About Our Ratings

Goldschmidt Vineyard 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Yoeman Vyd., Alexander Valley
This extremely rare and exciting Cabernet is produced by the man who headed up wine making at Simi vineyards for more than a decade. Nick Goldschmidt produced millions of cases of fine wine at Simi, Clos du Bois, Buena Vista, William Hill, Atlas Peak and many more renowned California wineries. Goldschmidt Vineyards is all his own. This is where he creates extraordinary small lot wines from the vineyards and terroir that he knows so well. The Yoeman vineyard where the 100% Cabernet grapes for this wine are sourced is situated on a terraced knoll, just east of the town of Geyserville and is comprised primarily of a gravelly loam soil. The slope direction provides excellent exposure of the grape clusters and allows for long “hang time.” This provides perfectly formed bunches of grapes that possess optimal ripeness and fully developed varietal character. The unique combination of exposure, soil conditions, drainage, and mature vines produces wines of rich, concentrated flavors that showcase the true character of the region, the vineyard, and the varietal. The grapes are fermented slowly over four weeks and the wine is aged in French Taransaud oak barrels for 26 months. Botlled unfined and unfiltered. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 93 points saying "A rich, decadent and generous wine, 100% varietal, this is both floral and fruity, bright in cherry and raspberry alongside herbal cedar and vanilla. A medium weight surrounds softly integrated tannins, leading the way to an explosive, juicy finish. This is a classic example of the appellation’s prowess in approachable power."

Goldschmidt - Alexander Valley
The wine was good but not very bold.
Probably needs to sit down for a few years
