Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

Immortal Estate

Slope Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Good solid Cabernet with all the fruit and proper restraint. Some gravelly and earthy tones keep this in check nicely. Ready to drink, but give it 10-15mins in the glass to really enjoy. Paired with leftovers from a block of rump roast. — 3 days ago

Pride Mountain Vineyards

Sonoma/Napa County Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Initial open. Dry. Lighter, dark fruits. Needs time. Baking spice finish. A little bit of sharpness. Really not special.
Two hours later, the wine has developed a lot more. It’s drinking beautifully after about 3 hours of decanting. The usual pride notes are coming out. I would highly recommend not wasting this if you don’t have time to decant 9.0+ Probably a 9.1 but I was way too tired today ;8.9 before decant

This was the winery back in 1998 which moved me to start researching wine in more detail. Relatively speaking, this is still so youthful. Back in the day when Silver Oak didn’t deploy mechanical harvesting at that time. This is just incredible. Still fruit-forward and opulent. Look at the color in the glass - very little visual bricking. Some tertiary notes of leather and herbs. This is a beauty to behold. Drink or hold this vintage. — 2 days ago

Reisacher Estate

Inaugural Release Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Wow. For those of you who remember Delectus wines, this is the first vintage of Gerhard Reisacher’s new operation in Knight’s Valley...and it is a winner. Intense aromas of cassis, black currant, and bittersweet chocolate, this has a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet and perfectly integrated tannins, and a long, elegant finish. Easily on par with the best wines he ever made at Delectus, if you liked those wines then you’ve got to try this! — 3 days ago

Ravenswood Winery

Gregory Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Fantastic aged California cabernet. Blind I would have said Ridge Monte Bello from the mid 90s. It possesses those red cabernet fruit notes, eucalyptus, touches of fennel. Beautiful acidity and nice long pleasing finish. Plenty of depth and extract. Harkens to the good old days. — 12 days ago

Has aged well and not too strong on the oak or tannins. Love these wines with some age on them. — 3 days ago

9.5

Smells very deep and rich, fruity, (at first I thought grape syrup). Tastes quite sweet, interesting flavors with a zing at the end. Aftertaste has a 回甘 sort of sweetness. Had with Sous vide rosemary-thyme short ribs and potato-kale mash. Got for 25$ at Costco (on sale) because the guy in front of us at checkout was buying a whole case. we figured he must know what’s up, so c ran to grab a bottle. — 13 days ago
