Smooth, elegant on the palate with a bit of austere spice and a pleasant, oak note, plenty of earth and a crisp earthiness, good acidity and ripe cherry and raspberry fruit. Excellent balance and approachability. Read More

  • Liparita 'V Block' Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of blue in the color moves it away from red. Very little fruit on entrysome blueberry, some cassis. Maybe I would describe it as dried fruitplumwithout sweetness. More savoriness than I normally get in CS. Tannins are quite stiff. Read More
