5/19/2015 - jeffm_fla Does not like this wine: 81 points

Funky nose of roadkill skunk. Palate has some mineral and a bit of pineapple juice, but I couldn't get past the skunk. Some may like the "earthiness"...

Very good wine - favorite for the night. The fruit is not as pushy as some more recent vintages, but still plenty going on.

2012 Quilceda Creek Red Wine Columbia Valley

Red Bordeaux Blend more

4/5/2015 - jeffm_fla Likes this wine: 90 points

A little green, but not really in a bad way. Not as soft as I would have expected from Quilceda's red blend. I think it should probably have another year to really come together. This wine is always a very good choice for the price.

soft and flavorful with none of the green edge of most 2011s. I liked this much more than I expected to.

2010 Vineyard 7 & 8 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate

Spring Mountain District more

3/12/2015 - jeffm_fla wrote: 88 points

Very tannic. I know it is young, so I decanted (which I rarely do). There is some Napa fruit and structure, but I thought it veered to a bit too much toward green wood. Will wait a couple years for my second bottle.

2008 Pont de Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard

Napa Valley more

3/5/2015 - jeffm_fla Likes this wine: 93 points

Still a very tasty wine, but I'm not sure it is going to get much better. I will drink my remaining few bottles over the next year or two. I may have overrated it before. Seems very good, but not as plush and rich as I remembered.

2011 Morlet Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Cœur de Vallée Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard

Oakville more

3/3/2015 - jeffm_fla Likes this wine: 92 points

Surprisingly good for a 2011. This wine is not a Cab Sauv, rather the blend was about 2/3 Cabernet Sauvignon and 1/3 Cabernet Franc. Rather than adding green flavors, the Cab Franc seemed to round out the wine and it was balanced with nice flavor and no green notes. Not a plush wine like many Beckstoffer To Kalons, but quite good.

2009 The Mascot

Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend more

Disappointing. No real fruit on the nose or palate. Tannic, but softened with time and air, acidic, a little cedar and a little green wood.

2005 Kuleto Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Danielli

Napa Valley more

2/23/2015 - jeffm_fla Likes this wine: 91 points

Classic Kuleto mountain fruit nose. Primary fruit recedes a bit on the palate with hints of tobacco and leather. Light/thin mouthfeel and long finish of stewed fruit.

2012 Scarecrow Cabernet Sauvignon Monsieur Ètain

Rutherford more

2/6/2015 - jeffm_fla Likes this wine: 93 points

Wow! Quite a fruit bomb now, but a lot of other stuff going on as well. Goes right up to the line, but never crosses - ripe, but not overripe, bright fruit that doesn't reach stewed,etc. Very young now (I should have decanted), but a really nice effort. Can't wait to see what the Scarecrow is like for 2012!

Interesting flavors but fruit was fading and not much acidity. Drink now. Liked the smoky and more savory notes, but I think it could have been a little brighter.

Some old school green wood on the nose, fruit follows. Tannic, probably needs some time. Good for the price.
