Blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 4% Petite Verdot & 4% Cabernet Franc, aged for 17 months in 56% new French oak, deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits, oak and sweet spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and currants with tobacco and herb spice. Tannins are a bit chewy, long finish ending with fruit, oak, spice and herb mineral character. Nice! — 9 days ago

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2018

Tart lemon and mineral over pear. Soft French oak leave it gentle, but the acidity keeps it crisper. — 4 days ago

Penfolds

Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 2016

Definitely a new world big cab blend. Heavy but very pleasant oak. Big wine, but Syrah is a nice way to balance out the heavy tannins of cab. Would definitely buy again, though pricey. Same category as Cakebread IMO. — 2 years ago

Au Bon Climat

Santa Barbara County Chardonnay

Best chardonnay I've had in years- easily beats Cakebread, bringing a lighter overall impression without losing complexity or surrendering buttery notes. BEP selection, 4/2019. — 3 years ago
