Again, i got bit in the ass by winebid. Flawed bottle. Clearly, winebid is where people send there bottles that they left out in the heat or sun.

Last time i got bit on the 2008 Realm. Unfortunatly i have one more of each vintage purchased from winebid.

2013 Outpost Zinfandel Howell Mountain

more

2/6/2016 - Rktekt3 wrote: 94 points

Wasnt really sure i was drinking a zinfandel. Deep red fruit on the nose. Full fruit flavor on the pallate, a bit of oak and some heat along with that zinfandel spice/pepper flavor i love. This wine is right now my WOTY and i am going back to the store to buy the other bottle that was on the shelf.

This is a very nice $55-$60 bottle of cab and with a few years will be very very nice. Putting the rest in the back of the cellar.

2013 Becklyn Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

12/5/2015 - Rktekt3 wrote: NR

Do NOT open this wine yet.

I only did it because i hadnt had a Becklyn yet. This is my first. I stuffed the cork back into the bottle and will try it again tomorrow. But great aroma/nose. On the palatte it is a bit muted but coming around after one hour. Good tannins.

Hold off on this wine.

2013 Rivers-Marie Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

11/25/2015 - Rktekt3 wrote: 95 points

What is not to like about this wine. Beautiful deep red color. Fruit forward on the nose and palate. A bit of oak, vanilla and chocolate. Great flavors that are well adjusted. It is a big wine and has a very nice finish.

Glad i have been going deep on the 2013's and this is my first year for Rivers-Marie.

Paso Robles more

I love the Turley Pesenti Zin. This is the best and the 2013 is showing to be great. I probably should have bought more than four of them.

2010 Sojourn Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard

Rutherford more

11/3/2015 - Rktekt3 wrote: 90 points

Its really not a bad wine at all but at the same time it is a bit monolithic. As well, it does have a harsh finish at this point. Give it some more time if you own these.
