Opened to a closed nose but after just an hour it delivered an almost boysenberry nose mixed with charcoal and smoke. Extremely smooth in the mouth with abundant red and black berries, smoke, meat and juiciness balanced with just the right amount of ac...

Of course I had to open a bottle for scientific purposes.This wine marks the 5th winemaker I have tasted on this vineyard. Pax has his Wind Gap-esque touch on this wine. A sc... Read More
Very pretty garnet color with a lot of light coming through the wine in the glass. Something of a spicy (?) noseIm getting cinnamon and, maybe, clove which doesnt sound like Pinot Noir to me. Light red fruit on the tonguestrawberryand, also, a spritzy sensation on the tip of the tongue that makes me think effervescence, but there is none. Lig... Read More
It worked - I feel better.You're lucky, RCKR, that therapy never works for me. :-(That Jemrose sounds good though. Was it under $25?It was good, and I have another bottle. A couple weeks ago Last Bottle had their Marathon event where, I assume, they are cleaning out their inventory. So, every few minutes you hit "Refresh" on their site and s... Read More
Look at the Library Wines, Al. And to hell with 'on topic', OT! ;-)Know, Al, that Pax Mahle is one of the best recognized serious syrah winemakers over the past 15 years in CA. He was originally at Pax Wine Cellars which Robert Parker loved from the gitgo, but in the latter half of last decade had a falling out with his partner, a man with a mo... Read More
Had the good fortune to attend a Masters of Wine, Syrah Panel Tasting on Monday. I believe it was the last spot available for the seated tasting, consisting of 23 Syrah's from the main Syrah producing regions of the world. The tasting was held at the upstairs restaurant of the Wine House (famous retail shop and education facility) off of Cotner ... Read More
Being a fan of Jolie-Laide and being that we have been drinking a lot of whites and rosés of late I bit on this and got a Pinot Gris, 4 Rosé and 4 of the Keep as well as restocked on Belharra Rosé. Nice to get the 5% locals discount which drops the price below winery release. I like the girls at ACME. They always have new, interesting things to ... 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
Received this wine as part if a bottle swap on WB. Got a couple pours left for Wednesday but I felt like it had peaked so I wrote my notes tonight. Initial nose was meaty with pure fruit on the attack but little else. Acidity and tannins mild. Not giving up a whole lot. Day two had similar notes so I let it sit another night.Day 3 the nose turne... Read More
