3 Horse Ranch Vineyards

Vine Hill Ranch

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This wine rocks. Gripping wine.

Raspberry and some black fruits. Very dense and structured.

Held up well with heavy Italian food

Softening with airtime. Around 3 hour mark - provides some interesting elegance with drying tannins.

A winner for the birthday queen

Red Hills Lake County Petite Sirah 2017

This is a very tasty Petite Sirah from Lake County in California.

Dry and fruity on the palate with medium acidity.

Medium plus in body with a nice, soft mouth feel.

Showing blueberries, black cherries, black currants, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, chocolates, light graphite and peppercorn.

Nice finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 4 year old is already drinking very nicely with nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 45 minutes of airtime.

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

Nicely balanced and fruit forward. Easy drinking and elegant.

A small production of only 150 cases.

14.1% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Bedrock Wine Co.

Papera Ranch Heritage Russian River Valley Red Blend 2014

Never know what I’m going to get when I open a Bedrock. This one seems to be okay with some blackberries, licorice, brambles and such, not overly complex but good. Opened and decanted about an hour before dinner and seemed to be the same from start to about 3 hours later. — a month ago

Scottie you are doing your job!!! This was an excellent decision. Fruit forward but not heavy.

Nickel & Nickel

State Ranch Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This wine has aged very gracefully. Did not decant but allowed to open in glass as we slow drank the bottle over 3-4 hours. Dark, full, dry, smooth. Outstanding! — 2 years ago

Champoux Vineyard Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Very dark rubi robe, nose of lead pencil, dark fruits, cedar and spices. Very elegant complex, but also bold and concentrated Bordeaux blend. Should be much better in 3 to 5 years. — 6 months ago

Dark Horse Ranch Grenache 2016

I’m a sucker for great Grenache. If it can age all the better. Boozy raisins and blueberries. — 2 years ago

Keefer Ranch Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2011

Going strong. My notes from 3 months ago still apply. Age has brought out nothing but goodness. And I’d venture there are a few more years left in it. No point in waiting though. — 3 years ago
