Larkmead - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Still very young. Closed until day three and best on day four. This cab needs time, however if you are patient you will notice how delightful it can be. Bright ruby red with great depth and concentration. the complexities or earth, leather, mineral and caramel don't come out till much later but are worth waiting for. Enjoy!
Nice diamond mtn cab blend. Bright fruit, with earth and smoke. Soft tannic structure, very elegant in style. Not as complex as its big brother but very nice for the price
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.
