2013 Tua Rita Giusto di Notri

    This is truly a SUPER Tuscan! The 2013 Tua Rita Giusto di Notri  is an incredibly rich and lush wine that is still very young and in need of a few more years in the cellar to soften its massive and youthful tannins. This Bordeaux blend from Tuscany tips in at 60% Cabernet […]

Ken Brown Rancho La Vina Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir lovers need to introduce themselves to Ken Brown Wines! Located on the southern edge of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, the winery specializes in small lot Pinot Noirs with about 3,000 cases produced annually with most lots at less than 250 cases. I highly recommend that you stop in for a visit the […]

Lewis Cellars Alec’s Blend 2015

  The 2015 Lewis Cellars Alec’s Blend is a wonderfully decadent effort. The wine is balanced and loaded with luscious fruit, racy acids and plush dusty tannins. Syrah forms the backbone of the blend at 50%, followed by 30% Merlot, 11% Cab Franc and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the fruit was sourced across selected vineyards […]

Bodegas Roda Cirsion 2005

  Bodegas Roda is my preferred winery in all of Spain. They produce wines that are both elegant and powerful and are made from either the Tempranillo or Garnacha grapes from Rioja. The 2005 Bodegas Roda Cirsion is 100% Tempranillo and is drinking exceptionally well now. Cirsion is the estate’s top offering and normally retails […]

2005 Cliff Lede Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

    What a massive and powerful Napa Cab! The 2005 Cliff Lede Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is bursting with concentrated flavors of blackberry and plums that are balanced by the cinnamon and licorice infused velvet tannins that cling incessantly on the palate. Even after 12 years, this dark purple juice has great structure replete […]

2007 Cakebread Benchland Select

    The 2007 Cakebread Benchland Select is simply gorgeous! Fruit for this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced almost evenly from Rutherford (56%) and Oakville (44%). After maturing for almost 10 years in the cellar, the wine is now perfectly balanced as delicious ripe fruit and juicy acids are harmonized and supported by soft dusty […]
