Sacrashe Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Still drinking great after 11 years. I do miss these wines (although Gerhard is producing some terrific wines under his new lable, Reisacher Estate). — 3 months ago

Reisacher Estate

Inaugural Release Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Wow. For those of you who remember Delectus wines, this is the first vintage of Gerhard Reisacher’s new operation in Knight’s Valley...and it is a winner. Intense aromas of cassis, black currant, and bittersweet chocolate, this has a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet and perfectly integrated tannins, and a long, elegant finish. Easily on par with the best wines he ever made at Delectus, if you liked those wines then you’ve got to try this! — 5 months ago

Carnuntum Cuvée Zweigelt 2018

Solid, but not memorable. Some green vegetable notes the first day, but on second and third days it was more pristine and elegant. — 2 months ago

Ried Scheibner Pinot Noir 2019

All the nice parts of a Rose: crisp and dry but still fruity and a little sweet. We enjoyed it with a summer tomato tart and salad. — 2 months ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2009

So, I’m of the opinion that Gerhard Reisacher’s sweet spot is Cabernet Franc. This 2009 isn’t quite as good as his 2007 - that is the best 100% cab franc I’ve ever had - but this is damn close. No trace of the bell pepper you typically get from people picking the fruit too early, this is a terrific wine with notes of something reminiscent of roasted chipotle pepper, black pepper, and currant. Medium-to-full bodied palate with a silky, mouthfilling feel leading to a lingering finish. This is nothing like a cab franc from The Loire - pure California - but a terrific wine nonetheless. Winemakers would do well to take lessons from Gerhart on how to handle this varietal. — 4 months ago
