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.
Tamber Bey - Cabernet Sauvignon Deux Chevaux Vineyard
Nice dark red purple cab with firm yet balanced tannins. Not overly oaky or rough, just right for the cab lover who doesn't want to spend $100 on a cab yet wants satisfaction out of enjoying one.
Marston Family - Cabernet Sauvignon
drinking well now. Significant notes of smoke and licorice. Dark cherry, well integrated tannins, smooth on the finish. Nice example of spring mountain. Not sure about $100 cab but these days that seems to be on par for an average cab in napa
Schramsberg - Brut Anderson Valley
Schramsberg does a great job with their sparkling wines. This Anderson valley sparkler is another example of what can be done. Medium toast, nice bubbles, soft apple and pear notes. This will continue getting better. Lovely.
