  • Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District Yverdon 2006


    Very attractive red-plum color. Unusual, herbal nose. Lots of jammy fruitblackberry, currant--on entry. As the wine passes back I get an interesting chalky sensationmouthfeel sensation, not flavor. This is, probably, Spring Mountain tannin. Fortunately, the fruitiness dissipates as the wine move towards the back of the mouth where I get mor... Read More

  • Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District Yverdon 2008


    Nice dark ruby color. Pleasant nose of dark fruits/berries. Very pleasant introduction on the tonguetypical cabernet sauvignon flavors of black currant. Maybe just a tad sweeter than normal, but that passes as soon as the wine leaves the tip of the tongue. The thing that I find surprising about this wine is the very tame tannin. My experien...

    Wine review by EMark

  • Rckr, you'll notice that word "epiphany" in posts.  ... ... good wines by that point (Yverdon CS sticks out in my mind, the estate now sold and resold for the vineyard), had some sense of different grapes and varieties, and I wouldn't have been offered the BV if my parents and our friends didn't know I enjoyed and appreciated it. Here's an epi...

  • I remember mine completely, just  like it was yesterday, all except for the producer which I think was Tyrrell, but after 40+ yrs the name has faded.  What remains vivid is the experience.  The place was in Freemantle, just outside Perth, in 1976.  Hungry for a good meal, myself and 2 friends chanced upon this spot.  It was owned by a WW2 refuge...

    Forum post in the topic Wines that Sing

  • Hard to say what it exactly is, but we've all had moments when wines were really open and "singing" maybe after a quick decant, or hours of air, they just started to open and catch fire. I can think of quite a few wines that stick out in this way, though it seems like a very unpredictable phenomenon. Also, what the heck is going on with wines th... Read More

  • Here's the funny thing:  For just a minute, Napa Ridge Cab was made ... but were cash strapped, like Yverdon (which went out of business and sold the winery and land to Terra Valentine, who added adjoining land to it--TV has now sold out, too).  Or someone would discontinue a wine (Grey Reisling from Mirassou or something like that rings a bel...

  • My family moved to California when I was 3 1/2.  The wine industry was ... ... Napa Cabs.  One was Yverdon, a now-defunct winery.  My father bought it at Trader Joe's in Santa Ana when they were more of a rack jobber in the wine business, buying merchandise for cash from stressed companies.  It was good, and I remember the label.  But the wine...

  • Mine started about six years ago when I met my wife.  We played volleyball in an adult league against each other and hit it off at the bar after.  We never drank wine together (only lots of beer) and the subject never came up.  We had been "dating" a few weeks when I invited her over to make us dinner.  She said she would bring a bottle of wine....

  • Fox, I did not know about the changes at TV.  Thanks for posting the link. ... ...  I do remember the Yverdon label, and, probably, had it once or twice.  Gosh, your family shopped at the Santa Ana Trader Joe's--at the corner of Main and 14th?  It ain't there anymore.  Next you'll be telling me where UCSB is.Just returned from the Chino Hills ...
