Smith Madrone

Spring Mountain District Chardonnay 2017


Funny story. I took this bottle in my luggage to Florida. Bubble wrapped the heck out of it and it still broke. Lesson learned. Reminds me of some the middle to late 90 Burgundies that I have had but this is only 5-6 years old. Not sure how much life it has left but it’s good now. — 3 months ago

Fuller's London Pride Outstanding Premium English Pale Ale


Classic stuff, probably been brewing this same recipe for centuries. Smells & tastes like it would be heavy, but it goes down easy and is surprisingly light on its feet. Lightly malty, no frills old school Ale — 2 months ago

Smith Madrone

Estate Bottled Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2003


Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish/ brick rim.

Beautiful nose of black fruits, cedar, chocolates, herbs, tobacco leaf and cola.

Full-bodied and elegant with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, mint, vanilla, spices, licorice, espresso, cola, light herbs, eucalyptus, light earth, tobacco leaf, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 20 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is drinking beautifully now. Showing a gorgeous nose, that I kept on smelling for a while.

Feels much younger than it actually is, complex and well balanced.

Good right out of the bottle with grippy tannins, and better after a couple of hours in the decanter.

Peaking now and good by itself or with food. Will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.

A gorgeous wine. I love these older Napa Bordeaux blends.

A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Aged in new American oak barrels for 22 months. Unfiltered and unfined.

13.8% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

Piedra Hill Vineyard (W.H. Smith)

Purple Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Wow. If this was blind - I would’ve guessed 20 year old Bordeaux. Super complex and combo of tannins, fruit, meat, and some tobacco. Crazy. Nothing like I remember it from last bottle we had 10 years ago — 3 months ago

Perfect balance of berry and savory spices, expected it to be bigger but that’s ok. Well balanced. Wonderful Halloween wine. — 4 months ago

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Le Petit Haut Lafitte Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

We had the 2010 Vintage on 8/19-20/23. A wonderful wine. Full bodied but still Old World. The bouquet was very Bordeaux with aroma of graphite, tobacco and cigar box. Blackberry, plum on the palate. Real good for a second label — 6 months ago

Pale Ale


Samuel Smith's Organic Pale Ale is a nice pint. Amber coloured with a good but not over frothy bread. Bready, malty, and with a hint of caramel complimented by light carbonation.
A good traditional pale ale from one of England's oldest and finest brewers.
