  • 2009 Audelssa Estate Winery Zinfandel

    Decanted 20 minutes prior to pairing with penne pasta and a rich, slightly spicy Italian sausage marinara. A medium-dark garnet in the glass, with thinning edges and quick-forming legs. A nose of sweet pipe tobacco and dried fruits, reminiscent of Amarone. Good intensity and concentration on the palate, with an intriguing touch of oxidation; decent acidity and not at all jammy. Drinks much older than I'd think a 2009 Erich Bradley-made wine would. Obtained directly from the Audelssa Wine Club.

  • 2008 Bjornstad Pinot Noir Hellenthal Vineyard

    A medium garnet in the glass, a bit darker than normal for a Sonoma pinot noir, with dramatic, quick-forming legs. Stewed plums, dark cherry and baking spices on the nose. Quite broad on the palate, the youthful acidity now tempered with time, very good intensity and concentration is heightened with a pronounced minty/cedar-tinged finish. This was an excellent pairing for sauteed and oven-finished Atlantic salmon with a spicy tomato vinaigrette! Wish Greg all the best!

  • 2011 Villa Mattielli Amarone della Valpolicella

    Shock-decanted and then seriously swished for most of an hour before pairing with pizza and an Italian salad. A medium clear bright ruby in the glass leading out to slightly thinned edges. The nose features candied dark cherries, a hint of raisin/prune, tobacco and a hint of Iris. Quite fruit-forward on the palate, with very good intensity and concentration. Definitely very young, but very good room for improvement. Will hold remaining bottles for 3-5 years before trying again.
