2019 DAOU Pessimist | JD 92
"A blend of 74% Petite Sirah, 13% Syrah, and 13% Zinfandel, brought up in 60% new French oak, the 2019 The Pessimist gives up loads of sweet blueberries and barbecue notes as well as more violets, spice, vanilla, and candied flower nuances with time in the glass. Beautifully textured and full-bodied, it has a rounded, opulent texture and a great finish. It's a sexy fruit bomb to enjoy over the coming 3-5 years."
2019 Rombauer Cabernet Sauvignon | Vivino 4.3
"The color is intense and beautiful, almost black with purple, reddish hues. Aromas of black cherry, cassis, piecrust, spice, and mint mingle and leap from the glass. The palate is full and concentrated with similar aromas but also featuring black currant and sweet red cherry with the mild presence of oak, seamlessly integrated. Signature finely structured tannins and balanced acidity give way to a long finish which continues to build after that last sip."
2017 Antinori Tignanello | WE 97
"Aromas of cassis, menthol, blue flower and pipe tobacco shape the nose on this gorgeous red. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the delicious, elegantly structured palate delivers dried black cherry, ripe blackberry, licorice and vanilla framed in taut, fine-grained tannins."
2017 Cimarossa Di Rive Cabernet Sauvignon | Vivino 4.4
"The dark garnet color is an indication of the concentration to follow. The aroma and bouquet exhibit seasoned French oak that compliments the abundance of ripe blueberry and plum jam aromas. Initially the palate shows soft vanilla, hints of cedar-spice, then the fruit aromas emerge with ripe, soft blackberry and black raspberry. Nuances of dry woody herbs keep the wine interesting and evolving in the mouth as the wine unfolds in your glass."
2016 Robert Foley Charbono Napa Valley | Vivino 4.1
"The 2016 Charbono offers ripe, red berry candy, and grape jelly aromas with just a touch of lavender floral character. Very lively acidity and medium body address the palate with very fine gentle tannin. Beautifully balanced. This is a very versatile food wine."
2020 Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon | Vivino 4.1
"Deep ruby in color, Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon expresses aromas of fresh black currants and cherries accompanied by subtle smoky notes and dried spices. On the palate, this lavish powerful wine is layered with juicy blackberry, ripe cherry, vanilla bean, and brown butter. It's full-bodied and rich, balanced by a touch of bright acidity and firm polished tannins."
2018 JLohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon | WE 93
"This widely available bottling remains a very wise choice for the price point. Dark in the glass, it begins with cassis, pie crust and baking spice on the nose, yet there’s a savory black-olive touch as well. Firm yet polished tannins carry dark fruit, cocoa and light licorice through the dense palate."
