@chehalemwines 2018 Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir Rosé ($25). Not surprisingly, Oregon's Willamette Valley is a prime source for lots of terrific Pinot Noir Rosé's. The 2018 from Chehalem is a tremendous example of that. Strawberry and citrus aromas are underpinned by bits of savory herbs. Light, exceedingly fresh red fruit flavors drive the palate. Bits of tangerine are evident as well. Racy acid is apparent from the first whiff to the last mouth-watering sip. A sublime Rosé for a fair price #Rosé #Pinot #Oregon #WillametteValley
Louis M. Martini 2014 Monte Rosso Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon ($85). Sitting in Sonoma Valley, Monte Rosso is one of the most legendary vineyards in California. It's been part of Martini since 1938 which in turn has been owned by Gallo since 2002. This 2014 expression is the epitome of great Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Spice driven from the first whiff to the last sip.Rasberry, cherry, and Blackberry flavors abound. Toast, pepper, cocoa, chicory and leather all represent. The finish is deep and prodigious in length with bits of pencil lead and mission fig providing a final kiss. This is an elegant expression of Cabernet Sauvignon which merits the asking price. Also available as a set ($215) with 2 specially designed @riedelusa Cab glasses produced in cooperation with winemaker Michael Eddy. #SonomaCounty #Cabernet #Wine #MonteRosso #Riedel

J. McClelland Cellars 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($45) - Just 340 6-packs were bottled of this collaboration between winemakers Mitch Cosentino and Paul Scotto.The fruit was sourced from vineyards Mitch Cosentino has long utilized. Blackberry and pencil shaving aromas lead the charge. Black Raspberry and black cherry are abundant on the full flavored but even keeled palate. The finish is long, layered, and pleasing with subtle bits of roasted coffee, black olive, and toast. If you like your Cabs proportionate and acid rich, get your hands on this. As with everything Mitch Cosentino touches, it's delicious and age-worthy. #Napa #Cab
@bodegainurrieta 2015 Roble ($14) Hailing from Navarra, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah is well suited for everyday drinking. Blackberry, spiked by bits of thyme dominate the aromatics. Velvety red and black fruit flavors are abundant, along with wisps of black pepper and graphite. There's a lot of pleasure here for $14. #blends #Wine #red #navarra.
Jason Stephens Winery 2016 Reserve Chardonnay ($30) - Hailing from the Santa Clara Valley, this is a delicious, balanced, food friendly and eminently drinkable example of Central Coast Chardonnay. Hardcore A.B.C. people beware, this wine is likely to beguile you with its proportion and charm. Oodles of lemon zest and yellow apple aromas burst forth. The palate is stuffed with more yellow fruit as well as lemon curd and gentle bits of spice. The finish is above average and layered. Bottom line: this is an excellent example of the world's most widely planted grape. #Wine #Chardonnay #CentralCoast
