Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Chardonnay 2020

A lovely melding of Old World finesse and New World exuberance. Green apple, pear, white peach, ripe lemon oil, flint, acacia, and the barest hint of toasted brioche. Mouth watering acidity but not at the expense of texture. Long, beautifully ripe finish. Stunning. — 7 days ago

Les Picasses Chinon Cabernet Franc 2016

Low on the pyrazine scale. High on the earthy/balanced/elegance scale. Comes off a little bit shy at this point. Needs a two hour decant. Beautifully rustic. I like this better than the 2015. Better in 3-4 years. Good luck holding it. — 2 months ago

Shafer Vineyards

One Point Five Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, deep Ruby, slight purple edges, aromas of black and red fruits with some floral and herbaceous notes. On the palate flavors of this blackberry, currants and licorice with cacao, espresso, cedar and savory herbs. Long opulent finish, well balanced, full tight rich tannins ending with fruit, cedar and earthy character. Nice! — a day ago

Dog Point Vineyard

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Dog Point Vineyard combines experience of Ivan and Margaret Sutherland & James and Wendy Healy. Ivan and James met while working at Cloudy Bay Vineyards. Light straw with typical SB aromas adding a touch of floral mineral notes. On the palate flavors of melon and grapefruit with citrus and honeysuckle notes, generous acidity, great mouthfeel with long finish ending with a salty spice character. Exceptional wine! — a month ago

Finger Lakes Dry Rosé Blend 2020

100% Finger Lakes Cabernet Franc Rose’. Beautiful salmon color. Aromas and flavors of cherry and blackberry along with touches of pepper spice, grilled poblano pepper and herbs. Acidity is well balanced. (Probably due to 6 grams of RS). Fresh, zesty and lively. Good aperitif. — 2 months ago

Finger Lakes Gamay Noir 2020
