2015 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Freemark Napa Cabernet is the best QPR Cab in the valley. Lots of everything going on but also very drinkable. Solid cedar, spice and dark berry. I also love that it is very bright and perfectly designed to pair with food.

Not enjoyable at all - very disappointed. No harmony or balance. Very weedy with intense barnyard overtones. Where is the fruit? After one day in the cellar - it just fell apart.

Given the price of this wine, the length of time on the waiting list (great marketing!) and the ridiculous shipping charges for wines (over $20 per bottle) and you have to order and pay for a year in advance - I'm done.

I'm getting tired of wineries with highly allocated wines, nickel and diming their core customer base to death. Good luck

High pH, pretty good acidity, tons of funk. 13 was the hottest year on record at this point and Christophe crops very low so the weedy aspect is part of the deal too. The meaty, gamey profile is definitely unique to this small, 10 mile area.

2010 Sokol Blosser Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir Dundee Hills

Tasted at the winery. Not normally a big fan of rose in general, but this one tickled my fancy. Aged on the lees - for a rose? Very cool idea. They managed to take a non-red and make it soft and silky. Really liked the texture of this wine. Medium acidity with a palate of mostly watermelon (first time for me) and strawberry, slightly off-dry. What an unusual palate. Worth giving it a try, if you are looking for something a little different.
