    August 22, 2020 - Surprisingly approachable, lovely balance, old school and not in your face. Reminded me of the style that first got me into wine when I was a student in the Bay Area in the late 70s. great complement to food, wonderful alone.

    December 30, 2019 - Our first Ceritas Cabernet of any vintage. Interesting and different. The nose is lighter black fruit, stems and pepper. Slightly green. On the palate, it’s a 50-50 mix of fruit and stems, and light-to-medium fine tannin. This wine has surprising body, but is possibly somewhat backwards currently where the green flavors are about half of what you get here. I think it’s very promising and needs some time. Will wait a year before opening the next one.

    November 27, 2019 - Such a beautiful and aromatic nose. Notes of sage, menthol, pine, light black fruit (black currant, black cherry). Perfect balance between tannin, body, and acid. This will age great.
