  • 2014 Fisher Vineyards Unity

    Had it to chill a warm night (that luckily did not get too humid). Pretty consistent with the previous tasting, but better-
    Refreshing, crispy Rose. Color consistent with previous note. Remains somewhat more on the sweet side compared with cab franc roses I usually have, but not as sweet as I recalled. Got more balanced, and longer on the finish. Over three hours or so, we finished most of the bottle. Good on the chilled side. 91 solid and good qpr (especially at market pricing)

  • 2013 Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc St. Helena

    Very nice SB, and good return for the price. I would rank it below the Becklyn '13 SB, and above many other SB (e.g. Duckhorn) that I tried from the '13 vintage. Nice bright goldish color, abit more on the sweet side, but it balances over the course of the meal/opening time. On the palate, lime and orange. Nice medium finish. Relatively long legs. Somewhat even more enjoyable than I recall from the first time I tasted it @ ACV few months ago. More oak notes than other SB I had (in line with their production process). Overall, very enjoyable. Could have been 92 with more decant time. At the price range, certainly good QPR (if you buy @ market price and not @ winery price) . Can't complain, will get another one to test aging SB as I got the impression it could last longer in proper storage.
    91-92

  • 2013 Rhys Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard

    Tasted alongside the '13 alpine. It was very good, but the alpine 'won' the first night. Two days later, and slow decant- this one shows (7-25) much better nose, and even more balanced palate. Not as heavy fruit front compared with the same wine on Thursday evening meal (about 1/2 of the 375 bottle left from Thursday and re-examined). Dark purple on the color (both days). It was nice, and very enjoyable, but our vote is with alphine this time. I'd let the remaining sample bottles sleep for a while

    ~90 (-91)for what a single point estimate is worth

    6/24/2014 6:34:00 AM - Hello, odds In fact I have not had any of Marc's wines lately. They are not in Colorado. I've always sourced mine from San Jose or SoCal areas beyond the ones I've brought back myself when I'm in Alsace. Tentative plans have me in Italy for all of Oct and Nov, and if I end up going, I'll no doubt make a quick side trip to Strasbourg to see friends (from there the train is just 30 minutes to Colmar, the gateway to Alsace). If you come across some of Marc's Cru wines, please drop me a line, I'd love to grab some. thanks for the message, cheers,
