SFO part 5: Napa Valley

Day 3 in San Francisco. We were choosing whether to go down to the Silicon Valley or Napa Valley, and since it was a Saturday (which means Apple and Google won’t be open), I chose Napa Valley. 692 more words


Three Steves Red Port, NV

Very noticeable anise flavors in a very hot port. Caramel and barrel flavors, and what I wrote in my notes as ‘smooth harshness’. I’ll bet that makes more sense after a few glass of this 20% alcohol port. Link to winemaker. Effective 7/10.


Three Steves Cabernet Pfeffer, 2012

Strong pepper taste, oddly a ‘squash flavor’, overall tart with some barrel tastes, cranberry tart and baked goods, but well balanced for all the outlier tastes. Link to winemaker. Effective 7/10.


Three Steves Dry Creek Zinfandel, 2012

Characteristic pepper, salt and mineral, black fruit, anise flavors. Great tastes but resulting wine is a bit dry and harsh. Link to winemaker. Effective 6/10.


Three Steves Chardonnay, 2012

Very strong, scotch taste profiles, butterscotch, butter, and hot. But no trace of sour, and very dense for a chardonnay. Link to winemaker. Effective 7/10.
