Four Scores for Cuvaison!

 

 

2006 BRANDLIN Cabernet Sauvignon  |  Mount Veeder, Napa Valley

The 2006 BRANDLIN Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder (86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot) is one of the finest wines of the vintage. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of creme de cassis, licorice, forest floor, and floral undertones. The wine possesses layers of fruit in addition to full-bodied power, and plenty of well-integrated, velvety tannin. Drink this beauty over the next 10-15 years. – Robert Parker's Wine Advocate – December 2009 –– 93 POINTS

     
 

2007 ATS Chardonnay  |  Carneros, Napa Valley

A brilliant offering, the light green/gold-colored 2007 Chardonnay ATS Selection boasts honeysuckle, orange blossom, citrus oil, and white peach aromas along with terrific acidity, medium to full body, no noticeable oak, and superb fruit as well as length. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. – Robert Parker's Wine Advocate – December 2009 –– 92 POINTS

     
 

2007 Carneros Syrah  |  Carneros, Napa Valley

A heck-of-a bargain, the outstanding 2007 Syrah offers smoky, gamy, meaty, lard, and bacon fat notes intermixed with blackberry and currant fruit aromas. This spicy, dense, richly fruity, supple Syrah is ideal for drinking over the next 3-4 years. – Robert Parker's Wine Advocate – December 2009 –– 90 POINTS

     
 

2007 S Bock Chardonnay  |  Carneros, Napa Valley

The 2007 Chardonnay S Block reveals similar citrus oil, white peach, and wet steel-like characteristics in its crisp, medium-bodied, fresh, lively personality. It should drink well for 1-2 years. – Robert Parker's Wine Advocate – December 2009 –– 89 POINTS
