  • 2009 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

    Thank goodness I waited a day to finish this wine. An afternoon margarita ruined my palate for the first glass.

    VERY GOOD - couldn't develop a nose profile as we dined outside and the wind was uncooperative. Wonderful wine on the palate. Wonderful dark caramelized red fruit with hint of red cherry. The tannin was a beautiful balance of silky smooth and the right amount of chalk to give a long and very full mouthfeel.

  • 2008 L'Aventure Estate Cuvée

    Secret Santa Gift 2012: Extremely dark and viscous...flavor profile mirrored color with heavy fruit and a chewy structure. A plummy licorice on the font palate and a fairly long finish...finish was much more balanced on day #2. I'm a big fan of Central Coast Syrah's and this one did not disappoint. The cabernet blend added a dimension that perhaps would suggest another couple of years and/or a longer decant for many but I'm actually a big fan of that upfront power.

  • 2009 Five/Five Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Simone 75% Black Sears, 25% Ink Grade

    A bit nondescript upon opening, however that belies the true nature of this wine. After 1.5 hours open (not decanted) this cabernet comes alive with rich plum, cassis, a bit of bright blackberry current on the mid palate followed by a wonderful brown sugar/caramel finish. Round and soft tannins with NO angularity whatsoever...rounded out with a pleasing creamy smokiness. This wine doesn't require age but clearly will age and is a tremendous example of the transformative effect of a purposeful breathing/decanting. Go somewhere else for your fruit bomb...this wine is new world refinement in the vein of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory can't help but be mesmerized.
