Awesome Napa Cab with luscious dark fruit balanced with a hint of leather. Awesome with my Barrel Cut Filet with Collingsworth topping at Jeff Ruby's in Lexington. Yum!!! — a year ago

Love the SCM wines! Lexington was recommended by House Family Vineyards (which also has a great CabSauv). This wine had a smooth start, and a nice typical CabFranc bite finish. Very enjoyable! — 2 years ago

74% Sauvignon Blanc and 26% Semillon, 10 months in 100% French Oak (1/3 new).
Dry, Nicely balanced, loving the honey notes on top of a glimpse of pineapple. Keep up the good work Lexington! — 2 years ago
2011 Sine Qua Non Estate Grenache “Patine” from Manfred’s Eleven Confessions Vineyard. Opened this in Lexington a couple of weekends ago after about a four hour decant. Poured into a really bad wine glass in a really great hotel. Why does that always seem to be the case? Seems to be the case even in some 5 star restaurants. No? But I digress. (Apparently, I need to start traveling with my Zalto). Perfumed notes of white flowers and fresh berries. On the palate, mocha, plums and dark berry fruit turned up to 11. Notes of fresh cut herbs, spice rack and white pepper. Typical SQN endless finish. Exquisite acidity. Beautifully layered and wonderfully concentrated. This wine has an elegant, femininity about it. I’ve always sort of thought of SQN Grenache as feminine in character, I guess as opposed to Manfred’s rather muscle-bound Syrah. Although more than enjoyable now, I’ve gotta believe that it will only get better with some cellar time. — 3 years ago
Jammy fruit forward with mellowing leathery notes, bigger round mouthfeel, low acid low tannins, beautiful with seafood for dinner at The Lexington in downtown St Paul MN. — 2 years ago
