Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

RP 95 and WE 93 This is good. It has a great nose, it’s well balanced, and has good structure, may be a bit simple, but sometimes I love that. There’s a purity of fruit that I like as well. I just don’t love the profile. I wanted to, but there is an earthiness / mushroom that was out of place IMO. Both on the nose and palate. Great deal on this right now and I was going to pick up volume (I’m stocking up on ‘16’s, think it’s gonna pay off big) just not on this one. Please give me a hollar if you have this and think it’s great. — 9 days ago

Estate Grown Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Very good fruit and substantial body. This wine is really coming into its own. Wonderful flavors of plum, blackberry and cherries. Although I don’t usually go with Cabernet at Thanksgiving, I couldn’t resist opening this one. It was great and everyone loved it. — 12 days ago

Bodega Colomé

Auténtico High Altitude Vineyards Malbec 2015

Dusty blackberry and smoky prune, black cherry, black raisin, violet and dark rose aromas all coalescing into a complex, arid mix of earthy dust and cocoa powder smells, with a side of black tahini. Black currant, tart black cherries, satin tannins, vine charcoal, grill char, valerian root, burnt gingerbread, plum reduction, and a balsamic depth bordering on hoisin. Great that this one has such concentration from high elevation fruit. Dark, deep and intense at a relative value. #Hesswine #Hess #Hessfamily #Argentinewine #Argentinawine #Salta #Colomé #highelevationwine #calchaquivalley #malbec #argentinemalbec — a month ago
