Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard Merlot Blend

Cattail creek wine dinner. Characteristics of pencil lead, tobacco, black cherry, and liquorish. The palate has a lifted acidity and spicy tannins but don't obscure the fruit expression. Paired with petite ribeye en persillade. — 5 days ago

9.0

Impressive NZ SB: you have to like this in your face style: huge blast of grapefruit & gooseberry, grassy herbal notes, stones & minerals, it is intense. Not too acidic or angular on palate - particularly if you let it warm up just a bit, fruit turns smoother & more tropical, but still that wall of grapefruit & gooseberry. Lingering dry finish resonates — 5 months ago

Truncated dinner party notes. This ‘18 is uncommonly open and friendly for a Storybook Zin, which typically take years to unfurl. Really nice ripe flavors and perfect balance. — a month ago

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

Possibly one of the best Cabernet Sauvignons I have had from California in the $20 range. Depth, character, body along with a symphony of dark fruit and vanilla aromas. Add that up with some silky mild tannins makes this Paso Robles cab a definite addition to my wine rotation. — 5 months ago
