North Yuba Sangiovese 1995

Classic Renaissance nose of cherries, cassis, leather and herbs. Palate is drying slightly but still incredibly elegant. Time to drink up but this wine has had quite an arc , and in its heyday was truly great. Maybe not quite at the level of @Pooneet K ‘s Monte Bello from tonite but in the conversation IMO! — 6 months ago

Sounds beautiful.

Taken From Granite

North Yuba Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Wow. Dusty, sweet, such pure deep red ripe fruit. Cooked cranberries, granite, spice, lots of energy. Palate is thrilling, palate isn’t quite as complex. A pretty sweetness on the finish but this is so fresh and tart at the same sime. Mature but nowhere near fading.

Finally a cult Cali cab I can get behind!

Amador County Mission 2018

A gift from the past becomes magic of the present, in the hands of @ownrooted. This is a pitch-perfect interpretation of Pais / Listan Prieto, the grape brought north from Mexico by Franciscan friars and planted so religiously (had to do it) at the outposts they established that it simply became known as the Mission grape. At its best, and make no mistake, this bottle is among that company, it offers bright strawberry and sour cherry fruit married to dried floral and herbal notes and shot through with electric minerality. Unbelievably refreshing and delicious. These bottle are crazy scarce, I think my annual allocation as a long time mailing list member is merely one (1), but if you can get your hands on one, it will be worth it. — 10 months ago
