Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Beautiful scents of raspberries, vanilla on open. Uncorked are 8am and drank at 8pm and the wine had rounded out beautifully. This is a big boy wine! Berry pie, hint of leather. Plush, long finish. Amazing with prime strip steak at #elche in Chicago — 17 days ago

Trefethen Family Vineyards

Oak Knoll District Chardonnay 2017

Very nice, rounded and smooth Chardonnay. Not as creamy as the Canadian ones but very smooth and robust. Purchased from Waitrose. — 17 days ago

Oak Leaf Vineyards

California Shiraz

Not bad for how cheap it is. Not too bitter or dry. Has a bit of a funny taste, maybe vinegary or something. But overall pretty smooth and nice. — a day ago

Crosby Roamann

Cupiens Videre Lucem Oak Knoll Merlot 2011

A robust deep burgundy in the glass with a shallow rim. Blackberries and luscious dark chocolate explode initially on the nose. After plenty of air she opens up and starts to reveal leather, perfume, and a trace of oak. The floral notes last forever and are exquisite.

Ok, so is this a Cab masquerading as a Merlot like so many other Napa Valley Merlots? Thankfully no. Much softer and lush on the tongue. She’s definitely New World in style and character. There’s a nice sweetness here that never gets out of control, it’s just right. Lovely balance and structure. Nice complexity and gorgeous Oak Knoll fruit.

Smooth and round on entry, tart cherry is all over the palate. Cinnamon and smoked oak compliment well. Fresh herbs and violets steal the show. A testament to Oak Knoll and what Napa Valley Merlot can be. Just a delightful wine.

Boyd Vineyard Oak Knoll Merlot 2013

Pretty rich and intense for a Merlot. A blueberry explosion with undertones of cocoa, plums, and a hint of vanilla. Delicious now but could benefit from a bit more time in the cellar. — 17 days ago

Oak Grove

Reserve Chardonnay 2015

Great depth. I’m nice and oaky and finishes buttery smooth. — 10 days ago

Bonny's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Alder Yarrow
9.5

Aged to perfection. Brimming with cedar and bacon fat aromas, favors of forest floor and smoked meats, dried red apple skin and dashi. Beautiful acidity and a wisp of powdery tannins. Bonny FTW. Drank the rest of this press sample with our steak dinner. Check out my writeup on Bonny’s Vineyard on my web site Vinography.Com. Search for it. — 14 days ago

Perhaps a little past prime, but these two Alexes from the mid 90s are so wonderfully elegant. — 11 days ago
