The Lost Abbey

Moshin Vineyards

Lost Ranch Pinot Noir 2012

We had the 2012 Vintage on 12/1-2/23. A real RRV PN with tastes of blackberry, black raspberry, baking spices and cinnamon. Medium bodied and well balanced. New World, but not overly fruity — 4 hours ago

Cameron Winery

Abbey Ridge Vineyard Ramato Pinot Grigio 2011

Tastes like the coast I miss the most. — 22 days ago

Freemark Abbey

Sycamore Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

1991 | Cabernet Sauvignon
Freemark Abbey; Sycamore Vineyard
Napa Valley; Rutherford, California, USA
(93-95; Drink 2023-31)
Decanted 8H, more time appreciated.

Bought winery direct about 15Y post vintage.
We've always found the Sycamore as the more understated of the FAW Cabernet trifecta, but mostly over delivering each instance, and today is no exception. Some funky raspberry/cherry lead the nose, fruit leather, rich garden soil, shaved tanned leather; palate extends with dried Bing cherry, tobacco, dried raspberry, faint cedar notes. Tannins banished.

Possibly an ultimate burger wine when gratuitously paired with USDA Prime ground beef from Allen Bros.

100% Bosché Merlot fruit is a game changer for FAW; Seek and be rewarded.

No worries, the +1991 stuff will be rolling forward soon enough, got all three vineyards for '94 queued up for a future date, they're all home now.

Freemark Abbey

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Light notes of grapefruit and lemon. Flavor ends smoothly on the palate. It’s not too dry, which what I usually prefer for sipping. It was actually well received among a company of 12. The bottle was finished in about 20 minutes with compliments all around. — a month ago

Bosché Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 1992

Decant and pour. A fabulous still dark garnet with bricking. On the nose: Intoxicating musky sweet notes of cherry/plum, wet forest floor, stewed meat, black olives. Taste: creamy, silky smooth wine with dried cherry, prunes, soy sauce, pepper, smokey earth, mocha and a medium plus finish. Sure, on the downside, but showing its 31 year age beautifully and fun to drink tonight. Won a charity auction of old wines direct from the winery so more old vintage reviews down the road — 4 months ago
