Alder Spring Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Still trying to figure this one out. Achingly young of course. Pop and pour: is this Mourvèdre? A slight funk and dark fruit with an almost effervescant and sprightly tone. This is definitely a @Hardy Wallace wine. After a few hours this is noticeably more tannic on the back end with some cassis fruit and a touch of cedar emerging but still a relatively light body. An hour later this blooms with pencil shaving and clear cassis that makes me think of a young St. Julien, but on the rustic side. Will be interesting to see where this goes over the next decade or two. Kind of excited that @Hardy Wallace is able to create such a fascinating representation of good cru bordeaux in Northern California. Very different in style from Calluna, but that's a representation of the breadth of Bdx maybe. And on an unrelated note, #letsgopens! Sorry @Berg — 5 years ago

Stellar example of a Bordeaux-style red blend made in the Bordeaux style, with balanced fruit, oak, and tannins. — 9 years ago

Chalk Hill Merlot 2010

Graphite, red fruit, cassis, slight menthol, no detectable oak. Seems fairly extracted, with a rich mouthfeel but not a touch of RS. Elegant overall, but enough dusty tannins on the finish that I really hesitate to open any more for a few years. This is old school in style. — 5 years ago
