Tanbark Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Shay A

July 4th Friday was a total blowout! Killer bottles one after another. Here are just a few of the bottles we all enjoyed!

Haven’t had many Tanbark Hill bottles from Togni, but did not expect there to be so much spiced meat. Almost an overload of black pepper crusted cured meats. Very CdP like. Tart black cherry and old herbal spices.

Love Togni wines. Often off the radar, but always amazing

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Deeper, a bit more intense than the last. I think Almost Famous with this wine is a better fit. Stillwater. Dark fruit. This is better than I thought it would be. Philip Seymour Hoffman so damn good. “You’ll meet them all again on their long journey to the middle...” — 3 months ago

Lot of green pepper going on up front. Almost over powering for a 14 year old wine. Starting to open up to clean black fruit — a month ago

Zakin Family Estate

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The 2016 Zakin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolutely brilliant wine that was sourced from the Zakin’s southwest facing property on Howell Mountain, situated between 1,250 and 1,450 feet. The vineyard consists of three unique blocks: The Pool Block, The Upper Vineyard, and the Back Blocks, which are managed by Jim Barbour. The wine itself is simply fantastic, as it slowly begins to unwind in the glass it releases stunning aromas ripe cherries, red/dark currants, intense florals and dried spices which are underlined by a light cedar note and a lovely mineral character of crushed stones and hints of graphite dust. On the palate this medium to full-bodied red shows wonderful elegance and vibrancy, with a bright core of beautifully ripe red and dark currants, fresh florals and minerals that are framed by gorgeous velvety tannins. It continues to impress with its remarkable structure, as it all comes together seamlessly with wonderful focus and balance leading up to the precise finish that displays tremendous length. The Zakin’s along with winemaker Philip Melka and his team have crafted an utterly captivating wine, which was built to age and should continue to evolve marvelously for many years to come. — a month ago

@Shay A one wine and small production. The vineyard is located near; Dana Estate’s Lotus Vineyard, Cakebread’s Dancing Bear Ranch and growers that sell their fruit to Lokoya. Philippe Melka overseas the winemaking but, not day to day processes.

Riserva Costasera Amarone Classico Corvina Blend 2013

Pricey bottle and fucking fabulous. Not worth the money unless you’re flush with cash or have a good reason to celebrate. I’m obviously in the latter camp as I’ll never be ‘flush with cash’ (1-Muz, delectable review, 2019) but I certainly had reason to celebrate! Sure, my leg is fucked and I’m on pain meds but I refrained from taking meds all night so I could enjoy the company of birthday boy, bassist and sound tech extrodinaire (French cuz he French) snaps Ducharme and later, best-dude, drummer, business partner and brother Philip nauseous at local champion pub, Arcadia and then truly begin the personal celebration... the wine is flavourful and hearty but smooth, much like myself after a bottle of wine, and I enjoyed it with my girlfriend after first having a glass of wine from a $20 bottle (plus three air miles... I’m saving for a special trip). I cooked steaks and steamed green beans and cauliflower which turned out extremely well, however, she may have completely changed how I eat steak from now on, which I’m ambivalent about... I know I’m not perfect but I don’t want to change my essence, I’m still trying to decide whether an Italian style of eating steak infringes upon my authenticity. We finished the bottle after dinner obviously having drank most of it with the food, and talked about the food, wine and life. This is another italianism I seem to have picked up, talking about food... so you can see why I’m cautious! I haven’t gotten to the reason for celebrating yet but my girlfriend got a new job (sadly, in another city...)! Conversation was mostly positive and optimistic which is fabulous because I’m still fearful of the future and what being apart this next year will mean for us. She went to bed early because of the heavy food and drink and the business of her last week; she also taught the first class of one of her spring courses this evening so I may not recommend this wine to dudes that simply want the ‘score’ although taking everything into account, the wine was only part of the reason... I stayed up later playing guitar and painting and contemplating the future with a slightly cheaper but quality Malbec and took my meds finally. This made me slightly tragic and sad but not so much that I couldn’t still be optimistic and hopeful for the future. If life is complicated but worth celebrating, I highly recommend this wine. It’s probably the second or third best bottle I’ve ever had and was worth the cost considering the circumstances. — 4 months ago
