When the weather is like Oregon, drink like Oregon. Crushing this @illahevineyards 2016 estate #PinotNoir on an oddly cold, rainy #Sonoma evening. Love the structure to this wine: great acid, gentle tannins, hoisin & rhubarb, leafy earthiness. Getting pumped for my trip to Oregon next week.
Peter Mathis gave @sonomawinemerch and I our dose of vineyard enlightenment today. He grows and makes phenomenal #Grenache based wines up here at the edge of #MoonMountainDistrict in #Sonoma. This is shaping up to be a strong vintage... check out all those Grenache clusters about to set!
Wines and an experience that live up to the reputation - @williamsselyemwinery wowed me yesterday with their structured Pinots and surprises like a bracingly fresh Chenin Blanc. Had a blast visiting with @sonomawinemerch.
I have yet to find an #AltoAdige #PinotBlanc I don’t love. Floral, zesty citrus, green apple, and just a little creamy body. Yum.
The ground is drying out pretty quickly these days in #Sonoma. #summeriscoming
#Rosé and grilled asparagus goes together like...? Doesn’t matter. This @adcwines rosé of Pinot Noir is a face-full of watermelon jolly rancher with a crisp chalky finish! Another amazing #SonomaCounty rosé.
Stoked to be the guest pour tomorrow night @sonomawinemerch @sonomasbest! Join us for 7 of my favorite California wines and a general good time. $10 tasting, with $5 off one bottle purchase. Featuring @roedererestate @dane_cellars @maclarenwine @ibrandwinery @martinelliwinery #jonevino #mathiswine. Be there!
Enjoying my newest #porchwine @robertyoungestate’s 1st #SauvignonBlanc release. Sooo smooth and refreshing!
Winemakers like @stirmwineco rocked my palate last weekend at the @historicvineyardsociety tasting @pressclubsf. Full review up on the blog, link in bio. You don’t want to miss these wines.
Filled up my dance card with some pretty ladies today @historicvineyardsociety SF tasting. Some incredible wines from around the state with serious character. Full report to come!
#Riesling and #ThaiFood. The classic pairing wins again. And everything #feltonroad produces is a showstopper.
A few good wines thrown back this weekend. All 👍👍. @ib_dirt @grosventrewines @meereapark @robertyoungestate
