River Beauty Syrah 2014

Dense inky purple. Briar, black currant and blackberry notes in nose. Blackberry and mint flavors with a touch of bay leaf. Blackberry, cherry and mint with length in aftertaste. Fine grained tannins, moderate skin astringency initially but soften quickly. Lovely flavor profile, slightly tart but softens — 13 days ago

Columbia Valley Barbera 2013

High acid & sappy red fruit. They are no longer making this wine which is a shame as Barbera works great in Washington, but is understandably hard to sell. Wonderfully bright and fresh. The record is a great one from Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Side one is experimental to an almost ambient degree in parts, while side two feels more straightforward, but has some frankly insane rhythmic interplay between percussion & horn. — 2 days ago

Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Really interesting Cab. Don’t expect a typical Cab taste, this is definitely old vine. Almost coconut on the nose, very different. Not my favorite but still very good. The longer it sits out, I get more chocolate on the palate. — 18 hours ago

Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

This is definitely a little bit of a departure from other Cabernets that were enjoyed tonight. Still extremely elegant. Enjoyed En Magnum. This is 15 years of Columbia Valley excellence. The news on this wine was clove, truffle, black cherry. The entry had a little bit of a bleu cheese, green grapestem, black cherry, fig. The middle is where this one started to settle more to a red and black fruit profile.... but mostly favored the black fruit side of things. Finishes with a little bit of black pepper, with softened tannins that carried it through to the finish. If in 750, I would say it is definitely time to start popping and enjoying these. If it is in Magnum, this is actually a rather enjoyable wine and I feel it will likely develop a bit more. — 15 hours ago

Harrison Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Carménère 2016

Densely loaded and tightly wound right now, the 2016 ‘Harrison Hill’ is a monstrous beast of a Cabernet that needs more than a two hour decant to unwind. Once aroused this leads on beautiful layers of dark fruits, mocha, Creme de cassis and lighter herbal tones. With medium tannins, this has a long life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2040- 95 — a month ago
