Wine notes | Search | Blog

Welcome to the wine notes page. The idea here is very simple. We have over 5000 ratings in our wine tasting database that we'd like to share with anyone who might find these opinions useful. The number of ratings grows weekly.

Our primary focus is on the wineries of the Sacramento region. We spend our time tasting in Lodi, Amador County, El Dorado County, the valley and the Gold Country. Of course, we attend the weekly tastings at BevMo as well, so we get a good selection of California and world-wide wines in our database as well.

Below you'll find a list of our 20 most recent ratings. But to search the whole database for what you're looking for please visit the search page. We have a total of 7028 wines in our database currently.

AviatrixSanta Ynez2020Grenache937/11/2024Blackberry, raspberry, cherry, buttermilk, cheese cake, white pepper, phreesia. The palate holds a lovely, ripe tannins, firm acidity, full body and concentrated flavors. My friend and I visited La Sirena today. David, our host, was one of the best hosts weve ever had. He understood that we were industry and just treated us like pals. He gave us a ton of history on Bo, Heidi and Chelsea Barrett. Aviatrix is a hat-tip to Heidis ability to fly aircraft. The wine is thick, lovely, nuanced, spicy and worth every bit of the $40 bucks at which it is priced.y
