2013 Groth Sauvignon Blanc

Napa Valley more

7/4/2015 - Loren Sonkin wrote: 86 points

$40 off the restaurant menu. A bit of a mark up but it served its purpose. Light green/white gold in color. The nose has slight grassiness to it with a bit of tropical fruit. Pleasant, slightly fat texture. Decent acidity. This was refreshing and worked outside on a warm evening.

Rather average cab, smooth but very mild body, no depth, a drinkable as everyday wine but would not buy again. Many better cabs at this price.

Pristine bottle with fill into the neck. This is an old school Bordeaux from a Bordeaux lovers vintage. As such, this really hit the spot. Tobacco, sweet pepper, gravel all melded together and fully resolved. Great texture and old claret taste. Drink now.

As usual a very nice blend that is drinking well right now. Smooth tannins, nice fruit with a strong finish. Probably not being as fair as I could we drank it right after a fantastic 1996 Plumpjack Cab.

2010 Herman Story Syrah Nuts and Bolts

Santa Barbara County more

7/4/2015 - markandsusanw Likes this wine: 93 points

Splash decant and strained for sediment (mild) ... This is our second to last bottle of this vintage and I can attest it's really singing right now. Smooth as silk, without a hint of heat, despite it's rather imposing ABV. Rich, blue-black fruit to open, but not too primary. Just a little cream (not overly oaky), and tannins are intact, but sweetened somewhat. Still some acid on the backend, with leather, smoke and spice rounding out the flavor profile. A great, big Paso Syrah with some substance and structure. No one makes 'em like Russell at Herman Story!

Another disappointing variance. The wine is nearing its end. Showing a tiny bit of old socks and earthy nebbiolo core, but otherwise off balance, acidic and not overly pleasant. Drink up.

Very expressive nose, black pepper and spices, plums and blackcurrants, hint of rose, pure and mineral; juicy palate, focused on freshness and tannic structure rather than power or weight, quite a linear abd transparent style; complete finish, good length. At restaurant Yamazato *, Okura Hotel, Anaterdam, NL.

2012 Peay Vineyards Pinot Noir Scallop Shelf Estate

Sonoma Coast more

7/4/2015 - marka wrote: 91 points

Opened at 1130am and slo-oxed for 4 hours before pouring into a glass. In the glass the nose of cherry and raspberry? came exploding out of the stem. It was wonderful. On the palate there was cherry and other red fruit.
Elegant on the palate while also showing some acidity that should help make this wine last. I did start to pick up some plum on the back end of the palate. By dinner at 5pm some oak was becoming evident on the nose and palate. Not much, but this will/should integrate in the coming years. I think this is primarily the pommard clone that we tasted in the barrel with Vanessa last week at the winery. That had a finish that went on forever.
Two bottles to go. Save the second one for 2020...if I am able.

Best showing of 3 bottles, loads of dark fruits, currants, cassis, blackberry, plum, earth, woody tannins on the very long finish. Nice complexity, and should drink well for several more years, paired with mushrooms ravioli.
