Wine Reviews: Mini Round-Up for March 25, 2024

The post Wine Reviews: Mini Round-Up for March 25, 2024 appeared first on 1 Wine Dude.

I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine reviews (mostly from samples) and tasting notes in a “mini-review” format.

They are meant to be quirky, fun, and (mostly) easily-digestible reviews of (mostly) currently available wines (click here for the skinny on how to read them), so you can get right to the point and decide if they’re for you (or not). Cheers!

  • 2019 Foley Family Brut (Sta. Rita Hills): Flowers, biscuits, and a veritable orchard of green, red, and yellow apples. $65 A-
  • 2012 Tom Gore Vineyards Field Blend (Alexander Valley): Still has a ton of vanilla, blackberry, and smooth moves. $35 B+
  • 2010 Ehrenberg Cellars Lodi Zinfandel (California): Flexing its muscular profile of dried figs, blackberry, pepper, and smoked meat. $28 B+
  • 2020 Rombauer Vineyards Zinfandel (California): The amazingly consistent performer, full of plummy richness and crowd-pleasing power. $38 B+
  • 2021 Bon Ton Red Wine (Napa Valley): Cherries, spices, and a bottled rollicking good time. $36 B+
  • 2021 Chimney Rock Cabernet Sauvignon (Stags Leap District): Daaaaaaang. Has it all going on, with seductive black fruit and depth now, but also great structure for a longer haul in the cellar. $115 A
  • 2021 Cameron Hughes Lot 2023 Club Selection Carignan (Alexander Valley): A surprise in all of the spicy, pleasant, tangy, and long-lived ways that define excellent examples of this oft-misunderstood grape. $30 A-
  • 2019 Cameron Hughes ‘CAM Collection’ Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley): Perky pepper spices and pleasingly push palate. $16 B+
  • 2023 Domaine Bousquet Sauvignon Blanc (Tupungato): Perky and piquant, with lots of herbs and citrus flair. $13 B
  • 2018 Domaine Bousquet Ameri Single Vineyard Red (Tupungato): A deliciously earthy, fruit-forward people-pleaser. $30 B+
