Estate Bottled Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

It's time to drink a Cabernet on this #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nice one from Paso Robles.

Deep purple in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, black plums, black currants, light cedar, licorice, vanilla, spices, tobacco, black pepper, dark chocolates and herbs.

Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, oak, tobacco, licorice, light vanilla, herbs, coffee, light alcohol, peppercorn, light earth and chocolates.

Nice finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel. I always enjoy these Bordeaux blends. A good sipping wine too.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 45 minutes of air time, when tannins show up and bring in more structure to the wine.

Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years and see how it evolved.

Good by itself or with food. Will pair wonderfully with BBQ Meats.

A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. Aged for 16 months in (30% new) French Oak barrels.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$55.

Gargiulo Vineyards

Money Road Ranch Merlot 2014

A 93 now with upside potential. Probably should have left this alone for 2-3 years even after a 30 minute decant. Dirty raspberry pie and black cherry marmelade. Rather sweet open. Herbal middle. Finishes a little off balance but still very full bodied and grippy. Mostly dirty red fruit dominated. Really good but I can imagine how complex this will be in about 5 years. HOLD these. — 3 years ago

Trione Vineyards & Winery

Home Ranch Estate Bottled Primitivo Blend 2012

May 4, 2019. Schools almost out party wine number 3. Another winner from Trione. Deep red, purple. Not at all like Merlot, IMHO. SO much better. Wine club offering March 2015. Big deep red fruit w/ some earthiness. Enjoyed w/ friend, just as Trione family recommends. 🥳 — 3 years ago

Gargiulo Vineyards

Money Road Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon

Wow! This is a great wine at a smaller vineyard. A must try! I joined their wine club after having this at a steak restaurant. Can’t buy locally. Very friendly people at winery. I have order this for 3 years now & it keeps getting better with every year. This should be priced much higher than they sell this brand. A very bold, dense Cabernet. A must try! You won’t be disappointed. — 2 years ago

Lewelling Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

9.3

A few fun bottles from last Friday.

My thanks to
@Mark Flesher for opening this as I have a visit lined up with Hayfork and Lewelling during my Napa trip in 3 weeks. I was surprised at how dense and chewy this was! So much to unpack here. I’d say this is fruit forward without being flabby or over the top. Aromatically there is baked mixed berry pie, dark plum, Mexican vanilla and baking spices. Large and in charge on the palate showing roasted dark fruits, dusty herbs, and chewy tannins at the finish. I think this is still evolving, but very enjoyable now.

Pleasant Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Donald Patz
9.0

A BTG offering at Angèle and what a delight. Pleasant Hill - aka JENKINS RANCH - is a proven Pinot Noir site in the as yet unofficial “Sebastopol Hills” area of Russian River Valley AVA. 2014 with 3-4 years of bottle time is bridging youthful juiciness with a flicker of aged character. Nice work — 3 years ago
