Sativa Mendocino Carignan 2017

Would have given it maybe an 8.5 on night one. Just had one glass and it was only OK. A little sharp. It really opened up by night two and I felt like it had more flavor and character. — 2 months ago

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Really only comes alive with fatty foods or cheeses. Drank at a Lioco tasting at a friend’s place and we agreed that, on its own it’s too closed up and austere, but blossoms with food! — a month ago

Ojo de Perdiz Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Chardonnay Rosé 2020

Pale pink/orange color, medium, slightly oily body with a prominent floral nose, with notes of orange blossom, slight baking notes and mandarin citrus, with a somewhat deep, underlying funk hidden in the background. Palate has prominent citrus, slightly underripe lemon and acidity from the start, with a slightly creamy finish with hints of watermelon rind and a subtle minerality that stays with you on a lingering finish. It’s very good, but I don’t know if it’s for all that often. — a year ago

Mendocino County Pinot Noir

Juicy and jammy for a Pinot. Just got back from Anderson Valley and this has the nose of a wine from that region. Pallet wise it’s very fruit forward. Good finish, easy drinking wine. — 2 years ago
