Byrd Vineyard

Reserve Mendocino Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose of chocolates, coffee, black fruits, cedar and spices.

Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, blackberries, cedar, leather, light vanilla, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, black pepper and herbs.

Pretty finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

This 12 year old Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking beautifully. Rich, yet elegant and delicious now.

Entertaining and easy drinking right out of the bottle, and better after 30 minutes of airtime.

I had it 3 years ago and it is so much better now. At its peak and will continue to drink nicely in the next few years.

A Gorgeous wine with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown at 2,400 feet of elevation.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

Mendocino County Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Extra tenth points for outrageous QPR when purchased for $20 in 2019. Do you like aged, inky, estate cabs you can buy off shelf 10 years later and still decant? Maybe not the best fruit a decade ago, but who cares? Beside the point completely. I’ll buy until it’s gone. From the place I bought it. Which I’m not sharing. — 4 years ago

California Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

Had this wine at Byrd and Baldwin Bros. steakhouse the night we eloped. It is fantastic. It has lots of dark flavors but none are overwhelming. I could drink it everyday! — 7 years ago

Mendocino County, CA, Bordeaux style blend is fantastic value. Dark ruby color, full bodied and very smooth. Nice dark bramble fruit with pepper note and fine tannins on the finish. Would probably continue to develop nicely over the next few years. — 8 years ago

Apollo Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2016

Dark, powerful wine. Blackberry & cracked pepper with chalky tannins just played perfectly with grillled Tri tip. This showed some great earthy notes as it opened up. Thoroughly enjoyed this wine. Paired up with what should be a country rock classic, The Fantastic Expedition Of Dillard & Clark. Ex-Byrd Gene Clark had a better run after he left the band & this is one of his highlights. — 5 years ago
