Double Diamond (Schrader)

Mayacamas Range Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Dark red. Smooth and earthy at same time. Unusual combination imho. Almost no tannins left. Dark fruit. Good balance. Some musty flavors. Long finish.. 2002. Drink now. I don’t think much will be left in 5 years . — 2 years ago

Reserve Sparkling Blend 2008

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.

@jesus g was a killer host. He opened up some older sparklers to compare against new releases as well as poured some very impressive JDavies reds, including the Diamond Mtn Cab. This JSchram Reserve ‘08 though was on a different level. Honeyed almond, apricot, lemon curd. Texture and acidity were seductive at 10yrs old. Happy to have one tucked away for the foreseeable future. Legit, @jesus g !

Theorem Voir Dire is a relatively newer wine made by Thomas Rivers Brown or as some of us refer to as TRB. TRB makes or has made a number of wines which include; Chiarello, Outpost, Schrader, Aston Estate, Boars’ View, Maybach, Rivers-Marie, Seaver Vineyards, Hestan, Casa Piena, Saunter, Wallis, Black Sears, Harris Estate, Kinsella, Jones Family, Travail, Stone the Crows, Pulido-Walker, Post Parade, Riverain, Shibumi Knoll, Hobel, Revana, Ampère, 4 Winds, the Grade, Round Pond, Senses, Mending Wall, Sodhani, Vermeil, Gemstone, and QTR. TRB has made at least 25 💯 point wines in his career.

If you love a big, bold, brooding, luxurious, gorgeous, sexy Cabernet, as Val Kilmer said, in “Tombstone” “I’m your huckleberry”, (2013 Voir Dire).

Its color is dark and well extracted. The nose reveals, rich, ruby lush, fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, concentrated blueberries, black plum, plum, dark cherries and an array of purple fruits. Vanilla, cinnamon, clove, mocha powder, dark chocolate, mellow dark spice, black licorice to anise, sweet tarriness, saddle-wood, rich, dark soil, dry crushed rock powder, limestone volcanic minerals, nice subtle herbaceous notes, very dark fresh & withering dark florals, violets and lavender.

The body is big, bold lush, ruby, and deeply concentrated with big dark, tarry, sticky, well rounded, meaty tannins. The ripe, lush, rich fruits are beautiful and well extracted. The structure is big as is the tension. It has long length and beautiful balance. Ripe; blackberries, black raspberries, concentrated blueberries, black plum, plum, dark cherries and an array of purple fruits. Vanilla, cinnamon, clove, mocha powder, dark chocolate, caramel, mellow dark spice, black licorice to anise, sweet tarriness, saddle-wood, rich, dark soil, dry finely crushed rock powder, limestone volcanic minerals, nice subtle herbaceous notes with very dark fresh & withering florals, violets and lavender. The acidity is round and nicely done. The long, elegant, beautiful, richly concentrated finish is superb and it persists for minutes.

It is through
@Isaac Pirolo who has recently become their VP of Sales & Marketing, I became familiar with their wines and thank him for arranging our visit.

Schrader Cellars

RBS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

1 hour decant (decent chunky/fine sediment). A remarkable dark garnet color. On the nose: dark cherry, cedar, vanilla, wet forest floor, and some spearment. Taste: smooth, juicy, bold, layered, balanced medium plus body wine with black cherry, cedar, spice, milk chocolate and a blueberry graphite long finish with a slight tannic kick ready to go another 10 years, but drinks well with the decant. Served with dinassour steaks this Saturday night. DOUBLE YUM — 4 months ago

Francis Ford Coppola Winery

Diamond Collection Celestial Blue Label Malbec

Target, $12

Very dark color with a hint of purple. Smooth dried fruit aroma. Immediate prune/dried cherry flavor coats the mouth, it's pleasantly slightly sweet with a little smokey dryness that quickly gets replaced by a sweet anise spice note that lingers for a long while. Medium amount of tannins adds a great and necessary texture to offset the slightly sweet flavor profile. Absolutely in love with this wine, especially for the price. I got it on sale for $12 but it tastes like it's worth at least double that.

J. Davies Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Total winner. Nose is purple- I know that's not a smell but that's what it smells like. Palate shows vanilla, oak, bramble, black fruit and a little heavy cream. Almost, but not quite sweet. Good value. Double decanted over 4 hours. — 5 years ago
