Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Napa Valley Merlot 2015

When you have a friend committed to red wine on a hot Friday afternoon, this Stag’s Leap certainly is a good choice. Richer-style #napavalley #merlot, vanilla, bramble berry jam, mushrooms and sandalwood nose, good acidity to balance it out but perhaps drank too warm - it would have been sublime 15 minutes in the glass after pouring from the wine fridge. — 5 days ago

Merryvale

Coombsville Merlot 2016

Deep ruby, almost purple, hue. Ripe purple fruit, such as blackberries, black currant, fig jam, and plum sauce, and tobacco, cocoa, bell pepper, sage, smoked meat, cedar, and delicate baking spices. Velveteen on the palate with soft tannins and a long finish. Vintage 2016. 14.5% ABV. #merryvale #merryvalevineyards #coombsvillenapa #merlot #merlotday #merlot #napavalley #napavalleywine #napawine — 5 months ago

Spottswoode

Family Estate Grown St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

2011 Spottswoode Family Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (The 30th Anniversary Bottling)

I could not wait any longer and decided to open this. Trust the producer. 2011 was a difficult year, but the very top winemakers make great wines under the most difficult condition. Cassis, dark chocolate, plum, mint, herbs, pencil and minerals. Lighter than expected. Medium-bodied. Delicious. Would love to compare it with their 2010 vintage which RP gave 100 points.

開けるには早いかなと思いつつも待ち切れず、スポッツウッドの2011年をトライ。2011年は非常に難しい年でしたが、トップクラスのワインメーカーが手掛けるワインはさすが。カシス、ダークチョコレート、プラム、ミント、ハーブ、鉛筆の芯やミネラルなど。思っていたより軽めでミディアムボディーな仕上がり。美味しくいただきました。近い将来、ロバートパーカー氏が100点をつけた2010年と飲み比べてみたいものです。

Paraduxx (Duckhorn Vineyards)

Proprietary Napa Valley Red Blend 2016

#napavalley prop blend from the Duckhorn folks. Nicely crafted blend with a characteristic fruit forward nature - ride that crest of bramble berry but enjoy the balance of tartness and velvet tannins on the finish. — 2 months ago

Harvest of Joy To-Kalon Vineyard Fumé Blanc 2013

9.3

2013 and it’s still alive and kicking. As it opens up it begins to express all of its tropical fruit aromas like mango, papaya and passion fruit. It has a creamy aroma and creamy texture from its fermentation and ageing in oak. It’s like a light coconut and white chocolate powder dashed on top. Lovely texture, tight and crunchy, with an orange peel and cream. Long finish. #sauvignonblanc #fuméblanc #mondavi #californiawine #napavalley — 4 months ago

Teeter-Totter

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Purple hue with ruby rim variation. Noticeable extraction and moderate tearing. Candied black and red fruit on the nose; blackberry, raspberry, cassis; dried roses; potpourri; potting soil, molasses, and anise notes; cedar box and vanilla. Smooth, soft tannins on the palate. Dry. Palate is largely consistent with the nose, but definitely fruit-forward and noticeable new oak. Medium acidity with a slight spiciness. #teetertotter #napavalley #napavalleycab #cabernetsauvignon #faitmainwines #winelover #newworldwines #californiagirl #wineandfood

Underrated. An aromatic, smooth beauty. Aged really well. This is showing its best now. Love it.

リリースされた当時はあまり評価されなかったワインですが、17年の時を経て、ふくよかで芳醇なワインになっていました。熟成されまさに飲み頃です。素晴らしい。

Lewelling Vineyards

St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here's a fantastic #Cabernet from #NapaValley.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Strong fruity nose with black currants, cooked cherries, figs, raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cola, chocolates, mocha, coffee, alcohol, earth, leather, smoke, tobacco leaf and black pepper.

Full bodied and gentle with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, coffee, raisins, chocolates, mocha, earth, leather, coke, tobacco and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Very enjoyable by itself or with food.

Still showing the high alcohol. Not fully balance yet, but so tasty. Still young, and needs 5 years in the bottle to mature and bring out more complexity.

Delicious and yummy.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats, cheeses and pickled vegetables.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 18 months (70% new).

15.6% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

$70.
