Twelve Barrel Ranch

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

Blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, and 1% Merlot sourced estate-owned vineyards in Rutherford (30%), South Napa (22%), the St. Helena home ranch (17%), and Stag's Leap District (Barboza Vineyard, 17% and Las Rocas Vineyard, 14%). Just opened this, 14 years in the bottle after a couple of years in the barrel! Still tasting well, young and juicy, should easily last another 14 years in the bottle. Deep Ruby, dark fruits, spice, complex nose. Palate reflects juicy rich berry fruits, well structured harmonious wine. Fine soft rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, tobacco and earthy tones. Wow! — 2 months ago

Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch Pinot Noir 2013

Elegant doesn’t even begin to describe this single vineyard Pinot. Barrel notes shine through dark red fruit, substantial minerality, and balanced acidity. Gorgeous wine. — 4 years ago

Livermore Ranch

Livermore Valley Merlot 2013

A Bronco Wine wine. Hmm, That’s the Two Buck Chuck company. This is Livermore Valley AVA though. Worth the $4 flyer at Grocery Outlet. Dark ruby maroon color. Smells dense and kinda complex. Hint of fresh herbs and smoke of dried herbs with the fruity stuff. Flavors are complex. Cherries in a woodsy bourbon barrel thing. Also chalk. (Good way chalk). Meaty streak. This would go well with a rare steak from the coals. Reminds me of nice St. Èmilion or Meritage type blends from Sonoma. This is a great deal for the regular price and one of those WTF deals for $4 at G.O. Just good to great Merlot. — 2 years ago

Jamieson Ranch Vineyards

Double Lariat Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

A nice Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Showing black fruits, with chocolates, coffee, spices, coke, cedar, vegetables, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Nice length on the finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

Would benefit from another few years in the bottle. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (1 hour).

Barrel fermented and Barrel aged.
A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petite Sirah. Aged for 17 months in 40% new French oak barrels.

14.4% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$39.

The body is leaner full and ruby, lush and elegant. Perfume fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, creamy raspberries, baked strawberries, mixed berry cola, soft baking spices. caramel, light volcanic minerals, soft leather, crushed dry rocks, tobacco leaf and fresh red & dark perfume floral bouquets. The acidity is perfect and medium balance is perfect. Nicely done.

Rackhouse Wines

Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Rackhouse was hand-harvested from very low-yielding Cabernet Sauvignon vines to produce a deep red color with flashes of violet and rick layers of succulent fruit. This special wine was then aged in old Bourbon white oak barrels for twelve months wrapping the plum, raisin, red berry and roasted pepper flavors in swathes of chocolate and vanilla. An expressive, complex wine like no other, with an unforgettable persistent, ripe fruit finish. — 4 years ago
