With Goat Cheese

Alexander Valley Vineyards

Reserve Alexander School Single Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Pretty color of deep ruby with a short reddish rim.

Earthy nose with black currants, black plums, black cherries, bell pepper, tobacco leaf, oak, light vanilla, pencil lead, black pepper, chocolates, green vegetables, dirt and herbs.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, spices, licorice, light vanilla, tobacco leaf, peppercorn, coffee, earth and cola.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley in California. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel. Tasty, rich and opulent.

This Single Vineyard is still very young and needs another five years in the bottle to mature. Will age nicely in the next 10 years.

Much more earthy and complex on the nose than on the palate, at this point. Although earthy, it is showing a lot of fruits. Very true to the terroir.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime.

Good by itself and better with food.
A great wine to pair with BBQ meats.

I paired it with meats and cheeses, and paired very nicely with the goat cheese.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged for 28 months in French Oak barrels (100% New). Limited production.

14.4% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Les Vieux Clos Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

Chenin Blanc in this style is always so pleasurable because of combining freshness from the vibrant acidity and mineralogy with the depth of its richness. After an hour, the intense goat cheese funk (rind) blew off and I was left with caramelized apples, honey-dipped almonds, fresh thyme, and a bit of salinity. — 18 days ago

Light golden in color with a yellow tint.

On the nose, ripen yellow apples, pears, light citrus, vanilla, light oak and spices.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with red and green apples, citrus, spices, vanilla, oak, earth and herbs.

This is a very tasty White Rhone blend from Mendocino County. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Crisp and elegant.

A good quality wine that I would love to try in 3 years.

Nicely balanced and good as a sipping wine. This Single Vineyard is very interesting and well-made.

Feels like a mix of White wine from the Rhone Valley with a new world twist.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Paired very nicely with goat cheese and the prosciutto.

A blend of 54% Marsanne, 22% Roussanne, 12% Viognier and 12% Picpoul Blanc.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

Revana Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir 2018

This young Pinot Noir from Oregon is starting to drink nicely now. Showing mild complexity and a soft mouth feel.

Good right out of the bottle and gets earthier as it opens up. Good by itself and better with food.

This Single Vineyard is still young, and would age nicely in the next 7 years. Would be nice to revisit it in 2 to 5 years. Showing great potential.

I paired it with Italian Prosciutto and goat cheese.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
