  • Murrieta's Well Meritage White Livermore Valley 2011


    60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% SemillonWaxy, with a big semillon nose showing of aromas of raw almond green hazelnut, green pear skin, and earthy base notes. With lots of acid up front, followed by good depth of flavors, this comes across as complex with orchard fruits, earthy accents, and hints of older wood. With a little air it develops a slightly ...

  • Muscat Canelli Los Tesoros Livermore Valley 2012


    A dry, still version.A hint of sage greets the nose followed by creamy peach and lemon chiffon all topped with iris floral notes. Cool, crisp and acid driven with impressive richness on entry, this shows lovey focus on the palate with a bit of fruit skin tannin on the adding a bit of mouthgrab. This remains a bit grapey and peachy while showing... Read More

  • Wente the Nth Degree Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore 2011


    Cocoa, briar, cigar box, and dark fruit which is both a bit plummy and reminiscent of black currant preserves greet the nose. Theres a noticeable hit of oak, spicy and with the smell of burnt sugar that builds in the glass. Fairly rich, with good power, and really fine acids that help keep everything bright on the palate. The base of tannins are... Read More

  • Wente Vineyards Chardonnay Livermore Valley Eric's Small Lot 2012


    100% SS, aged sur lie six monthsThis is quite complex on the nose, blending crab apple fruit with fine steely minerality and the floral and nutty notes that ageing on the lees contributes. Clean and focused up front, with a nice creamy edge to rather mineral driven flavors of green apple and green pear fruit. This has a nicely layered feel to it... Read More

    Spicy with a touch of grass accenting the subtle wood spice and soft cooked plum , blackberry and licorice aromas of the nose. Broad and bright and rich with tart plum and candied blackberry fruit on entry. there are well managed, soft tannins here adding nice support though this never becomes thick or chewy. A touch of leather and earth adds so... Read More

  • Concannon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley 2009


    Rather oaky on the nose with a deep base of earth and black spice. In the mouth this shows off juicy acids and soft tannins that help to support fruit that is perhaps a touch simple but very precise and clear all mineral tinged and slightly orange toned black currant and wild blackberry fruit. This has a fabulous texture, fresh and old school wi... Read More
