True Acacia Head Central Coast Albariño 2020

This is a very tasty Albariño from California.

Showing limes, lemons, citrus, green apples, herbs, earth and minerals.

Dry on the palate with mild complexity.

Good right out of the bottle and better with food. Lemony, tangy and spicy.

I paired it with baked grouper with herbs and lemons.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

Ceja

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

We were fortunate to visit Ceja Vineyards in April where we were introduced to the Ceja family’s gorgeous wines. 🙏

We wanted to open a bottle to celebrate and recognize National Hispanic Heritage month. Following are the notes we took at the time, which remain true today:

Ceja is a Mexican-American family owned winery producing wines from both Napa and Sonoma valleys. “In one generation the Ceja family has gone from immigrant vineyard workers to grape growers and winery owners.” 💪 🇲🇽 🇺🇸

We loved learning about the inspiring background of this winery and family’s devotion to excellence. 💕💕

The wines are designed to be paired with food (especially, though not exclusively, traditional Mexican cuisine), but are delicious on their own, too.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is full, velvety, and rich with a lot of ripe blackberry, cassis, and black cherry 🍒 characteristics. Aged for 36 months in French oak, it has dark chocolate, nutmeg, and clove notes. Also leather and anise.

Delicioso! 👏👏👏 Salud 🤩

This was good…like, REALLY good. I couldn’t believe how accessible this was for a 2016 Howell Mtn wine. I removed the cork and let it sit for about 45mins or so before trying. First word that came to mind was opulent. Color (deep purple), aromatics (sandalwood, fresh squeezed blue and black fruits) and palate (espresso, oven baked mixed berry pie, Andes mint) were just a total luxurious experience. It’s dense without being flabby and is packed with flavor. One of those wines that has a finish defined by sweet tannin. I followed this over two days and day two actually showed the finish bulk up and become more tannic, so I think this is still in a youthful exuberant phase. If enjoying now, give it 30mins-hr decant and enjoy the heck out of it. — a month ago

How long do you like to give Howell Mtn wine in the bottle?

@Deborah M : For me, it really depends on the producer. A lot of Howell Mtn wines are big and structured, so in order to hit that sweet spot, 7-8yrs from vintage can be a sweet spot. That being said, some producers are able to soften those mountain tannins and make really plush wines. This seems to be one of them!

Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Tasty and spicy. Delicious and extracted. A very typical Cabernet for the region, but oh so yummy.

Dry and full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, chocolates, tobacco, spices, graphite, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Very fruity on the palate and elegant. Well balanced with nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle, and better with airtime (3 hours).

I've heard many people trash the 2017 vintage in California. So far I've not seen that to be true, and this is a great example of that.

This 4 year old is still very young, and would age nicely in the next 10 to 20 years.

Good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats. I paired it with grilled Lamb chops.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

95 points.

$190 (current vintage).
