The Essentials 29 Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2015

15’ Vineyard 29 SB. PNP- This SB plays in the deep end. A massive structured SB that’s not for everybody. It screams new world to me. Very much enjoyed it & would absolutely purchase it again.
The nose isn’t shy & comes out to play. Big exotic & tropical fruits of pineapple, peach, tangerine, nice streak of slate that runs through it. Followed by moderate/light acidity. Perfect time to drink!!

Spottswoode

Family Estate Grown St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

B
10

1997 Spottswoode Cabernet. Opened and poured. Served with burgers and homemade fries. A little flat with a sharp finish at first. Not sure if it might have been stored incorrectly. However, it opened up as we ate and all that unpleasantness blew off. Blackberries, blueberries, cassis, vanilla, leather, spices. Should have decanted before serving. — 9 days ago

Support your local restaurants! Beautiful Berkshire pork chop dinner from the Selland restaurant group!

1.5 hour decant( lots of chunky sediment). A splendid dark ruby red color. On the nose: black fruit, floral, black olives, with a hit of pine/menthol. Taste: cedar, black cherry, licorice, with a chocolate metallic finish. A soft wine..tannins mostly resolved...a medium body, medium acidity, with a medium plus finish.

Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Delectable Wine
9.4

Bright, dark ruby. Very dark, primary, restrained aromas of inky cassis, tar (from the Petit Verdot?), cocoa powder, crushed stone and scorched earth. At once fleshy and powerful, showing strong primary fruit for the vintage along with mineral and bitter chocolate notes. As dense and youthfully imploded as it is, this opulent Cabernet benefits from harmonious acidity and its firm, building tannins are not at all dry or hard. Finishes with outstanding thickness and length. This, too, will need time to reveal itself and is likely to be long-lived. Emerson described 2010 as "a big, structured, later-ripening year."
