Napa Valley Zinfandel Blend, Zinfandel more

Huge soft bing cherries and strawberries, that have enough structure to make it interesting. Resolving to tart pie cherries and ripe raspberries. -t

2005 Nickel & Nickel Merlot Harris

This one should have been opened at least a year ago. Today it tastes briefly of sour cherries and strawberries, before the alcohol heats up and overwhelms the flavor, it resolves to a pleasant tart blueberry flavor. Time to drink up if any are laying about. -t

2005 Paraduxx (Duckhorn Vineyards) Postmark Howell Mountain

Zinfandel Blend, Zinfandel more

5/30/2015 - theduck Likes this wine: 83 points

Lovely wine, big structure that is also showing its age, a little softer than I remember. Big dark chocolate covered cherries, a bit hot but resolved quickly to a lovely soft lingering finish. If you have any of this left, it's time to drink up. -t

Green apples and grapefruit, a hint of lemon. A little minerality in the mud and a long almost citrus rind bitter end that resolves to a mild warhead candy sour flavor. -t

Rogue Valley more

5/19/2015 - theduck Likes this wine: 80 points

Grapefruit and honeysuckle on the front, ruby grapefruit in the mid, and a nice long finish. Very refreshing, has enough structure to go with a meal, but also interesting enough just for itself. -T

Napa Valley more

5/17/2015 - theduck Likes this wine: 82 points

Much softer than the 2012, blackberries, blueberry cobbler, vanilla, and dripping bing cherries. Strong finish. But compared 2012, this is a much more refined vintage. -T

2012 Hall Cabernet Sauvignon Jack's Masterpiece

Napa Valley more

5/17/2015 - theduck Likes this wine: 84 points

Juicy up front, beautiful structure all the way through. Lovely and lively finish that is strong and long. Vanilla, pepper, cola, and bing cherries. Compared to the 2012, this is much stronger and bolder. I think this will age very nicely and still be able to stand up for itself. -T

Beautiful plum up front, soft mid, but enough structure to keep it strong. Nice black pepper, and juicy black plum all the way through. Could use a little air, and or age before this one gets consumed. -T
