Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Y’all, it’s hot in Texas. This wine definitely helps. Crisp and refreshing. Citrus and tropical fruit for the win. Enjoyable Thursday night casual bottle. — 4 days ago

I hate it. I don’t even want to open a red wine in this weather. I opened an Ovid white today in hopes of staying cool!

@Shay A Agreed on not opening reds. These temps are forcing me to enjoy whites more. Miserable. At least I’m finding some good ones.

Block 3 Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

9.5

If you do anything in your life, find a 6-7 yr old Felton Road Pinot or their Chardonnay at 3-4 yrs old. Decant it hours. The Chardonnay served at near room temperature. You will thank me. The fruit, complexity and acidity get my highest recommendation. It extraordinary Burgundy & style at a fraction of the price. Crossroads of new & old world.

Still room for growth here.

Brazilian steakhouse and a night tour of Stanford 🌲 🏈 . Thanks for the great hospitality Michael & Henrik, look forward to more visits.

Now the wine:
Raspberries, floral notes, toasted oak, light body. Paired well with the filet and skirt steak. The Pelissa vineyard is located on Oakville Crossroads directlybehind the family winery, creating this Estate grown & produced Zinfandel.

Château Sansonnet

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Precious nose. Medium body. Can’t decide if it wants to finesse/pickpocket things or drop the pizazz bomb since it tries to rock both. Solid juice but I’ve got absolutely zero idea where it ends up in 3 years. 7 years. A decade. Two. A wine at a crossroads early on. Drinking deliciously now tho. — 8 months ago

Rudd Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Rudd Estates Crossroads Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Napa Valley, California


Here is my
#FridayCabernetfix for this week.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, black cherries, dried figs, raisins, black pepper, chocolates, cedar, vanilla, tobacco, light alcohol, licorice and spices. Exactly what you would expect from a good quality Napa Cabernet.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cooked plums, raisins, dried fruits, tobacco, spices, chocolates, cola, cedar, vanilla, espresso, graphite and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and spices.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Nicely balanced and fruit forward, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Very enjoyable to drink by itself. Still young, but already very tasty. Has great potential to reach 95+ points in 5 to 10 years.

Good by itself or with food. I gave it 90 minutes to open up in a decanter.

I paired it with cheeses, but so yummy and delicious all by itself.

Aged in (46% new) French Oak barrels.

15.1% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$80.
