I forgot to post this one from a couple weeks back. New to me, but I think this is from one of the Sebastianis. The two most obvious notes I can recall about this wine were the following: it was varietally correct and tasted like it was from Knights Valley, which I always associate plush, lush, velvety fruit. It wasn’t soul stirring but this would undoubtedly be a huge crowd pleaser. File this one away as an option that most people would probably get into; and that’s meant to be a compliment. — 10 days ago
A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, blended then aged for 24 months in 50% new and 50% once-used American oak. Deep Ruby with slight purple hue color, youthful aromas of black fruit, sweet cacao and complex spice. On the palate flavors of rich ripe juicy berries and cherries, a core of sweet fruit with oak and vanilla notes. The wine has nicely integrated firm and graceful tannins on a long finish. This wine is displaying primary fruits on its ending and just beginning to develop some secondary aging, has a long way age and develop, but very approachable to enjoy now.

Tonight I have chosen the 2015 Mount Peak Winery Sentinel Cabernet Sauvignon. Sourced 50% from Sonoma County and 50% from Napa County.
The nose has beautiful black fruit throughout, sweet black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, lavender, milk chocolate, mint and wet gravel.
The palate reveals juicy black fruit, black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, spice, violet, graphite and a nice earth component.
This wine is full bodied with a sophisticated mouth feel, medium + acidity and medium + mouth coating sandy tannins leading right into a long black fruit finish. The weekend is just around the corner and let's all have a great time, just be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 20 days ago
