2010 Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Review: 2010 Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder, California   I’m not really sure how brave that mountain is but I do know Mt. Veeder produces some mighty fine fruit. Wow! The Mt.

2008 Elyse Morisoli Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Review: Elyse Morisoli Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley   I always get excited when we get samples from Elyse.
