2009 Bedrock Rebecca's Vineyard Pinot Noir. On day one, this was muscled up and ripe, a little bit hot, and tasted of black cherry and caramel. Not what I expected from the first Morgan Twain-Peterson pinot I've tried, especially after almost a decade. On day two, it had settled down a bit, seemed to lose much of the apparent heat, and revealed more RRV pinot character. This was interesting.

Nice note on what definitely sounds like an interesting wine my man! I'm not a huge pinot guy so I never scooped this one up, or that late release of Morgans first pinot he ever made (vino bambino I think). Would be fun to try those 2 together though.

LOVED this! Such a treat - perfectly in balance and absolutely delicious! Next time Morgan offers Carignan, I am loading up.

A couple 2016 north coast Syrahs, one slightly corked but the other was just fantastic and what a steal for $20.

Awesome Sherri, really appreciate the 2012 Carignane update! I opened one near release and it was tough as nails, will need to grab one for sometime early 2019.

Earlier in the week:

2014 Judge Saugvignon Blanc was an oxidized mess.....completely shot.

But the 13 Compagni Portis that replaced it is gorgeous....citrus, floral with a crisp acidity. Perfect with some crab cakes.

Served up the 2011 Weill Syrah Exposition series last night at a family dinner. It was an interesting experience. The #1 (100% syrah, 100% whole cluster) had a slightly smokey note to it along with some spice. The #2 & #3 (8% & 16% viognier, respectively) were definitely more aromatic. In general, nothing to get too excited about. Looking forward to trying the 2012's and 2013's.

2012 Zinfandel Sodini Vineyard

Absolutely fantastic, one of the best Zins I've had year, full of all the RRV Zin-richness you'd expect but also far more nuanced than typical w/surprising finesse. The aromas just filled the room soon as the cork was removed, reminded me of the 2012 Kirschenmann in that regard. As they have been all year, these 2012s are really singing right now, even the Syrahs!

Niiiiice man! Sadly drank my last one earlier this year. Hard to keep my hands off the 12's as they're drinking so well. Prime time for sure.
