Amador County Chenin Blanc 2015

9.2

With five and change years on it, this wine is beginning its transformation. What were bright and juicy lemon and quince in youth are starting to take on more steely, herbal notes as savory and saline elements come to the fore. The color, if anything is even more youthful than before, holding a greenish tinge along with its blonde highlights. Killer acidity still reigns supreme here for complete refreshment. Gonna save a bottle or two and see where it goes in another 5 years. ā€” 11 days ago

Forlorn Hope

Zinny Man Volume VII 2018

Wow didn't know zinfandel could taste like this! Very fresh on the nose with pine, sage, and green stemmy aromas. Some anise. Tart red fruit like cherries, strawberries, raspberries. Crunchy blackberries. Herbal undertone (dried). Med+ acidity and well integrated tannins. This almost feels like a Barbera from Piemonte. Truly exceptional stuff from Matthew Rorick and Forlorn Hope! ā€” 23 days ago
