  • Smith Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Fruity and quite intense on the nose, with big black fruit that is deep and ripe topped with herb and carob aromas. This feels a bit like Bordeaux in the mouth, ripe yet perfectly clear, with great cut and layers of wild cherry, plum, and blackberry fruits. There are firm tannins, but this is so well balanced they are certainly unobtrusive. The... Read More

  • Smith Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Very true to type, this shows modest evolution when compared with the later releases offering up wonderful plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit framed with integrating mocha oak notes and topped with nice green herbal elements. In the mouth, it shows incipient softening from age, though the tannins remains a touch obvious. There is a broadeni... Read More

  • Smith Madrone Chardonnay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Tight, lean and somewhat reticent on the nose with a nice butchers wax top note over ripe, soft peach, orange and apple fruits. On the palate there's some nutty oak here and a touch of wood tannin under the core of fairly ripe fruit that shows hints of apple butter and rich, sweet almond-tinged apple fruit. The texture is a touch softer than the... Read More

  • Smith Madrone Chardonnay 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Cool on the nose with a very fine, crisp orchard fruit aroma that is supported by almond butter notes. With good acidity offering a nice mineral wash on entry, this builds to exhibit lovey fruit that once again shows a bit of nutty but not terribly oaky character on the palate. The finish is clean, focused and mineral-rich with some aromatic, l... Read More

  • Smith Madrone Riesling Napa Valley Estate Bottled 1995

    Snoothrank:

    This has just a beautiful nose, with green tea layered over dried lime zest topped with an emerging hint of petrol. Air brings out suggestions of some treacle and honey sweetness as well. On the palate, the bright acids support a broad and supple mouthful of apricot and lime fruit that shows the slightest honeyed edge. This is long and super-bri... Read More

  • Smith Madrone Riesling Napa Valley Estate Bottled 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of apple fruit here. This smells like an apple barn laced with fine mineral and herbal suggestions. In the mouth there is an early dried apple note followed by lime fruit across a mid palate that is dry, firm, crisp and mineral-laced with plenty of steely acid driving the almost green plum fruit through the finish. Nicely perfumed in the m... Read More

  • Smith Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A little earthy, a little leafy and mineral-accented gorgeous blackcurrant fruit greets the nose capped with hints of mocha and lightly roasted coffee. This is tight, lean, and focused on the palate delivering pure, rich, ripe yet totally transparent fruit supported by wonderfully ripe tannins that poke through just a hint on the finish, showing...

  • Smith Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Very fresh on the nose with an early touch of light mocha cream, some smoke, fines herbs with a nice minty top note over bright black fruits. On entry this shows bright acids and feels remarkably transparent, bathing the tongue with bright, tart, blackberry fruit that has just a little medicinal edge. The finish is nice, rich and soft with exce... Read More

  • I was going to put this in the Whatcha Drinking Tonight thread. But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing. It comes from high up atop the Yorkville Highlands in the Anderson Valley  which is in ... Read More
