Grower's Reserve California Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Color of grayish purple. Quite clear. Nose of tobacco leaves, grape juice, flowering note, some spice, strength of alcohol, and a bit plum. Taste of strawberry syrup, quite sweet, no tannins, a bit zesty rind, and some more ripe grapes and lychees. Aftertaste of some more zest and grapes. Average. — 6 days ago

Reserve Lot# 195 Red Hills Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Color of dull purple, bubbly. Nose of plenty of tobacco, charcoal and burned wood, barbecue and hickory, pretty unique, some dark fruits notes but not apparent. Taste of sweet dark fruits like sweet cherry, plus the BBQ notes simile to the nose and mellow tannins. A bit dried strawberry and bourbon note, and some more bittersweet zest. Aftertaste of some more BBQ note, tannins, sweetness, and tobacco. I kind of like it. — a month ago

Reserve Lot# 213 Chalk Hill Merlot 2018

This Chalk Hill Sonoma actually. Smells zingy and fresh. Some herbs and black currants. Flavors are nice deep, complex and bright. Some menthol and wood oils. This has all the extra zip of Merlot. A bit too much oak on the back end. It’s good stuff. Juicy and highly drinkable, but some things to ponder too. — a month ago

Reserve Lot #140 Carneros Pinot Noir 2018

Great buy on an excellent PN for $10 at TJs. Light color, taste with some tangy berries but mild tannins. Better after breathing and with food. Yum, going back for more. — a month ago
