Hall Wines

T Bar T Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.

Have to give it to Hall...they know how to churn out consistent wines. I called this Bordeaux, actually. Never had a Hall this old. It’s shed the baby fat of red, blue and black fruit and showing more plum and cassis. Little bit of leather to it, with some dark cocoa dusted dates. Drinking nice, but I think I enjoy Hall’s winemaking style in its youth a touch more than 10yrs of age on them.

Archimedes Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

This is a powerful Cabernet, initially restrained on the nose it opens up very nicely after a short time in the decanter. No such restraint on the palate, thick, silky and packed with fruit, leather and vanilla. This is not a delicate wine but it’s not overdone in my opinion, it was the perfect pairing for a Sunday roast beef. — 8 days ago

Delicious! Aroma is rich and inviting with black cherry and dark chocolate notes. This carries over to a smooth texture and mouthwatering finish. 625 cases produced and worth seeking out☺ — 3 hours ago

Robert Young Estate Winery

Big Rock Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Classic Alexander Valley nose and palate. Nice fruit yet still quite restrained. Good acidity on the front. Dark, punchy black cherry and herb and some subtle green pepper and black pepper on the finish. This one would crush an Alexander Valley Silver Oak both now and 10 years from now. Need to do an 07 side by side comparison soon! Drink or hold this one as it will surely develop over the next 15 yrs. — 18 days ago

@Greg Ballington I do like their Barrel Select Chard without a doubt. Their fave wine of mine is either the Bob's burn pile Cabernet, the Cabernet Franc, or The Rock Block Cabernet...however they do offer a petit verdot as well which is very good for the sub $50 price tag

Scherrer Winery

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Very similar flavor profile to the 2012 Scherrer Vineyard cab, but without as much structure. This was surprisingly ready to go on opening and, given the lighter tannin presence, is one I’d enjoy over the next few years, while the vineyard designate could go longer. — 20 days ago
