Oakville Cabernet Franc 2014

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Soft nose of blackberries, black currants, cherries, spices, cedar, vanilla, licorice, chocolates, tobacco, herbs and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, earth, chocolates and peppercorn.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Franc from Oakville. Nicely balanced with a soft mouthfeel. Rich yet elegant.

I had the 2007 a few years ago, and it is very consistent. This 8 year old will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

Good by itself or with food. Tangy and interesting. Just Delicious.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Very Chablis in effect...only 20% saw time in neutral oak. Lemon pith and rind oil sing lead with fresh minerality woven into the vibrant acidic structure. Pleasant, sophisticated mouthfeel from the lees...very functional with baked/broiled delicate white fish. Ripe fruit from a great harvest certainly make this paradigm possible ;) — 3 years ago

St. Urbans-Hof Goldtröpfchen Spätlese Riesling 2016

So clean and balanced. Not a complex wine, but just a perfect balance of only a mild sweetness followed by minerality and mild acidity. A Golden Mean in all its flavors. White fruit flavors. A paradigm of Mosel Riesling. Extraordinary QPR. — 10 months ago

Wild Meadow Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Well, the 2016 has turned the page / it seems to be paradigm shift from the previous vintages (tighter, restrained, minimal oak). The ‘16 is quite voluminous with warm caramel brioche and baked lemon liquor. While golden and opulent, this is not a gentle and elegant food wine. Thus I am on the fence whether I want another bottle… I probably will get one because it’s still available and look for a better food pair. Day two, allowed for some beautiful sipping, though ;) edit: I will get another bottle…very nice sipper on day 2…mouthfeel is glorious! — 2 years ago

“This isn’t merely a good Albarino it’s a paradigm shifting wine the truly brings out the best of its grape and place. Put it next to the great mineral whites of Chablis or the Loire and it doesn’t miss a beat.” - SommSelect — 3 years ago
