2007 Porter Family Vineyards Napa Valley Syrah

Profoundly alluring and mesmerizing bouquet of earth, baking spice and English Blend tobacco recently smoked from a Dunhill pipe. A Huge wine with fascinating nuances of hearty cigarbox and black licorice with fine tuned balance that is so brilliantly arranged it is astonishing. Perfect for that rich baked sausage dish and a wonderfully refined full bodied wine that is by far one of my Top 3 Syrahs of all time!  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.


Giovanni Manzone Il Crutin Langhe 2009 Nebbiolo

Rose red hue with an enticing nose of baked cherry pie, clove and musk.  Absolutely amazed by how approachable and drinkable this wine is for being so young. Rustic flavors of lavender, clay, dark chocolate and bright red cherry seal the deal!  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

Pedroncelli Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Mother Clone 2009

Full bodied, glorious dark hued, non jammy  Zin with massive flavors of rich dark fruit, tobacco with a perfect hint of refreshing vanilla.  Great BBQ/Sirloin wine with a lengthy finish offering generous amounts of oak and a tinge of unsweetened black licorice from the 10% Petite Sirah influence;  Nice touch!   Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
