Hard to resist drinking these wines now! Terrific alternative to everyday Chardonnay of Sauvignon Blanc.

Pinot from the Sonoma Coastal Hills. This is an excellent terroir for
Pinot... you can almost taste a hint of salinity in the wine.

Great older cab in a very nice place right now with silky resolved tannins, nice residual fruit, and a delicate quality on balance.

I really enjoy this wine from Jumilla Spain. So much depth and fruit, and it tends to develop minerality and nuance as it ages

I think that this is a great aged Shiraz, definitely a 95 point value wine.
The alcohol and tannins all smooth out over time. Definitely decant. I smooth and delicate palate wine that can compete well across the board in the world of Syrah

This wine is still quite memorable... but is giving way to a touch of a port like character. Drink it up

Great fruit apparent on the front end, stepping aside to reveal great structure, and minerality. If you are consuming with dinner a slightly saltier dish will help once the fruit starts to subside... the salt actually enhances the remaining fruitiness.

This is just a magnificent syrah. So much more life in it... really at the beginning of a wide tasting window... but not missing anything. Perhaps with another 4-5 years of sitting this would be a 98 point wine!

Sometimes a wine just surprises you... exceeding expectation... hitting on all cylinders. Great fruit, potent, refined tannins, just the right elements of minerality and a touch of vegetation.
