St Clement - Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain
Great marriage of blackberry fruit with some cassis and hint of chocolate. Tannins are soft. Not acidic with nice late palette fruit. Has life ahead of it.
End of the Vine end of the vine santa lucia highland
Excellent value with great balance and cherry fruit. Modest tannins. The 15% alcohol does not come across as "hot" and the wine quite good friendly
Turley - Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge
Fruit forward for a petite Syrah. Not particularly tannic either. Some interesting terminal spice. Great pairing with ribs
Whitehall Lane - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Drinking beautifully. Rack of lamb super pairing. Tannins now soft and integrated but fruit remains intense- black berry, cassis, coffee, chocolate. Drinking actually "quite young". Has many years left for sure!
