Sonoma Cutrer

Eric Kent Wine Cellars

Label Artist Yellena James Rosé 2017

Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has frozen strawberries (thawing), juiced raspberries and orange zest.
Palate has tangerine peel, mashed strawberries, and waxy yellow apple peel. In a fine spot, don't hold these any longer.

Jack London Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

What a difference a year makes, the ‘11 I tried was mediocre, the ‘12 I tasted was much better. Dark Ruby with aromas of dark fruit, herb and floral notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry and cherry with hints of eucalyptus, leather and vanilla. Fine firm tannins, a bit chewy, medium+ finish ending with rich fruit and mineral notes. — 4 days ago

La Neblina Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2018

Everything berry kool aide and tea. Red, blue, black- cranberry, raspberry-all perfectly ripe. Oak, aging, fruit,are so well balanced, it’s hard to pull it it apart. A beautiful Cali Pinot. — 6 days ago

Freestone Vineyards Pinot Noir 2018

Sourced mostly from estate grown vineyards, this bright ruby wine has aromas of red fruits and sweet spices. On the palate flavors of cherry, plum and raspberry with underlying crispness, adding in some citrus and vanilla, rich in the mouth. Fine tannins, long finish, well balanced complex ending. Very Nice! — 17 days ago

Kamen Estate Wines

Moon Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Seems to me a little more approachable than other vintages I remember in the last few years. Nice robust sweet mountain fruit with blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, a hint of vanilla, pencil shavings, and sweet oak hits hard on the front both in the nose and on the palate. This bottle had about a 30 to 45 minute decant, and I think it was really all that it needed. It did develop a bit through the next hour, but the bottle really didn't last much longer than that! Toasted oak tannin finish with ripe and youthful blackberry, chocolate, blueberry notes. Incredible structure, and will last a good solid 15 years. — 3 days ago

Hirsch Vineyards

East Ridge Pinot Noir 2013

I normally like the West Ridge and its more subtle notes over the East Ridge, but this bottle of East Ridge was just fantastic. It was so very deep and yet still energetic and full of soaring, bright clean red fruits, combined with a lovely long finish. My wife and I basically raced each other to the bottom of this bottle. — 17 days ago

San Andreas Fault Pinot Noir 2018

Inviting nose that takes a short while to open up. Fresh red fruit character of pomegranates and bing cherries. Slight undertone of forest floor and baking spice. Medium bodied and bright, clean acidity. — 14 days ago
