Ridge Vineyards

Mancini Ranch Carignane Zinfandel 2019

Absolutely delicious. The 27% Zin makes itself noticed on the nose, which has the telltale brambly blackberry competing with the deep red berries of the Carignane. And there’s a bit of the signature Ridge American oak adding a vanilla/smoky note on top of a little gravel. Texturally soft and mouthfilling, it’s ripe but in beautiful balance. Tangy acids from the Carignane. A bit of tannin, but it’s very soft. I don’t see this as a long ager, but really nice now. The finish is a little short, but that’s common in my view with Carignane, which tend to give a significant initial whack of flavor and then dissipates quickly. — 10 days ago

Jamieson Ranch Vineyards

Double Lariat Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Pop n pour.
Sweet nose of cherrycoke and caramel macchiato.
On the palate the cherries and vanilla prevail. Medium bodied, some acidic freshness in the midpalate. Tannines? No sir. This is smooth and silky.
Quite simple, bordering on monolithic, yet tasty and delicious.

Abreu Vineyards

Madrona Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

1 hour decant (lots of chunky/fine sediment). A stunning still dark ruby red with some purple hues. On the nose: blackberry, rich potting soil, slight menthol, little green veggie and black olives, floral. Taste: smooth wine, silky tannins coat the mouth with some dark cherries, bitter chocolate, soy sauce, pepper, and a metallic cedar dry finish. Seems like it should be drunk sooner than later, but holding its own at 20 years. — 9 days ago
