Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Deep Ruby, developing aromas of ripe red/black berry fruits, notes of oak, cacao/vanilla spice with slight floral, aged for 26 months in 100% new French oak. On the palate layered flavors of blackberry, black cherry & fig with black pepper, cinnamon & chalkiness. Very fine soft tannins, good structure, balanced well with acidity, long finish, ready to Sip now, ending with a great mouthfeel and sweet spicy fruit character. Decant for an hour to bring out depth, will age well, Very Nice! Tasting Sample! — 2 days ago

Impeccable balance in an off dry style, but bit sweeter than most feinherb. Too bad there isn't more wine like this from Napa these days. — 5 days ago

Ok peeps, many people have asked for more deets regarding our little cellar...
1.8m x 0.6m x 2.25m. The floor is Portuguese black slate (1cm thick). Floor, walls and ceiling are insulated with high-density foam, which has a low thermal conductivity. Chiller is housed remotely. Ducting pulls clean air from outside, and dumps exhaust air outside. Basically, everything is custom - my design, and a great contractor realized our dream.
@Mo Salem was instrumental with renovating our home, and the germ of the idea came from him.
This wine big and bold. Visually show its age. Cinnamon, cloves and pepper define the nose and palate. The oak monster is evident on the mid palate. Great tannins and complimentary acidity. This will sail on for another 5 years, but best consumed now.

Jauma

Disco Special Grenache Shiraz

Funky fresh pizzazz this deceptively complex wine. One I could drink on the reg. Alive and full of character. Well balanced. Medium acidity, loose tannins, medium bodied that errs on the lighter side. Earth and berry twist. Might as well get your disco ball out — 6 days ago

Excellent producer - this is just behind the cab franc for me. Light on its feet with a slurry of red fruits. — 10 days ago

Smells of ripe peach orchards

A lovely flavor profile of peaches, pepper, honeyed cashew, apricot Close to the pit. The minerality pushes its way from beginning to end, then past that.
A delicious Vinho Verde, with unique flavor, personality, and one that I need to return to. Excuse me.
