Review a new wine!
  2007 - Alfred, Domaine Chardonnay Chamisal Vineyard
 Jul 10, 2009

1 star 1 star 1 star

 Classic California Chardonnay nose of toasty oak, vanilla, butterscotch, and pastry crust with some meyer lemon custard and orange zest. Big wine up front with good concentration, medium acidity, and abundant oak. Nice finish with copious amounts of citrus and a subtle leesiness

  2006 - Rudius Syrah Alder Springs West Block
 Jun 30, 2009

1 star 1 star 1 star

 Deep dark ruby core with a dull red rim. Aromas of saddle leather, all-spice, and cardamom followed by dark cherry, chocolate, and citrus zest. Earthy on the mid-palate with some truffle, candied red fruits, and dried herbs. Medium finish
