The Prisoner Wine Company

Saldo California Zinfandel 2019

Actually a blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Cab and Zin. This wine is extremely dark with notes on the nose of black cherry, anise, smoke and spice. The palate is rich and dark. Blackberry, licorice, allspice, cinnamon and black pepper. The finish is not too long, but it is full of sweet oak spice while it's there. The tannins are a bit toothy until it has been poured for a while. — 8 days ago

Sanguis

Loner Favonius Chardonnay

Not the W10, Better than expected, its the loner Favonius Mag, definitely a 2nd day wine. The pith & grapefruit really hit you on day one.

94The Wine Advocate
...expressive pink grapefruit, guava and pineapple notes, plus suggestions of baking bread, marzipan, ginger and honeycomb...medium-bodied palate...elegant and perfumed...nice creamy texture, with loads of tropical fruit and savory flavors, finishing with great length.

93Vinous / IWC
Super-ripe apricot, orchard fruit, yellow flowers and new oak all blossom in this creamy, super-expressive Chardonnay. Large-scaled and rich...

93Wine Enthusiast
...mandarin orange pith character and a warming sandalwood spice. It's very fresh...bright on the palate, with pink grapefruit, squeezed lemon and lime skin toward the finish.

92Jeb Dunnuck
...notes of crushed citrus, lemon curd, and orchard fruits, and is juicy, vibrant, and crisp on the palate...notable purity, and a great finish.

Westport Rivers

Brut Robert James Russell RJR Champagne Blend 2009

Another solid vintage of this consistently excellent New England bubbly! Intense Aromas and flavors of baked apples with hints of grapefruit and vanilla. Dark gold color. Beautiful mousse and consistent tiny bubbles with pallet cleansing acidity. Buttery/creamy texture. So well made. Thank You, John P. — a day ago

The Lost Abbey

Noble Tendencies Czech-Style Pilsner

One of the top three pilsners I've come across in San Diego County craftland...the other two being Modern Times Ice and Pure Project Rain. Delicious, crushable and with a parting crispiness on the finish. 16oz can. — 3 days ago

California Syrah 2020

Lovely glou syrah from Arnot-Roberts (the entry bottling) — blackberry, hint of smoke, forest floor, soft, excellent balance & a tingle on the tongue. Juicy & lovely with food. #arnotroberts — 8 days ago

Penfolds

Bin 600 California Cabernet Shiraz 2018

For our Thanksgiving Dinner yesterday one of the wines we had the pleasure of opening was the 2018 Penfolds Bin 600 Cabernet Shiraz. A California wine 20 years in the making. Cabernet Sauvignon from all around Sonoma and Shiraz from the Camatta Hills Vinyard in the Paso Robles area. A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Shiraz.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black currant, spice, chocolate, herbal notes, eucalyptus, leather and earth.

On the palate is black cherry, blackberry, spice, clove, licorice, black pepper, savory smokey meat and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied with medium+ acidity and medium+ fine tannins that gives a ling black fruit earthy finish. As yesterday was a day to give thanks for which I am sure we were all thankful for many reasons, family, friends, life and so much more. Please stay safe and healthy and look to the future with many thanks. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Clos du Val

Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim. Not showing age at all.

Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, cooked strawberries, spices, cedar, vanilla, licorice, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, light vegetables, pencil lead, peppercorn, leather and coffee.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke, peppercorn, pencil lead and dark coffee.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, and better with airtime.

This 6 years old is still young, but already enjoyable. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

This is from a great vintage and it is showing beautifully right now.

Nicely balanced and fruit forward.
Loved the nose once it opens up.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, so be patient.

Robert Parker 90 points.

Thanks Elvira and David for sharing this with me.

Tasty and spicy. Delicious, rich and opulent.

A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak barrels (66% new).

14.7% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$50.
