Estate Bottled Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This is an Interesting Cabernet from Spring Mountain.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing black fruits with cedar, earth, vanilla, spices, vegetables, bitter herbs, green pepper, tobacco leaf, coffee and black pepper.

This Napa Cabernet is still young, and shows lots of earthy notes. Feels like a left bank Bordeaux. The Cabernet franc is very dominant right now.

A good sipping wine with good structure and a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.

Nicely balanced and good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.

High Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

1st vintage of a new luxury tier from Clay Shannon, a Lake County Cab. Deep Ruby with aromas of dried red fruits, espresso, cedar and sweet floral notes, aged in French oak. On the palate flavors of ripe raspberry, blackberry and ripe black cherry with notes of cacao, vanilla and dried floral herbs. Fine rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, cacao, spice and earthy mineral notes. Nice but good to wait a few years on this beauty. — 7 days ago

I think their Howell Mountain bottling is the moodiest wine I’ve ever had vintage after vintage. When it’s on, it’s too good to pass up so I buy it every year 😆

Coeur de Vallée Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Shay A
9.5

After visiting here last Fall, and leaving with more wine than any other visit (mostly due to their incredible white wines), this has been a fun wine to follow. This is my second to enjoy, and I think I have one left. For a 2014, this was pretty tightly coiled.

76 cab/24 cab franc. Love those percentages, especially from To Kalon. It certainly sports the classical powerful To Kalon flair with dominant black cherry and plenty of fragrant aromatics of violets and potpourri. Even after a few hours of bottle air, this remained tannic and slightly unyielding (very uncommon for 2014 valley floor Napa). At the end of the evening, it gave way to sweet pipe tobacco, black currant, dark spiced red fruits, and savory herbs. Hard to deny the powerful black cherry core that To Kalon normally sports. I’d hold for another 5yrs or decant 3+ hrs.
