Vijariego Negro 2015

16.5/20 (91/100) Аромат спелой вишни, брусники и малинового варенья с легкой нотой поджаренного хлеба. Средняя тельность, высокая кислотность, довольно интенсивные, но гладкие по текстуре танины. Ягодное во вкусе с брусничной горчинкой. Весьма достойное вино. — 9 months ago

Prado Red Blend 2014

Juicy, succulent with layers of texture. Black cherry and licorice with smoke, vanillin, and red rose petal. Really unique palate.. smooth and almost airy but with a beautiful cherry fruit texture. Blind, I would have guessed this to be the spring mountain, honestly. 100% single block Oakville vineyard. Nothing like regular oakville and I love it for that. — 2 years ago

Drinking fantastically well right now with a decant. Full fruit still, yet soft tannins. Was a great afternoon sipper. — 4 months ago

I’ve enjoyed their recent bottlings, especially the Spring Mountain cab for the price.

Steve Distler, owner of Arnyca, is doing consulting for a few small labels out in Napa. As I've posted before, his Arnyca cab franc is my favorite out of Napa Valley. He was the former GM at O'Brien Estate and was able to add them to his portfolio, along with Cobden Wini (winemaker for Arnyca and winemaker at O'Brien), Frias Family and Jack Winery. Killer line-up of small production stuff. We hosted him for a wine dinner and all of it was stellar.

Jack Winery utilizes the talents of Aonair winemaker Grant Long Jr. Jack was started by Vernon Wells (former MLB player) and Chris Ianetta (current MLB player). This '14 cab is from Diamond mountain and drinking well at a young age. Not as monstrous as young Howell Mountain cabs. Red and black fruit dominant with a decent amount of espresso and pepper. Needs to rest for a few years but has very good potential to be extremely good.

Love the intensity and length! A man’s wine if you don’t mind the non-pc description. I guess you could stay a strong women’s wine as well 😂 — 2 months ago
