Black Ankle - Syrah Leaf-Stone
Doesn't barrel you over with alcohol and oak. A nice domestic Syrah with some balance and elegance.
Baumelles - Rose
Not very good. Smelled like a nose Rose but then had a bad finish, like the acidity was way off. Didn't finish my glass.
Philip Togni - Cabernet Sauvignon Tanbark Hill Vineyard
Color was a dark brick red. Togni bottles his wines unfiltered, and it shows. Pop and pour: There's a nice color complexity that you don't see from filtered wines. The wine smelled like olive, menthol and even a little floral. Palette has cherry, oak, a thick and coating wine. Long solid finish. After one hour decant the wine was much bigger up front, both on the nose and palette. There was a lot more finesse in the wine as it delivered up front, in the middle, and on the finish. Much improved.
