Smith Story

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.

91 points.

Piedra Hill Vineyard (W.H. Smith)

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Trying an aged Howell Moutain. Ripe blackberry, prunes, bramble, leather, melty rubber, gas station fumes, candied pecans and cola on the nose. Mellowed and integrated ripe blackberry, prunes, char, vanilla on the palate, with some herbal spice and black tea on a nice long finish. Looks like folks weren’t impressed by the other reviews but I really liked it. :) — 4 days ago

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

2009 vintage, kosher version. Don't have good experiences with most kosher wines, but this is a great wine with layers of fruit, Pessac-Léognan spiciness , velvety tannin and a very long finish. — 10 days ago

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Les Hauts de Smith Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

Beautiful Bordeaux that will probably last another 10-15 years, but we won’t know because it’s drank tonight!! Cherry, fruit on the front, lingers to tobacco / leather on the back pallet. Completely quaffable and still has some years left, although not many! Beautiful portrayal of Bordeaux!! — 11 days ago

Birthday / Memorial Day party. This was over the top and delicious. Not a wine you want to marry, but a killer one night stand. — a month ago
