Carneros Chardonnay 2021

On the nose I was worried about the oak. But honestly? This s*#t’s delicious. I don’t have much Rombauer experience aside from hearing wine hipsters disparage it. Maybe it’s changing stylistically because this had a really cool mellow feel to it. Very silky, very stone fruit, and a graceful Werther’s without the sweetness finish. Honestly I think I just drank it too young. Like in a few years the oak is gonna meld in nicely. I recommend this with anything involving cheese. Any cheese. Cheap cheese, fancy cheese. Any cheese. I can’t stop saying cheese. Cheese. And wine. Happy Friday everyone. — 16 days ago

It never stops from year to year… consistently the same and consistently a bit different…. We did a 5 year comparison last month here and we all bowed to the Rombauers

A crisp, lemon-y chardonnay. Less oak than Rombauer. I got notes of tobacco last time I drank this but I got less of that this time around. Well-balanced. Robert Park gives this 98 points. $69.95. — 7 months ago

Napa Valley Merlot 2018

Blend of mostly Merlot with some Cab Sauv and Petit Verdot, aged 17 months in French oak (30% new), very deep Ruby with rich aromas of dark ripe fruit and sweet spice notes. On the palate flavors of black cherry, raspberry and plum with sweet vanilla spice, cacao and cedar. Fine tannins, long finish ending with balanced acidity, mineral, cacao and oak. — 20 days ago

Proprietor Selection Carneros Chardonnay 2020

Rombauer - expecting butter bomb based on prior experience. But this was completely different

Slight oak toastiness. Acidity and creaminess in great balance. A lot of depth and body. Little lime and super smooth. Just delicious through and through.

I’ve only seen the yellow and white labels this is different

Rombauer Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Blue and black fruit with green bell pepper on the nose and palate, some green olive. A bit hot, alc needs more time to burn off, medium bodied, low acidity, medium tannins. Solid. But not completely balanced.

Crisp, balanced, tasty. Probably a little oakier than the ‘18? Toastier than Rombauer. — a year ago
