Central Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Smith & Hook

Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Leggy. Deep ruby color. Dark cherry, vanilla, currant, and maybe plum on the nose. Leads with lots of medium to dark fruit, then balances with medium tannin at the finish. Really lovely; and this wine is begging for a spicy meat. Note: The more air you give it, the deeper/more complex the fruit. Give it 45 minutes before your first pour. — 7 days ago

@Mike R it may mellow out in a few years.. but this didn’t have the grace and sophistication I was hoping for!

Diamond Collection Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Okay. This is Francis Coppola Diamond Collection 2019 paso robles!!!!! Bingo. Lavendar and wildflowers on the bouquet. No tartness at all!!!!!!! As you know most affordable Cabs these days from Cali are drinking very tart. Not this one. Blackberry, black cherry, dark currant leads the tastebuds to a dark chocolate mocha and oaky beginning. This is followed by an immediate sensation of fresh blackberry pie with a very dry finish.  there is something else that I cant put my finger on. It has hints of dark soil and earthy graphite somewhere in there moving back-and-forth into the palate. I’m craving a drink of water right now but I’ll tell you this I’m having another drink first.  I suggest you get a bottle of this diamond collection and see what you think the complexity is very nice.  got it... cigars and English pipe tobacco !!!

100% Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a playful wine!!! I love the first day of oak and bold tannins-great with strong cheeses, spicy meats. Next day, a nice balance of dark berries, leather and tannins. 3 red Day, luscious berries with a vanilla finish-great with mild cheese and crackers, fruits and light meats. — a month ago

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Last of my bottles. This has a profile that seems to allow for early drinking, and the tannin and acidity here don’t make me regret finishing these (though I’m sure this will be just fine for 5+yrs in this type of profile).

Between a 92-93 here. One of my bottles poured for a big Paso theme (2010 Epoch Block B, 2015 Torrin Akashi, 2012 Saxum JBV, and others), this was close to pop and pour. When I first had this two years ago, it had a reductive/smoked meat profile on the nose that has disappated. Aromatics show lots of black cherry, black raspberries, amaretto, baking spices and espresso. Quite perfumed. The palate is juicy and lush, with more high toned black fruits, cedar, a roasted character and a lip smacking jamminess on the finish. Unabashedly Paso.

As an aside, it’s crazy how these can be found around $50 now after Constellation bought this label out...I paid $75! Good value at $50, not so good at $75.
