2012 Becklyn Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

This reminds me of a very good year Caymus SS. My only regret is that I don't have a case of this in the cellar.

The smokey syrah funk that I always find in good syrah is the driving force in this wine.

WAIT!! This wine has potential but needs time. The last 2012 Bevan I opened was wonderful and ready to enjoy. This is tight and the tannins dominated the wine.

2011 Calluna Vineyards Cuvée "CVC"

Chalk Hill Red Bordeaux Blend more

The rating is influenced by the QPR. If this wine was $75+ I would be disappointed but for less than $30 it is a bargain. Really enjoyed. Light to medium body.

2011 Roy Piper Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

Not upset with the purchase but I would think this wine would be priced at half the value. The is no way this is better than Rivers Marie, Myriad, Quivet, or EMH.

This reminds me of an older Rudd. Plenty of earth, mineral, and tobacco. Not what I look for in a wine but know of others that would love this.

Drinking wonderfully. Lush deep red core. A touch of sweetness (vanilla?) which gave the wine a wonderful finish but others may not like.

2011 Saxum James Berry Vineyard

Paso Robles Red Rhone Blend more

This is the first bottle of Saxum that has been close to the lofty reputation. Past bottles have been big disappointments. This is very similar to Myriad Syrah but at double the price.

This is starting to show itself better. If you have a few, it is worth popping a cork. The other 2 LOVED it and would of given it 95-96pts.

2010 Roy Piper Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

3/13/2015 - jaxpaj wrote: 94 points

Interesting wine. This has a unique undertone that I can't figure out. I would compare this to Hobel, therefore a little overpriced. This being the first vintage release from Roy, hopefully he will dial it in and the '12 will be a great QPR.

Very dirty wine. Use caution when pouring pouring your glass or decant with a screen.

Really drinking well now. Drank over 2 nights and while vacuum sealing, after night 1, the wonderful smell made me want to pour another glass. Much improved from 4 months ago.

This may be the best Myriad of '12. The 96pts may be low. Wonderfully deep and rich.

This needs time to show the richness and depth I know is there. Traditionally this is one of my favorite wines. Give this time it will come around.

OUTSTANDING!! The wine is in a great place and you need to pop a cork. This is the best QPR I have ever!! I would put this up against any wine. Amazing how much this wine has changed over the last couple of months.
