  • Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc 2011


    Cut grass, passion fruit and a little grapefruit come together on the nose with some poblano and gooseberry top notes. Rich, quite ripe and large scaled with big grapefruit and light passion fruits in the mouth. Zesty acids, good length and nice, pithy though sweet juicy citrus flavors. 86pts Read More

  • Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Section 94 Single Vineyard 2010


    Very complex on the nose with notes of smoky flint, dried chili, roast chili, a hint of sulfur, and more vegetal notes. A bit of green bean, green pea. This is a very broad and soft vintage for Section 94, lacking some of the firmness of previous vintages but making up for it with a round, almost lush mouth-feel. The flavors here are mostly orch...

  • Dog Point Chardonnay Marlborough 2010


    This smells of barrel ferment, tight and rich with a little butter and toasty notes of almond, all over rather fresh fruit. Very clear, tense even, with a lovely gentle, layered character. This is super vibrant and clear, with a touch of honied quality and floral notes over ripe citron/citrus fruits. Theres a smoky overlay on the finish, which s... Read More

  • I am finally catching up on compiliing my notes and reviews from this whole year.  A good friend of mine asked me, as he picked me up on New Year's Eve from the airport as I was returning from Napa, if I wanted to go to Sonoma in February.  He was planning to kidnap his girlfriend (another good friend of mine) for her birthday over Valentine's w...

  • My neighbors and I have a mutual love of wine, and have had several tasting parties which we've enjoyed a lot.  We did a blind one, and a non-blind one of very different world varieties.  We usually get bottles in about the 20-30 range, although that's flexible, especially going lower for the blind tasting.For this next one, I was thinking of do...
