Decanter's just released its panel tasting scores on Top California Cabernets. Three winners came from certified organic vineyards. Kudos to them! All are featured in my forthcoming app Organically Napa: The Wine Finder.
1. Rocca Family, Grigsby Vineyard, Yountville, 91 pts. ($85)
"Dense black cherry nose with a hint of iron filings and some eucalyptus. Velvety fruit yet has grip and intensity too. This is balanced, sumptuous and rich."
2. Spottswoode, St. Helena, 91 pts. ($145)
"Sweet, intense blackcurrant nose of great purity and charm. The palate has bright forest fruits and a lively minty edge, with rounded tannins. A sensuous style and a powerful finish."
3. Oakville Ranch, Napa Valley, 90 pts. ($82)
"Smoky blackcurrant nose, which is quite stylish. Glamorous, opulent, sweet fruit with supporting tannins and a pure blackcurrant finish. An elegant wine that is finely tuned with lots of charm."
