Mt. Veeder Zinfandel 2013

I am a perpetual groupie of mountain wine and the Mt Veeder definitely got my attention. Sure enough there’s a mayacamas connection with this winemaker. Happy to report it doesn’t disappoint on the rugged mountain character. Tannins are burly but this is less about ripe jammy fruit and more about high toned raspberry, violets, hibiscus, blood orange, leather and dried herbs. The mayacamas of Zinfandel? Sure. Right up there with the best of Ridge and Bedrock on my list of top Zins — 3 days ago

Coeur Napa County Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

That's a big weighty Cab. Loads of dark cherry, blackberries and some licorice mid palate. Sets you up for the lengthy finish. — 14 days ago

No. 77 Napa Valley Reserve Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

It's definitely time for some good Cabernet on this #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nice one from Napa Valley.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish/ brick rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, blackberries, licorice, wood, light vanilla, tobacco, spices, light earth, pencil lead, chocolates, coffee, black pepper and herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, light cedar, vegetables, pencil lead, light vanilla, tobacco, herbs, licorice, earth, peppercorn, espresso, chocolates and spices.

Medium on the finish with fine grained tannins and chili pepper.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Elegant and smooth with a nice mouthfeel. Showing nice complexity at this point.

Needs an hour of airtime to open up properly, and bring out the complexity. This 9 year old is not from a good vintage, but it is drinking very nicely now.

A gentler version of the big Napa Cabernets. Subdued with lots of earth notes, at this point. I really enjoyed smelling on it for a long time.

A nice wine to pair with food or to have all by itself. I paired it with a Pepperoni pizza, but it was really nice with the brie cheese too.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$95.

Space And Time Chateauneuf-Du-Pott Vineyard Red Blend 2016

The 2016 Space and Time is a phenomenal wine. Beautifully made - floral nose and fairly full body mouthfeel with a lot of finesse. It’s so young but you should definitely not shy away from trying it now. I’m sure it will age really well though but I’m not sure I’ll be able to save mine. — 16 days ago

Mt. Veeder Chardonnay 2007

‘07 vintage. PnP at about 50F. Burnt Carmel nose with slight oxidized notes. Oxidation is more pronounced on the palette. Still shows rich acid and moderate tension, but not much else. For me this is interesting but past its prime. — 3 days ago
