To someone living outside of California this is the quintessential Napa/Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon. With wonderful aromas, intriguing depth of fruit and character, rich mouth feel, round and polished leaving a lingering smooth finish. All this and reasonably priced making this as most Cabernets from these two regions real crowd pleasers. Cheers from Canada 🇺🇸🇨🇦🍷 — 18 days ago
Not sure where ‘Owl Ridge’ is but it’s a cute critter label. Color is nice. Bit of a red rust edge to the deep maroon center. Nose is elegant. Leather in the sun and berry preserves. Some pumpkin spice or maybe it’s just nutmeg. Flavors are chewy, savory, and more autumn in the air stuff. Maybe smoke from leaves burning or pies spices used in baking. Has grapes, berries and that stuff too. It’s a nice elegant and tasty Cab from a locale that does them just right. — 5 days ago
Ravenswood single vineyard efforts always deliver beyond expectations. and it’s a great value drinking at half the price of something comparable. I think the Ravenswood mass produced stuff subsidizes their good stuff. $19 at K&L SF on their old and interesting wall to the far left when you go in. — 19 days ago
@Delectable Wine : This is Theorem’s Moon Mountain District chardonnay. I didn’t see it in the database.
Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.
Theorem was one of our highlights last year, so we made sure a return visit was lined up this year. Base of Diamond Mtn with one of the most beautiful properties I’ve seen. Over the last 12 months, they’ve added a couple new wines (with more to come from Moon Mountain). TRB is the winemaker.
Another new wine to the lineup is the moon Mountain Chardonnay. When comparing to other chardonnays TRB crafts, this site is pulling in more slate/limestone and high acidity, compared to his Sonoma chardonnays that have a lot of oyster shell and tart stone fruits. Very bright and concentrated. Underripe melon, powdered lemon bar, crushed rocks, honeysuckle and wildflowers all reveal themselves. I’d hold this for a few years. — 5 days ago
Dark fruits, strawberry, light oak/vanilla, full bodied, balanced alcohol, moderate to strong tannins on finish, slight “scented marker” finish. — 7 days ago
