Alvaro Palacios - Camins del Priorat
Drinking this a little past prime but still a very fruit forward, silky smooth wine, light-medium tannins, subtle complexity
Marques de Murrieta - Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial
Crazy good, totally smooth and spicy, no decant needed, just a few swirls. Rich and gamey red fruit with slightly chalky tannins. The nose is bright but the color is starting to brown. Can still age but don't think it will improve much. I loved it more 2-3 years ago. Still a wine to appreciate.
Sbragia Family - Chardonnay Gamble Ranch Vineyard
This one was a beauty a few years ago, but is past its prime. Still has toasty, buttery elements and full bodied. Tart apple, pineapple and some lemon fruit.
Cade - Sauvignon Blanc
Shame on me for not drinking these sooner. Still has life and a little acidity. Fruit is mainly lime, citrus and melon. Got two more bottles that need to go. Very well made.
Emeritus - Pinot Noir William Wesley
Had this over three nights, really opened up day 2 & 3. Richer, full-bodied mix of red cherry fruits and meatiness, along with a cola and some spice. Tannins are subtle due to age and slightly browning in color but still a very enjoyable, elegant pinot. My thought is it has another solid year, after that hard to tell.
