Michael's Cuvée Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

We had this on 8/24/19. A real good Cab. Tastes of blackberry, blueberry, plum, chocolate and some oak. Fine tannins, smooth finish to this full bodied wine. — a month ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Very full, gorgeous color. Lots of cherry notes with a lingering finish that’s really wonderful. Earthy, firewood. — 4 months ago

Oakville Station Cabernet Franc

Nose: high-toned red fruits, white peppercorn and a bit of eucalyptus. In the glass this well-balanced wine brings tart raspberries, cranberries and the eucalyptus again. Overall this is a nicely balanced wine with lots of acidity that makes it an excellent wine to pair with meals. — 8 months ago

Going back over notes, this ranked 3 of 11 in our blind ‘97 Cali Cab tasting. I liked this wine. Still had plenty of life despite my prior “missing fruit” comment. It was more earthy than fruity with plenty of tannins and a long finish. This will go another 5-7 years.

Chateau Haut Théron

Cuvée Prestige Cahors Malbec 2016

One of my close friends and I aged a bottle of this French Malbec upon his leave from NYC.

It’s not a particularly great bottle. It can be bought for $11. It is exceptional because of its context. We forget that wine is an opportunity. A moment of memory and gratitude to create. If we use this excuse to gather with friends, then we’ve already elevated the wine.

We aged it for just 1.5 years and so it met its 5 year mark. It was light, resembling the composition of a Pinot Noir. It was airy and, now, after tasting the bottle this weekend again, new, without the extra aging, we can tell that the chemical, sugary aftertaste disappeared.

Great out of the store, even better after personal aging in a walnut veneer bar, and exceptional if drunk with friends, especially close ones.

Two bottles, across two weeks, aging one for almost two years. For the cornerstone experience, a 9.3.

Benchlands Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Smells like synthetic firewood that someone burned some pretty flowers in. Would love to eat this with some olives. This just really makes me want to go camping. S’mores (not necessarily for pairing purposes as much as I just really want to relive my childhood) with a dash of this drinkable bottle would really ring in the summer on the right note. — 4 months ago

Ferrington Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

This cornerstone Pinot vineyard in Anderson Valley is known for powerful fruit, and this vintage is a great example. The knock is that the fruit expression is obvious and more one-dimensional than pinot from, say, Sonoma or Willamette Valley. I like this wine and the work Kevin Harvey has done with Rhys in Anderson Valley - but the jury is still out in my mind - I’m not convinced it will become a great region for Pinot noir... — 8 months ago
