Sangiacomo Vineyards Chardonnay 2018

Maybe the best thing I could say is that if I liked big Cali chards, I would love this. Its beautifully made, I respect it. Its actually not huge, & restrained in so many ways. On nose-ripe starfruit & mango; On palate-Ripe mango, banana (?) blended with iodine & taffy. Medium acid, strong mid palate. Tried it cold & tried a tic above room temp. Prefer colder, as hides some of the tropical fruits, which aren’t my fave. To be fair, I think I would give higher score if this fit my flavor profile better. Its reasonably priced. Good with food-paired with a cavatelli dish with cooked squash & garlic. — 8 days ago

Signaterra / Benziger

Sauvignon Blanc 2020

This is the type of SB that I like. There is a richness or fat to it. Light toasted barrel, nectarine and stone fruit that falls off at the finish. Very light acid. Good food wine or sipper. WF — 2 days ago

Nelson Ranch Pinot Gris 2021

Meadowcroft Wines Nelson Ranch Pinot Gris 2021, Mendocino County, California

Pale lemon in color.

Very aromatic nose of flowers, citrus, lemons, green apples, sweet grapefruits, herbs and spices.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, bitter herbs, light vegetables, earth and spices.

Tangy finish with spices and almonds.

This is a very tasty Pinot Gris from Mendocino County. Nicely balanced, spicy and tangy.

This Single Vineyard Pinot Gris is showing a really pretty nose.

Feels more like a Californian Sauvignon Blanc.

Easy drinking and good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A small production of only 2,200 bottles.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$30.

Californio Hyde Vineyard Syrah 2008

Beautiful syrah that I will really have trouble identifying blindly. Ruby colour almost still purple even after 15 years, suggesting still beautiful years of ageing potential. On the nose, the bouquet is rich and intense, marked by the Bordeaux style, on a beautifully melted ageing with primary notes. The whole is rich and complex, between notes of black fruits (blackberry, blueberry, plum) tobacco ageing, chocolate, vanilla, cypress; evolved undergrowth notes and so on, it's a real taste journey!

Magnifique syrah que j’aurai vraiment du mal à identifier à l’aveugle. Robe rubis presqu’encore violine même après 15 ans, suggérant encore de belles années de potentiel de garde. Au nez le bouquet est riche et intense, marqué par le style bordelais, sur un élevage admirablement fondu aux notes primaire. L’ensemble est riche et complexe, entres notes de fruits noirs (mûre, myrtille, prune) élevage tabac, chocolat, vanille, cyprès; notes évoluées sous-bois et j’en passe, c’est un vrai voyage gustatif!
