Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Always good, unfortunately my last bottle. 9 years ago I first tasted this wine, and it was one of the first bottles of wine I had ever had where I went wow, this is good wine. And here we are today… — 20 days ago

Brut Réserve Grand Cru Champagne Blend

This delicious sparkler is bursting with citrus, toast, crème, and fresh mountain pebbles. As the official champagne of Porche, this bubbly is good around the clock at Les Mans. — 8 years ago

Grand Cru!

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

2017 vintage. Pretty solid stuff. Medium-medium heavy body. Dryer than your average Napa bear and tastes more like mountain slope fruit but don’t think it is. Underrated potential and QPR pop. This should be dynamite in a decade. — a year ago

Howell Mountain Peloursin Rosé 2016

Greg Ballington

Medium magenta pink. Rather stinky on the attack of the nose with some dirty rocks and opened up with some ripe red berries. Medium acidity (6/10) and medium plus body. Great structure and balance on the palate. Even seemed a bit lively (bubbly) in texture. Layers of strawberries, melon and watermelon. Long finish. Quite a big Rosé, excellent work Mike! Drink till 2022. | Sample — 6 years ago

Still a grippy lil mother. Must have been a bear young. I'm a huge fan, lovely lanolin cigar box, fruit-leather with heaps of tarragon on the pallet. Great acid. Love it! — 7 years ago

Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Monthly WTF wine group night. Our theme was American oak vs French oak. All wines tasted blind. We started off with two bottles of bubbly and finished with two non-themed reds.

Similar experience to last having this eight or so months ago. Rich and powerful without being out of balance. Inky blue and black fruits, sweet oak and vanilla tobacco on the nose. The palate here was expansive and a bit wild (in a good way)...signature mountain structure, dusty youthfulness in the ripe fruits. Dark chocolate & plum on the finish. Delicious now but probably better in a few years!

@Ara Aslanian : Living in Fort Worth helps! If you are ever this way on the second Tuesday of each month, WTF will have a spot open for you!

@Severn Goodwin : Yes, especially the bigger style mountain cabs. Just so delicious!

@James Cahill : We all really enjoyed it and found it to be quite educational.

I remember thinking this one was quite young. However, definitely has it all together but I feel that this one needs another five years before starting to express some of its complexities that it is most certainly capable of expressing and it's older age. Very stiff tannic finish but oh man what a blackberry punch on the front! This one isn't going anywhere for the next 20 years.
