Broadsword Blend Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

This #napa #cabernetsauvignon comes into its own after a long decanting - even a day in the wine cooler after uncorking. Luxurious blackberry jammy nose but nice balance of acidity, restrained vanilla and toasted oak, zesty spice and soft tannins that fade away. The initial tartness after uncorking goes away with that decant time. — 13 days ago

Bravante Vineyards

Trio Napa Velley Merlot Blend 2012

Big mint chocolate, spruce, damson reduction, cinnamon dusted cedar, ripest blackberry, violet, vanilla bean and even a shadow of juniper on this warm and fuzzy Howell Mountain nose. Medium mouthfeel echoes the damson, presenting bay leaf, smoky raspberry, a touch of graphite and blueberry skins in a tightly rolled and endlessly layered sub-strata that stretches to the horizon. #Trio #bravantevineyards #howell #howellmountain #napavalleyred #napawine #Napa — 4 months ago

Y3 Taureau Napa Valley Red Blend 2015


I am enjoying it and yet its a little too warm and slightly too chewy and sweet. Smooth and easy, perhaps too easy. #napa #bordeauxblend — a month ago

Teaderman Vineyards

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Still has everything it needs to age further! Toasty, herbaceous nose of baker’s chocolate, rosemary, oregano, dried black currant, graphite-infused plum bordering on prune, dried blackberry, Madura tobacco, licorice and dark cedar notes. Elegant mouthfeel with chewy tannins, tarragon, cigar, black currant, bramble, graphite shades, dark minerality, blackberry. Cinnamon bark, black cherry, figs, and more for a long and satisfyingly complex finish.#Teaderman #Napa #NapaCab #cab #oakville #TeadermanVineyards #wine #napawine #finesse #depth — 2 months ago

Cornerstone Cellars

Stepping Stone Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Pine-lined pond and glass factory notes intermingle with spearmint, red plum, and blackberry-grape that injects itself into the forest and emerges black currant, while pulling all the aforementioned behind her. Natural and clean aromatics here with cinnamon the only oak influence. Smooth but dense opening, bringing dark chocolate, black Darjeeling, intense graphite behind cassis, mint-pencil, vanilla infused tobacco, burnt raisin, walnut, and black sesame. Liquid, astral beauty in a bottle. Magnificent. #cornerstonecellars #napavalley2012 #Napa #wine #cab #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv4life #cawine #2012vintage — 5 months ago

2012 Rochioli Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

A great combination of bright red fruit and spice notes. Vibrant, classy California Russian Valley pinot noir. Went well with Japanese sukiyaki.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


Deep color beautiful black fruit and mineral aromas just a touch of cigar box and sandal wood. On the palate it is the very definition of a #napacab with length and just slightly chewy tannins minty finish. I’m loving it. #napa #cabernetsauvignon — 2 months ago

Orin Swift

Machete Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

My brother says he loves this wine because it tastes like a “face full of dirt.” I think it’s more elegant than that description but indeed the earthy, forest floor character calls out more Bordeaux than #napa. There’s still a good baseline of dark fruit. Strong offering from Orin Swift. — 5 months ago


Walton Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

I know now this needs more time to integrate, but it’s down-soft in the background, so difficult to see a balanced future. Warm plum and black berry-currant, cranberry stuffing, rich chocolate, sherry trifle, all loosely sprinkled with fine graphite. Steamy jungle flora notes merge with hemp stem and black cherry skins. Hard chocolate entry bringing dried blackberry and even drier black cherry stripped naked in a sauna of chamomile and phantom eucalyptus outlines describing a swarthy shadow through steam. A recent denizen of the cedar benches, puffing sweet tobaccos? There is subtle power at play despite the fruit-forward leanings. I was initially on the fence with this. This one is enigmatic with a nod to Napa in the 1970s. #Napa #Walton #cab #cabernet #cabsauv4life #cabsav #california #egelhoff #EgelhoffWalton #Bobegelhoff #egelhoffwines #StHelena #sthelenacab — 5 months ago
