Rutherford; Napa on Snooth

  • Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Bosché Vineyard 1980

    Snoothrank:

    I was gifted this wine by my brother-in-law who found it at an estate sale. So, provenance is questionable. This wine is clearly well on the downward slope. Initial impression is that it is pretty flaccid and a bit tart. Subsequent tastes, though, seem to say to me that there is nothing really all that bad about it. The tartness does seem to...

  • Freemark Abbey Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Nose broadcasts oaky, vanilla, melon hints. On the tongue, most of that is confirmed. Strong fruitinessagain, melon with some tropical fruits and, maybe some stone fruitsgive the wine an almost sweet characteristic. There is some acid detected on the back of the throat which saves this wine. Read More

  • Provenance Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Herbal, viney nose but with some hints of berry fruit. Initial hit of currants on the tip of the tongue. Then, there are hits from tannin and acid. A perfectly functional wine, but it does not seem to have much depth and complexity. Additional air seemed to calm down the tannin, but that only seemed to add to the berry fruit. Read More

  • Sullivan Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a lovely ruby color in the glass with a dark indigo towards the center, classic Cabernet. The nose is not at all what I expected, rather than a blast of fruit like so many Cabernets today, this one had aromas of plum, raisin and graphite, overlaid with some notes of vanilla. The taste is quite nice, very warm and approachable, some... Read More

  • Piña Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Firehouse Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Dark ruby and concentrated with an aromatic core of black cherry and prune which vacillates in the glass between jam and a bowl of very ripe whole fruit. The fruit is accented by allspice and spiced meat. The palate is medium-plus in body with matching tannins of fine grain and chalk. Theres more complexity on the palate than on the nose right n...

  • Provenance Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Another good value from 2011, this wine offers black cherry, moist cereal grain, dark spice and brown sugar on the nose and palate. Its full-bodied with both prominent acidity and firm tannins of fine grain and chalk. A couple of years in the cellar will soften the tannins and release additional depth. 90pts Read More

  • Frank Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Winston Hill 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This wine, decadent and unctuous, may show less vintage influence than any other Rutherford 2011 Ive tasted. Aromas include milk chocolate, coconut, ripe black currants, brown spice and oak. Its full-bodied in the mouth yet balanced by acidity and fine-grained, grippy tannins. Flavors include mint, tart black currant, spice, oak and coconut. 92pts Read More
