Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

Beta Wine

Montecillo Vineyard Moon Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Classic Cabernet, red-fruited, cassis, pencil lead, wet earth, but in a medium-bodied package with silky tannin. This is really charming. Hope there is a new release soon! — 9 days ago

Pied a Terre

Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Deep dark color. Spicy, and herby on the nose and palate. Just a touch of oak. Very little sweetness, which I don't mind. I can tell this is a Sonoma Cab and not a Napa Cab. Let it open up and breathe for an hour, it will get better. — 4 days ago

Decoy

Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Real easy to like. Black cherries, plums and blackberries, light spice, that smoothly blend with mild tannins but long finish — 6 days ago

Frank Family Vineyards

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Frank Family 2015 cab... Should I say more? Big black berry beginning with a buttery middle. Waves of vanilla and chocolate consume the palate. Oaky dry finish. No tannins to speak of. AMAZING! — 10 days ago

Beringer Vineyards

Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1994

Alive and kicking. 25 years old and really not showing it. These 90s Napa Cabernets are really impressing me. This one seemed to have a nose of jasmine and blackberry and a little bit spicy. Entry was mature ripe blackberry, black cherry. The middle started to have a little bit of olive and green pepper showing up with some truffles. The finish was very soft, tannins just about gone. Really neat bottle, surprise pull from Dan! I think this one is beyond peak, headed down the backside of the hill slowly, but probably a solid 5 years left. If you have any of these, pop and enjoy them because this was a treat! — 21 days ago

Good to see this @Mark Turner but were they all out of the same cellar or not - I swear the 97 silver oak we had in Des Moines was awesome so asking to frame the testing - but love this stuff so bravo bud

Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House

Private Reserve Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

I can always count on Del Frisco’s and their private label wines to really make an entrance. This Sonoma County Cab, made exclusively for the Double Eagle Steakhouse, was developed by Paul Hobbs and is produced/bottled at his CrossBarn Winery. This is a solid selection with loads of deep, brooding dark fruits, mint, Christmas spice cake, figs, molasses, dark chocolate, and coffee grounds. Great with a burger 👌🏻 even better with a steak, I imagine. — 16 days ago

Totally agree. Always order a bottle of this when we go there. Haven’t had the new offering since they made the shift from Foley to Hobbs. Looking forward to trying it.

I wish I had tried the Double Eagle’s Foley offering so I could compare/contrast. Think the Grille made the shift from Foley to Hobbs as well? If so then I look forward to trying their new stuff.

Yes, I believe that is correct, though I think the DFG Foley wine was more of a red blend than Cab (if memory serves me correct?). Love both restaurants!
