Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

DE
8.9

It was big but not as complex as earlier vintages. It has some more growth to come but tasting good early on. — 20 days ago

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Riserva Rancia Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Translucent ruby. So compact, tight and powerful. Electric. Subtle floral perfume with red fruit, tobacco, leather and black fruit. Lots of stuffing on the palate, but the nose is pretty closed. Wouldn’t touch this for five years. — 2 days ago

Had the 10…very good. As well, the 16. However, that won’t be open for awhile, 2025-26.

Thacher Winery

Nouvea Valdiguié ShellCreek Vineyard 2020

This wine is medium dark red in the glass and has a nose of strawberry and cherry, with an earthy element added to it -sort of a Beaujolais feel. The palate offers up brilliant cherry notes and a racy acidity, along with rather firm tannins. The oak treatment - only five months neutral - make this a great choice for backyard cookouts this summer. Don't be afraid to ice down this unusual grape. Valdiguié is almost extinct, I'm told. It was once called Napa Gamay. — 3 days ago

Shafer Vineyards

One Point Five Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Small winery, managed by Doug Shafer. Blend of 90% Cab Sauv, 7% Merlot & 3% Malbec, aged, 20 months, 100% new French oak. Beautiful fruit & floral aromas, hints of savory spice. On the palate cherry & raspberry flavors with oak structure adding pepper, licorice & cacao. Firm tannins, approachable now, long ending with fruit & mineral edge. Had this about 2+ years ago, nice now but more cellaring will only benefit this beauty, if you can resist the temptation. Very Nice! — 16 days ago

I don’t think I ever stopped in there. Now that things are opening up again, I think I will. Thanks!

Toulouse Vineyards

The Drippings Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Drippings= the last five gallons of each estate Pinot barrel blended into one, with a little more oak aging. I like their leaner pinots even more. — 8 days ago

Klingenberg Alte Reben Spätburgunder 2016

Upon opening, very good but stern, Needs time.

A week in the fridge and this is still beautiful, mellowed out and wonderfully open. Red fruits, perfect herbal touch. Will wait another five years before touching my other bottle.

Cain Vineyard & Winery

Cain Five Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Cain Five and Waygu strip steak(from Snake River Farms) zoom tasting with Chris Howell(owner of Cain) and Chef Hiro Sone (owner/chef of the former Terra in St. Helena). 2008 vintage and 2013 vintage.

Prior notes apply for the 2008 vintage.

2013 vintage: 1 hour decant (some cloudy sediment). A dark garnet color with a little bricking. On the nose: certain vintages of Cain embrace the Brett on the property, and this is one of em. Some funky barnyard (luv it), plum, pine, tobacco, smoked meat, forest floor, orange peel. Taste: smooth medium plus body wine with plum, pine, currant, coffee, and a bitter chocolate dry medium plus finish. Some tannins still kicking wanting a few more years in the bottle.
