Grieve Family Winery

Double Eagle Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Lovely pale gold with lightest silver green. Big nose of full throttle gooseberry, cooked lemon, grilled grapefruit and gardenia. Round, full mouthfeel turns lean in a citric instant as it pivots deftly to lemon pith, grapefruit peel, ginger, lemongrass and tart lime, with secret tangelo intentions. Juicy and abundant, but lively and bracing in a way that keeps it focused. Impressive Sauvignon Blanc from Napa. .

Bravante Vineyards

Trio Napa Velley Merlot Blend 2012

Big mint chocolate, spruce, damson reduction, cinnamon dusted cedar, ripest blackberry, violet, vanilla bean and even a shadow of juniper on this warm and fuzzy Howell Mountain nose. Medium mouthfeel echoes the damson, presenting bay leaf, smoky raspberry, a touch of graphite and blueberry skins in a tightly rolled and endlessly layered sub-strata that stretches to the horizon. #Trio #bravantevineyards #howell #howellmountain #napavalleyred #napawine #Napa — 4 years ago

Double Diamond (Schrader)

Oakville Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Unbending purple-black. Lovely nose of lavender and thyme, dusty black cherry, dried blackberry and ripe black currant, as well as a lovely mint moment of varietal introspection. Vanilla and cedar remain in check, as oak bolsters without overwhelming. A thing of beauty. Intense black cherry and currant wash over a scree of firm tannins. Great backbone, stellar integration. Strangely, I’m drinking it, but looking forward to the next bottle? Hmm. The purity of the fruit shines through with raspberry and dried strawberry notes making spirit cameos alongside Connecticut tobacco, plum and Roobios tea, but also an unusual citrus and leather-pepper. I wasn’t expecting so many differing fruit profiles , and such un-manipulated purity of grape expression. Great job! No need for makeup and plastic surgery for this action star! #schrader #doublediamond #schradercellars #napacab #napawine #napawinning #oakville #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv #schraderdoublediamond — 2 years ago

Teaderman Vineyards

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Still has everything it needs to age further! Toasty, herbaceous nose of baker’s chocolate, rosemary, oregano, dried black currant, graphite-infused plum bordering on prune, dried blackberry, Madura tobacco, licorice and dark cedar notes. Elegant mouthfeel with chewy tannins, tarragon, cigar, black currant, bramble, graphite shades, dark minerality, blackberry. Cinnamon bark, black cherry, figs, and more for a long and satisfyingly complex finish.#Teaderman #Napa #NapaCab #cab #oakville #TeadermanVineyards #wine #napawine #finesse #depth — 4 years ago

Harlan Estate

The Maiden Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Heavenly blackberry and rich plum conjure up raspberry reductions that smoke a little but stay focused. A stony and crisp, almost granite texture followed by a baked currant and toffee, aromatically. American coffee, sweet licorice and oaky cedar bordering on pine, with cherry spiraling to a bitter, dark, baker’s chocolate that expands endlessly. Dense, rich and layered endlessly. #themaiden #harlanestate #harlan #billharlan #napawine #napa #napavalley2005 #napavalleyforever — 4 years ago
