Alice Bonaccorsi

Rosso Relativo Sicilia IGT Nerello Mascalese

Nerello mascalese rosato of a garnet umber hue; really a light red. Layers of strawberry, honey and red fruit. But with volcanic dust. Aromas tight at first, but then lush, blossoming into rosehips and burnt caramel, olives and red fruit. Super good. — 13 days ago

Sheridan Vineyard

Mystique Red Blend 2016

Dark garnet. Inviting nose and juicy palate of plum (lead) and black fruit (background). Medium tannins and medium acidity wrapped in a voluptuous full body. Enjoy with a Porterhouse or either of its component parts. Sheer joy from Yakima! — 12 days ago

Ramey Wine Cellars

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

This bottle was the first from a case that was purchased direct from the winery on release about ten years ago. The 2007 Napa Valley designation Cabernet Sauvignon received over a third of its fruit from the Larkmead Vineyard and the quality shows. The color was a deep, dark, glass staining garnet with no obvious signs of age. On the nose, this was a powerful tobacco bomb with other delightful secondary characteristics such as earth and olives peaking through the curtain of opulent fruit. The palate was treated to all of the lushness and ripeness I have come to expect from the 2007 vintage in Napa valley; a velvet glove of sweet red and black fruits, leather and baking spices. Tannins are well integrated at this point and this is firing on all cylinders. Anyone with well stored examples of these will be well rewarded on the pop and pour. Drink now and over the next few years. — 5 days ago

Nice. I thought Ramey had a 100% Larkmead bottling in that year that I remember was outstanding.

@Eric Bass you might be right. I know he had a series of Larkmead Vineyard Cabernets in the mid-2000’s. I’m not so sure he does that anymore.

Seavey Vineyard

Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Double decant (lots of chunky sediment) and pour. A noble dark garnet color with little browning on the edges. On the nose: beautiful.....that sweet aged cab aroma with blue fruit, black olives, green veggies, eucalyptus, crushed rocks. Taste: Red plum, chocolate espresso, pencil lead, some blackberry. Beautiful sweet tannins coat the mouth....such a elegant, rich wine with a long finish. — 4 days ago

Bryant Family Vineyard

Proprietor Grown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Been breaking out some fun wines deep from the cellar to keep spirits HIGH during the stay at home Cali mandate. Day 10 is no exception......time for dinosaur steaks and a 2009 Bryant Family!!

Decanted 1 hour. An arresting deep dark garnet color(lots of cloudy sediment). On the nose: caught me completely off guard with stewed meat, black olives, band aids, some licorice, red berries, and floral. Taste: Wow, this is singing "Stairway to Heaven " ....no garage band version, this is Led Zeppelin 1970s!! Dark cherries, chocolate, espresso, tobacco.
A Mark Aubert beauty with fine, silky tannins coating the mouth. An elegant, rich, soft wine with a long toffee/blueberry finish
