Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Red, resinous currant with a licorice twist. Warm blackberry, dark toast, vanilla, cedar and sweet tabac seamlessly tailored, even at such a young age. Fresh gingerbread oven, too. Silk suit of tannins; loose stitching. Wound tightly showing sinewy potential and a Christmas cactus of sutured fruits bursting at the seams with liquid graphite and black currant reduction with fresh cassis and olive berry. Violets, treacle and black tea. Onyx train of a witch bride all the way down Howell mountain! #Dunn #DunnVineyards #napacab #napacabernet #Napa #howellmountain #howell #howellmtn #mountainwine #cabernetacademy #cabernetday #cabernetsauvignon #californiaclassic — a year ago

Pride Mountain Vineyards

Napa Valley Reserve Claret 1997

@pridewines @pridemtnsally much fresher than expectations. very grippy tannins still exist almost making the wine off balance. will be interesting to try another one in 5yrs #mountainwine #1997vintage — 3 years ago

Vinudilice Metodo Classico Spumante Rosé Blend

From high altitude Etna--alpine in nature. Yet seaside too. Raw cow'a milk, lemons and black currants hanging ripe and ready for the picking. Excellent with our left over Indian food. Not too far of a cry from Sicilian dishes. #exotic #etna #alpinewine #mountainwine — 5 years ago

Espino Gran Cuvée Carménère

Sweet Madura tobacco and mocha with a touch of tar, dark roast coffee, prime rib, iron pan, luxardo cherry, cedar bark, toasted marshmallow in this autumnally aromatic feast of perfumes. Spicy and lean into dense graphite and dark chocolate, blueberry, cassis, smoky raisin, baked plum, blackberry and pomegranate reduction. Violets for miles with a rich sloe-berry and burnt sugar cookie finish. #williamfèvre #carmenère #espino #chilewineday #chile #wine #redwine #svs #singlevineyard #grancuvée #mountainwine #mountainfruit — a year ago

Bravante Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Big cassis and black currant on a dusty cedar frame with smoky blackberry, blood orange, clove and fir bark nose. Cinnamon, ripe cassis, dried, black cherry, toasty sesame on half-burnt toast. Graphite-blackberry and rustic cigar flavors. #howellmountain #howell #howellmtn #mountainwine #napa #Bravantevineyards #cabernet #cabernetacademy #caliclassic #cawine — 2 years ago

Viña William Fèvre

Espino Chardonnay 2011

Earthy, herbaceous aromas of Brown, river mud and clay, cattails, plantain, fungus and peach, with matchsticks and ripe grapefruit. Medium-creamy texture sharpens into bright lemon citrus and Granny Smith morphing into crabapples. Green table grapes, sage, peppercorn, grapefruit and orchid textures shoot to clean river and trout bones. Racy, with twists and turns, a real ride down the rapids #chardonnay #chard #espino #chile #williamfèvre #mountainwine #maipoandes #maipo #SanJuandePirque #pirque — a year ago

Mount Veeder Winery

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Tar, blackberry, gum Arabic, dark rye loaf with caraway, cedar wrapped tobaccos, baked artichoke, baked black currant, mussel shells in beef broth, broken pencils and rosemary sprig. Really a steak bouquet beckoning. Chocolate-y palate with graphite on aged parchment, seared thyme, baked cassis, warm black and blue berries, burnt black currant and black poppyseed. I like this. I knew going in it was going to be round and full, but it contained just enough herbaceous character to keep my brain in the glass. #napacab #mtveeder #cab #cawine #mountainwine #mountveederwinery — 2 years ago
