Further improved on day 2.
Lots of oak treatment on the nose and palate. Tannins are still quite robust, along with the acidity. Best Lamborn in a while. Drink or hold this vintage.

Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 1986

Backward mountain fruit, but not as tannic as I’d expected, though this should easily last another 25 years, old school Cal Cabernet (13% ABV) that I long for!! — 2 hours ago

Howell Mountain Vineyards

Beatty Ranch Zinfandel 2017

Telltale earthy black peppercorn scents are there, with ripe and focused dark blackberry. Great flavor concentration in the mouth, with electric acids pushing it along. Palate has equal measure earthy barky notes and intense fruit. — 25 days ago

Piedra Hill Vineyard (W.H. Smith)

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Trying an aged Howell Moutain. Ripe blackberry, prunes, bramble, leather, melty rubber, gas station fumes, candied pecans and cola on the nose. Mellowed and integrated ripe blackberry, prunes, char, vanilla on the palate, with some herbal spice and black tea on a nice long finish. Looks like folks weren’t impressed by the other reviews but I really liked it. :) — 5 days ago

Wonderful smell and delicious, smooth finish. Not super bitey but not mild either. Recommend it! — 7 days ago

Black Sears Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Birthday and Father’s Day celebrations. Special treat from a client. Black Sears Vineyard living up to all I have heard. Rich dark fruit, blackberry pie in a glass, soft tannins, a very balanced wine, served with smoked bbq beer can chicken, roasted veggies and potatoes. Spices from the chicken pairing very well. What a nice treat. Well done Mr. Arcudi! — 6 days ago
