2012 Poe "Ferrington Vineyard" Chardonnay. A delicious, savory, briny middle aged Chardonnay. This was simply delicious-an Anti-Rombauer if you will.

2013 Preston Family Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Estate wine, but not "old vines". An extremely "juicy" Zinfandel. definitely some plush, round Zinfandel fruit, but with surprising acid balance and some herbal notes. Primal and primary. Not dying at all. delicious with beef ribs.

2013 Laurel Glen Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Delicious herbal and anise Cabernet fruit, but way too young. Slightly discombobulated at this point. Will hold remaining bottle.
