  • Murrieta's Well Touriga Francesca Los Tesoros Livermore Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose, dusty with a bit of beet root, and some inky, ashy minerality along with moderately imposing toasty oaks spice. Big, powerful, and mouth filling with sweetish, blue plum fruit framed with hints of ink, rhubarb, and again minerals. Packed with soft tannins and fairly powerful for the Murrieta's Well line-up, this lineup, this s... Read More

  • Murrieta's Well Los Tesoros Cabernet Franc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with more oak than fruit though late arriving notes of candied wild blackcherry does rise from the glass with time. Polished and restrained up front, with lots of rich but not weighty fruit, blueberries and candied cherry flavors are nicely done but lacks much of the earth and herb that distinguishes Cab Franc. Theres great de... Read More

    75 Zinfandel, 19 Primitivo, 6 Petite SirahHuge zin berry fruit on the nose, rich with aromas of briar, bramble, spice, and loads of red berry and blackberry fruit.

  • Murrieta's Well Meritage White Livermore Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% SemillonWaxy, with a big semillon nose showing of aromas of raw almond green hazelnut, green pear skin, and earthy base notes. With lots of acid up front, followed by good depth of flavors, this comes across as complex with orchard fruits, earthy accents, and hints of older wood. With a little air it develops a slightly ...

  • Wente the Nth Degree Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Cocoa, briar, cigar box, and dark fruit which is both a bit plummy and reminiscent of black currant preserves greet the nose. Theres a noticeable hit of oak, spicy and with the smell of burnt sugar that builds in the glass. Fairly rich, with good power, and really fine acids that help keep everything bright on the palate. The base of tannins are... Read More

  • Darcie Kent Petite Sirah Madden Ranch 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy with a touch of grass accenting the subtle wood spice and soft cooked plum , blackberry and licorice aromas of the nose. Broad and bright and rich with tart plum and candied blackberry fruit on entry. there are well managed, soft tannins here adding nice support though this never becomes thick or chewy. A touch of leather and earth adds so... Read More

  • Concannon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Rather oaky on the nose with a deep base of earth and black spice. In the mouth this shows off juicy acids and soft tannins that help to support fruit that is perhaps a touch simple but very precise and clear all mineral tinged and slightly orange toned black currant and wild blackberry fruit. This has a fabulous texture, fresh and old school wi... Read More

  • Steven Kent Chardonnay Livermore Valley Merrillie 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A bit low key on the nose but with beautiful citrus aromas, a hint of grapefruit and lime accenting apple fruit with fine oak spice and creamy shadings. Bright and rather crisp on entry then turning very creamy in the mouth with vanilla laced apple pie and lemon flavors. This is broad yet with enough acid to keep it fresh and engaging, finishing...
