Materium Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Time to check in on the 16, 😬😋
Still has some heat to it, but great nose makes up for it. 15 years left easy.

Worth release price but seriously not a $350.00 bottle

EE Tench Vineyard Red Blend 2016

Youthful and exuberant like a golden retriever puppy. Soaring nose of blackberry and blueberry with a hint of espresso. Actually very supple and approachable on the palate. Delicious. — 9 days ago

G Major Seven Study 575 OVX Cabernet Sauvignon

Consumed 01/2020. Received in a shipment but not sure when. I am afraid I have cellared it for too long. The cork broke off and I made a mess getting the cork out so that I could strain it into a decanter. The wine stains are evident on the label.. They use for varietals to make this. At the time that it was released it was phenomenal. But now that I have kept it too long, I would say not as good. I need to drink the rest of it pretty quickly. 14.1% alc/vol.  — 5 days ago

The Reserve To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Even though its a 16, it still has that old school flavor & nose. Wouldn’t spend $150.00-$175.00 for it, but for $99.00 it was worth buying a couple,

Good Merlot. Refined. Paired with grilled fillet and roasted vegetables, finished with a brush of cool Berkshire mountain air. Lovely. — 17 days ago

I would have expected more from this.

@Ron R me too. This followed a knockout Robert Craig Cab - tastebuds were still firing on all cylinders which may have muted the Merlot on the palate. Won’t do that again.

Gargiulo Vineyards

Money Road Ranch Merlot 2014

A 93 now with upside potential. Probably should have left this alone for 2-3 years even after a 30 minute decant. Dirty raspberry pie and black cherry marmelade. Rather sweet open. Herbal middle. Finishes a little off balance but still very full bodied and grippy. Mostly dirty red fruit dominated. Really good but I can imagine how complex this will be in about 5 years. HOLD these. — 17 days ago

Paravines Oakville Red Blend 2012

This Merlot/PV combo is SINGING. Round throughout, medium++ bodied wine. Still has a lot of sweet black cherry cola and blackberry notes throughout. But also has a floral nature on the nose and entry while also seeming to have a little bit of a darker side that permeates towards the finish with an herbal character. A surprising amount of pepper on the finish with tannins that have definitely softened over the years. I think this wine is really ready to drink right now as a pop and pour. I did not decant this one, and I don't think I missed anything by not doing so. One more bottle left. I'm sure it will be opened sooner than later given how this one presented! Will try to look for more as well as I feel this one could go another 7 to 10 years without a doubt! — 18 days ago

Morlet Family Vineyards

Coeur de Vallée Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Weekend T-bone night needs a big red to match. The alcohol felt a tad strong here and this could still use another couple years to settle. Elegant yet powerful fruit and you get some mocha notes too as the wines gets more air. I usually wait 5yrs for a Morlet but could be more patient here. — 20 days ago
