  • 2004 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Cedar Knoll Vineyard Co.

    1 hour decant. Dark ruby color with a hint of bricking. Notes of camphor and tobacco on the nose, and a hint of mocha. Good acidity, simple underwhelming dark fruit with a hint of spice. Short finish. Just a simple tablewine, by far the least significant of any Cedar Knolls I've had. ('03 and '04 reserve, and '05 Napa were all much better)

  • 2006 Engelbrecht Els Proprietor's Blend

    Popped and poured, a bit green at first, so I decanted the rest of the bottle for an hour. Rich, dark ruby color. Nose of plum and green pepper with a hint of alcohol. Medium-bodied, light acidity, concentrated plum with hints of white pepper and sour cherry. Finish a bit short with a touch of heat. Pretty nice QPR, and a very pleasant bottle, fine tannins, should go well with food, yada yada yada, but hardly outstanding, closer to a 2004 basic haut-medoc than a 2005 classified growth. Drink now.

  • 2005 Cambria Pinot Noir Bench Break

    Decanted for an hour, surprising amount of sediment. Lighter ruby-brown color, aging quickly despite being stored in a temperature and humidity controlled cellar. Full strawberry and cola nose with hints of alcohol. Strawberry notes again dominate the palate, with a light silky palate, and notes of vanilla and raspberry. Slight secondary notes of earth and mushrooms, light, balanced acidity and a touch of heat. Still, drinking beautifully, the bottle disappeared quickly, and I wish I had 6 more of these at $25. Lengthy finish, still tasting this after 2 minutes. I would have thought this was a 1er Cru Burgundy, say 99 or 01 Gevrey, rather than a California Pinot. Fantastic QPR.
