Laurel Glen Vineyard

Sonoma Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Confected black cherry nose. Blackberries, playdough, fragrant flowers. Very gentle tannins, robust streaky acids, practically translucent dark red fruit on the palate. Hitting a nice spot but maybe 5 years off from peak. — 4 days ago

Benziger Family Winery

Tribute Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

Blend of Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot & Petit Verdot, very dark Ruby with aromas of complex berries and sweet earthy spices. On the palate ripe blackberry and black cherry flavors with ample minerality and soft smooth tannins. Long finish, well balanced with moderate acidity, ending with cacao, oak and cinnamon character. Less than 2000 cases made if you are lucky to find one, aged well. — 20 days ago

Chappellet

Mountain Cuvée Proprietor's Blend 2018

Dark purple with a near black core. Inviting nose and full-bodied palate of blueberry compote, black currant, and blackberry cobbler all in a balsam bowl. Medium tannins and sneaky medium acidity from entry to lengthy dark finish. Now this is a nice example of what California does best. Smooth enough for a sipper but with enough structure to accompany light to medium cuts of beef. Put it up against any modern “cult” blend and it will show beautifully. Drink now through 2023. — 18 days ago

Vineyard 7 & 8 (Seven and Eight)

Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Medium ruby with a nose of black cherries, anise, wet gravel, mocha, pipe tobacco, and toffee. Full-bodied with smooth velvety tannins. I think this wine is in its prime. I love the bold, full mouthfeel on this wine. Nice, smooth finish. Birthday wine! — 2 days ago

Cimarossa Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

#AgedWineTuesday

This 12 year old Napa Cabernet is drinking so very nicely now.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, chocolates, cola, tobacco, coffee and peppercorn.

Full bodied rich, extracted and delicious.

Medium acidity with a long finish and soft tannins.

Dry on the palate and very fruity.

This Single Vineyard could age for another 10 years, but I really enjoyed it at this stage.

Wine spectator's 97 points.

Very enjoyable and yummy. Good by itself as a sipping wine.

A very small production of only 9 barrels.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

$155 (current vintage).

Great Q, @Alexandre Pagliano. They have more similarities than differences. The Larkmead is more suave, while the Bevan displays a more bold, riper and tannic expression. Net net, I consider Larkmead to be a more sophisticated wine. It’s also a cab, as opposed to a blend.

I have Larkmead on my mind. I should have referenced Cade. Apologies for my error.

Barnett Vineyards

Rattlesnake Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Continuing the theme of Napa cabs with some real age - out of a 375ml. Rattlesnake is always a show stopper with that unique cotton candy nose. At 16 years old it is just spectacular with leather, pencil lead and blueberry compote finishing with a little hoisin. — a day ago
