2014 Cabernet | 9.4 from Smith Mountain Eagle – Wine Talk – Bob Bryden

Parmeson Wines, Sonoma County,

I recently had the pleasure of tasting wines from this relatively new winery. Quite by accident I found out that the son of one of my college fraternity brothers owns this winery; so, I ordered a Cabernet Sauvignon ($$$), a Chardonnay ($$), and a Pinot Noir ($$) to see how he was doing. The Cabernet Sauvignon was outstanding with very soft tannins, a super smooth mouthfeel, and with a slight floral note that was just perfect. I gave it a 9.4 out of 10 on my account and promptly ordered a case. A few weeks later, after tasting the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir, I did the same; so, that should tell you something. Winemaker Tom Parmeson also makes a Zinfandel ($$) from vines planted in the 1890’s (Old vine Zinfandel is highly prized) that is receiving high accolades, but I haven’t tried one of those yet.  These wines should be available locally soon, but I don’t know yet what the pricing will be. They are available online now at the winery website for shipment to Virginia, but Blue Ridge Beverage will be their distributor when their Virginia license is approved. Keep an eye out for these wines.
