2008 Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Fortis

Napa Valley more

6/11/2015 - wadcorp Likes this wine: 92 points

Opened 30 minutes prior to pour. Consumed over a 1.5 hr. dinner. Fragrant nose, with red cherry & perfume. Lush mouthfeel. Notes of red cherry, dark berries, spice box, cedar, light oak & medium tannins. Long finish. Alcohol a touch strong at 14.5%, but really didn't detract from the experience. Drinking well now. Throwing some sediment on the downside of the bottle.

Exceptional gin! A nice break from Bombay Sapphire. Good botanicals, with nothing overpowering. Makes for a righteous gin & tonic. Must buy again.

A middling Côtes du Rhône. Good fruit at the initial pour, but flavors flatten-out after the first hour. Dark berries, some cherry & bramble fruits.

2009 Vincent Arroyo Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

3/26/2015 - wadcorp Likes this wine: 91 points

Nice, lower-alcohol cabernet that has more in common with old school Napa than most of the current output. Notes of red cherry, red berries, cola & a bit of earthiness. Slight sediment thrown on side of bottle. Drinking well now or over the next few years.

Dry Creek Valley Red Blend more

3/24/2015 - wadcorp Likes this wine: 91 points

Exceptionally rich & rewarding blend. Notes of bramble fruit & black cherry, nice earthiness, leather & gripping tannins. Drinking well now, and should go for another 4-5 years with no problem.

2012 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Kirschenmann Vineyard

Lodi more

3/24/2015 - wadcorp Likes this wine: 89 points

Delightful, perfumed nose. Notes of dark berries & cherry, but lighter than any Lodi zinfandel I've ever had. Almost "the pinot of Lodi" if that is possible. Quick finish. Very nice.

2009 Ridge Merlot

Santa Cruz Mountains more

3/19/2015 - wadcorp Likes this wine: 91 points

Excellent merlot. Huge dark fruits, especially black cherry, Jolly Rancher, mocha & pepper. Tannins still going strong. Wish we had a few more bottles as this can go easily a few more years. Nice.

Surprisingly… average. I was expecting a bit more. Notes of red berries & spice box. Some mild oak & light tannins. A bit thin. Throwing a good amount of sediment. Drink now. Not likely to improve.

Good zinfandel that has held up well. Deep, dark, with a nose of blackberry. Notes of dark berries, bramble fruit & fig. Some spiciness & earth going on as well. Don't let this one go any longer. Drink now.

1998 Kenwood Cabernet Sauvignon Jack London Vineyard

Sonoma Valley more

3/6/2015 - wadcorp Likes this wine: 89 points

I had zero expectations for this. Long past it's 2008 drinking window, this just became one of those "I'll get to that at some point" bottles. Nose of red berries & leather. Notes of red cherry, raspberry, something akin to "Rutheford Dust" and mild tannins. Some slight bricking at the edge. Amazingly well-preserved.

A bit more ABV than some of the earlier efforts. Nose of red berries & earth. Notes of red cherry, red berries, some barnyard & leather. Drinking well now, but should do even better with 2-3 more years on it.

Unusual nose. Can't quite put my finger on it. Nice acidity. Notes of light citrus, grapefruit rind, honey, and maybe as someone else mentioned, lychee. Drinking very well now. Had this bottle with snow crab legs, oven roasted potatoes & asparagus.

Deep garnet in color. Nose of dark bramble berries. Notes of cherry, cassis, white pepper, spice box, licorice and mocha. Rich & velvety. Drinking at its prime now.

Trying to remember if this is the last vintage of The Prisoner that Dave Phinney was overseeing.

2011 Vin des Temps 39-34-27-11

Monterey County Red Bordeaux Blend more

1/14/2015 - wadcorp Likes this wine: 89 points

Bright fruit on the nose. Notes of bramble berries & black cherry. Very fruit-forward now, but should calm down with a bit of age on this. Give it a couple hours of air-time.
