The Baron Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Was able to taste @Weston Eidson 's newest creation about 3 weeks after being bottled! A treat! This wine is a Medium+ bodied offering. A nose of black cherry, cola, and a little bit of bitter chocolate. The entry was very rounded for such a young wine. Some Cola and herb in the middle. Finished with some very youthful dusty and stiff tannins, but I guess I should expect this with a wine of such youth. I wasn't really getting the classic Rutherford dust...I think 'the dust' was just some chalky tannin. I think this one would have been better with a two-hour decant, but no one was interested in waiting that long. This bottle was gone pretty fast! I think this will be better in one to two years, 9.5 to 9.6 without thinking twice. Thank you Weston! — 6 hours ago

Robert Mondavi Winery

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

Excellent cab from Mondavi. Despite its age, there’s an impressive level of fruit intermixed with classic aged aromas of dried black currants, leather, and spice box notes. The leather and spice components dominate the palate, but there’s nice balance despite the fact that the fruit has given way to more of the earthy components of the wine. Lingering finish. Probably has a few more years of life, but it’s definitely on the downslope. Best to drink this one within the next few years. Terrific wine, though! — 14 days ago

G Major 7 Study 575 OVX Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

Drinking VERY WELL today. This wine is hedonistic. Classic Oakville nose pf oaky blackberry. On the palate, more ripe blackberry fruit, young, a touch of that youthful grit and power, yet has a meaty, savory character and a leathery middle with herbs while maintaining this perfect, ripe blackberry power. Finishes with still QUITE A BIT of tannin. Can go another 10 years but why wait? In a perfect spot right now. — 4 days ago

If you want an example of Oakville, this is it. What an absolutely gorgeous bottle of Cabernet. At pop and pour, it was very blackberry and gravely. An hour later it showed more sweet nutmeg on the nose. This is one of those wines where the fruit just tastes so doesn’t coat the mouth in tannins. Instead, it glides across the palate in a very focused way, showing cassis, wet stone, touch of spice, and a gorgeous finish full of black and red fruit. This is drinking fantastic.

Sueño Profundo

Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Cassis, red fruit, vanilla, pie spice. Touch of pleasant & appropriate herbaceousness. Superfine tannins, fine to drink now. Classic Napa Cab, but without the high pH and greasy texture that sorta ruins most of them for me. #napavalley #cabernetsauvignon — 2 days ago
