2009 Seaver Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon GTS Nancy's Fancy

Diamond Mountain more

9/7/2014 - pkbackman Likes this wine: 93 points

Only getting better. Still slight herbal flavors, but the fruit (bright fruit) is really pushing through. Nice acidity on this as well, and a great finish.

One of the best Cabs I've had in a while. Brambly dark berries, smooth touch of vanilla, long finish. Flipping fantastic

2007 Domaine Giraud Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition

Red Rhone Blend more

9/2/2013 - pkbackman Likes this wine: 90 points

This seriously needs at least an hour to 2 hour decant. It turns into a completely different wine. The blue fruit starts to really ooze out and coats the palate. Really tasty and somewhat savory wine

this was an excellent bottle of Pinot. Delicious. Mouth watering fruit. Smooth. Would put it in the same class as the Sojourn SVD's.

2006 Oriel Pinot Noir Jasper

Sonoma Coast more

This bottle was very enjoyable. Smooth fruit, mostly cranberry, with a touch of raked leaves. Little hot to start, but it blew off after 30 minutes or so.

2012 Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc

Marlborough more

7/10/2013 - pkbackman Likes this wine: 90 points

I thought this was the best Sauvignon Blanc I've had this year. Typical Marlborough nose. Palate is crisp and mouth watering, with a cool sourness to its fruit. Perfect Summer wine.

2010 Carlisle Zinfandel Old Vines

Russian River Valley more

2/2/2013 - pkbackman Likes this wine: NR

Fruit forward, new world Zin. Vanilla on the nose and palate. Quite tasty. Smooth body and finish. Had side by side with a Bedrock Evangelho. Both were excellent, but this wine was more refined while the Bedrock was "untamed". Cant go wrong with either though.

My last of 6. Such an easy drinking, fruit driven Pinot. Delicious, but hardly simple. Solid QPR at $25

I could see waiting on this, but it really was drinking well now. Bright berry fruit on the attack, with a smooth savory finish. Mouthwatering. Slightly rustic undertones gives it an edge. Very enjoyable.

2 hour decant. It was singing. Big bursts of bright fruit, with nice tannins. No need to wait on this in my opinion. Christmas Eve wine and it was perfect

If you want a fruit forward, delicious, Pinot Noir, you can not go wrong with Sojourn. And the Sangiacomo may be the best of the bunch. Drinking well now

I thought this was unbelievably good Sweet without being unctions. Apricots and honey with a yeastyness (?) that reminded my of scones or biscuits. Crisp acidity. Absolutely loved it.
