Definitely a day 2 wine at this young age. Minty blue mountain fruit. Still a few years away from its prime window. — 3 days ago

Wow. Wonderful, just amazing right now. Beautiful bouquet of violet and dark fruit. Elegant black and blue fruit with touches of cigar, and charcoal. Sad this is my last bottle! — 15 days ago

Perfect timing on this one. Want more. Way too easy to drink and a little dangerous. Nice layers and complex wine. Diamond mountain never disappoints. — 3 days ago

Maybe no baseball, but you gotta love a Thomas Seaver Cabernet pitch!

Nickel & Nickel

Sori Bricco Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

9.4

Picked this up at Nickel & Nickel’s Entrecôte en Baguette Futures Tasting. Seems similar to the movie “Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade,” from the 15-16 reds we tasted, we chose the Sori Bricco wisely. 😂

The nose is very brooding. Big, dark, black ripe ruby & liqueured fruits of; black plum, blackberries, dark cherries, mulberries, poached strawberries & creamed raspberries. Dark chocolate, non distinctive baking spices, steep tea, limestone, bay leaf, sage, dark berry fruit cola, dark, rich soils, dark spice, dry crushed rocks, anise, dry tobacco leaf, graphite, dry twig, slightly, moist clay, volcanic ash, saddle-wood with fresh, candied; dark, red, purple flowers framed in lavender with accents of violets.

For a 13, the palate is nicely round & full. Still showing big dark, chewy & somewhat tarry tannins. It’s fresh, juicy, concentrated & gorgeous. This wine is delicious tonight but, my next bottle won’t be for another 6-7 years. It has big teeth. The structure, tension, length and balance are good but, it will be at least 6-7 more years before they show their best. There is a sexy flow over the palate. Big, dark, black ripe ruby & liqueured fruits of; black plum, blackberries, dark cherries, mulberries, poached strawberries & creamed raspberries. Dark chocolate, mocha powder, caramel notes, understated; clove, nutmeg, cinnamon & vanilla, steep tea, limestone, bay leaf, sage, dark berry fruit cola, dark, rich soils, dark Indian & Asian spice with palate heat, dry crushed rocks, anise, dry tobacco leaf, graphite, dry twig, pronounced, dry top soil, slightly, moist clay, volcanic ash, saddle-wood with fresh, candied; dark, red, purple flowers framed in lavender with accents of violets. The acidity is round & excellent. For me, It holds the slightly higher ABV in check. The finish is; big, lush, ruby, nicely knitted & balanced elegant and slides into dark, tarry, chewy, silty, dusty tannins that persist minutes and then tailing off into dark spice.

This is easily a 20-25 year wine & perhaps more, properly stored of course.

Photos of; buffet of decanted Nickel & Nickel red wines (pretty sure the decanter buffet will go away after Covid), the branded archway you drive under to get to the property, courtyard pond & guests of the event enjoying lunch made to pair with their wines.

Diamond Creek Vineyards

Red Rock Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

This shows some bricking. Classic cabernet cassis (black currant)fruit. Fennel, hints of cedar, a nice dusty/gravel note. Tannins are soft (almost plush) and open. Acidity builds as it opens up. This hit its peak on night two after remaining fairly reticent on the first evening. The third evening it was singing nicely but lacked the intensity of the second night. — 13 days ago

I don’t know how you can made a bottle last 3 nights. You must have a lot of discipline!! :)
