Mount St. Helena
Leather, with cherry and anise on the nose. Medium attack. Very nice and fruity with flavors of plums and blackcurrant. A wine with good body and drying tannins on the finish.

Hi everyone. This is my first post on the boards. My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit. We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

I'm thinking of the "larger" more established wine makers, who try and bring their A-game across the spectrum of their varietals.To me the sign of a good wine maker and overall brand is someone who you can trust ev...

Cabernet Sauvignon: It’s one of the big daddies of the wine world, and the wines from California, in particular Napa Valley, can compete with the best, and have the price tags to prove it. We can lament the change that has occurred with the vast majority of Napa Cabernets over the past decade or two, or we can simply continue to look for quality... Read More

Well it's official. I'll be going to Napa from July 6th through the 10th for my first official vacation for over three years. Got a sweet room at a place in St. Helena and I'm looking for recommendations of what the best places are to taste. I plan on spending at least two days in the Valley tasting, with a day trip out to Santa Cruz mountain... Read More
