this is just deeeelicious. harmonious blend of zinfandel, petite sirah, charbono and syrah. the zinfandel definitely is in the forefront but there is a nice tannic backbone from the other grapes which helps mask the 15.2% alcohol. Had this with BBQ chi...

HI. Thanks for the response. I was planning on trying to make appointments at wineries so being able to drop in is not essential to us. Below are some of the wineries/tasting rooms I've come across in my searches that I'm considering. However, I don't know what to make a priority and I'm sure I'm missing others I should consider. Healdsburg:... Read More
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 ran up to Napa for a few days to get away and taste some wines from places I'd never been (most of them). I went during BottleRock Napa, but alas, didn't partake in an y of those festivities. Some great finds, so I have listed/linked any of the wines I rated over 90 points, should anyone have interest, or their own thoughts on the wines. Wit... Read More
Having just returned from a week in the valley, I'm working on pulling together some content focusing on Napa Cabernets. I started tasting through some of the samples I have in the office yesterday and just wanted to mention some of the better examples I found in the $20-$35 rangeTop of the heap is the 2009 Stepping Stone by Cornerstone $35, pre...

California Bordeaux ... Read More

I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week. So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent. Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a... Read More
Great Value small production Cabernet Sauvignon. Stay clear from the '08, get the '09! It has really nice balance and structure to it. I don't like flimsy cabs. Great Napa Cab expression for a good value! Oh by the way, beautiful bottle to have on the table! Read More
Sauvignon Blanc nose, Chardonnay flavors - perfect combo. Read More
This is an all-timer. If you're into rich, tannic, yet fruit forward cabernet....this is a trophy. Truly, a wine geek's sought after cult wine. Expensive, yes. But what a knee buckler. It's also a wine that will knock it out of the park right now, or age beautifully for the next 1, 5, 10, 20 or 30 years if you wish. Have it with steak, chocolat... Read More
