V Madrone

St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

This 13 year old Cabernet Sauvignon was amazing. Full body with plenty of fruit and so amazingly soft. We decanted this bottle about an hour before serving it with a nicely seasoned and grilled sirloin steak with a little soy sauce. Former V Madrone wine club member that is so glad to have waited many years to open this bottle. — 15 days ago

Spring Mountain District Chardonnay 2018

Dark golden in color.

Nice nose of yellow apples, pears, light honey, spices, cedar, citrus, light vanilla and pineapples.

Full bodied and creamy with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, apples, limes, earth, minerals, white pepper and sea salt.

Tangy finish with limes.

This 5-year-old Chardonnay from Napa Valley is drinking very nicely now. Easy drinking and enjoyable. Showing nice complexity at this point.

Nicely balanced and well structured. A good quality wine that will continue to age nicely in the next 3 to 5 years.

Needs 20 minutes of airtime to come to its own.

Good by itself as a sipping wine. Tangy and interesting.

100% Chardonnay grapes from Spring Mountain District were aged in (55% new) French Oak barrels for 9 months.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Great fragrance and brightly flavored like citrus that feels buttery rich on the tongue - really good with a summer picnic to beat the heat! — 2 months ago

Spring Mountain District Riesling 2018

Lovely stone fruit, minerals in the middle and a dry finish. Unusual to get a Reisling from Napa, but this is nicely done. — 3 months ago

Estate Bottled Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose blueberries, black plums, black cherries, earth, oak, licorice, eucalyptus, spices, herbs, dark coffee and light black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, oak, licorice, earth, spices, dark chocolates, tobacco leaf, herbs and peppercorn.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and raspberries.

This 4 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is still young, but starting to drink very nicely now. Shows nice complexity and smooth.

Definitely not the extracted Napa cab Style. Feels more like a Left Bank Bordeaux. Nice to see that coming from Napa.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Good by itself or with food. A nice wine to pair with a nice piece of steak. Paired nicely with aged Gorgonzola cheese from France.

A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

91 points.
