1978 Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve

7/28/2015 - John Danza Likes this wine: 90 points

From .375ml. Purchased from a retailer who had owned it from release and stored it in optimal conditions. Opened an hour, then decanted and served. A very nice leathery nose upon opening. Color is a medium red with a light rim but not much true browning. The palate was cassis and some tart cherry. The acid is still prevalent as is the tannins. Past maturity but still drinking very well. Paired very well with grilled rib eye.

2005 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

7/28/2015 - mflesh Likes this wine: 93 points

Very nice wine tonight. I believe this wine has reached maturity, but it really only did so after about 2 hours of decanting. By the time it got there, about 80 percent of the bottle was gone. Wine was uncorked and poured a dark red color into the glass. A little bricked on the edge and I expected this at 10 yrs post vintage. The nose was fig and some slightly aged blackberry with some kind of minty note. Some herbaceousness was there as well. The wine entered soft on the palate. At first, the palate imitated what the nose was producing, medium+ body. Middle and finish were blackberry, fig, aged saddle leather, green pepper, and finished with pepper and grit. Softened again around 2 hours and was giving good berry notes without as much herbaceousness. I think this one will continue to become more vegetal as it ages. I don't think it will improve any MORE in the bottle, but I think it will continue to drink well through 2020.

2010 Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Special Bottling To-Kalon Vineyard

Napa Valley more

7/28/2015 - ebharrigan Likes this wine: 97 points

Super concentrated but with exceptional clarity. Rich ripe black fruits dominate the nose and on the palate the full throttle cassis and berry flavors meld seamlessly into the oak and tannins. While the tannins are substantial they don't seem to be over baring which gives the impression that this wine, while absolutely delicious now, will age effortlessly over the next few decades. While the price point is quite high, it is difficult to find a Napa Cap of this quality for much less these days. Mondavi's To-Kalon Cabernet reminds me of an even more famous cabernet, Hillside Select by Shafer.

Named for the winemakers daughter, she must be quite a firecracker. This was perfumed with exotic spice, pepper and summer greens. Good structure held the flavours together well.

Well preserved, this had a hint of cloud on first contact but then snapped back into its youthful vigour, with lovely cherries, blackberries and leather. A find body and decent finish shows this is aging remarkably well. To be enjoyed.

1994 Abreu Cabernet Sauvignon Madrona Ranch

Napa Valley more

7/28/2015 - bengti Likes this wine: 98 points

An outstanding bottle that was piercing like a garnet, a concentration of fruit and integration of alcohol that I have only encountered in 1-2 other bottles, and reminded me of the Artadi El Pison 1995. Subtle undergirth of strength gives this wine presence and approachability. Gorgeous.

2011 Bevan Cellars Ontogeny

Oakville Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/28/2015 - msuwright Likes this wine: 90 points

A modern red that is satisfying but, ultimately, cannot transcend its vintage. Inky red in color; full in body; muted nose. Tastes of plum, blackberry, cedar, and pepper, with an aftertaste of ash and olive. 14.8% alcohol. The mid-palate is a bit thin, which - at least to me - suggests that this kind of red needs the fruit the year did not provide.

2013 Cornerstone Cellars Chenin Blanc Stepping Stone

Napa Valley more

7/28/2015 - Dezel Likes this wine: 89 points

Cornerstone Cellars Napa Valley 2013 Chenin Blanc (SRP $25): Here’s a grape variety you don’t see every day in Napa Valley. Pale straw in color, this fragrant wine offers a fresh core of citrus fruit, ripe pear and citrus peel notes with underlying hints of honey. In the mouth, there is weight, but the wine is light on its feet with zesty acids that lift the palate, ending in a medium-long, bright finish. Overall, a fine summer refresher and a great companion to grilled or smoked poultry and fish. Only 187 cases were produced. #NapaValley #CheninBlanc #wine #winelover

Have been saving this for a long time. Has aged nicely. Well rounded now with dark red fruit and cassis. Tannins have softened up and the wine is well rounded, soft with an easy long luscious finish. I would drink now.

13.5% alcohol. This is a genuine surprise. Crimson color. Forward nose of black fruit, with a dusty quality to it, and light spice/earth notes. In the mouth, this is very attractive: restrained but forward fruit, good acidity, fine-knit tannins. This isn't complicated but, for the price, it's fantastic. B+

Wow! what a wine! 94.5 points. Deep red and black berries with some plum. Fruit, Fruit and more fruit! moderate silky tannins with little acidity, but just enough to balance the wine out. The full body is complex and fascinatingly dry for such a fruit forward wine. beautiful mouth watering finish. This is a unique 2012 Tor that is ready to drink today, but should last for a decade.

A lovely wine. Deep crimson appearance, with cherries, red currants, walnut shell, chocolate, and fancy oak on the nose. The palate is nervy, structured, and juicy, showing fine grained tannin, lovely purity, and a soft pillow of fruit. Never lets up and flat out delicious.
