2011 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

more

2/6/2016 - bestdamncab Likes this wine: 93 points

At Silver Oak 2011 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Release Party today, tasted five times paired with eight food offerings with similar results, open and fairly fruit forward, aromatic, dark fruit, mocha chocolate, and a hint of vanilla, more of the same on the palate, tasting shows the value of ageing this Cabernet Sauvignon the previous five years, as the wine drinks beautifully, almost elegant, soft tannins show on the mid palate and long finish, will peak in about three years. Purchased 4 bottles today.

At Silver Oak 2011 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Release Party today, a surprise opportunity to taste the Alexander Valley today, nose of black cherry, plum, red bell pepper and dusty, dry forest floor, much more open with more fruit showing today compared to previous tastings, medium/big body, tasty, needs three years to peak or decant for five hours, medium finish.

2010 Château Villars

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend more

2/5/2016 - bestdamncab Likes this wine: 91 points

Opened this wine on Thursday night and was pleasantly surprised by a young but aromatic nose, much better than the previous four bottles, nose of blackberry and blueberry fruit, lead pencil, a touch of tar and licorice, more of the same on the palate, medium body, very tasty and well paired with the meaty lasagna, slightly better the second night, and a long finish. Definitely a winner for $19 out the door.

1989 Château Margaux

Red Bordeaux Blend more

2/5/2016 - bestdamncab Likes this wine: 97 points

Alex offered me a taste of this wine from his Coravin System while waiting to takeout his delicious Chinese food for our Friday dinner. Alex was on his way to a Chateau Margaux tasting. Thank you Alex for the experience, Floral nose of black cherry, currants, lead pencil, more of the same on the palate, great bouquet and great taste, I remember tasting this wine at Chateau Margaux with Paul Pontallier, big body, at it's peak, will easily last another 15 years but why wait, bell pepper and sage on the mid palate and finish, long, long flavorful finish and aftertaste.
