2012 Rancho Zabaco "Heritage Vines" Sonoma County Zinfandel
Review Date: 1-14-2014
This savory, fruity and bright Zin starts with a sumptuous nose of ripe fruit and dried flowers. On the palate it delivers delicious fruit with the typical peppery notes. The earthiness and lively acidity help to make this Zin quite balanced and it ends with a velvety richness that I don't often associate with Zin, and definitely is not typical of the varietal at this price. Pick up a few bottles soon, as I'm sure this won't stick around for long.
2010 St. Clement Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 10-7-2013
Ripe, rich and, beautiful! From the nose to the finish, this is one seductive Cabernet. There’s such a wonderful bright ripe delicious fruit that just envelops you and begs you to drink more. You’ll absolutely need two of these. The first one to enjoy now, and the second one so you’re not mad at yourself for only picking up one.
2010 St. Clement "Oroppas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Review Date: 10-4-2013
Bursting with bright red fruit and eucalyptus on the nose, this blend is sure to please the palate looking to be fully enveloped in gorgeous fruit, supple tannins, and a smooth finish. This quite simply, over-delivers! Although I have been hell-bent on drinking the 07 and 09 vintages because of their delicious fruit and roundness, I may have to start reconsidering my stand on the 2010’s!
