Family Estate Grown St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This vertical was Spott on... lol
All textbook Cabernets (Bordeaux blends) operating at a very high level. The wines appropriately represented their region, as well as their vintage. It was like worlds sharpest conductor instructing his/her orchestra never skipping a beat. The 12 Spottswoode was soft, juicy and deliciously ripe. The 13 Continuum a bit dry with firm tannin and a commanding presence at the dinner table. The 14 J. Davies- Jamie was calm, collected and fragile with silky integrated tannins, and long uplifting finish. And of course two grilled 16 ounce bone in ribeyes with a classic hollandaise sauce and baked potato.

Nine Suns

Napa Valley Red Blend 2014

Amazingly pure fruit and open knit inviting tannins for a’14. Dark as midnight in the glass, a thread of graphite unites flavors of blueberry, cassis, oak and dense blackberry jam. This wine has a flavor profile much like Continuum in terms of depth and polish with perhaps a bit more concentration at this stage. Appreciated the opportunity to enjoy this @Jason Chang — 5 years ago

Still never tried these guys.. they read like they're ethereal, but densely layered in complexity.. enticing.

Magnum. This seemed to be the favorite of our group, although I preferred the other magnum (Continuum). What a lucky 'disagreement' to have. — 5 years ago

Yikes on #5! At that price point I would have expected better.

@Carl Fischer i think it was off. It was a non-labeled bottle from the estate. I've had the 2012 and this was nothing like it

Definitely a steak wine or hold for awhile.


Riesling 2009

Ron R

Somewhat off-putting nose which is dominated by petrol. The palate however is on the opposite end of the continuum. The first thing that hits you is the viscosity and weight. It possesses an uncommon density for a Riesling. Notes of brown sugar and a hint of nutmeg combine with delicate acidity. Very sweet finish, similar to a dessert wine. A very pleasant surprise. — 4 years ago

Thanks @Dawn Emory. We love art in many forms. We also consider wine to be an art-form. We are still renovating, but piece by piece, it’s coming together. Happy new year.

That looks interesting. I rarely hear a Reinhessen described as dense. Was this an estate wine?

This is an estate wine, @Byron C Mayes. I did a little research and found that wine Spectator rated it 95 pts. My knowledge of Riesling is wafer-thin, but I know a good wine when I taste it.

Opus One

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

If you read my other post....I'm thinking it's (partially) me. Another wine that I usually rate high, but my rating falls short from my typical Opus rating. After my disappointment with the Continuum, I opened this. Was more pleased, but these are two wines I typically would rate very odd I rated both on the lower 9 end of the scale. Must be me. — 5 years ago
