Smith Madrone

Spring Mountain District Riesling 2016

This is a very tasty Riesling from Napa Valley.

Medium-bodied with medium-plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

This 6 year old is showing lemons, yellow apples, petrol, plastic, cream, earth, minerals, herbs, sea salt and white pepper.

I had it a year ago, and it seems like it is less fruit forward now.

Spicy and entertaining. Good by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and better when not too cold.

12.8% alcohol by volume.

Smith Madrone

Spring Mountain District Chardonnay 2016

The six-year-old Chardonnay from Napa is drinking so nicely right now. Nice to see how it aged.

Full-bodied and bold with medium acidity.

Showing yellow and red apples, melons, citrus, spices, light oak, vanilla, herbs and white pepper.

Creamy, buttery, and not over the top with a oak notes. Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel.

Nicely balanced with a tangy finish.

Good right out of the bottle, and better when not too cold.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.4% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Unmistakenly old school classy Bordeaux. Currants, plum, pencil shavings, black truffel, damp forest floor. The fruit has slightly started to fade in favour of earthy tones. Nice pairing to grilled spring lamb. Drink now. — 2 months ago

Really delicious. Rich yet relatively high toned. 13.3%! Impressive. Day 2, kind of strange. Lowered rating a bit. — 3 months ago

Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix.
Here is a yummy one.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Still very young, but already enjoyable, even by itself.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Showing black fruits with cedar, licorice, chocolates, vanilla, spices, tobacco, coffee, peppercorn and light earth.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

Another great wine from Mike Smith. Spicy, rich and extracted. Very tasty.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime.

This 6 year old, from the great 2016 vintage, will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 22 months.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity.

This 9 year old, from the great 2013 vintage, is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 3 hours in the decanter.

Another wonderful wine from the hands of Mike Smith. Rich, elegant, fruit forward and extracted.

Getting to be at its peak, but not there yet, although very enjoyable at this point. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Robert Parker 93 points.

Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.

Great by itself as a sipping wine, and will also pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.

Very reminiscent of framboise, doesn’t really taste like an ale, nor alcoholic — 7 months ago
