  • 2012 Sbragia Family Merlot Home Ranch

    Nose is dark, deep, fudge and fig. Entry is a full bodied wine that has notes of fudge, black cherry, and a little mushroom, dark earth on the front and middle with rhubarb. There is quite a bit of complexity in the finish. The darker merlot, not as refined as wines like the Prisoner Wine Co Thorn (but to me that means it's likely more true to the varietal since Thorn really isn't). Brambly. A little heat still on the finish but cinnamon was peeking through. To me, this is really more of a classic merlot. Reminds me a bit of the Bancroft Ranch Howell Mountain Merlot as far as style goes, but there isn't much of that mountain characteristic (Home Ranch is on clay soil, lower Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma). I think there are 2 more bottles of this somewhere, and would love to see how five years of cellar age will appreciate these notes. Drink by 2023

  • 2014 Kuhlman Cellars Viognier Bingham Family Vineyards

    A budding young wine. This is a rather crazy wine. A bit sweet, a bit tart, and a bit acidic. Pretty much in that order. This wine was served in the 40's. A bit of a different wine when it gets warmer (I prefer the warmer). When served cold, this one almost seems a bit effervescent on the entry with very distinct notes of granny smith apple hit hitting you across the fac eimmediately. That sweet, yet tart, young fruit kind of note. Melon and kiwi in the middle, building acidity towards a sharply acidic lemongrass finish. After warming, the granny smith apple notes do almost die completely, showing more of a graham cracker lemon meringue in the front, still with a soft entry and middle. The middle of the wine is almost more of an asian pear or peach, with the finish still rather acidic with notes of lemon and lime. Another good one by Kuhlman! Drink now - 2017

  • 2009 William Harrison Cabernet Franc Rutherford

    I didn't make really good cliff's notes on this one, but I remembered thinking that this one has almost come into prime, but is still probably a year away before this is in the "OMG REALLY??!!?!" realm. Not going to rate this experience mainly because I have just about forgotten every note with exception to brambly notes and Rutherford dust on the front (boysenberry and black cherry) and rather gritty tannin on the finish. This was a full bodied wine no doubt, and would put many a 2009 Cab Francs to shame already. Out of my 48 bottles in the Rutherford AVA, almost 30 of them are from William Harrison. This producer has harvested the true embodiment of Rutherford. No reason to buy anything else to represent the Rutherford AVA.
