“A wine tasting experience we'll never forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We loved the wines from our first sips, but the experience was "made" by our time spent with Amanda, the pourer, Dave, the winemaker, and Dirk, the grill master. They were so down-to-earth and open - no snobbery or disdain for tourists. They laughed with us and shared stories, and were not in a rush for us to leave. I think there is a quote that goes something like ...from wine what sudden friendship springs... Thank you for the wonderful welcome to Sonoma!

“Great Wine Tasting in Dowtown Healdsburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

There are a number of great wine tasting rooms in Healdsburg, but Murphy Goode is one of the best. I came specifically to try these wines because of recommendations from friends and they certainly lived up to my expectations. Located in downtown Healdsburg, this is a convenient place to stop and try some great wine. Here are some observations:
2010 Dealer's Choice Cab: wonderful balance, blackberry and not too heavy on the tannins
2012 Island Block Chardonnay: nice and delightfully dry, aged in French Oak barrels
2006 Poker Knight Cab: a little more body than Dealer's Choice
2010 Liar's Dice Zinfandel: rich and delicious, full fruit flavors and great finish
2006 Terre a Lago Cabernet: single vineyard, earthy and full-bodied. This is a huge wine!

I found Murphy Goode wines to have some of the best value in the region and have already shipped several cases back home.
