This has been resting in my cellar since release and figured this might be ready to go on the pop and pour. I was wrong. Please don’t misunderstand, it’s a treat to drink, it’s just still very young. So much so, in fact, that it took three days to really begin stretching its legs. Well endowed with fruit, I wouldn’t try again for at least another couple of years. I expect it will probably drink very well for another 10-12 years. — 4 days ago
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, from Moon Mountain and Alexander Valley fruit, is endowed with striking aromatic presence, gorgeous ripe red fruit and fabulous balance. Juicy and wonderfully inviting, the 2017 shows how alluring Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon can be. $24.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2020) — 8 days ago
The sheer beauty of these Aubert wines is that I’m never prepared for what to expect...
@David L introduced wifey and I to this brilliant chard. It glides effortlessly across the nose and palate. For an appellation bottling, this is a reference-point from which to compare the best chards. Homied nose, complimented with lemon oil and barrel toast. Palate presents butterscotch, coconut, and a hint of apricot. Flamboyant for its sheer complexity. Fleshy, yet so refined. Acidity is present, and is tucked in. Please madam, may I have some more??? — 3 days ago
Ripe red and black fruits sweet ripe tannins. It’s a very delicious wine. It seems a little simple though, not much complexity with no tertiary aromas or flavors and the alcohol feeling for me is on the high side. Very good. #redblend #redfruitblackfruit #californiazinfandel #sonomawine — 7 days ago
