2011 Trinchero Meritage

Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/21/2015 - TEDL Does not like this wine: 85 points

The fruits/jams were the lead on our palates with tannins coming on as well. Overall just good for us due to the dominant fruits and we usually go for a Meritage. There is moderate sediment in the bottle.

We decided to go for a young Insignia thought this was not the best vintage we have had. Seemed... normal. Not outstanding lie other vintages. Maybe time will help.

2007 Revana Cabernet Sauvignon

St. Helena more

9/14/2014 - TEDL wrote: 90 points

Stayed tight for quite a while although it was decanted for 90 minutes before we had our first taste. By the end of the meal (3 hours after decanting) it finally has relaxed and the complex flavors came thru nicely.
