2012 Donati Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Ezio Paicines

7/28/2015 - GTFreek wrote: NR

80/12/5/3 Cabernet/Merlot/Cab Franc/Petit Verdot. Pretty nose shows rich cherry, light cedar, blackberry, sage. Palate rounds out immediately with black layers that are nicely framed by proper structure, plum, cassis, smooth medium tannins, acidity medium to medium plus, again like the Donati lineup lower in the alcohol. Great QPR.

86/8/3/3 Merlot/Cab Franc/Malbec/Petit Verdot. Medium nose shows red fruit, flowers, light baking spice, plum, black raspberry. Palate gives red plum, vanilla, chocolate, something slightly sour like licorice, medium tannins are smooth, medium acidity. Tasty, balanced, crowd pleasing, nice QPR.

47/23/14/14/2 Cabernet/Merlot/Cab Franc/Petit Verdot. Medium plus nose jumps out, red boysenberry, baking spice, red cherry, white pepper, coconut, black plum, red plum, hint of chocolate. Palate shows really tasty fruit up front, but not in a fruity way, nice layers of black and red fruit, maybe hint of blue plum as well. Acidity stands strong as well, mid-palate more subtle, finish medium, alcohol seems lower than most (13.8%), smooth and easy to drink.

90/10 Chard/Pinot Blanc. Now called "Sisters Forever". All steel, no malo, some lees contact. Nose shows green apple, lightly toasted pear, white flowers, nice floral notes, lilac, slight stone. Palate nicely balanced between fruit and non-fruit elements, a little sharp peach pith, same green apple, wet stone, creaminess as well, a little cheesy. Very interesting and good QPR.

Similar to last time. Herbaceous, fruity, just barely sweet. Nicely done.

Sisters Forever. Pale colour. On the nose, tropical and citrus. Soft, creamy midpalate. Short, crisp finish, with slight banana, like a hefeweizen almost. Tastes unlike most other Chardonnays I've had. The fruit comes out nicely. Family owned, sustainable farming. $14.

A very nice merlot here. It lost some of the smoke it had when I had it at a tasting before buying, but it's still got plenty to like. A little smoky acidity and a scent of violets, plenty of plum without being fruity, solid backbone, lasting finish. Some complexity (certainly not unidimensional), but not a ton. 88-89 pts.

No formal notes, had this at Seasons 52 in Lone Tree, a very full bodied, juicy cab franc, an excellent pairing with chicken pesto flatbread.

I kind of like this, but I also feel that it could have been way better with a little more sweetness. It has good body and richness, but the sweetness and acidity levels are really mild relative to the ripe aroma, which leads you to expect more. Maybe I was hoping for a baby recioto, and was a bit disappointed. However, I must say it's a great wine for the price.

Drink now! Tannins are very soft to begin with that anymore age wouldn't do this justice. I bought this wine for wholesale cost and it's the best California value I can find. All their wines are so silky it will trick your palate into thinking you're not drinking a full bodied rich cab.

Needs to open up, decant for a couple hours and/or let it age for a while longer.
