Zaca Mesa - Syrah Estate
We really enjoyed this wine. Great QPR. Only decanted for 20 minutes and it was ready. Had the wine with greek salad and BBQ pork sausages...and grilled asparagus. Yummy!
Hewitt - Cabernet Sauvignon
Very active nose of Dark berries. Opened for 30 minutes, but the tannins were still strong. Wait for another year. Lovely taste of classic Napa Cab. Enjoyed with brisket.
Robert Mondavi - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Perfumed nose. Ready to drink and enjoy. Lovely Napa Cab. Enjoyed with filet mignon. Great Price to quality ratio. Glad I have a few left in the cellar.
Honig - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Very little or no nose. Opened and decanted it for 1.5 hours, still quite tannic. Disappointed with the wine, considering I paid over $40 for it. Lack the special "Napa Cab " taste.
Jean de Gue
Decanted the wine for 1.5 hours. Floral nose with some red fruit. The wine was medium body with very rounded tannins. I guess because of the merlot majority. Went excellent with the blue cheese and French bread. We both enjoyed it. Shows that right bank 2005 Bordeaux wines are now ready to enjoy.
