Spring Valley Vineyard

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.

Estate Bottled Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 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. — 9 days ago

Mezcolanza Zinfandel Blend 2013

Brought to Tasting Group from my cellar and presented to the group double-blind. The wine presents a deep ruby color with moderate staining of the tears. Medium viscosity. On the nose, notes of strawberry, cherry candy, watermelon juice, menthol, green herbs oregano thyme, and cedar. On the palate, the wine is dry and structure is medium+ across the board. The finish is long, tart, mineral and woody but not in a new oak sort of way. Everyone was in the Old World with guesses ranging from Burgundy to Rioja. To be fair, not many in Napa makes Zinfandel like this anymore…if any at all. Lovely stuff. — a month ago
