Obsidian Ridge

Obsidian Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Enjoying this, though it’s lower tannin than you might find a cab from other CA regions. Blackberry and leather on the nose that moves toward dark chocolate as it opens up. A bit earthy but some dark fruit too. Smooth and velvety, probably not going to age better from here. — a month ago

Indica Mendocino County Carignan 2019

Berry smoothie saturated with sediment particles that go down with all the might of what's pressed out of skins and stems and seeds to chew on. Big, grippy, concentrated murky stuff. And I'm definitely chewing.

Gobs of finger staining berries, woodsy accents, florals and mint and rocky minerals. Great QPR.

Hawk and Horse Vineyards

Red Hills Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Last bottle of this vintage and think it should be drunk now. It will likely last another 10 years but may not be same quality. Decanted this for 30-40 minutes and it opened up slightly. Very smooth on tannins and mellow. — 3 months ago

High Valley Zinfandel 2019

Juicy and the right amount of acid for me to keep me engaged. Cherries and plums are the prominent combo I’m getting here. — 5 months ago

Educated Guess Napa County Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Interesting enterprise to taste a 12 year old #napa #cabernetsauvignon in the value segment of the market likely around $15 - $20 at release. Cork was well soaked and wine tastes of age, but not tired at all. In fact after a day in the fridge it seems to have gained some vim. Typical bramble fruit set on top of stewed plums. Palate is a bit earthier, less fruit-forward - plenty of acidity, chocolate and coffee notes mid-palate and still sturdy tannins on the finish. It must have been stored well at the retailer. — 6 months ago


Mountain Cuvée Proprietor's Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2021

Thought I’d try my first of the 2021 Napa vintage. Nice nose of plum, ripe dark fruit. Deep dark ruby. Nice mouthfeel. Ripe blackberry, baking spices, chewy tannins, with a medium plus finish. Should be a good wine for next 5 years. Enjoyable! — 3 months ago

Very smooth, more fruit forward with the right balance of spice. Mouth feel is lighter than most cabs. Very enjoyable. — 3 months ago
