397 Main Street, St. Helena, CA 94574

The winery at Salvestrin is virtually someones house with a small tasting room on the top floor with a nice view across the vineyards. The tastings are appointment only, so there is an intimate feeling when you are tasting there. The wines were impressive, although we were not completely sure as it was their first appointment of the day and they had just opened the wines. Our server was also fairly new to the winery so was not able to tell us much about the history of the wines or winery, however she was willing to open one of their older vintages to get an idea of how the wines develop over time.

1999 Cabernet Sauvignon ($40)Rating: A-B

This wine has not aged well so far. Some fruit on the nose at first, but after some time in the glass, it loses all fruit and turn into a sour glass of tannins - drinking it feels like coughing up a fur ball. Perhaps a bad bottle or a bad time for the wine. Will know when we taste other bottles.
