Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Ron R

In the glass, you can see the deep extraction. The nose displays blueberry pie and maple syrup. Palate is dense and focused. Tannins create an upright structure, combined with supple acidity. Finishes textured and sweet. Overall, a thrilling presentation. — 6 days ago

Red Blend 2016

Nice red blend from Morgado! A little lean when compared the outpost cab we had before it.. but that’s probably not a fair comparison! Solid wine nonetheless👍🏻 — 8 months ago

The Other Howell Mountain Petite Sirah 2015

Couldn’t help myself. Silky smooth. 15.5% abv, but you hardly notice it. So ridiculously purple, so ridiculously good — a year ago


Immigrant True Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

This 2012 BDX blend could easily go another 7 years. It is still bound up (aeration required) and seething with intense blackberries, black currant and firm tannins. After mild aeration, the darker fruit gives way to a little bit of ripe cherry, tobacco and some faint but of vanilla. After heavy aeration, the vanilla comes out more noticeably on the nose, dominating everything else basically, with a hint of cherry at the end. On the palette the jamminess starts to show through, with ripe cherry and red plum overshadowing the tobacco and finishing with a strong white pepper note. — a month ago

Sugarloaf Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2014

Because who doesn’t love to celebrate national Cab Franc day? @rudiuswines is Brittany & Jeff Ames label. Jeff was an early understudy to Thomas Brown, working on Schrader, Maybach, and Outpost amongst others while he developed his own client list, including Tor Kenward, Boich, and Anthem. It’s worth noting that the wines Jeff has produced for Tor have been some of my favorites for at least a decade.

The 2014 Rudius Cabernet Franc Sugarloaf Vineyard Napa Valley envelopes your plate with a captivating display of mouthwatering raspberry, savory loam, sweet tobacco, and just the right hint of bell pepper before the cocoa powder dusted finish rocks your world. Delicious is an understatement. This was so spectacular I opened it two nights in a row (run don’t walk to Sunshine and steal it for $40). #delicious

Aida Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The 2015 was paired with “Braised Short Rib over Pomm Purée Dressed with Au Ju.”

Had to take speed notes on this one as we were running late to Outpost.

The nose shows beautiful ripe fruits of; dark cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, big plum, beautiful medium spice, beautiful baking spices, fresh violets and purple flowers.

The body is full and fresh. Tannins are soft and round. The structure & tension big. Well balanced. The acidity nice and round. The finish is beautiful elegant rich and even start to finish.
