Harlan - The Maiden
A well made and well delineated wine. For the price one can probably do better but this is quite good, just not exceptional.
Snowden - Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
I wish I had more of this. Quite elegant, Bordeaux style. It may be majority cabernet but it exceeds the finesse of a blend of the cab cultivars. Like velvet, great structure, long finish, getting better every day. Black fruit, casis, vanilla, and a bit of spice on the finish. Classic Rutherford dust character. Really good.
Carter - Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyards
Wonderfully made, still quite young - it was a great year and this is a very nice wine which should meet anyone's standards.
Tallulah - Cabernet Sauvignon MD1
An interesting cabernet, well made. Good fruit, blueberry, blackberry and casis.
Merry Edwards - Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Opened up nicely with about 2 hours of decanting. Nice cherry and strawberry flavors with good structure.
