Cherry Wine Reviews

These are my most recent Cherry reviews. I drank each of these Cherry wines and this is what I think about them. My opinions about each wine are my own.

Story of Soil Duvarita Vineyard Pinot Noir

2019 Story of Soil Duvarita Vineyard Pinot Noir

A complex, red-fruit forward, slightly smoky Pinot Noir that typifies the Sta. Rita Hills appellation and showcases winemaker Jessica Gasca’s love of letting the grapes shine.

Tasting notes: red fruit, smoky, smooth, cherry, cranberry

Dani Gold Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Dani Gold Cabernet Sauvignon

Easy-drinking, well-made California Cabernet Sauvignon featuring cherry, cassis, and soft tannins. Quite enjoyable.

Tasting notes: cherry, cassis, smooth tannin

Piedrasassi Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

2017 Piedrasassi Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

There’s nothing subtle about a Moorman Syrah and the complex flavors of cherry, plum, and spice are what keep critics and wine lovers delighted.

Tasting notes: cherry, plum, spice

Michi Lorenz Sausaler Klassik Zweigelt

2020 Michi Lorenz Sausaler Klassik Zweigelt

This was not my first Zweigelt and I was excited to see it appear in this shipment. I love Pinot Noir and Zweigelt has similar characteristics, but is more acidic. It was as expected. The palate was “fruity with blackberry, cherry,” and a hint of vanilla from the oak.

Tasting notes: fruity, blackberry, cherry, vanilla, bright

Über Cab

2019 Über Cab

Made in a popular style, this Cabernet uses conventional winemaking techniques to achieve a specific flavor profile from medium-quality fruit.

Tasting notes: spice, mocha, cherry

COHO Headwaters Napa Valley Red Wine

2017 COHO Headwaters Napa Valley Red Wine

Perfect medium-bodied, Bordeaux-style red wine to enjoy with any food not requiring a high-acid companion.

Tasting notes: red fruit, cherry, blackberry

Notice: I hold no formal wine credentials. I am a wine geek who has consumed 1000+ of bottles from 100+ different wine clubs and 1000s more bottles that didn’t come from those wine clubs. I do not accept payment for wine reviews, and I do not accept payments to influence my opinions. I happily accept free wine (and I buy wine).

Why read my wine reviews: Wine taste is subjective. What I like may not be what you like. I try to leave room for you to form your own opinions, so I don’t provide a score or a rating. I do point out wines that are an incredible value or truly not worth the money. I note flaws, wines that don’t have typicity (because this matters if you are buying wine without having tasted it yourself), when wines are out of balance, and when wines lack appropriate body.

I don’t like wasting money (or anything for that matter). I’m careful about where I spend my money and my mindset as a reviewer is to be careful about where you spend yours. I don’t believe a high price tag equals quality and I know for sure there are wines of very good quality that are also a great value.
