2002 Bond Matriarch

Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/31/2015 - TheLittleHorse Likes this wine: 92 points

Still youthful color, with a layer of spicy chorizo, roasted Italian herbs, vanilla and crushed blueberries on the nose. On the palate, blueberry and strawberry jam, more spicy notes, perfume and increasing chocolate notes over time. This is really a nice wine and shows off how strong the 2002 vintage was for Napa and probably deserves a higher score than 92. Drinking now very well and probably will last another 5-10 at the same level.

Heavy dark fruit on the nose. Still tannic, has some time ahead of it. Good paired with sweet, spicy food. An enjoyable drink.

1995 Rockland Petite Sirah

Napa Valley more

7/30/2015 - John Danza Likes this wine: 90 points

Dark red in color with a lighter red rim, so no real signs of advanced ageing. The nose is a bit leathery. The palate is dominated by dark fruits with nice acid and a good tannic structure. The wine comes off like a Cabernet Sauvignon in strength. It's really nice for a 20-year-old wine. There's at least 10 years of life left on this.

2003 Neiman Cellars Red Wine Caldwell Vineyard

Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/31/2015 - Yack Man wrote: 90 points

A decent wine, fragrant nose, red-crimson color, modest fruit with some tannins, muted berries, cherries and smooth drinking. Still holding up well for the vintage with some life ahead of it. 89-90 points to me as I consider it a softer style red wine. For those who like this style, I can see where they would probably score it higher.

2004 Corison Merlot Helios

Worth the wait. Just fantastic. Perfectly balanced, right fruit, tannins integrated, secondary aromas and flavours have come out. Leafy, herbaceous, and enough cherry fruit to balance out all out. This is to me the ideal merlot.

Slight disagreement between Lisa & I. Lisa preferred the Mondavi Chardonnay. I favor Larkmead's offering.

"yummy, yummy...I've got love in my tummy" Seriously, though, it was a very nice Napa blend that will likely get even better over the next year.

I forgot that I tasted this wine just over a month ago. It has not changed: "a yellowish-grey color; obviously unfiltered and unfined. Aromas of poached pear, lemon, nuts, smoke, brioche and smokey oak. Buttery in the mouth; soft. Rich fruit. A long viscous finish." I wish the wine had a little more intense fruit. I'll wait longer before the next tasting.

2008 Vellum Cabernet Sauvignon

7/31/2015 - PSUSteve wrote: 91 points

Needed plenty of air. On pop and pour, this was tight and had no fruit to be found. Started drinking an hour later but really needed two hours of air to show best. At that point, layered red and black fruit appears. Tannins are dusty on the finish.

This was immediately recognizable as nebbiolo, though hotter and riper than any I've had before. Not mistakable for an old world wine. Longer finish than last time but after an hour the sweetness gets to me.

Final body. My notes from last year still apply. Inky, and moderate tannins for seventeen years. Perhaps a little less fruit but still an enjoyable wine.

2009 Odisea Syrah Cochon Phoenix Ranch

Napa Valley more

7/31/2015 - BVal wrote: 91 points

From the list at Alma Nova in Hingham, Mass; 97% Syrah + 3% Viognier; 125 cases produced.

Color: deep ruby core -> medium deep ruby rim. Crazy old world nose of sour cherries, cranberries, a little earth and (am I just imagining this?) hours-long smoked pork briscuit. Palate was lean and mean and showing that smoke, sour cherries and slow-roasted cochon and while it was delicious with food Italiano, the tart acidity was pretty bracing. Once again, tasted like it was from Italy, not Cali and that's a compliment to my mind. I'd buy this again if I could find it in a shop just to track how it develops; to my palate, wines high in acid generally age tremendously well and I think this could do the same. Get this if you're interested in a new world Syrah in old world clothing with the proviso that you have to love acidic wines.
