Pleasant, with perhaps a touch too much acidity for me, and I enjoy acidity. Tropical notes.

2007 Pax Syrah Cuvée Christine

Sonoma County more

4/5/2015 - AccaDacca Likes this wine: 93 points

Age has treated this well. Dark fruits, with a smooth, round mouthfeel, long finish. Expressive, and possibly still gets better with some bottle age.

2010 Saxum Broken Stones

Paso Robles Red Rhone Blend more

4/3/2015 - AccaDacca Likes this wine: 92 points

Brawny, but not in an unbalanced way. Needs more time to settle down, but clearly a wine for those who like them big.

1992 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon The Montelena Estate

Napa Valley more

3/21/2015 - AccaDacca Likes this wine: 95 points

Terrific Montelena with some age on it. PnP, travesty it wasn't decanted because it opened up nicely over time. Dead ringer for BDX. Will continue to age nicely.

Wonderful, mature California Cab. Opened up nicely after a few hours, well balanced, plenty of fruit and tannins, with moderate finish. Some dirt, some cedar, quite nice.

Really fun, enjoyable wine. Excellent with food, with a nice bit of acidity and ample fruit. Can relate to the beaujolais comparisons. Definitely a different experience.

2011 Longplay Pinot Noir Lia's Vineyard

Chehalem Mountains more

11/15/2014 - AccaDacca Likes this wine: 90 points

Similar experience in that started out acidic, a bit metallic. But over the course of two days really opened up to a very nice medium bodied wine with lasting finish. Well balanced and for under $30 a real treat.

2007 Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve

Napa Valley more

10/5/2014 - AccaDacca Likes this wine: 90 points

Drank over two nights. Big, powerful wine, but not overwhelming. Fruit is expressive, but not jammy, with enough structure to balance it out. Will wait a few years to see if it settles down a bit, shows some secondary notes.

2008 Kapcsandy Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon (Grand Vin) State Lane Vineyard

10/10/2014 - AccaDacca Likes this wine: 96 points

Truly amazing wine, rich but not over the top. Impeccable balance and will only get better with time. Hung well vs Abreu and Harlan, which is truly saying something.

Rich, luscious chardonnay, with enough acidity to give it backbone. Much better at room temperature as it really fleshes out.

Short decant. Well balanced wine, though a bit dry as fruit has moved to the background a bit. A bit of earth and overall a pleasing profile.

2008 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Franc

Sonoma County more

9/22/2014 - AccaDacca Does not like this wine: 86 points

Alcohol very upfront on this, masking the fruit and a bit overwhelming. Hoped a few days would soften it, but the alcohol only slightly softened. As another reviewer noted, sort of one dimensional, no secondary nuance.
