California - North Coast on Snooth

  • Peju Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This is an intriguing wine interwoven with contrasting flavors working magic together. There are baked red cherries, fresh red currant, cinnamon candy, smoke, dried meat, savory spice and dark, dried flowers on the nose. The fresh palate has medium-plus body and slightly grippy tannins of fine powder. Slightly sweet, chewy red cherries are surro... Read More

  • Wm. Harrison Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fruit-forward and delectable, the nose proffers chocolate mint, huckleberry, black cherry, brown spice and mocha. The palate is full-bodied and replete with fine, powdery and chalky tannins that frame very long flavors of oak, chocolate mint, dry herb, tart blackberry, spice and mocha. Youll have to wait to receive this wine, scheduled for a May... Read More

  • Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Bosche Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The unusually cool, wet vintage gave Napas winemakers a taste of life in Bordeaux. This wine does the same for tasters. The nose is immediately complex and captivating with dusty, tart black currant, huckleberry, coffee, dry earth, cocoa nib, dry leaves, dried rose petals and mint easily discernible. Freshness plus fine, powdery and chalky tanni... Read More

  • Inglenook Rubicon Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Opaque ruby-black coloring signals the power of this surprising 2011. The nose is dense with dusty black currant and mocha. Medium-plus body and generous acidity that harmonizes with the intense, long-lasting flavors and framing tannins (dry, slippery graphite powder and grippy light grains). The dusty black currant and mocha are joined in the m... Read More

  • Ravenswood Zinfandel Sonoma Old Vines 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A bit tight on the nose with slightly smoky and toasty wood spice aromas layered over slightly beef, plum framed medicinal cherry fruit. rather light and fresh in the mouth with an ease about it and lovely flavors of raspberry and cherry layered over the well judged wood notes. The acids are nicely done here, supportive and helping to drive the ... Read More

  • Ravenswood Zinfandel Old Vines Napa Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A touch balsamic on the nose with warm, powder sugar covered black berry and raspberry aromas and just a hint of wood smoke adding detail. A bit thick and chewy on entry, this shows lovely depth on the palate with a bit of black spice and hints of briar wood layered over brambly fruit. A bit on the tannic side, but certainly remaining in harmony... Read More
