Selvapiana - Chianti Rufina Vigneto Bucerchiale Riserva
First bottle of this opened since purchase, soft but still interesting. Dark red fruit, with herbal, tobacco and slight medicinal qualities. Medium, finely gritty tannins.
Alpha Omega - Chardonnay
Definitely some light buttery and oak qualities, rich, creamy texture. Main fruits I get are pineapple and peach.
Nickel & Nickel - Cabernet Sauvignon Copper Streak Vineyard
This is probably one of the better recent tastings of a 2007 vintage Napa wine that I have had, as I think many of them are having diminishing returns in recent years. Very intense dark cherry thick texture, hints of mocha, vanilla and tea. Nice complexity and integrated tannins. Rich, garnet color.
Far Niente - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Brambly mixture of dark berry fruit with a touch of plum, spice and cedar notes and medium tannins. No need to decant.
Revana Family - Cabernet Sauvignon (Estate)
Big Revana fan but not my favorite vintage. Bold dark berry fruit, some heat initially, lots of minerality, finish is light, more cherry, and the oak is prevalent.
