Phone: 707 252 9777

Club/Discounts: Club Members 20% Discount, tastings (upto 6) for free

Tasting Fees: Cabernet Tasting $20

Busy tasting room -service was slow. They have a regular tasting area, a reserve tasting bar and then offer private tastings in their cellar by appointment. On this occasion, all the wines were tainted by a metallic aftertaste. Must have been the glasses. Expected wines to rate better than they did - some had tasted better previously.

1999 Andrus Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($80)Rating: C-D
Mar 2nd, 2004
Nice big wine - should be better with time
2007 Fortis ($112)Rating: C-D
Jul 31st, 2011
Beats the Andrus, very robust and lots of potential. Long finish of cherry and berry fruit, good balance and silky finish. Will improve with time - best of the day.
2000 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon ($24)Rating: C
Jun 14th, 2007
      Best Value Wine - June, 2007

Incredible nose, solid C rating, very smooth wine that is drinking well. Good structure with medium long finish - a few years left for this wine.
2001 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon ($28)Rating: C
Dec 31st, 2007
Good Howell Mountain cab, you can taste the concentrated fruit and longer finish - certainly mountain fruit
2005 Andrus Reserve ($110)Rating: C
Jul 31st, 2011
Lots of fruit, big tannins - will improve with time. Tasted at winery, 5 minutes out of the bottle, would be better with a couple of hours of decanting. It's a shame there be no more of this after 2006.
1999 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon ($20)Rating: B-C
Mar 9th, 2008
Good Rutherford nose, fills the mouth and a decent volcanic dust finish.
2001 Andrus Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($95)Rating: B-C
May 7th, 2005
Best of the 4 as you would expect. Still young, but no finish
2003 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon ($60)Rating: B-C
Dec 26th, 2006
Dark fruit tones on the palate, good mouth feel and a medium finish - may need more time to improve
2005 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon ($80)Rating: B-C
Mar 21st, 2009
Dry with dark berries. Smoky with tobacco and leather tones to finish.
2007 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon ($60)Rating: B-C
Jul 31st, 2011
Good cherry nose, nice body and medium finish
2007 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon ($60)Rating: B-C
Jul 31st, 2011
Best so far, good balance and medium long finish
2000 Crimson Creek Merlot ($14)Rating: B
Aug 25th, 2005
Tasted from a local wine club, a nice merlot, nothing spectacular
2001 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon ($39)Rating: B
May 7th, 2005
Typical Rutherford aroma, but not very complex (no layers). Hot. Chemical aftertaste (all cabs had this - glass cleaner?)
2001 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon ($70)Rating: B
May 7th, 2005
Medium body. Not sure about RP93 rating. Still has metal aftertaste (glasses?)
2004 Fortis ($135)Rating: B
Mar 21st, 2009
Sweet and jammy - not what I was expecting. Easy drinker after the sweet start, but too pricey for this wine.
2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($54)Rating: B
Mar 21st, 2009
Very cherry. Tannins more balanced on the finish.
2005 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon ($75)Rating: B
Mar 21st, 2009
Acidic with fruit muted in the background. Hits the back of your mouth more than your palate
2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($43)Rating: B
Jul 31st, 2011
Good solid cab, medium finish and good cherry tones.
2007 Onyx ($48)Rating: B
Jul 31st, 2011
Malbec blend, very tight and needs more time. Nothing bad, just nothing special right now
2002 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon ($39)Rating: A-B
May 7th, 2005
"Rutherford dust" aroma. Better than 2001, but still with zinc aftertaste
