Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

This is a delicious Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast. Rich, complex and elegant.

Light burgundy in color with a wide reddish rim.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Showing red currants, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, light vegetables, tobacco, chocolates, light barnyard, coffee and peppercorn.

This Single Vineyard is nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself as a sipping wine.

This 8 year old is peaking now, although it will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.

Thank you Scott for sharing.

Wine Spectator 90 points. Robert Parker 94 points.

Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

WOW!!! Beautiful ruby color with a bit of garnet around the rim. Beautiful aromas of black fruit, rose petals, vanilla and spices. Black cherry, plum, pepper spice fill the pallet. Touch of eucalyptus on the finish. Elegant and refined. Tannins are there but firmly in check. Outstanding! Thank you so much Kasey and Petey! — a day ago

Barrel Selection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing black fruits with cedar, licorice, vanilla, spices, peppercorn, red chili pepper, tobacco leaf, dark chocolates, herbs and earth.

Nice finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Still young, but already enjoyable.

This 4 year old will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime.

Nicely balanced with a soft and spicy mouthfeel, and good by itself as a sipping wine.

Mendoza Cabernet Franc 2017

Mostly Cabernet Franc (92%) with just a touch (8%) of Malbec. Dark ruby color with a light lavender colored rim. Intense aromas of black fruit, black pepper and a whole lot of expensive coffee notes. Dark fruits also dominate the pallet. Hints of menthol, dark chocolate and black pepper as well. Nicely balanced and well structured. — 20 days ago

9.0

Nose of ripe plums, blackberries, meats, vanilla and violets. Dark red with slight fading and brown tints around the rim. Creamy and remarkably delicate for the nose, rounded fruits, acidity doing well for balance, slight tightness still in the middle and proper finish of fruits and red/violet florals. Woody notes, grilled meats, slight wet stones. — a day ago

Janeen Proprietary Red Blend 2016

It is time for a tasty Cabernet for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with a great mouthfeel.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, Indian spices, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn, coffee, light cola and pencil lead.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This 6 year old from the great 2016 vintage is showing great complexity now. A gorgeous wine that will age nicely in the next 20 years.

Delicious right out of the bottle and better with airtime.

I had it a year ago, and it was delicious then, but now it is so much better. What a wonderful surprise.

Rich, opulent, spicy and fruit forward.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. A great sipping wine too.

A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.

15.2% alcohol by volume.

96 points.
