Lost Vineyard Merlot 2017

A really nice introduction to Snowden Vineyards with this one. Deep cherry color with a thin rim. The amount of earth on the nose is really nice. Graphite and soft red cherries leads to just about the right amount of cedar. Juicy blueberries take the lead after a heavy decant.

Single vineyard Napa Merlot with a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon thrown in just for good measure. Medium bodied with tannins on the supple side. 14.0 but doesn’t get the balance off. Nice acidity and structure. The palate mirrors the nose with brambly fruit and toasty wood elements. Long finish with spices and herbs. Next time your dumb friend starts quoting Sideways, give them this.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1989

Classic mature Napa Cabernet. A great bottle of wine. Shared with good friends in Napa. Medium bodied, ripe red fruits, rhubarb, and underlying forest floor. 30 % Snowden fruit and the earthiness shows it. 12% alcohol and firm acidity from winemaker styles of long ago. What a treat. — 6 years ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

A dark, dark plum color with little traces of brown. Noticeable bricking at the edges. Soft cherries and chocolate on the nose primarily but opens up to a little floral and spice notes. Still a good amount of fruit to be found here with raspberries and blueberries. The hint of vanilla and wood after a lengthy decant.

Napa Cab at 21 years of age, still going strong. After a decant of about two hours, this starts to blossoms. Big but not brutish at all. Feels more like an old school Claret at this point. Deep and still a bit sensual with soft tannins. Red and blue fruit dominant but you’ll also get some nice vegetal notes in the mouth. Still alive and kicking but the end is nigh. Drink em if you got em.

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

1hr+ decant. Lovely purple, dark red color. Amazing nose of cigar box, dark cherries, and ever so subtle green elements. Wine was deep and chewy to start with a touch of vanilla and oak at the end, which wasn’t out of place at all! It did start to fade towards the end or I would have been @ 96. Reminded me of all those great Bordeaux’s we drank in London!! Finish was medium plus. Paired lovely with mustard and applewood marinated ribs. — 6 months ago

Lost Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

Always fun to try older wines like this. Cassis, dried herbs, tobacco, cigar box, soft tannin and acid still holding. Great time to drink. Buddy brought it as a shoe in for a faulted wine and it turned out to be a stunner. Gotta say, sometimes bottle variation can prove to be a good thing, if you get the right one of course 👍🏻 — 4 years ago
