Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1991

Popped for our 30th and taken to Sons & Daughters in SF. Great young, dark purple color. Exotic nose. Notes of plum, black cherry, some eucalyptus, mocha, old leather, dark moist earth, some dark chocolate and some anise. It’s a kaleidescape of smells. Still rich and silky in the mouth. So much fruit, with structure to match. Such a great unicorn wine. — 22 days ago

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014


Perfumed nose of bramble fruit, cherry, cedar, tomato leaf, hint of dark chocolate, white pepper. Beautiful and light on its fit at mid palate. Ends in a lingering finish. Great stuff. — 13 days ago

Dry Suisun Valley White Zinfandel 2019


I really like this for so many reasons. #1 the bottle/jug. #2 the oldskool retro label #3 it’s a dry white #zinfandel #4 it has so much typicity of Zin on the nose and on the palate I find it somewhere between a #rosé and a light red. — 9 days ago

Fun, had me stoked for a Rubired review (same jug bottling), but down with White Zin too.

Monte Rosso Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

This week our group tasted nine Cabs from arround the world, all from the 2001. Really interesting what 20 years of aging can do depending on the terroir. This T-Vine came in #1 — a month ago
