2007 Schramsberg - Brut Anderson Valley
Schramsberg does a great job with their sparkling wines. This Anderson valley sparkler is another example of what can be done. Medium toast, nice bubbles, soft apple and pear notes. This will continue getting better. Lovely.

2011 Quilceda Creek - Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley
First encounter with Quilceda Creek. The 2011 showed very well, not a rough edge to be found. Nicely complex, showing very youthful character of sweet cherry, blueberry, and cedar. A touch of leather and wet stone on the lengthy finish. Very nice wine, looking forward to trying it in a few years

2004 Turnbull - Toroso
Turnbull continues to impress and the 2004 Toroso is a winner. Mostly sangioveses it is a mix of new world and old world with earthy notes mixed in with dark berries and glycerin. Some oak notes flirt in the background. No hard edges to be found and was drinking great after 10 years in the cellar.

2004 Turley - Zinfandel Old Vines
cherry cola, briar patch, and some syrah like nuances. Well balanced, not overly hot and smooth finish for a 10 year old zin. Had over three nights and it was still going strong.

2001 Schramsberg - Reserve
I have never given a 100 point score prior to this and specifically to a sparkling wine. I have tried all the top tier champagnes including 100 pt vintages of cristal, dom, and krug. This 2001 Schramsberg Reserve is one for the record books. Perfectly formed nose of sweet apple and cherry blossoms give way to a stunning balance of toast, nutty, and caramel apple. Gold in color, and showing very slight age, this sparkling wine represents everything I look for and I only wish I had more. Had multiple bottles in the past two years. All consistent - 100!
