NV Taylor (Fladgate) Porto 20 Year Old Tawny

Port Blend more

1/30/2016 - Tiderunner22 wrote: 92 points

My two previous reviews were for Porto bottled in 2014. This wine was bottled in 2015 and as expected maintains then house style with minor variations from the previous reviewed Porto. This bottle showed slightly more grip on the finish while keeping all the balance and fineness I have enjoyed with previous bottles. This really is a beautiful example of a fine Tawny Porto.

2012 Roanoke Vineyards Prime Number

North Fork Red Blend more

1/23/2016 - Tiderunner22 wrote: NR

This wine needs another 5 years in the bottle or 3+ hours decanting. Lots of structure and depth hidden by the heavy tannins of youth. There is a earthy note that gives a real sense of the north fork of Long Island. Will wait a few years before opening the next bottle and rating what should be an exception experience.

Pleasant California Cabernet which drinks above the reasonable price point. Ample black and red fruit flavors on a medium balanced finish with smooth tannins. Still drinking well on day two. First time drinking this wine which was part of a gift and will look for more.

A little on the rustic side however, this is a good wine at a very reasonable price. Some spice with a medium smokey earthy finish. Ample black and blue berry flavors with a hint of sweetness.

2012 Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown Rutherford

more

12/5/2015 - Tiderunner22 wrote: 90 points

Medium body wine with black fruit flavors and the earthy Rutherford flavor you come to expect from a quality Napa Cabernet. This wine delivers all you could expect at a good QPR. Would benefit from more cellar time but drinking very well now.

Continues to be a great value Washington state Cabernet year after year. Pleasant nose of black cherry with a hint of woody vanilla. Medium length with a smooth finish. Enjoyable with or without food. I always try to have some in the cellar for everyday enjoyment.

One of the best values for a Napa Cabernet at $13. The 2012 vintage was very good and the 2013 continues the winning streak. Nicely balanced wine which improves if allowed to breath for awhile.

Agree with other postings, this wine is nearly purple. Balanced Cabernet with flavors of vanilla, black fruit and tobacco. Easily drinks like wines costing $20 more. Will buy again.
