  • 2008 Ridge Geyserville

    The 2008 Geyserville is a blend of 72% zinfandel, 20% Carignane, 6% Petite Sirah, and 2% Mataro (Mouvedre). it had a sweeter edge of big blackberries with a smoky backbone that I attribute to the Mataro, with flavors of raspberries and figs blended in a brambly pie with a faint hint of cedear. The 2007 vintage, which is the current release, is 58% Zinfandel, 22% Carignane, 18% Petite Sirah and 2% Mataro, which made for a chocolate blackberry pie with brandied blackberries and coffee, followed by molasses and bittersweet cocoa over stewed fruit. Each one of these blends is hand selected from a field blend, parcel by parcel, and depending on the best of the crop for a given vintage, the blend can change significantly. Wine after all is half science, half dream, and half magic.

  • 2008 Ridge Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains

    This is a parcel selection, and is intended for longevity and complexity. It is more vibrant than the Jimsomore, and has a bright acidity and is refreshingly ful of stone fruit and Meyer lemons, with some tropical influences.

  • NV Zonin Prosecco

    The Prosecco OG Brut is the palest of straw colored, and is 100% Prosecco.

    On the palate, I taste brioche grand marnier french toast, apples, and marzipan, while I smelled apple blossoms and ginger. Considering that this is only $15, my Prosecco snobbery has been broken. Gone are my thoughts of sweet, cheap sparkling wine, and in are my mm mm good tweets!
