Grower Collection Calesa Vineyard Five Blocks Petaluma Gap Chardonnay 2019

I believe this is my first Petaluma Gap chard.
Intensely aromatic on the nose with Asian pear, apricot, citrus peels, subtle tropical fruits, white florals, and mint. Richly textured on the palate with oak nuances and fresh acidic lift.
A beauty.

Palacio Del Burgo

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2006

I can smell the wind, the sun, the stone buildings of Spain in this well made of straightforward Rioja. This 2006 is just coming into it’s given that it may have been fruit forward in its early life. I prefer the crianza from this same wine maker, the reserva goes down enjoyably easy. — 3 years ago

Le Macchiole

Messorio Toscana Merlot 2011

Very New World style. By the nose and palate, this one allost seemed to resemble a Malbec. I believe this is 100% Merlot. Decadent black and purple youthful fruit and a hint of chocolate on the nose. Entry is gritty, black and purple fruit with cocoa nibs and herbal character. Herbs carry to the middle where a baking spice note shows, but again this wind seems to have more of a dark purple and tarry black fruit background. Very weighted finish. Thick and inky. I think this could benefit from a few more years of bottle aging but drinking well now! — 3 years ago

In agreement with Mark here...very new world in style. All merlot. Wouldn’t have guessed it was Italian at all. Rich and ripe. Ripe blackberry, blueberry and dark cocoa dusted dates on the nose and a similar profile on the palate...acidity and tannins are fairly high, keeping this wine in its place before getting too high octane. One of the better Italian wines I’ve had.

Rossese di Dolceacqua 2016

Fabulous vintage from this amazing small producer. The juice shows bright and lively in the glass. The nose relveals a very rich and sophisticated range of aromas, going from the fruit of the ripe red cherries to more herbal balsamic scents like rosemary, sage, thyme, laurel, marjolaine and to more mineral aromas. The energy runs in the mouth as well, taking you deeply into the essence of the Ligurian spirit: stone, seasalt, mediterannean woodlands, wind, sun, rain, seaspray. Nothing is yelled but a lot is told. A true watercolor of the terroir. — 2 years ago

Berryessa Gap

Yolo County Petite Sirah 2017

It’s dark. Black-purple. Slightly edged in red. Nose is heady. Stewed fruits and dark unsweetened chocolate. Moss. Wet moss in there too. And some herbal extract. Not sure which. Flavor is rich. Slightly ‘sweet’ or fruity. Dark, ripe stone fruits. Plenty of acid cuts through though. Not stain the teeth and dry the tongue tannic as some Petite Sirah tends towards. There’s a smokey, savory element in there too. This is great. A big red, but one with elegance and style. — 2 years ago
