A wonderful Syrah from an under-appreciated region. Deep black and blue fruits on the nose along with clove, black pepper and smoke. The palate is concentrated with some nice earthy notes coming through with blackberry pie and pencil lead.

Fairly dark purple in the glass. Fruit/berry heavy on the nose. Really not over-the-top fruit on entrysome blackberry, some suggestion of lemon in the background. Certainly not fruity sweet. Sufficient acid to give it a good backbone. Im not normally a Grenache guy, but I like this one. Read More
Last night we drank a Lafond Syrah SRH from (duh!) the Santa Rita HIlls. A colleague brought it back from Santa Barbara, where the winery has a tasting room; she does that for me whenever she's down there because she's a great colleague and knows I like the wine. She also got two bottles of Oregon PN in appreciation. This is a seriously good ... Read More
Here's the funny thing: For just a minute, Napa Ridge Cab was made from grapes from Napa Valley. So that added to the confusion. Franzia sometimes bought up labels that had some history or a reputation. (His company is called Bronco, because the Franzia name was bought by Coca Cola and sold to The Wine Group. So there's lots of history and ... Read More
Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion. Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising. First - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free. Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label. Well, this 2014 Me... Read More
We finally got the news that we are approved for our planning permit. Now comes the really trying part: building permits, contractors' estimates, dislocation, refinancing, and dealing with the neighbor who tried to stop the project and who will harass the contractor. But it's official: I get a basement with room for a real cellar with temper... Read More

I'm on Day 2 with this wine. On Day 1 I found it to be angular and lean--almost watery. There were some stone fruit flavors on the tip of the tongue, but the overwhelming mouth sensation was drying tannins and bitterness from mid- ot rear-palate. Today the wine is a bit more round, but, still not much fruit. This wine is pretty highly regard... Read More

The ride to STS is 2hr 15min. $34 per adult... Read More
Hi all!Hoping to wade into interesting wine talk (and food talk). Me, I've been seriously enjoying and exploring wine for just over 20 years. On the red side, right now I'm partial to wines from Spain and the Rhone valley, but other loves are Oregon pinots, really good Italian wines (yes, it's endless, but that's the fun), and wanting to try mu...

Last week, outthere posted a nice one about some newer wineries that received props in Antonio Galloni's article about new California wineries.I had made plans with OT to meet up at Mike Smith's joint, the Carter winery, where he makes his own Myriad wines. I had a half case of Myriad waiting for pickup and we were bringing my wife's new execut... Read More
