Winemaker's Select Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Good Thanksgiving appetizer. Clear yellow and slight green tints but just screaming tomato vine and freshly mowed grass on the nose. Pink grapefruit and tart limes are the stand out flavors. — 13 days ago

Barrel Select Chardonnay 2019

9.0

Mr. Staran feels this wine is not dry, although claimed by the sommelier to have vanila note, Mr. Staran disagrees. Acidity is on a higher side, oops after discovering of Acidity, Mr. Staran somewhat felt the vanila hint as well, but its mild. I asked for more inputs but Mr. Staran replied me "nothing much". I guess Mr. Staran has a love hate relationship with this wine. I wonder why he rated it high though, maybe its the bourbon barrel affect on Indians. — 2 months ago

Special Selection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Not how I remember Special Select...now made in the over ripe dare I say it 689 style. Rounded, jammy with a lingering finish. Drink now, not built for aging. — 22 days ago

Barrel Select California Cabernet Sauvignon

Had the 2019 vintage tonight with some fresh pasta and shrimp at our fav Italian place Delicious Cab with fruit forward flavor and a nice, easy finish. The legs were long and lush. So glad we were able to try this tonight- I would definitely recommend this as a regular bottle in the rotation! — 2 months ago

Hillside Select Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

After a coffee chat at work yesterday that ended discussing Hillside Select I was motivated to open one for the holiday weekend. Initially I was very disappointed as the wine was flat and uninspiring considering the pedigree and price tag. Read some reviews that this 2013 needs A LOT of air and sure enough after hours the wine began to evolve and markedly improve. It is an intense wine that lingers in the mouth for a long time. Smooth tannins, red fruit and tobacco flavors. Not my most favorite wine and not at the $229 I paid, but nonetheless a very good wine once it had the chance to get some air for a few hours — 13 days ago
