this an it was okay, but this is thin and not worth $13. Thought really poor a year ago; slightly better now.

2012 Oakville Grocery Chardonnay

Russian River Valley more

2/12/2016 - mflesh wrote: NR

This wine resembled the last bottle perhaps a little bit, but this one seemed a lot more youthful and vibrant than the other one I had. Partial malolactic, SLIGHTLY more butter than old world. This wine went very well with salmon patties but would probably go well with just about anything. The perfect "picnic wine" and I guess that is the intent with the label it carries! The nose was still quite young with passionfruit, mango. The entry was quite soft with peach, pear, and a rye "bready" kind of undernote in the middle. Finishes a little more crisp with increased acidity and even a sign of tannin and white pepper! This wine is very well balanced. This one would go well with cheeses, sandwiches, chicken, salmon, or just about anything you would pack in a picnic basket. A nice little wine for $20!

2013 Martinelli Zinfandel Lolita Ranch

Russian River Valley more

2/12/2016 - RobbieC Likes this wine: NR

Two hour decant. Light and crisp but still full of dark berry and earthy flavors. Well balanced with no tannic bite. Offers a level of sophistication that's not often found in a California Zin. Feels like it's too young now - only 3% of CT bottles consumed - and will reward several years in cellar. It's still a bit "hot" too. Score in the 91-93 range. Side note: I'm torn between the QPR of Martinelli Zins - getting a bit steep - and the refined, sophisticated wines they produce.

Nice dark fruit on the nose, but leads to the single most "charred rare ribeye" I've ever encountered. I will update if it changes overnight, but man right now it is hugely one dimensional.

Aromas of mulberry, blueberry, raspberry and lavender. Nose is really jumping out of the glass. Flavors of boysenberry, blueberry pie, mulberry and raspberry. Ends with a 25-30 second finish with the mulberry theme. Still my favorite Carlisle zin.

2007 Sky Saddle Pinot Noir

2/12/2016 - Tranquility Base Likes this wine: 89 points

This delivered more than I expected. I feared that it might be over the hill, but no so; it had aged nicely and probably could have aged longer. It was on the earthier, robust side of Pinot noir experiences. But it tasted good, with a lot of substance from the terroir coming through. I would buy it again.
