Napa Valley Syrah 1999

Shows just a touch of oak, lovely dark fruits, nice balance, medium-long finish, less alcohol shows on this one, though it’s the same as the Amphora. — 9 days ago

Rattlesnake Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Had this at a private Barnett event tonight. Enjoyed this much more than the ‘16s I have had previously. Solid backbone and great fruit. — 11 days ago

Smith Madrone

Spring Mountain District Riesling 2017

Ming L
9.4

Wow this tasted better than the 16’ I can remember!
A bit more petrol note, in a very pleasant way. There is also more subtle tropical fruits such as pineapple on the nose. Hint of smoke as well. Textured like a Viognier. Bright clean cut acidity with just the slightest sweetness for balance.
Now I have no doubt that this is the best US Riesling I’ve tasted.

Napa Valley Red Blend 2010

Blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot & 3% Malbec, deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits with spice, herb and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry, fig and blueberry with currants, cacao, pepper and earthy notes. Fine soft tannins, good structure, long finish, great mouthfeel, ending with cedar, fruit and earthy character. Wonderful! Very Nice. — 8 days ago

Spring Mountain District Merlot 2019

Private Barnett event. Fruit forward, well crafted with enough cab franc to provide the mid palate. Well crafted. Enjoyed it with a pork appetizer. Lots of plum. — 11 days ago

School House Vineyard

Mezcolanza Zinfandel Blend 2016

So good, this is time-travel Zinfandel, just like the better producers made it in the 70s. (I don’t know how the trend got to the point where 15%+ jam monsters are the norm, but it did.) This has a nice youthful saturated color. Nose is very pure, spicy blackberry, with nose-tingly acids showing, spice, and loads of crushed stone minerality. At once lively and rich in the mouth, it’s got great, focused brambly Zin fruit and crisp—yes, crisp—acids. Bone dry. A bit of tannic structure and a nice rocky, gravelly note. So damn good. Go Bruins! — 20 days ago

9.1

Grafs family minus K visit (Ho left) mom BD 5/7/22. Cab lineup through the decades. The most controversial of the lineup. Ollie said dusty and liked it as much as the ‘69 Martini, others not. A mountain Cab that packs a punch and a steal of earthiness and firm texture. Stood up to all the meats if not kicked them to the side. — 15 days ago
