Kaley Elizabeth Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

My third bottle of the ‘13, this one about a year after my last. Each time it gets better. Fruit is big and ripe, black and blue. Tannins smooth. Structure is solid. Nice long finish. A short decant is still recommended. — a month ago

Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2000

Should of used the Durand🙄,
Wine made the journey though, just a little air to blow off the age & you’re set. Reminds me of the 2012 Rudius Knockmore

Savory Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Both bold and easy on the palette. The incense is pleasant. It fills the mouth well. I might put this wine in the $70-$90 price range, yet the taste is quite fulfilling and we’re not left thinking the price was unreasonable. — 2 years ago

Farella Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Opulent, ornate. A deep ruby with thick viscous legs: 15.5 ABV. The nose is a bit dominated by new oak, leaning towards cedar. Otherwise, blueberry and blackberry are quite present, as are floral (rose) notes. On the palate it's quite delicious, big juicy fruit with a slight acidic bite. Medium plus bodied, quite hot on the alcohol. Nice subtle tannins, and a super long finish.

This is very very good now, especially stacked up against massive fat (e.g., ribeye). Over time it will be a competition between the high alcohol and the soft tannins. I say hold for 2-3 years for maximum benefit.

P.S. This is my first exposure to this winery. I have a case and will update notes over time. So far I really like it... But not enough to do housework for

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
