2009 Gandona Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

7/28/2015 - 1961Vintage wrote: 94 points

Very big wine! Lots of life remaining, but if you feel the urge to pop one now, decant for at least an hour or more. Dont think it is a $200 bottle, but maybe closer to $100 it would be a much better value. It is interesting that Melka makes the Brand wine right next door in a completely different way. Anyone have a preference?

Loved it. Don't think it is worth anything close to the $125 price tag at the winery(hope they read these), but it really is quite good for a Sauv Blanc. Complex notes from the nose to the finish. Score is weighted avg of price paid to enjoyment.

Not nearly as good as the first of the two bottles that I just acquired. Felt this one showed past peak performance which masked just enough of the fruit to keep it out of the 90s. Suggest drinking up.

1984 Buehler Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

This wine may have been the surprise wine of the night. For a mature lady, still had all the right moves. Yes, clearly past peak and prime, but had a firm structure and noticeable fruit.

Enjoyed with strip steaks cooked perfectly on a green egg. Wine was easily approachable, great nose and palette feel. The only thing keeping this from a higher score was the finish, which seemed a bit short. Think this wine has another 3-4 years of peak enjoyment remaining.

Still rich and buttery with nice hints of vanilla, but leaning over the edge to the downside. If you got em, dont waste em.

Consistent with the recent notes...berries on the pop with chocolate notes appearing after 15-20 minutes. Surprised to pay $65/b at a New Orleans restaurant.

Give this baby an hour after opening and bam, New Orleans term for fantastic! Great from nose to finish with ample black fruits and layers of complexity you'd expect for wines of double the tariff or more.
