The Chief Red Blend 2018

Emma and I drank this and both found it very good and would buy again. Good on its own as it caused us to consider its layers. Of the case of reds we had Abby at City Vineyards pick out, this was a stand out. — 11 days ago

Matthiasson

Village Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Guest post from @Ryan Vento : My first exposure to Steve’s ‘Village’ series and I must say, I’m very pleased. This bottle was paired throughout a 3+ hour sushi dinner and it performed admirably, exhibiting an uncharacteristically Burgundian profile not commonly found in Napa Cab. The acidity complimented the fresh fish and bright red fruits intermingled with baking spices offered a lovely depth that kept our palates engaged through a multi-course dinner. This was a pleasant surprise. —at Kanau Sushi — 9 days ago

Gift from Ryan. Nice sweetness, but not too sweet. Pleasantly surprised by this one. Very drinkable, slightly sweet & crisp. — a month ago

Barnett Vineyards

Spring House Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Wine club release from York Creek. Less brawny than Barnett’s main releases (Cyrus Ryan and Rattlesnake). Mountain fruit (albeit a little less fruit forward) with some nice spice notes and good structure — 19 days ago

The Dissident Columbia Valley Red Blend 2018

A blend of 70% Cab Sauv, 21% Merlot, 7% Cab Franc & 2% Petit Verdot, aged for 18 months in 60% new French oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits and spicy notes. On the palate flavors of black cherry and blackberry with cacao and tobacco adding in oak and leather. Well balanced with acidity, fine tannins, long finish ending with oak and sweet spice. Has room to age. Nice! — 21 days ago

Sémillon Fancy Pants Late Harvest 2008

Diesel nose, guava flavors. Sweet without being cloying or syrupy (though feels slightly syrupy in mouth). Usually don't like dessert wines, but this is pretty good! — 25 days ago

Gruet Winery

Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay

Love these bubbs! Cheers to two Houston snow days!🥂
.
I’m a big Gruet fan (
#QPR) , and this wine is my favorite of theirs I’ve had. @Ryan Vento pointed out tonight he prefers the Blanc de Noirs over this because of the prominent green apple notes in this one, but it’s exactly why I love it!
