Added May 25 at 8:52pmFirst impression is blueberry pie. Some very nice acidity and red and black cherry coming through on the back end. Not overly complex but definitely a nice mid-week drinker.

Added May 24 at 8:51pmReally good Paso Rose. A bit of a darker red, there's plenty of fresh strawberry, rhubarb, bright red cherry and a touch of citrus. There's nice crisp acidity and a fairly long finish for a Rose. Overall, an excellent summer time quaff.

Added May 19 at 6:59pmThis one is pretty much past its prime but still trying to hang in there. A bit musty on the nose but on the palate there's still a touch of ripe black cherry, tar and a bit of iodine. The acidity kind of overpowers the slick tannins that are left. Doing some internet research it appears Napadan is no longer in business.

Added May 18 at 6:59pmWas expecting the worst since this was a "gift", it's an '04 Finger Lakes Syrah and most likely wasn't optimally stored. In actuality, this NY Syrah is kind of nice. It is slightly brickish in color and the nose is a bit muted. There is still some nice black cherry and ripe green plum, a touch of cedar, fairly decent acidity and a pretty nice, lingering finish. All in all a very pleasant surprise.

Added May 14 at 8:22pmFantastic Brunello. This was brought back from a trip to Italy several years ago and has been resting comfortably. L's B-day along with Moms' day prompting opening this. Opened a few days a head of time, this poured out a bit brickish in color. Some nice dark fruit on the nose along with just a hint of smoke. On the palate there's plenty of black cherry, ripe black plum, a touch of tar, bracing acidity, well integrated tannins and a fairly long finish.

Added May 11 at 9:45pmInteresting Macedonian red made from Vranec and Plavec grapes. Big blue and black fruits on the nose with a touch of smoke. Cooked black cherry, prune, a touch of tar, medium acidity, somewhat coarse tannins and a medium finish. This is fairly simple, lacking a mid palate and a bit rough on the edges.

Added May 9 at 8:33amThis is a big, dark Anderson Valley zin from Valdez,probably the least restrained they make. Loads of ripe black cherries, blackberries, fig, dried plum along with a touch of smoke and spice. This wine carries its not shy alcohol of 15.2% very well. The tannins are smooth and well integrated along with a fairly long finish.

Added May 8 at 5:36pmVery interesting Greek rose, made from Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza grape varieties. Nice salmon pink color. There's crushed bing cherry on the nose. On the palate is some lemon lime citrus, bright red cherry, a touch of strawberry, nice acidity and a medium finish. There are no significant bubbles present but there is a touch of CO2 here.

Added May 5 at 7:07pmSolid white blend from Adelaida. The Viognier comes through on the nose with really nice floral aromatics. On the palate the Roussanne brings some butterscotch, while the Grenache Blanc brings along a creamy lemon note. Very nice acidity cleans things up along with a medium long finish. At 14.8% abv the alcohol is not shy but is well balanced with the floral, stone and citrus flavors.
