Bodega Altolandon

Old Vine Bobal 2015


What a treat - fairly obscure Spanish varietal - seems like every time I’ve had a wine from Manchuela it’s been excellent. Very dark garnet color with really expressive, exuberant nose of wild herbs, black & blue fruit, underbrush, some medicinal, spice, smoke, earthy, some legit funk and it really evolved aromatically. On the palate it was med bodied w/great density of flavor without over-extraction. Nice interplay of acidity & tannins. Just juicy enough w/big time sour cherries and dusty spice flavors. Has that savage quality of Norton grape. Finish was decent verging on the rustic. — 3 months ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Ming L

While this costs $10 more than the 14’, it’s still only $25, and from much better vintage.
Bright red fruits with rose petals, worn leather, and black tea leaf. Medium body. Fresh acidity and firm resolving tannins. Love the fruit purity here.
A legit Barolo.

Groth Vineyards & Winery

OAKCROSS PRORIETARY RED Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

Beautiful Bordeaux Left Bank release from Groth. Still incredibly youthful but you can already smell the effort. Give this 2018 time to evolve in the glass or decant. Cassis coming through, oak, and olive tapenade from the Merlot. Tons of baking spices. Nutmeg and coriander and a touch of Chinese 5-spice and cinnamon. Big mouthfuls of tannin and acidity. This wine is meant for aging. 78% Cab, 20% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot. The Merlot shines brightly and really rounds out the wine beautifully. Not another Napa one-note Cab blend, this is legit. Big heat 14.9%

Moraga Vineyards

Estate Red Blend 2010

Matt Austin

From a 16 acre vineyard in the hills of Bel Air. Probably the most expensive vineyard property in the US. It’s currently owned by Rupert Murdoch, but this is from before his purchase in 2013. This is legit good. Much better than any Malibu wines I’ve had. 13.8 listed alcohol and fairly restrained style. Let’s rip down all of those mansions and plant some grapes! — 4 months ago
