2010 Von Strasser Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyard Diamond Mountain

Great wine - beautiful black cherry and plum with some violets, creme de cassis and sweet pipe tobacco. Oak is definitely present, but should fade with some more time in the bottle. Silky tannins, nice acidity and a long finish make it a real winner from Napa - wish I had more!

Had a bad bottle with some wet cardboard and maybe a hint of chlorine funk. Finish was destroyed too. Guess I'll try the other ones.

Enjoyed at July 4th cookout. Very cool and unusual Napa Southern Rhone white blend. I would be a rebuyer.

2009 Atalon Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

7/6/2015 - La Cave d'Argent wrote: 90 points

This wine has budged very little since my last tasting almost two years ago (7/21/2013). Opaque ruby/red in color, it offers aromas of cassis, blackberry, vanilla and loamy earth. Full-bodied, freshly acidic, seamlessly alcoholic (despite being listed as 14.6%) and with substantial firm tannins, it stays solid in the middle and closes with a medium-to-long, somewhat astringent finish. Crazy as it seems, I am inclined to conclude that this wine needs more time than most of us had previously assumed. Drink 2017-2025.

Lovely juicy modern styled but not over the top -- great intense fruit balanced with a meaty minerally goodness.

2001 White Cottage Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Vineyard

7/6/2015 - Stevere Likes this wine: 95 points

Wow! What this wine turned into over 14 years! It drank beautifully. It still had the classic Howell Mountain Cabernet fruit with faded tannins. Like drinking a classic Bordeaux without the barnyard. If you still have this wine, you are really lucky. Drink it soon and enjoy it.

Absolutely fine. Spice, but that's about it. A little disappointed, considering the strength of the rest of the Elyse lineup.

Fantastic wine! Deep Flavors... Had a wonderful nose, deep purple juice and complex tastes of fruit, pencil lead, tobacco and more that I am too simple to describe. Just absolutely stunning. Held for four years and now looking for the next vintage.

Very enjoyable. Better than last bottle. Much more fragrant and open. Very crisp, nice fruit. Scents and taste of pineapple and pear. Really good with the grilled glazed Berkshire pork chops we had.
Happy 4th of July!!

Extraordinary aromas of ripe plums, apricots and red cherries. Silky mouthfeel with bursting red fruit. Smooth and easy. Dry apple finish. Drinking rather well for a young cab.

Consistent with prior notes. A really interesting little buy that clearly displays the estate's winemaking talent(s). Sweet-fruited but not cloying at all and lots of interesting things going on. Definitely tastes "made" but a great crowd-pleasing red with some personality.

This is just insanely good for the money. Dense, structured, serious Merlot that is both age-worthy and totally delicious right now too (just be sure to decant). Actually lives up to the name of the label.

2010 Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

7/6/2015 - Nojomoschwa Likes this wine: 90 points

My first experience with Heitz, and it was a good one. Very classic Napa bottling, with lots of fruit but savory and woody elements too. Not overdone or overblown. Enjoyable right out of the gate, and better hours later. Probably a little young. I would hold for a year or two or decant ahead of serving. Price seems about right for what you get (relative to other Napa Cabs).

Loved it last year (the 2013), really like it this year too, just not quite as much for some reason. Intensely refreshing and lithe. Was hoping for a little extra punch. It speaks quietly so maybe I just wasn't patient enough this year. Or maybe it just is what it is …
