Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This was part of a very enjoyable and educational visit with Graeme a couple of weeks back. We tasted the ‘17 from half bottle and it showed impeccable purity and lovely concentration all poised neatly within its classical styling. There is superb complexity too, no doubt leached from the complex soils they’re working with. Cool vineyard and delicious wine - 2017 — 10 months ago

Gorgeous and refreshing, with impeccable balance. Tons of orchard fruit, lemon confit, sage and exotic floral notes. A joy to taste and drink. 😋 — 2 years ago

@Antonio Galloni Great! Try to find/drink one with at least 8 years of age! They blow your mind! I presume this one has a + behind the 92! 😊

St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Dry tobacco leaf and light cedar, black cherry. Notes of fig around a core of persistent but never aggressive tannins. Round and perfectly delineated, @Cathy Corison has made another one for the ages. From magnum this was excellent, will likely improve with 2-3 years. — 2 months ago

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Heck of a hosting by @Weston Eidson last night for the City Club wine group. All wines were tasted blind.

My other Co-WOTN. For me, these wines are up there with the best in Napa. The history, the people and the wines are just top shelf. Loved our visit here earlier this year. Having had the ‘13, ‘14 and ‘16, this seems to be the most accessible and certainly more so than the ‘13. This was powerful the entire evening and the fruit stayed ripe and sweet covering the red, blue and black spectrum. Graphite, dark chocolate up front, but it did turn more elegant at the finish showing potpourri and baking spices. Sheer To Kalon power.

Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

Excellent @Cathy Corison ! Complex, broad and delicious. Round mid palate, full of luscious black fruit. Great length with - surprisingly savory finish, bordering on olive which belies the ripeness. Simply terrific! — 2 months ago

Such a fantastic wine. Had a ‘98 a while back and it was singing.


Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

One of the most intensely concentrated Napa Cabs I have ever tasted. From the BEST parcel of To Kalon up against the hillside (Mondavi has been buying the family fruit for years). Gigantic old narled Cabernet vines....a true Napa treasure. — 2 years ago

von der Fels Rheinhessen Riesling 2018

Mainly primary on the nose. Generous. Grapefruit, lemon, lees/yeasty, touch of minerals. Good acidity, finish long with just a hint of round sweetness although RS<3g/L. All from GG sites, mainly Kirchspiel. For the price, an outrageous steel...12.5% alc — 2 months ago
