Oakville Zinfandel 2017

This is a delicious Zinfandel from Napa Valley. Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, chocolates, tobacco, spices, mocha, black coffee, cola and peppercorn.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with a tangy finish.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly, balance itself out and remove the jaminess. Good right out of the bottle too.

Very enjoyable by itself or with food like a burger and fries.

Aged for 12 months in American oak barrels. 100% Zinfandel grapes.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Fantastic depth, complexity and balance. Just kept evolving all night after a 5 hour decant. Several tasting notes are out there. Vinous (Galloni) note is right on. The predominant fruit has a nice cherry core, with all kinds of flavors riffing off of it. It’s best years are still ahead. — 11 days ago

@Mike R and @Eric Guido definitely an appropriate term! It was drinking beautifully. Last time I had this vintage was about a year ago and it felt quite a bit more wound up. It’s added a lot since then.

Typically a producer that makes it tough to differentiate between AVA and vintage, this one’s a bit of an exception. Bright cola, dirt, cherry, and flesh. Really good bottle. — 9 days ago

Private Reserve Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

1 hour decant. A distinguished inky dark crimson color. Vinified in Sacramento (yes!)with premium Oakville grapes (To Kalon anyone) at a great price! One of the nicest vitners you can meet and he makes excellent wine to boot. On the nose: sweet perfumed almond milk chocolate, floral, smoked meat and slight menthol hit on the end. Taste: pencil lead, blackberry, chocolate espresso, with a vanilla dark cherry long finish...yum..a velvety full body wine ready to go another 10 years but drinking great now! — 9 days ago

This is an incredible wine. Decanted for 2 hours and it was amazing. The blue fruit and tannin were in harmony. This wine can easily be consumed over the next 20 years. — 6 days ago
