Tamber Bey - Cabernet Three Steeds
From the 2011 Vintage, fresh, approachable, and full of ripe fruit. Medium weight red ruby with blueberry, cedar, and vanilla notes mixed in. Great weekday wine that is not too presumptuous yet pleasing on the palate.
Ruffino - Modus
Not sure how WS rated this wine with 96 points. It is no doubt a good wine but it does not merit a score that high. It is a very good super Tuscan with opaque dark fruit, good balance, and mild tannin. The blend is noticeable but not seamlessly integrated. Lacking complexity and more just big fruit. Good wine overall
Domaine Chandon - Etoile Rose
ok but not on my list of favorite Roses. Light strawberry, watery, and fizzy.
Silver Oak - Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
Silver Oak, what can you say. Consistent, bright red, American oak, dark cherry, some vanilla, and smooth as can be
Pride Mountain - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa/Sonoma
excellent cab from pride. Nice mineral, cedar, and dark fruit notes. Full bodied and smooth. leaves you wanting more.
