  • 2017 Sea Smoke Pinot Noir Southing

    Deep pink to pale purple in color super young and raw still reeks of the potential in this wine. Notes present are an abundance of raspberry, cherry, cola, earth, dry mineral, underbrush, notes of pie crust and vanilla balanced by lively acidity. This wine is so fresh and light it is a portal to which it came. You can literally smell it’s terroir and taste it refreshingly so throughout. The best young Pinot I’ve had in 10 yrs or so. Stunningly sexy juice here. An instant classic I mean you could age it but why??? It is that good now.

  • 2016 Ridge Zinfandel Pagani Ranch

    Deep ruby in color this wine was decanted 30 min and then drank over the next 3 hrs. Fruit forward almost oozing so offset by acidity oak and dusty tannin. Notes found throughout are of black raspberry, blackberry, plum,Vanilla, leather, dusty stone, and baking spices. Very sweet on the palate but this is balanced by the oak on the nose and the minerality on the swallow being that the stone dust almost washes the palate before a finish that builds. Drink- 2025.

  • 2003 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

    Decanted 4 hours. Deep garnet in color with a nice earthy musk of dried fruits and spices. Notes of gravel, stone, spicy tobacco, Spanish Cedar, Java chip, black currants, cherries, plum and underbrush. Spicy yet perfectly balanced between the dryness of fruit as the wine gets fruitier and more of a blackberry blueberry skin finish. Wonderful wine with velvety tannins 8-9 yrs left.
