Mendo Benchlands Zinfandel-Nero d'Avola Blend 2019

2019. I really enjoyed the two bottles of this vintage I had in 2020, and glad I had one more in the cellar to pull out for National Pizza Day 🍕!!!
I probably won’t age the 2021 & 2022 bottles I have this long as the “pop” of juicy red fruits is a little muted.

Matthias & Sina Gubler Clos Martha Pinot Noir 2020

Gorgeous aromas. Mid season sweet cherry fruit, spices, some gorgeous sweet oak, wet earth, florals and aromas that penetrate deep in the nasal cavity. Almost some barely ripe blackberry and cassis. Really a whole world of difference than last August. Just silly good aromas. Palate is ripe and juicy with a lithe, silky texture. Awesome purity and balance and such haunting delicacy. Sweet fruit and so nimble this is shockingly great. I vastly underrated this last time. Sweet, lithe and ripe tannins. This is stunning and achingly beautiful. 9.6 for now. Let’s see what air does to this. — 5 months ago

Venturi Vineyard Vermentino 2022

2022. Enjoyed the 2021 earlier this year, but this pairing of ricotta ravioli and brown butter sage sauce really worked well with the nutty bitterness in the finish of the wine. — 8 months ago

Post Flirtation White Marsanne blend 2022

From Cambridge Wines Cyber Monday. Smells like feet lol, taste-wise I’m getting grapefruit, maybe some vanilla, sour apple 🤔 UPDATE: ok, this has really opened up and the 👣 has subsided. Still grapefruit but also chamomile. Lovely ❤️ — 3 months ago

Benchlands Zinfandel Blend

What a vibrant and simple (in the best way) blend from Martha Stoumen. Light effervescence on the nose of cherry and cedar forest. Nice structure with notes of blackberry bramble mushroom and Capri Sun. Ends silky and smooth as Superman’s cape. — 7 months ago

I'm Prickly Piquette

The “Cactus” Piquette was made from their Out to the Meadow field blend skins. This is my last bottle of the Cactus, and it really held up well in the fridge. Paired great with roasted asparagus with lemon and Swiss chard with balsamic. — 9 months ago

Varietally Incorrect Zinfandel 2021

2021. We loved this lighter bodied, lower abv Zinfandel. The tart red fruits made a perfect match with both a kale salad with dried cranberries and with pasta and spicy sausages. — a month ago

Benson Ranch Young Vine Nero d'Avola Rosato

60% Nero d'Avola 2021, 40% Nero d'Avola 2020. Whole clusters (stems intact) foot tread for an overnight maceration on skins before pressing the following day. Fermented and aged separately in neutral tanks. Unfined. Unfiltered. Sediment expected.
Vineyards: Bricarelli Ranch, Ukiah, Mendocino County; 15-year-old head trained, dry-farmed vineyard. Chiarito-Ling Vineyard, Ukiah, Mendocino County; dry-farmed. I really enjoyed the 2019 and 2020 Benson Ranch Rosato and this multi-vintage wine is great too. Probably the most I’ve heard my wife rave about a rosé.

Yep. I enjoy her wines but the prices are not good.
