Barlow - Cabernet Sauvignon
Dark ruby/maroon. Nice fresh eucalyptus, oops! I got my nose wet. Dark berry, cassis. Very fresh berry, somewhere in between straw and black. Good crisp acid. More fresh and crisp than complex.
Grasso - Cabernet Sauvignon Olive Ridge Vineyard
Very dark maroon. Eucalyptus with cassis in the background. Very bright fresh nose. Mouth coating dryness, but good fresh fruit and acid. Dry finish.
Watkins Family - Cabernet Sauvignon Nuns Cliff Vineyard
Deep dark purple. Reserved nose, hint of camphor with dark fruit lurking in the background. Smooth, silky in the mouth. Good dark fruit, cassis and berry. Musty, dusty, earthy finish.
Galleano Winery Zinfandel - Pioneers Legendary - Old Vines
Bright rusty red. Aromatic, fresh strawberry. Very easy drinking, very strawberry.
Bright ruby red. Good earthy, stable with red berry and sweet spice. Impeccable balance. Fresh red berry, bright acid. Mellow and sublime 2 days later.
