Three Valleys Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2020

Round five of blind tasting and we all missed on this. I think a Zinfandel blend is cruel. I swore this was a Sonoma Cab… all those blended varieties proved tricky and the Zinfandel doesn’t stand out on its own. Dark ruby red with dark over ripened and jammy fruits. Smells hot. Also VANILLA. Say that five times. Has some nice bell pepper and green notes, some eucalyptus, balsamic, and a touch of mint. Low tannic levels, moderate acid and body. It’s delicious but tripped us up. — 8 days ago

Too early, these are 8-12 year wines to appreciate

Agree @Paul T- Huntington Beach but I didn’t get to choose for the tasting. In any case, it does seem drinkable now, but certainly has miles to go!

Chateau Montelena

The Montelena Estate Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

Beautiful Cab Sauv from a stellar year in Napa! Can’t beat Montelena for structure, balance and a long shelf life. The only comparable wine (I’ve tasted) from this vintage is Shafer Hillside Select. This wine was fruit forward, mid pallet of aged leather, tobacco, nice tan is and a finish that lasted until the next sip!! Drink now, but would still be a very nice wine 10+ years from now!! — 8 days ago
