We're getting moderate notes of Brettanomyces or “Brett”. Not agreeable with our palates.

Tasting very nicely. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 13% Cab Franc, 6.5% Malbec & 6.5% Petit Verdot make for an interesting Bordeaux meritage. Medium to full body, a bit of pepper on the palate and perfectly balanced.

The wine looks Garnet colored. The legs are Slow. It smells like Blackberry, and Black Pepper with a high quality earthiness. One of our favorites!

The 2006 vintage is actually a blend of 56% Sangiovese, 25% Malbec and 19% Merlot. A different animal from the 2005 vintage yet still a nice wine and decent value.

From the Rancho Sisquoc Info Sheet:

"(40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 27% Merlot and 13% Malbec.) The aromas in this bright cherry colored blend are of toasted almond, caramel, toffee and fudge with subtle plum, date and blackberry reduction. The very smooth mouth shows an abundance of black cherry and dried dark fruits with hints of clove that lead to a fruit filled oakiness on a friendly palate. Barrel aged 15 months in French & Hungarian oak. Flood Family Vineyards. pH 3.54 TA 6.5 Alcohol 14.4%"

Whom am I to disagree? This a consistently excellent blend from Rancho Sisquoc. Always a favorite go-to in our household.

Very nice. Great balance, full bodied. Cabernet Sauvignon seems to endure on the palate. Enjoyed with raviolis & marinara. This could easily become a daily habit.

Open and pleasant. Very smooth finish. Paired well with oak-barbequed flatiron steak.

Citrus and pineapple giving way to dry and well balanced classic sauvignon blanc. Another nice Brander white.

This is a big Syrah. Initial strong pepper on the palate gives way to berries, cherries and complexity. There's a lot going on in this wine. Paired very well with mushroom filled ravioli and tomato basil sauce. Excellent quality and one of our favorites! Thank you Mr. Lindquist!
