Mendocino; Napa; Sonoma Wine
Just a classic Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely texture, slippery almost yet light and fresh with acid driven flavors of grapefruit and gooseberry with a touch of orchard fruits on the nose. This has a subtle complexity that will satisfy the most discriminating...

A big, round wine with ton’s of soft and ever-so chewy plum and blueberry fruit gently touched with earth and spice notes with an almost silky texture and just a whisper of briary blackberry tones on the backend that leads to a round, cocoa and herb ti...

Unless you are incredibly lacking fortuna, you will find very good wine at most properties. I think the enjoyment is in the exploration and the beautiful Mediterranean scenery. As you have not visited Napa-Sonoma before, you are in for a treat. Even the coffee and the local produce is good. People live here for lifestyle and it shows... all ... Read More
Fun evening tonight with friends, some old some new, great food and some stellar and others not so stellar wines. I even ventured outside Sonoma just for you Al.Started with bubbles.Bubbles done right. This was a very enjoyable starter. New ultra-hip label. Left me kind of torn. The Gimonnet was in a different league. This reminded me of the Und... Read More
Czarina, when I started drinking zin back in the '70s, it only had 12~12.5% alcohol from any maker. Now sometimes even 16%. This is not only a problem for zin, but also for cabernet sauvignon and other varietals in California. Really bad in places like Paso Robles and Lodi, but plenty of culprits up in Napa and even Sonoma. Unfortunately it's al... Read More
DMCKER, Also to answer your previous post: o Isaac, how many roadtrips do you guys take out of Berkeley on a weekend or three (or better yet weekday)? Any personal connections going already with winemakers in Napa, Sonoma, Marin, Mendocino, Lake Counties, down in the Santa Cruz mountains and the Pinnacles, or even up in Lodi?Ha! We don't get to ...

So Isaac, how many roadtrips do you guys take out of Berkeley on a weekend or three (or better yet weekday)? Any personal connections going already with winemakers in Napa, Sonoma, Marin, Mendocino, Lake Counties, down in the Santa Cruz mountains and the Pinnacles, or even up in Lodi?Am also curious (and indicated that in my response) as to what...

"It seems you People only drink California wines. Is it a patriotic stand or just geographic convenience?Just curious, and a little jealous." I don't usually post the wines I drink in this thread, nor do another regular or two, but I do not drink a fraction of the CA wines that are drunk by those who do post here. OT is fortunate enough to be on... Read More
After Willamette, on your way down the coast, you should take it very slow and spend some time once you hit Mendocino. Then the Sonoma Coast. Only then Napa.It's kinda like driving from San Fran down to Disneyland, Napa being that. The best part of the trip is Big Sur and Santa Barbara and Malibu, which in my parallel are the other wine regions ... Read More
I was thinking more that it's time for a professional like Spurrier to take something like this on, although the pros ignore these kinds of things now, methinks.!!!!!!Fox, I'm offended. As I mentioned, I've done these Syrah tastings many times and usually everyone was a "pro" in that they were in the wine business as retailers, importers, sommel... Read More
Back at ya, Kim.Thank you for the excellent list. The good news is that I live in a large metropolitan area. So, it is possible that I might be able to find some of the labels that you have suggested. As it turns out, you caught me in a mistatement. (I'm old. I forget.) I have had another South African wine, and it was a Pinotage from Neil ... Read More
Probably more impressive than the Étoile Brut, especially if you like more fruit. It keeps the elegance of the Brut, but brings forward the nuttiness I couldn't easily find while adding fresh raspberry and cherry to the mix. The great finish is kept intact. Read More
