2012 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary

Napa Valley more

Welchs grape juice, sweet, residual sugar, overripe. To a serious wine drinker, this is almost undrinkable.

2006 Kistler Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

Fairly disappointing for a kistler. I overrated this wine in the past, but really never liked it. Frankly, hot, bitter, and lacking acidity and fruit - pinot Noir should not be this way. It's not a bad wine, just not up to Kistler standards.

Of the six or so bottles I've drank of this wine, they have all seemed to be inferior in fruit, character, and style. Kistler had overdone their wines for a short period of time (although I cannot tell you which years), then pulled back more recently over the past several years to create more balanced, acidic and delicate wines. This 2006 could represent a failed, flawed style that they tried and abandoned.


2009 Ramey Chardonnay Platt Vineyard

Sonoma Coast more

Compared to Ritchie, a little more rich and buttery in style. These '09 Ramey chards are top notch.

First of all, we LOVE your chardonnay's (Ritchie, Hudson, Platt) - they're absolutely outstanding... thanks for being a great winemaker! I haven't tasted all of them together under the same conditions, which is probably what I should do prior to commenting but that was my interpretation by memory from recent consumption. Do you host visitors? my wife and I may be coming out in September.

Excellent concentration of dark cherries, pomegranate, sweet softened tannins, nicely structured and youthful.

2005 Copain Syrah Garys' Vineyard

Santa Lucia Highlands more

Dusty flavor hides cranberry/cherry fruit. Barely an 89 pt wine.
