Drinking great now. Still has plenty of primary taste in it, right in its drinking window but with a few years still.

7/7/2015 - bestdamncab Likes this wine: 94 points

My third auction bottle and last one unfortunately, bight, rich plum color in the glass, lots of bouquet with raspberry, red cherry, cigar box, forest floor, and hot, dusty earth, more of the same on the palate, better than the other two bottles on the palate by far, complex and elegant, medium/big, rich body, lots of raspberry on the long finish, great wine with St. Andre French cheese. The community has lots of this wine-time to enjoy it!!!

2013 Matt Parish Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

7/7/2015 - Vietty wrote: NR

Looks clear without any cloudiness with dark core to magenta rim, obviously a young wine. Smells of dark red fruits and spice, with hot alcohol. Tastes like dark cherry and strawberry, lighter/fresher fruit than expected. Not the blue/dark fruit I like in my cabs. Strong acidity. Oak is unpleasant to me, like a fresh 2x4. Finishes with spice and coarse tannins. Alcohol notes seem unrefined. Maybe some time will help to integrate the components but I'm not expecting a huge improvement over time. To be honest, I expected it to taste like bulk wine with residual sugar but it tastes like "real" wine. At $12 a bottle after discounts, it not bad. Fits the bill for a casual gathering where the focus is not on the wine... like a sub $15 bottle of red wine from Trader Joe's or Costco.

Recommended to me by the Von's Pavilion's wine manager, Shoneen. As usual she is spot on. Great nose. This has nice structure with good complexity and a decently long finish. Great bottle for the money. Going back to buy more tomorrow.

2013 Cruse Wine Company Valdiguié Rancho Chimiles

Napa Valley more

7/7/2015 - Anthony Lombardi Likes this wine: 90 points

Breathed around a half hour in glasses. Dark beet red. A powerful & intense take on Valdiguie. Fleshy, juicy black & red fruit with a strong tannic backbone. Shows a spicy character through the mid palate. Alongside the powerful & showy elements of this wine, an elegance & focus show the little details about Valdiguie. Black currants & herbs linger on the palate.

A real revelation here, I generally expect Valdiguie to be a fruity vin de soif & this one is a serious wine looking for serious food. Very impressive.

This is the best Rose I've ever tasted. Fleshy mouth feel, dark pink color, exotic aromas of oak, vanilla, toasted marshmallow. Complex - not your typical rose.

- Fast forming legs. It's balanced and has flavours of mushroom, strawberry jam and black pepper with a medium/full body. Fleshy texture with a long finish.

7/7/2015 - 82Latour Likes this wine: 89 points

Dark red with light signs of bricking around the edge; cassis, eucalyptus, black fruit, cedar on the nose; Strawberry, plum on the palate, mid+ acid, touch low on the sweetness, making the balance a bit off. Tannins still firm and sharp, should continue to evolve for the next five years. Mid finish.

Cherries, oak, some vanilla on the nose. Smooth and silky on the palate, with some oak and fading fruit, mostly dried tart cherries. Probably past its peak, but still good. Last bottle

Very clear, dark cherry in colour; curry, cummin, mustard and spice on the nose; hints of cherry and red fruit, tannins emerge on mid-palate. Pleasant but not overly long finish.

2008 Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon

6/30/2015 - Cabernet4Me2 Likes this wine: 93 points

This was still HUGE, amazing nose of menthol and tar with blue and black fruits, on the palate was powerful, almost had a Sine Qua Non type of entry, very extracted with Vanilla, Pencil Lead, Cassis, Blackberry, Tar. Dark almost black appearance, showed not signs of age or oxidation. Had A minute + long finish, excellent, mellowed after an hour but definitely a treat and looking forward to the next two bottle in cellar, drinking fabulously now, but think these bottles have another 10 years.

Decanted about 45 minutes. This wine is still surprisingly youthful with notes of dark fruit, earth, game, and cassis. Soft integrated tannins have a silky feel and finish lasts a good 30 seconds. I believe I have 2 bottles left and I plan on holding on to those for a while.

Pale salmon pink. Clean nose of sea air and blood orange. Fresh citrus fruit on the palate with a sharp acid bite and a long finish. A nice refreshing rose, would go well with salty fatty charcuterie to cut the acid. 50 + 16 + 15 + 7.
