    Snoothrank:

Considerable mineral or graphite mid-to-rear palate. Tannins are, presumably, quite resolved. Acid adds refreshness and really helps, but an unfortunate bitterness (alcohol?) detrac... Read More

  • Araucano Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Colchagua Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Zesty and herbal notes of black pepper and blackberry with an intriguing smoky cedar note. In the mouth this carries quite a bit of fruit, with black cherry and blackberry preserves, milk chocolate and cinnamon on the finish. Spicy, earthy and fruity in one refreshing package. Read More

Merlot and '13 Cabernet Sauvignon.  Both of these were "Spring Mountain District" bottlings.  The CS was in the low $60s.  So, not as cost effective as the S-M.  I know that Barnett has some SVD bottlings of CS, but they get a bit too spendy for me.  I like th...

    Snoothrank:

    So, the 2010 Poujeaux was expected to mature a tad earlier - say 2015-2018, so, ... (wood again perhaps). At 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine has some backbone. Great now, but could last another 5-10 years. 89 points Read More
