Crocker & Starr


Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Sharing a birthday dinner with family. Ringo Starr said he couldn’t make it. PNP and wasn’t that tight. Could have used some air but the nose and palate were just great. — 2 years ago

Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

What an incredible second day here in Napa. Jesus started us off with an amazing tasting at Davies/Schramsberg, Crocker & Starr gave us our cab franc fix, Montagu & Addax put on a double tasting, and Hourglass knocked it out of the park at the end of the day! I won’t post each wine we tasted, but I’ll highlight the best from each spot.

Without a doubt the highlight of the Addax & Montagu Tasting. This ‘15 Tench Cabernet has winemaker Russell Bevan all over it. More of an iron fist in a velvet glove than I found the ‘14 to be. Red, black and blue fruits on the nose but the weight showed so much structure and word to use here is plush. The fruit was so incredibly soft alongside the smoke, mint, and cassis. The new Addax Ritchie Chardonnay was tasted against Montagu’s Ritchie Chardonnay and it was a tie. 👌

Starr Ridge Chard (didn’t find on the Delectable list). Not much of a chard person, but seem to be drinking lately. Have more than a few in my cellar and I’m keeping an open mind and pallet. I’ve actually been pretty happy. — 4 years ago

Starr Ranch Reserve Syrah 2010

Aggressive and spicy, even for a wine that's spent almost 10 years in the bottle. A whopping 17.5% alcohol is actually well contained within brambly fruit, earth and mineral notes, and a hint of smoke and meat. Minimal sediment and a pleasant brick color also show through. — 5 years ago
