1983 Kenwood "Artist Series" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "(Cellar Selection)" (11/1986) K&L Notes: The 9th release of Kenwood Vineyards’ Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon features Marcus Uzilevsky's piece "Music." A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this wine was aged for 15 months in oak. The minemaking notes indicate that "the finished wine exhibits a rich nose and flavor that are a direct result of the three varieties used in the blend. Both Merlot and Cabernet Franc add a softness to the wine and an added degree of complexity to its flavors."

1984 B.R. Cohn "Olive Hill" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "To date this is my favorite wine produced by B.R. Cohn. The 1984 exhibits a deep, thick, red color with amber at the edge. The nose opens to reveal sweet, jammy, red and black fruits intertwined with scents of herbs and toast. Expansive, chewy, and fat, with an attractive fleshiness, this full-bodied Cabernet is drinking well yet promises to last for another decade. It is an impressive, authoritatively-flavored, well-balanced wine. (RP)" (8/1994) Wine Spectator: "Very concentrated and youthful, with ripe blackberry and cherry flavors backed by full tannins and firm acidity ...Read More »

Of the 1986 Laurel Glen Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "In the second series of 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon tastings, I knew some mystery wines had been inserted. When I tasted this wine, I thought it was the 1982 Leoville Las Cases. Laurel Glen's 1986 Cabernet exhibits a youthful, dense, deep ruby/purple color with virtually no signs of age.

1986 B.R. Cohn "Olive Hill" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Spectator: "This has reached a fine drinking plateau, as the tannins have softened and the sweet plum and black cherry flavors have a nice black olive and herb accent. You'll still encounter firm tannins, but there's lots of richness and flavor, too." (12/1996)

It possesses a bold, aromatic profile of cassis, herbs, sweet oak, licorice and minerals, full body, excellent density, beautiful balance and purity, and a long, moderately tannic finish.

Initially, the wine appears closed and backward, but wonderfully endowed and rich. I left the wine decanted overnight, and the next day it revealed an extraordinary fragrance of Asian spices, new wood, smoke, and black fruits. It opened considerably, offering magnificently rich, black-cherry and blackcurrant fruit, full body, and significant tannin.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec." (3/1998) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I reported last year, Beringer's new proprietary red wine, Alluvium, appears to be an excellent product. Made from 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, production averages about 10,000-14,000 cases per year. The 1994 Alluvium is a textbook proprietary wine.

1994 Chalk Hill "Estate" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is an intriguing Rhone-like Cabernet Sauvignon with a Provencal nose of olives, iodine, black cherries, tobacco, and weedy cassis. Medium to full-bodied and lush, with plenty of spice, this is an exotic, delicious wine (although not exactly what I think of as North Coast Cabernet) that should drink well for 12-15 years. (RP)" (12/1997) Wine Spectator: "Dense and a touch leathery, with herb, currant, plum and berry notes, finishing with dry, tealike tannins. Best to cellar into 2001 in hopes it softens."

Still youthful, but muscular and impressively-endowed, this full-bodied Cabernet requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for two decades or more." (1/2000)

Here’s a wine coming up on 20 years of age in another 18 months, and it is still remarkably young and vigorous. Dense purple, with beautifully sweet crème de cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with incense, graphite, and a touch of oak, this was a great year for North Coast varietals, and this wine is lavishly rich, with a multi-dimensional texture and a super-intense, full-bodied finish – ju ...Read More »

1999 Jordan Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Spectator: "An herbal style, with ripe, smooth currant, herb, green olive and sage notes. Finishes with complexity and a firm backbone of tannins. Needs time. (JL)" (11/2003) K&L Notes: A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot, Jordan felt the Merlot in 1999 was extraordinary. With such a high percentage of Merlot one would think the wine would be soft and open. In fact the 1999 is firmer and shows more structure than in years past. This is typical of the vintage. I think the key to Jordan's success in 1999 was the Merlot. It adds that extra dimension of fruit and fleshi... Read More »

Has a smaller tannic structure than the young 2001, but with less texture and mid-palate ripeness this shows some dryness on the back." (6/2004)

It possesses full body, wonderful ripeness and purity, a layered mouthfeel, and a velvety texture. Moreover, it is fairly priced."

2004 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend

The wine exhibits notes of forest floor intermixed with chocolate, blueberry, blackberry, espresso, and spice. It is strikingly more tannic, and closed compared to the 2005, which is almost the reverse of the vintage character. There were only 2,000 cases produced of the 2004, which needs 2-3 years of bottle age and should drink well for 15+ years.
