Theorem Vineyards

Diamond Mountain District Merlot 2017

9.3

Thanksgiving wine number two. A total baby, but wanted to check in on it since it’s the first vintage for merlot from the Theorem team (and I love their other wines). Toes the line between being a “cab lovers merlot” and a classic merlot. Dusty, baked mixed berry pie, high percentage dark chocolate, violets and cedar on the nose. Due to its age, oak plays a big role up front but softens toward the middle and finish. The fruit, mainly red and black, is underripe and tart...black cherries, dark plums, currant, dates and a dash of baking spices. Benefitted nicely from a decant. — 8 days ago

@Joshua Fisher : They are on Diamond, just a short walk from The Vineyardist winery is located. Theorem’s merlot, Voir Dire Cab and Hawk’s Prey red are all estate fruit. They also introduced a Sauv Blanc and a chard this year but those two wines are solely purchased fruit from Moon Mountain.

Dyer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Thanksgiving wine 2019. Red cherry licorice and a hint of cola. At first this wine was a bit acidic but needed about 30 minutes to work itself out. Graphite hits in the middle. Medium + bodied wine. Got a little brambly towards the finish bit definitely not in a bad way. Going to hold nicely for the next 10 years. Beautifully done. — 9 days ago

Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Opened first bottle of mixed case to celebrate anniversary for 3rd decade (cheated a bit as this was 29 years with wonderful bride Kim. Lots of dark fruit with just a touch of tannic finish. We visited Al on our honeymoon to pass muster before he sold a case futures. Quite a character! btw, Groth & Girard were Cans for first 2 decades. — 4 hours ago

Red Rock Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

18/20 (95/100) Насыщенный аромат с сильными тонами шоколада и ванили; есть крем де кассис, черничный джем, кедр, гвоздика, кардамон. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, обволакивающими, шероховатыми танинами. Насыщенное во вкусе с продолжительным шоколадным послевкусием. Молодо. #dfwe2019 — 17 days ago
