  • Quivet Cellars McGah Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly pale yellow color. Quite fruity on the nosepear, banana. Fruitiness is not as obvious on the tongue, but I do get some pear and some tropical hintsagain banana. Some herbal hints mid- to rear palate. Not as acidic as most contemporary California SBs seem to be and, again, thankfully, no overpowering grapefruit flavor. Maybe that fad ... Read More

  • Artesa Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli-Borges Vineyard Rutherford 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Blackberry preserves and molasses on the nose with red licorice and dark berries and spice. This almost has a dessert quality to it with dark chocolate and espresso notes but this is a dry wine. Rich and spicy and full of acidity and brown sugar notes towards the finish, this is a true treat and ends with a load of dark earth elegance. Read More

  • Din't give it anotger thought RCKR, I had a brain fart.Back on topic, MJET add Jean Edwards Cellars to your list. I tasted through their wines this evening. Wines built to age but drink well now. Lighter styled, more traditional Napa Cabs. I really enjoyed the napa Valley, Stagecoach  and  especially the Rutherford (GIII). The Petite Sirah was n... Read More

  • MJET - Here's a list of wines that are currently out there (out of 1000's) from just one place.  All of are age worthy, most drink well early, some drink better after a year or but all sit well for anywhere from 7-8 to 15-20. Here it is, by the way I went with a $25 - $50 range - I know you spent $75 on bottle you weren't sure about - but DMCKER... Read More

  • About that Rutherford - those were great wines. One of the best values in Napa Cabs IMO. They did a lot of them and they were good. The style has changed now that Rolland is involved - they're bigger and riper so who knows. But good call. And they're still good out of the gate. Another huge production wine like that is Charles Krug. I have no id... Read More

  • Sullivan Vineyards Merlot Rutherford 2000

    Snoothrank:

    I've had several bottles from this vintage and have found them to be hit or miss. When they hit, as this one did last night, you have wonderful notes of violet, stewed meats, graphite and black licorice. I think we drink wines too young and I too am often guilty, so it's nice to grab something with a little age on it from time to time. Held up f... Read More

    Wine review by MCCellarAngel


  • Heya Red, some potential issues with Meomi would be that the wines are manipulated in the winery a bit too much, as I'm sure plenty of additives/preservatives are included in the wine, and because it's such a large production wine, the way the grapes are grown in the vineyard is very likely to support the bulk nature of the brand, so they are as...

  • Here's the funny thing:  For just a minute, Napa Ridge Cab was made from grapes from Napa Valley.  So that added to the confusion.  Franzia sometimes bought up labels that had some history or a reputation.  (His company is called Bronco, because the Franzia name was bought by Coca Cola and sold to The Wine Group.  So there's lots of history and ...

  • Good distinction. If someone else pours, I may drink a lot of stuff I wouldn't buy myself. I'm not talking about price either, just the quality of what's in the glass.A lot of what comes out of Bordeaux is fine, but more isn't. Not the classified growths, but there are hundreds of producers who are putting things into bottles that should never b... Read More
