Shared with us by a great friend. Paired amazingly well with surf and turf of filet mignon and shrimp scampi. The wines almost creamy smoothness was unexpected and made the pairing go so well.

May be past peak. A lot of alcohol when first opened. Mellowed and showed more fruit 1 hour after decanting.

Enjoyed at the Rue. Lavender dominated the nose. A real special wine.

For an inexpensive "house" chardonnay, this wine typically doesn't disappoint. My wife particularly likes how much oak it gives off. This bottle just seemed to have too much alcohol on the nose that prevented the underlying flavor from hitting your palate.

Solid cab, but a bit unremarkable in terms of complexity given the price.

Vast improvement over the first bottle from this producer we had earlier tonight. This reaffirms my longtime appreciation for Robert Stemmler Pinots.

While not corked, there was a musty odor that dominated.

Took this bottle to a "special occasion" restaurant where corkage is permitted. The meal was outstanding and this wine paired beautifully with the food, particularly the venison sausage stuffed quail. It was decanted upon arrival and it was a good 45 minutes before we drank. It was everything you want in a big, bold Napa Cab. The wine was well-balanced and had a long smooth finish.

Had this on a cold rainy Saturday afternoon with friends after a long dog walk. It warmed everyone up with it's sweet cherry nose and peppery spices. Our guests were Oregon Pinot lovers and they raved over this wine.

Blackberry and smoked gouda dominate. This wine is balanced and full. The tannins don't overpower.

Had 95-97 vertical of this Cab. The 95 is remarkably more brown in hue compared to the others. Barnyard dominates the nose. Most guests did not enjoy immediately. However, this really balances out with time to air. I mean 2-3 hours. At that point, this became a real worthy entry in the tasting.

Had 95-97 vertical of this Cab. 1997 was outstanding after it opened up. Cigar and leather were dominant flavors.

Had 95-97 vertical of this Cab. 1996 is the most approachable. Good balance among fruit and tannins.

Still young, but shows signs of a true winner. Cocoa was the dominant flavor at the finish.

Unless this wine is ice cold, alcohol is the dominant taste.

This was overwhelmingly barnyard to the nose when first opened. However, after decanting it dissipated and became a crowd favorite in a vertical tasting of this wine with the 1995, 1996 and 1997 vintages.

When it came to room temp, this wine got slightly sweeter than i prefer. Chilled, the wine is pleasant with little complexity.

You'd think you were eating chocolate covered cherries as opposed to drinking wine. Wow - this was all it was made out to be by the enthusiastic sales person at the local wine shop.

After several hours, this really opened up nicely. Faint hints of vanilla and butterscotch come to mind.

Deep ruby red in color. The oak was very pronounced after first opening, both in the nose and on the palette. With time and some air, this mellowed into a very pleasant, balanced wine. Leather and chocolate alongside hints of blackberry and cherry. A quality wine drinking very well at this time.

This is what you look for in a Cali chard. Buttery smooth and the oak is there but not overpowering.

Hint of coffee and cocoa. Finish is unremarkable. Aerated from bottle to glass and did not experience the barnyard quality of a previous tasting.

I can usually get talked into a high 80s rating on most any decent Zin. Not so in this case. The nose was unremarkable if not for a slight hint of dog breath. No intensity of fruit here. All tannin with some oak feedback. Proves you do get what you pay for.

This is as good an everyday Chardonnay as there is. Consistent with very good balance between oak and fruit. The nose is clean with hints of pear and citrus that really come through when it hits your palette.

This is a very straightforward version of Carneros Chard. Nice balance of butter, oak and fruit. Apple and pear are the most predominate.

This is worthy of House Pinot status given the quality at a $19 everyday price.

Just a bit darker than a blush wine. Once it got some air, this was a quality Pinot with subtle strawberry and cherry flavors. Very balanced on the finish.

This became a leading candidate for our "house" chard. It had the oakiness to balance the fruit with enough complexity to warrant consideration despite it's value price.

Had this always reliable maker with roast chicken. It's as buttery as it looks with enough oak to blanche the citrus and pear fruit flavors.
