@davratoro and company Lab Rat the Zin and Barb, and pull from the library as well always high quality and this offering is no different!
@ScottHarveyWine takes a break from vacation with a Note from the Vintner on the AbV Wines above 14% can be out of range by 1% legally. I think the real alcohols are closer to 14.6 to 15.6%. The labels came before the final blend.

Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Mixed Reds
6 bottles for $99.99 $16.67/bottle + $1.33/bottle shipping
Case of 12 for $179.99 $15/bottle + $1/bottle shipping
So they’re all labeled at 14.9%. what’s the real alcohol on these?
@klezman A bit of inflation?
Jana and I are in Porto Rico for a little post harvest R&R. So I’m not in front of my wine production records. That being said, with wines above 14% I can be out of range by 1% legally. A wine labeled 14.9 can be between 14.1 to 15.8%. In these vintages I let the alcohol ferment out a little higher than I normally do and am doing now. So I think the real alcohols are closer to 14.6 to 15.6%. We develop and send our labels out for federal approval before the final blends are made. That is why I used 14.9% on all of them because I knew it would fall in that range.
@ScottHarveyWine Thanks makes sense. Thanks Scott! Enjoy your (well deserved) vacation!

Hey Twin Cities Casemates! Anyone interested in a split?
Please tell me this can ship to Alabama. Can Scott give me the hookup?
@jlim13 Jana says she will take care of getting it to you.
Woot! Thank you!
I like this winemaker and I remember my wine.woots with it (I recall that was Zin and Barbera). Too bad my state is not on the list (CT).
@diman Ct is a real difficult state. The legislature must not think their constituents should have access to well made wines from other states. Give the winery a call and we will figure out a way to get it to you.
How much more are you saving by buying a full case?

Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Mixed Reds - $20 = 10.0%
That 93 points on the zin from Wine Enthusiast…
This fresh-smelling, full-bodied and flavor-packed wine wraps bold, jammy blackberry and raspberry notes in moderate tannins with a snap of acidity for balance. This will pair nicely with the richest roasts, braises or slow barbecue. JG 3/1/22
and let us not forget Wilfred Wong at wine.com on the zin as well…
90 Points. COMMENTARY: The 2019 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Zinfandel is bright and attractive with excellent lasting power. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits candied berries aromas and flavors. Try it with a well-seasoned roast leg of lamb. (Tasted: September 25, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
fwiw (and not much…happy Saturday)
2020 Barbera 2019 Zinfandel
Hello Casemateys!! I get to share this rattage with you all. On Friday evening, I received the mail and found a surprise. 11/11, I got 1 and 1! Two bottles of Scott Harvey wines, a 2020 Barbera and a 2019 Zinfandel, Amador County mountain selection. They went straight into the fridge for cooling prior to initial tasting.
On to the wine reviews.
Both bottles were received in the evening and I cooled down the bottles for about 30 minutes in the fridge. I decanted a small amount of both wines for tasting for 4 people and tasted right away, cooling the rest a bit more.
Initial impressions: medium body, cherry on the nose, heavy legs. Palate was very tight, alcohol, tannin, and red cherries. Wine was begging for air and felt a bit warm so we decided to cool to 60F. After decanting for 30 minutes and chilling it to 60F: Alcohol had dissipated. Red cherries, cassis, green pepper, figs and spice at the finish. Much better than at pop and pour! This wine requires decanting and proper temperature. Medium bodied, this wine has high acidity and will benefit from cellaring, felt a little green. The 2017 Barbera from SH was fabulous in 2020 and I’ve been saving a bottle for drinking between now and the up coming months.
Initial impressions: medium bodied Zin, enjoyable on pop and pour. Black cherries and hint of smoke on the nose. Balanced structure, on palate black cherries, hint of leather and cloves, with a long finish. After decanting for 30 mins and 60F: Very elegant Zin offering, different from a typical California jam bomb, with fruit, earthiness, complexity, and a hint of jam at the finish. The tasting committee (wife, mom, brother, and myself) liked the Zin over the Barbera, but enjoyed both after the Barbera opened up after decanting.
Dinner was Filet with Demi Glace, corn and bacon risotto. Both wines did ok with the food, but the Zin paired perfectly and made the meal much more enjoyable. The Barbera in our opinion would pair with hearty dishes such as pasta dishes, pork belly, or ribeye. This wine with some fat to cut through would have been better…
Scott Harvey Wines are always high quality and this offering is no different!
Thank you Alice and WCC/Casemates for the opportunity!!
@davratoro Great rattage, thank you! Big fan of these wines and Scott, I’m in total agreement with your conclusions. The red label Barbera with a year or two on it or a decant is my favorite of Scott’s Mountain Selection offerings.
@davratoro @wnance That Barbera is truly the best! In for a case! Cheers!
If I get 6 or 12 will depends on the Syrah. Any hope for a rat on that?
SH wines are normally autobuys for me. Storage is starting to run primo though.
No room but still need! Lol…It will be drank! Big fan of all of Scott & Jana’s wines. I am a club member and this is a great price for nice wines.
Visited both tasting rooms for my 50th bday vacation from FL in Feb and whole staff are wonderful:) They even checked in on Florida members after hurricane Ian by email…so thoughtful.
Thank you for the offering & all the participation on here.
Really not sure what I’ll do with the case when it gets here, but it will be worth finding a spot
So wonderful to be back on. I sure have been enjoying many of the casemates offerings I purchased recently. Jana and I have been flying for the last day and now are in Porto Rico for a little post harvest R&R. I brought six bottles of wine with us of which a Casemates Gruet Brut is among them.
@ScottHarveyWine enjoy the holiday!
You know we all appreciate your hard work and it’s without question you deserve some quality R&R. I hope the two of you have an amazing time in PR!
@kawichris650 Been wonderful so far. Buying a Fedora and off to the rain forest for today. Great lunch yesterday trying the local cuisine. Impressed with the great Spanish wine selections on the wine list.
@kawichris650 Never did make it to buy the Fedora but spent all day on the mountain in the rain forest. Should of guessed, lots of slippery mud. Jana and I both went down and came back bringing a part of the rain forest soil with us. Good thing the time share Hyatt has a washer dryer. Enjoying a bottle of the Jana Riesling with some Plantain chips while catching up with you all.
Now we know what two of the bottles you took with you…
@ScottHarveyWine Enjoy your vacay! You deserve it! Don’t break anything. Also, on a wish note…would love to see a Jana wine offering
gah no NJ…why whhhyyyyy did we move here from NYC last year
@Montepulciano why would anyone move to NJ from anywhere?
@Montepulciano @winecaseaholic We have our reasons. You’re a true ambassador from wherever it is that you call home.
@hscottk @winecaseaholic Ha i think winecaseaholic was just making a joke, and to be fair, NJ does have a stereotype…
…and maybe it’s better we don’t advertise how beautiful and awesome it actually is! Keeps the crowds smaller!!
Montclair NJ really is amazing
POPSOCKETS! SPA KITS! POLLY POCKETS! AWESOME!
Room on the rack is tight…but would love to try a bottle of each if anyone in Columbus has interest in splitting a half (or letting me buy a quarter of their case).
Don’t need more - It is Scott Harvey - picked up 6.
Auto-buy. Always room on the racks in the basement for a case of SH.
@applepi did you still want to split? I have picked up a similar mix on WW and here before from @ScottHarveyWine and not been disappointed, good mix for an introduction if a new name for your collection.
@bunnymasseuse yes I’d love to split.
Nebraska wants to partake
@LincolnMics Hey @ScottHarveyWine can you all help this lovely casemater-er with a creative hookup on your juice?
@LincolnMics Call Jana at 415 264-5641. She can make it happen.
@dmers bye bye, until the next SH offer!
@dmers should I admit I remember watching that episode when it first aired?
Nightmare at 20,000 Feet
Yup, excellent episode.
