A great tasting last week with Kelly Peterson-Holmes of Switchback Ridge. Tasted 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013 Merlot and Petite Sirah. All excellent and will age nicely over the next 5-7 years.
Attended Club Member Appreciation at Steven Kent this afternoon. They poured 2013 Merrille Chardonnay, 2012 Livermore Cab Sauv, 2012 BDX Petit Verdot and 2013 Port. Plus Steven Mirassou was wondering about pouring some nice 2006 Clone 30. The two best were Chardonnay and Clone 30. Then stopped by Dante Robere Vineyards. Met Dan Rosenberg 4 years ago and great to see him at his new facility. His dream has come to fruition. Their Cab Sauv, Syrah and Tempranillo (to be released in January) were the standout wines for me. Worth stopping by for a tasting.
