  • David Bruce Zinfandel Mendocino 1981


    Old and dusty on the nose; not a lot of fruit left here. Spicy with a caramel base, some black pepper, and a hint of black fruit. Smooth with a hint of sweetness on entry and a nice touch of spicy raspberry fruit on the palate. High acid and smoothly textured though not much fruit left and dusty, mineral flavors on the modest finish. Drinkable ... Read More

  • Pinot Noir Anderson Valley 2009


    This Pinot has won me over. What a terrific bottle, tons of cherries in the mouth, very well balanced and sometimes, if you are lucky WTSO offers this for under $20. I generally find Pinot a bit overpriced for the payoff, but this one is a great exception. Beautifully crafted by the always reliable vintners at David Bruce. Read More

  • David Bruce Appellation Series Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2009


    Light to medium bodied, but a surprising and pleasant cherry and stone fruit tartness. Read More

  • David Bruce Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2007


    Dusty cedar powder on the nose with "warm" red and black berry notes. Flavors of black cherry and red berries with an earthiness, hints of nutmeg and a mineral note. Tart berry fruit. Dry. Wood and mineral notes throughout. Nice. 88 pts. Read More

  • David Bruce Pinot Noir Anderson Valley 2007


    Aromas of sage and a touch of wildflowers, and I would start to think this would be a very flowery Pinot until the first sip where a nice palette of raspberry and dark cherry gave me a pleasant surprise. There is some bright fruit in this glass with a good bit of acidity all leading to a pleasant strawberry finish. Read More

  • Disapointed with my search results for Temecula. Most were from 2010...Anyway, we are going on a family vacation in the area and I need some assistance in choosing a few wineries to hit.  Most of my research so far has been the wineries' websites, which are obviously biased.  However, based on this I am thinking about Doffo, Wiens, and Wilson Cr...

  • Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley. Funny how Dunn was ... Read More
