5/7/2019 - BobMilton Likes this wine:

Great rich Zin. Raspberries on the palate. Jammy as always, but a very well done jammy (I think there's a picture of this wine in the dictionary next to the definition of jammy!)
Red - Fortified

Very good ruby port. The 2011 Taylor is better, but this is better than the Taylor 2012

This used to be a great QPR Paso Zin. It has gotten even jammier, and now tastes like grape jelly. A bit too over the top now, but still drinkable.
Red
2016 Sans Liege The Offering Santa Barbara County Red Rhone Blend (view label images)
4/17/2019 - BobMilton Likes this wine:
92 points
A very nice Rhone red blend. Grenache dominates, so mostly red fruit (cherries and strawberries)

Good everyday drinker. Dark fruit, mild tannins not very complex.
Red
4/13/2019 - BobMilton Does not like this wine:
80 points
No where near as good as it was at the winery. There it was a good Rhone red blend with a touch of added complexity from the bourbon barrel. Now the bourbon barrel dominates - and not in a good way. Somewhat better the second day (so perhaps a really long decant would help). Definitely better with food. A well, win some lose some.
White

Very refreshing. Good acidity with touch of citrus and stone fruit.

An interesting Italian white. Stone fruit (maybe apricots) and citrus both contribute to the palate. Has good acidity.

Good everyday drinker in the fuller-bodied style.

Still a great everyday drinking Zin. Now a brand unto itself (and more than one wine), it's still a QPR champ.
Rosé

A refreshing rose - off dry with distinct strawberry notes.

Drank at the tasting of roses last night. Noticeably sweet (expected) with some strawberry notes. A refreshing drink if you like the style (I do, sometimes)

Typical Rombauer Zin - lush, rich, a touch jammy. Still think the Napa is the best of these, but this is very good.

An interesting Pinot. Doesn't taste like any other Pinot I've had. Darker than most, richer than most, but still hints of blueberries.
Red

Somewhat muted compared to previous bottles so might have been opened to early. Good hints of what may be to come (dark and red fruit, Syrah spice) just not quite there yet.

A very nice Pinot. Strong hints of blueberries on the palate. This really opened up the second night (probably too young to pop and pour)

Typical Rombauer - big, fruit forward, jammy and utterly satisfying if you like the style.
