Vingiancu Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Poured a light straw color. Nose of tropical fruit. Entry of guava, melon, honey. Thicker than expected. Tame acidity doesn't really get going until the finish. Has some apples and herbs on the finish, but mostly tropical character and backbone. Should have bought more of this while I had the chance! — 5 years ago

Foglet Howell Mountain Nebbiolo 2014

Presented double-blind, the wine shows a ruby color with some rim variation. A transparent core with almost no staining of the tears; medium+ viscosity. No signs of particles or gas. On the nose, the wine is vinous. Notes of ripe red fruits: Red brambles and cherries. Some dried green herbs, dried rocky earth, and a little bit of horse blanket. There’s also some leather, and some of the fruit comes across a mix of dried and desiccated. Hmmm…quite charming. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium tannin and medium Acid. Alcohol is high. Confirming the fruit and non-fruit characteristics. The finish is long. To me, this comes across Southern Rhône like a Châteauneuf-du-Pape from a warm vintage with 10 to 15 years of age. So I called 2007. I’ll be damned. Never in a million years would I have guessed Nebbiolo from Howell Mountain, lol! While I don’t like this for Nebbiolo, there are a lot of aspects I like about the wine. Drink now. — 10 months ago

Rock Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

The only Tor Cab made under the “Rock” label, as it was the first non-Single Vineyard Cab produced. Subsequent non-SVD’s went under the Tor label. 95% Cimarossa and 5% Mast. Drinking very well right now with s beautiful Cab profile. — 5 years ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Showing some slight sign of age. Ready to drink after a 30 minute decant. Aged blackberry, saddle leather, mushroom. Tannin has softened quite a bit and have started to fall out as there was a ton of sediment on the cork. Some baked fig, roasted quality about it from start to finish. I have one more of these and will probably be opening this up sooner vs later. I am noticing that although these have holding power, the OSh wines (all of thm) and Cimarossa wines made by Capioux (03 and 04 only) don't seem to do as well as the Cimarossa wines made by Mia Klein from 05-present. — 4 years ago

Tail Feathers Rogue Valley Viognier Muscat Riesling 2017

Thanksgiving wine number 1. Sick and tired of waiting for people to show, And a great beverage in the glass while decanting the Cimarossa. Tart lemongrass, medium bodied white wine on the nose and start of the palate. Favorite of the group, as this one might have survived about 15 minutes, forcing me to open up the Hattingley a bit earlier than expected. Good acidity on this wine from start to finish. Sharp and crisp. Really enjoying these. — 5 years ago

@Shay A I picked out a case, but really only expected to open three or four bottles.... but really was not sure. It was a thirsty group today and everyone was curious for the next and the next Etc! Only 1 novice who I think was really turned on to the world of wine today. He was coming up with some very amazing descriptors. The lightbulb was going off and I think the bug bit!
