2014 Miner Family Sangiovese Mendocino Rosato

Mendocino County more

7/25/2015 - AllRed wrote: 85 points

4th Saturday Group brown bagger (Mark & Rochelle's): Pale copperish color with notes of melon and generic red berry fruit. Adds a nice floral quality as it opens, as well as a pepper note on the palate. The finish is short and rather austere. I thought this was a southern French rose.

7/24/2015 - Sheldog Likes this wine: 88 points

Dark garnet in color and beautiful legs giving a huge clue to the potential quality of this wine. There is still dark fruit and spice. Blackberry on the front of the palate, giving way a a little hot mid palate (alcohol) and a blackberry and cigar on the finish. There are still plenty of tannins present so cellar on.

This is on the verge of being an exceptional wine. If the high alcohol balances out over time then the wine will be great in a few years but if it doesn't then this will be a bit of a dud considering this was an exceptional year for cabernet in Oakville. So I'm rating this a bit lower but have one more bottle that I will try again in about 5 years or so. Time will tell.

Confession: I did not give this a lot of decanting time--less than an hour. We drank quickly with dinner so maybe i just didn't treat her right.

A nicely aged quality California, Napa cab; it is smooth and well integrated with some of that aged cellar quality going on. Nice expressive nose. This wine screams to be served with steak with its dark brambly fruit of blackberry, boysenberry and fig; cedar, vanilla and black pepper in the mid-palate. Mild integrated tannins on the finish that brings out cherry and vanilla flavors in an aged cellar wrapper. You need to be drinking these now.

Never a big fan of the Miner Pinots, especially at $50+. Very light in color and very meek but drinkable.

Nose of rich black fruit, currants and cherry with a touch of fig, more of the same on the palate, at it's peak, delicious, elegant, medium/big body, lots of sediment in the glass, mouth filling and very flavorful finish and aftertaste.

2006 Miner Family Cabernet Sauvignon 10th Anniversary

Napa Valley more

7/14/2015 - Sheldog Likes this wine: 94 points

I needed a special bottle of wine to celebrate a special event--my first hole-in-one (176 yds, 5-iron for you golfers). Grilled up a double cut Ribeye and enjoyed this awesome cab. Since this was a couple nights ago, I do not recall the minute details of the wine, but know that there was still a lot of dark fruit and cigar box on the nose, with just the right amount of oak, tannins and long well-balanced finish with notes of chocolate. Killer with the ribeye.

I have one more of these in the cellar and I am going to remind myself to wait another 4-5 years before drinking that one. That is of course, unless I have another hole-in-one before then. ;-)

Plenty of fruit. Lots of sediment so recommend decanting. Got into a bit of the sediment and ended up with a lingering bitters, back-palate flavor. Had to remember that the wine was good with a beef dinner.

7/10/2015 - Steve&Carolyn Likes this wine: 91 points

Beautiful rich color, deep dark garnet. Wonderfully fragrant with seriously big black fruits, violets, leather, black cherries, blackberries with a slight cocoa and spice taste. It has a medium-long finish and nice complexity. Fantastic with Italian food. It really complements the flavors of basil and tomatoes. There is a fair amount of sediment so decanting this one next time might be a good idea.

Excellent blueberry and spice on the nose. First impression delivered a slightly tannic, but overly briney flavored with hints of floral on the back end. Didn't even out after an hour. Felt unbalanced. Paired fine with ribeye but better choices at the price point.

This is good stuff. Huge nose bursting with dark fruit jam, however the palate is slightly more restrained and is balanced by some acidity.

A solid Pinot. Prob should have sat a little longer but hey it's the 4th of July and looked like a good one to open. Very fruity, blackberry and spice. Not overly Tannic. Easy to drink and went well with burgers. Can wait for some more to arrive from the wine club!

2009 is getting a little long in the tooth. The dark stone fruit is there with some tannins but very little depth. This was much better in 2013

Fabulous wine. Drank from magnum with over dozen people and similar notes. For a Zin at + 15 years, boy did this sing. Very un-zinfandel like not really peppery, but more upfront fruit and pure velvety mouthfeel. We had notes including strawberry, blueberry & some coffee.
