Proprietary Red

Nice Bordeaux blend. More earth qualities than fruit. Smooth silky mouthfeels. Nicely layered and slight complexity for the price point — 10 months ago

Amapola Creek

Estate Bottled Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Fabulous. If you’re still drinking Napa cab you’re missing out on glorious sonoma cab particularly from moon mtn. Richard arrowood is a master and damn I wish I had bought more of this wine. Drinking so good now it has another 5-10 years easy. — 10 days ago


Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Smooth, medium acidic, fruit forward. Very nice. — 25 days ago


Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

To my view, it’s a classic new world Cabernet with powerful fruit and wood which is full on in 2019 for the 1996 bottle. Enjoyable spices and body, although some lack of elegance and sophistication. — 2 months ago

Larkmead Vineyards

Solari Estate Napa Valley Pinot Noir 1988

Pre-Larkmead bottling. Didn’t have the telltale Cab nose of the Arrowood or Forman, and not sure I would have pegged it as Cabernet if tasted blind. That said, this was a beautiful wine. Soft fruit, great balance, and in a word, elegant. Nice surprise. And no, @Bill Bender that is not The Skipper on the label. — a year ago
