Perfect Season

Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This big beauty took a while to open up. It was worth the wait. The nose was tight to me not reveling much of to what was to come. I was able to get some dark red fruits and maybe a passing wire of chocolate. Later after time in the decanter some earth and spices developed as well with a little more chocolate. The palate is rewarded with dark blue fruit, wet rocks, what I thought was mushroom but others did not see it my way, tobacco leaves, cigar box and ever so slight bit of chocolate. The finish seemed to go on and on. The tannins could not have been better in this glass of wine. I was very lucky to try this wine. — 21 days ago

Gundlach Bundschu

Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1553

Well the pros have it wrong on this one. This is 2014 Gundlach Bundschu cabernet sauvignon from Sonoma. I give it a perfect 9.8 after a 30 min decant! The blackberry and dark currant typical of a big cab is overwhelmingly good. The chocolate and spicy initial palate is to die for. Then the rush of American oak and cigar box lines the foundation of this amazing cab. The finish is dry with a subtle tart tingle on the sides of the tongue. Good grief, I need MORE!!!!!!! — 5 days ago

Vine Hill Vineyard Chardonnay 2004

Nice piece of Napa history went down tonight to celebrate the upcoming 15th anniversary at Folly Beach SC. Herbal nose. Aged yellow fruit. Poured medium to dark amber color into the glass. An hour gave this one more aromatics. Cashews, peanuts, rosemary, overripe yellow fruits. The entry was surprisingly dense and full bodied. Palate rather equal to the nose. Finishes with a little more acidity than I thought it would. Went well with an eclectic group of tacos which brought out a kinds of things here. — 8 hours ago

Had this at Capitale Grill, and it showed better then than now. Still enjoyable, but it chased the Morgado - dumb on my part. Above cellar temp, its showing a little more personality. At the right price, it’s a buy to try. — 17 days ago

Zio Tony Ranch "Gianna Marie" Syrah 2013

9.2

I’m finding more and more appreciation for Martinelli’s Syrahs. This is obviously young, and it only spent about 30mins in the decanter before I poured my first glass. Royal purple in the glass. Wonderful aromatics of savory and herbal spices...charcoal embers with bacon fat, accompanied by currant and underripe blackberries. Lifted acidity on the palate giving the profile of this wine the ability to wear its almost 15% ABV well. Dusty dark fruits alongside bayleaf, and pepper dusted cedar. Hold. — 8 days ago

Moran Manor

Anagram Red Blend 2007

Earth, wet stone, black plums, tart, light tannins, skinny legs and an overall good wine! This one is ready to open now and with just a short decant. I would classify this one as Cab Light. Enjoy! — 22 days ago

Really nice California Cab Franc. A little hot, but maintains its spice, verve and herbaceousness. Pretty. — 22 days ago
