Lodi Zinfandel 2018

Signature Zinfandel spice, but wrapped up in deceptively mid weight body with a nice lift of acidity. Perfect with chimichurri flank steak. — 16 days ago

Sandlands Vineyards

Sonoma County Chardonnay 2018

Oh, how I’ve missed you. Has some similarities to the Chenin, but obviously lighter bodied, higher acid, and everything good. — 2 years ago

Coombsville Merlot 2017

Blueberry pie, red berries, flowers, moderate tannins, acidity is on the higher side. Kind of a leaner, more elegant style Merlot. — 2 years ago


Lodi Chenin Blanc 2020

Popped and poured; no formal notes. Deep straw color. Lemon, Brazil nut, white flowers. Wooly. Great acid. Lovely. Might be the best Lodi Chenin from Sandlands yet. — 10 days ago

Lodi Red Table Win 2020

Popped and poured, consumed over three days and best on Day 2. No formal notes. This is the third vintage of Sandlands “Red Table Wine” from Lodi and it has become a “must cop” for me. Endowed with lovely fruit and zippy acid, it’s very versatile and a sublime pairing with a variety of meals. A combination of three varieties and three vineyards in three equal parts; Cinsault from the Bechthold (1886), Carignane from Spenker Ranch (1900) and Zinfandel from Kirschenmann (1915); 12 barrels and one 500L puncheon produced. — 25 days ago

California Refosco 2017

I think the only other Napa Refosco other than Matthiasson (I wouldn’t take a bullet for this statement). Man, Refosco loves Napa. This has the same wilddarkfruitedferalolivey character with weightless grip. Super delicious. Chant with me...MORE NAPA REFOSCO! — 2 years ago

Lodi Cinsault 2020

Popped and poured; no formal notes. This vineyard was planted in 1886. Bright cherry and bruised strawberry fruits with some orange curaçao, espresso a light kiss of spices. Overall, there’s an impression of freshness that’s super attractive. Forget what you think you know about Lodi; wines like this flip the script. A lovely accompaniment with burgers on a summer night. Only 5 barrels produced. — 19 days ago
