Carneros District Chardonnay 2018

Ron R

At less than $30, this is a definite buy.
It’s not extravagant, but similar in style and presence to the Hartford. Soft, round, full and dense with moderate sweetness, and light acidity. Not for the long haul, but an excellent value. Tamarind, NYC.

Napa Valley Merlot

Silky smooth cherry with hints of currant. Almost had a Bordeaux gym-shoe taste that takes this wine to another level. 2006 vintage was marvelous. — 5 years ago

I guess everyone needs Bruce to enlighten path to Beaujolais. At least that's what my ex said :-)

Chuy's Vineyard Chardonnay

A nice middle-ground between California and Burgundy. Mild and well integrated oak, kumquat, lite-medium body with a bit of the butteriness of CA chardonnay, and a long clean finish of citrus rind, peach cobbler/peach nutmeg, and earthiness. Will seek this wine again! — 5 years ago

Salvestrin Estate Vineyard St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

I found a house in St Helena last week and will be moving there at the end of May. I thought I should get acquainted with the neighbors. What better way than a face off?
Neyers Vineyards 2011 Neyers Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon vs Salvestrin Winery 2013 Salvestrin Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.
Neyers Ranch is situated in the hills of Conn Valley just east of St Helena, with elevations ranging from 400’ to 1200’ on a south-facing, 50-acre parcel bisected by Conn Creek. Since 1998 Neyers has sustainably farmed this vineyard. Winemaker Tadeo Borchardt started in 2004 as assistant to then winemaker Ehren Jordan.
This Neyers was highlighted as one of the best of Napa’s 2011s in Jon Bonné’s piece for the SF Chronicle “Lessons from Napa in the trickiest of years” saying it “finds that great Cabernet balance of sleekness and dense flavor” with “pitch-perfect expression” and an “oregano-like herbal side frames its meaty structure and subtle blackcurrant fruit.”
Since 1932, three generations of Salvestrins have sustainable farmed their vineyard which was originally planted in 1860 by Dr. George Crane. It’s situated immediately south of St Helena High School and along Main St (Hwy 29), surrounding the family winery. Rich Salvestrin farms the vineyard and makes the wine, and his wife Shannon handles the sales and marketing, while they both raise the 4th generation on their farm.
Robert Parker gushed over the 2013, as “lusty, savory, hedonistic, rich and mouth-filling, with a dense purple color and not a hard edge in sight.” His praise did not stop there, saying that this “blockbuster fruit bomb has complexity, richness and a savory intensity that has to be tasted to be believed.”
The vintages were so different that it’s difficult to weigh them against each other. Bonné is definitely on point calling the Neyers one of the best examples of 2011 Napa Cabernet. Savory, with rich aromatics of Mexican cocoa powder and mole sauce, reminiscent of Corison’s 2011. To Parker’s credit, the Salvestrin is definitely a blockbuster and a hedonistic fruit bomb, but the savoriness, complexity, and length tone down its showiness, and add a level of decorum that sets it apart.
