Over the hill. Bricky and most of the fruit was gone.
I expected more from a Mag.

Great bottle. Dark dark color.... intense solid fruit with well intergrated tannins. Recommended.

Outstanding bottle. Great fruit and tannins were solid but balanced.
One of the best reds of the year.

This was an outstanding bottle. Aged 10 years. The fruit was solid and integrated without being in your face. Loved it.

I was surprised that it was getting a little "tired" so soon.
Fortunately this was my last 2007.

This picpoul is pretty acidic and really "stings the lips".
Although good, I prefer Adelaida Picpoul Blanc.

This was a Mag. It held up very well. The cork was excellent and the wine still had a lot of fruit with smooth tannins. Overall it was a very good bottle.

Last bottle. Just an all around great wine.
I found out about them when I was in Oregon drinking a bottle of Caymus Special Select and the waiter said... if you like that you gotta try Leonetti. Definitely a cooler weather fruit profile but get stuff.

Fruit was "sour" tasting and the tannins were basically gone.

Decent Napa cab for the price.
But I am a Paso fan and you can get better for less.... usually equivalent wines from Paso are about 50% of the equivalent Napa wine.

Get some while you can... the gap will close in time.

This is a nice pinot blanc rose. Light and refreshing.
Probably would feel more at home in a tall water glass.

Excellent light patio wine

2015 was an outstanding year in Paso.
This wine has solid fruit and good acidity.
Great summer drinker.

Hearst Produces some good wines for the money. Not gaga but solid fruit and tannins.

On March 2 2018 I drank my last bottle. I found this wine to be a outstanding value. The fruit was solid and the tannins were still very firm... ie "roll you gums up".
I plan to get more.

Epoch makes some BIG wines. This one did not disappoint. Full on fruit and tannins. A little young, but "oh well".

This has become one of my favorites in our "white rotation". Very solid effort with good acidity and fruit.

I prefer the "Sculptera Viognier" vs. the Heroes, but this last bottle was very nice. SOFT, but still good fruit and low acidity... so if you like less acid SavBlanc then give it a try.

Decent, but not great.

This is my favorite Sauvignon Blanc. Adam Lazarre makes wine for a lot of wineries, but this their label. It is stunningly complex yet subtle. The fruit is very solid and the acidity is balanced but soft.
If you haven't tried it go online and get some. The Lazarre's are great people and put their heart into producing the best possible wines.
They sure did it with this one.

Found this wine at a French Restaurant in Paso Robles. It is a great food white but also is nice alone. The fruit is solid and the acidity is pretty high... for me it "cuts" through the pallet with food, so they both taste better.

Vouvray's tend to be harsh. This one is lush and a little sweet on the first sips. Once you get into it the fruit is solid and the acidity is very balanced. This is going into my "white rotation".

This is the finest example of Sav Blanc from Paso, or anywhere else.
Truely a treat. Unfortunately others though so and it is sold out.
Awaiting the 2017 vintage.
Adam and Angie Lazarre are great people and truely dedicated to making the best wines possible. Very talented.

Everything Per Cazo makes is top shelf. This is no exception. Solid fruit and nicely balanced tannins.

Solid wine just a little pricey for what you get.
The fruit was not as balanced as I like.

I have a lot of vintages of the Blackcat. The 2009 has been drinking good so I decided to drink one of my 2007. WOW... what a treat. It was one of those wines where you just sit there saying how good it is. A teriffic bottle.... smooth solid fruit and tannins. Just a winner.

Very Drinkable, but I would buy the Bougrier Pure Loire, which is just as good a a few bucks a bottle cheaper.

Great value in a smooth Sav Blanc.
I picked it up at total wine on sale for $12.74.
Hard to beat as a daily drinker at this price.

Excellent low priced Chenin Blanc...
Nice fruit with enough acidity to "cut through"
I highly recommend you try it.

In my opinion Alta Colina has the best syrahs on the planet. They are BIG full bodied with balanced tannins. This was a 2011 so another 5 years it would have just been that much better, but I couldn't wait.
Each of their "big" three has a its own character but all are great.
If you have not tried them.... get a bottle.
