Bel Canto Cara Mia Vineyard Red Blend 2016

Have you baked fruit I’ve only slightly accompanied, bacon, spices, more like a little bit of juicy and fatty tannins that complement more than blend. Gives a good structure, so the whole thing doesn’t end up too jammy. Woods beyond oak like cedar, cigarbox, Cedar, Pinion-wood, things like that. A little bit of forest floor mushroom.  — 5 months ago

Klipsun Vineyard Red Wine Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2003

Lots of berry still left on this one. Tasted a hint of licorice still. Lovely lovely wine. I will always be impressed with how well Ben’s wines age. — 5 years ago

Tapteil Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1998

Ben’s wines are just the best. They age beautifully, case in point that his first vintage is tasty so well right now. Really good with spicy meat. Lovely. — 5 years ago

Fermentat en Amfores Xarello 2019

Wowwwww. Flower and salt on the nose with a little lime squeeze. Slightly spritzy, creamy and salty on the palate. Bitter phenolics but with an interesting lingering sweetness on the finish. Definitely displays the amphora aging. The perfect wine for four courses at cadence. — 3 years ago


Cara Mia Vineyard Camerata Cabernet Franc Blend 2011

This vintage is actually a Cabernet Sauv-heavy blend and it was delicious! Definitely a highlight of the night. — 4 years ago

Clos Cibonne Côtes de Provence Cru Classé Tibouren Rosé

The spectacularly viscous, savory, herbal Provencial rose’s are a big favorite but for most of the best ones, you spend a lot more for subtle, though not insignificant improvements.

Clos Cibonne seems to be a well known exception. You get the extra joie de vivre sans the premium. It’s one of the few wines I buy with cadence. Heavy on orange and rose hips and follows with the herbs we love - rosemary, fennel, thyme, some tropical notes filling the gaps.

Coda Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Dark reddish purple. Inviting nose and medium-bodied palate of red berries, pomegranate, and a hint of toasted nuts on the moderate finish. Medium tannins. Medium acidity. A most typical example of mid-range Washington. The midpoint between New World fruit (but dark fruit) and Old World structure makes for an excellent American food wine. Pair with anything from burgers to roots to prime rib. Just do so by 2027. — 3 years ago

Aux Serpentières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2003


At Cadence 8/3/19 with Cindy Jane Pino gang. Still the same characteristics as three years ago with the woody rather burnt taste but perhaps a bit better resolved. 4 more to go through! — 5 years ago

On Q

Cadence Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

A tremendous value that plays against the big boys. A subtle blend to support the dominate Cab flavors. Pure 100% Coombsville. Yum — 5 years ago
