California - North Coast on Snooth

  • Keenan Cabernet Franc Spring Mountain Estate 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very much a musty/viney nose. On the tongue you know this one is a brute. What black fruit may be detected by the tip of the tongue is there is swept away by earthiness and tobacco or dark chocolate flavors as the wine passes farther along the tongue and palate. Pair this one with your biggest beef roast meals. Read More

  • Complicated Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Green apple and peach aromas with a hint of petrol. Good mouthfeel, medium intensity with white grape juice, more peach, lychee and lime and a clean acidity. Finishes long. Read More

  • Krupp Brothers Veraison Napa Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Favorite from the 'Flight No.7: 'California Dreaming' had at CRU in Love Field. From the CRU Tasting Notes: 'Complex nose displaying layers of ripe cassis, dark plum, toasted vanilla spice, bay leaf, floral notes and subtle earthy aromas...The persistent, yet elegant finish is polished and round...' All three were interesting, though this one ha... Read More

  • Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Nothing very special, but nothing too bad either, more like something to depend on from a wine list when nothing else seems appropriate for a specific experience...similar to the posted Wine Maker's notes: '...full-bodied; layered with blackberry, cherry, dried plums, and a hint of cocoa...'

  • Katherine Goldschmidt Cabernet Sauvignon Crazy Creek Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This one was also gifted to me, and, several tastes into it, Im not terribly impressed. There is slight berry flavor around the edges of the tongue, but the tannin, cassis and body that I expect from a Cabernet Sauvignon is not there. Nothing offensive, here but Wheres the beef? Read More

  • 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...
