Harvest production at Hirsch and Cobb Wineries

Black currant, tart plum, tobacco, green pepper, paraffin. Good, not great this year. Needs a lot of air.

The blend of grape varieties sorts out this way: 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Petit Verdot, 22% Tannat, 9% Syrah, 7% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petite Sirah. Bonny Doon wines always carry a note of sophisticated savoriness, unlike any Brand X you may care to compare. This blend adds a violet sense to the nose, possibly as a result of the healthy drop of Petit Verdot. Blackberry and leather aromas also decorate the scene. On the palate, it shows a Pinotesque restraint and even a little tartness reminiscent of Pinot Noir. Savory cuts a wide swath through the abundant dark fruit, with black olives, dried tomatoes and smoked meat making appearances. The finish is rather long and the savory stuff stays longest.

Great body, full of dark fruits and just enough tannic nature.

Raspberry, cherry, cranberry, blackberry, loamy earth, currant and hints of vanilla. Good structure and soft tannins.

As the name implies, this is a proper Claret, with a full body and the requisite mocha cherry flavors.

Mmmkay, Wine Enthusiast's tasting note on this wine includes black gravel. I gotta say I didn't get that but there's sweet red plums and dark berries. It's got that old school feel that makes me think this is what a claret of old tastes like. This is fun!

Surprisingly not a fruit bomb. A little pedestrian but not bad at all for a pizza. More green pepper noted than expected. 36 cab sauv / 22 petit Verdot / 22 tannat / 9 syrah / 7 merlot / 3 cab franc / 1 petit syrah Lol
