7/4/2015 - MattMauldin wrote: 89 points

Clear dark ruby color. Aromas of black cherry, rhubarb, dried lavender and cola. Rich on the palate with cherry and red currant fruit, fennel, licorice, earth, and hints of minerality. Juicy earthy tannins, finishing with notes of vanilla and fennel. As this has aged it's lost some of the stemmy complexity. Despite the high alcohol it has decent balance.

Walla Walla tastings: Aromas of lavender, black currant, cedar- pretty aromatics. On the palate this shows juicy red apple skin and black cherry fruit, with silky floral flavor and hints of spice, and integrated cedar-oak notes. Layered and complex, with silky broad tannin and full depth and complexity on the finish. Outstanding.

Corkage at a favorite local restaurant. Great with an assortment of small plates- mussels (in a buttery garlicky lemon & cilantro broth), oysters, brussels/artichoke, fish tacos, mushroom bao buns. Wine showed light gold color. Marked aromas of slate, lime zest, hibiscus. Hits the palate with a racy intensity, showing richness to compliment its bright acidity and angular structure. Hints of spice. Nice depth throughout. Very nice.

2007 Smith-Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon

Spring Mountain District more

7/2/2015 - MattMauldin Likes this wine: 94 points

I can always tell if a wine is drinking very well if my wife asks for a second glass, and then a third... She doesn't profess the be a wine expert but has a very good palate nonetheless. Popped and poured with a decanting pour spout. It showed a deep garnet color. Aromas of crushed stone, dried violet, cassis, blackberry and tobacco- nicely complex with a lot of secondary emergence. This has a striking creamy silky texture, and shows bright currant fruit, with layers of mineral, clove spice, black tea and cedar. Great complexity and elegance. Fine tannins. Very nice intensity of flavors on the finish. SM can take some time to come around- this is showing very well now, still very young for SM. Exceptional.
