Silver Mountain Vineyards

Smith Madrone

Spring Mountain District Riesling 2016

This is a very tasty Riesling from Napa Valley.

Medium-bodied with medium-plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

This 6 year old is showing lemons, yellow apples, petrol, plastic, cream, earth, minerals, herbs, sea salt and white pepper.

I had it a year ago, and it seems like it is less fruit forward now.

Spicy and entertaining. Good by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and better when not too cold.

12.8% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$34.

Piedra Hill Vineyard (W.H. Smith)

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Trying an aged Howell Moutain. Ripe blackberry, prunes, bramble, leather, melty rubber, gas station fumes, candied pecans and cola on the nose. Mellowed and integrated ripe blackberry, prunes, char, vanilla on the palate, with some herbal spice and black tea on a nice long finish. Looks like folks weren’t impressed by the other reviews but I really liked it. :) — 3 days ago

9.3

Further improved on day 2.
Lots of oak treatment on the nose and palate. Tannins are still quite robust, along with the acidity. Best Lamborn in a while. Drink or hold this vintage.

(Silver Label) Jumilla Monastrell 2019

Last night I opened this 2019 Juan Gil Silver Label Monastrell. This is from the Bodegas Juan Gil Jumilla, Spain, 100% Monastrell (Mourvèdre).

On the nose there is black plum, blackberry, blueberry, black pepper, violet, gravel and earth.

On the palate there is blackberry, blueberry, plum, black cherry, black pepper, spice, soft oak, gravel and earth.

This is a full bodied wine with a smooth sweet juicy mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium supple tannins that move smoothly into a long black & red fruit earthy finish. We are on another weekend and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Arcudi

Black Sears Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Birthday and Father’s Day celebrations. Special treat from a client. Black Sears Vineyard living up to all I have heard. Rich dark fruit, blackberry pie in a glass, soft tannins, a very balanced wine, served with smoked bbq beer can chicken, roasted veggies and potatoes. Spices from the chicken pairing very well. What a nice treat. Well done Mr. Arcudi! — 5 days ago
