Cobden Wini

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Dark ruby blue.
Earthy dark fruit clean nose.
Balanced acidity with a bit of viscosity and chalky astringent tannins on mid length finish. Good fruit and well made:)

Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Hickory, blackberry, motor oil. Needs a few more years for the tannins to totally soften and integrate.- but a beautiful wine. Well made- great style. Enjoyed. — 6 months ago

Jack Winery

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Steve Distler, owner of Arnyca, is doing consulting for a few small labels out in Napa. As I've posted before, his Arnyca cab franc is my favorite out of Napa Valley. He was the former GM at O'Brien Estate and was able to add them to his portfolio, along with Cobden Wini (winemaker for Arnyca and winemaker at O'Brien), Frias Family and Jack Winery. Killer line-up of small production stuff. We hosted him for a wine dinner and all of it was stellar.

Jack Winery utilizes the talents of Aonair winemaker Grant Long Jr. Jack was started by Vernon Wells (former MLB player) and Chris Ianetta (current MLB player). This '14 cab is from Diamond mountain and drinking well at a young age. Not as monstrous as young Howell Mountain cabs. Red and black fruit dominant with a decent amount of espresso and pepper. Needs to rest for a few years but has very good potential to be extremely good.
