Introduction

Gundlach Bundschu Gewurztraminer 2015

Wine Enthusiast –
“An entirely varietal wine, aged in a majority of stainless steel, this smoothly textured experience begins in peach and apricot with balanced acidity, dry as a bone. It entices with rounded creaminess and inviting floral and lemon highlights.” 92 Points – Wine Enthusiast

Gypsy Boots Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2011

This 2011 Pinot Noir opens with complex aromas of cola, beets, chocolate and rhubarb. A soft, silky entry leads to complex layers of mocha, barrel spice and deep, dark cherry flavors. This is a well-structured wine with full extraction of beautiful Pinot Noir flavors. Food pairing suggestions: all things duck!

Benziger Tribute Red Blend 2011

Palatial fruit aromas of cranberry and boysenberry welcome the first sip; secondary aromas of rose petals, thyme, tar, black tea engage the palate. This wine has an interesting and gentle quality about it. Berry and spice flavors enter softly with a round and welcoming entry. The mid-palate is full with silk-like textures.

Dry Creek Old Vine Zinfandel 2012

Wine Enthusiast
“Blended with 19% Petite Sirah and 3% Carignane, from vines averaging 50-plus-years of age, this is a bold and brambly wine, laced in elegance. Coffee, leather and a taste of caramel are seasoned in allspice and black pepper, as persistent, sinewy tannins provide weight and heft.” 92 Points – Wine Enthusiast

Ridge Lytton Estate Petite Sirah 2013
Vinous

The 2013 Petite Sirah Lytton Estate is oddly enough quite civilized and even a touch tame by Petite standards. There is plenty of inky blue/black-fleshed fruit but the tannins are surprisingly soft. Game, smoke and a hint of tobacco add nuance through the mid-palate and finish. The 2013 is a beautiful wine, but readers expecting a full-on Petite experience might be slightly disappointed, as this is an especially tamed Petite with varietal character that has largely been subdued.
Score: 93, Antonio Galloni
