  • Smith Madrone Riesling Napa Valley Estate Bottled 1995


    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


    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 2007


    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


    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

  • Paso Robles Trip Notes: West of PasoThis was a trip my wife and I had planned with another couple months in advance. None of us had spent any time in Paso before, and the anticipation was very high indeed. It seemed the more I read about the area and its wine scene, the more I gained the impression that the West side of town (from just north of ... Read More

  • Smith-Madrone Napa Valley Riesling Riesling United States California Napa Valley 2009


    Light straw-green in color with aromas of green apple, citrus, honeydew and a hint of petrol. Tart green apple fruit with citrus finishing dry with refreshing acidity and a nice mineral note. A benchmark California Riesling that could take on the best of Alsace and give them a run for their money. Will continue to improve in the cellar for at le... Read More
