The reserve tasting is a must! The team at Steven Kent are very knowledgeable and provides an enjoyable tasting experience. The Lineage is one of the best Cabs in Livermore.

From the outside looking in most people know Livermore Valley as Wente's wine country. Which in many ways it is.....but with that said there are no better wine makers than Steven & Craig here at the SKW. Specializing on what Livermore grows best, Bordeaux varietals primarily from his Gheilmetti Vineyards. Steve has been able to cultivate the best representations of what this region can do.

Thank you for a lovely experience and for an opportunity to taste such fine wine; we’ll be back, for sure!

Amazing experience. The wines are outstanding quality, and the knowledge and style of the staff made the tasting a special experience. One key aspect to this wine adventure is they pour all 4 of the tastings in different glasses to ensure you can compare and contrast all of them at the same time. I love that!

I think we would enjoyed the wines more if the tables had chairs. Also our wine pourer had a snobby attitude, didn't tal;k much in a conversation. the number one snobby thing was the curtain where after pouring the guests tastes they all go behind the curtain and probably talk about all of us out there drinking. Maybe instead of walking away to the curtain room, stay and converse.

Lineage Flight on 10/23/16 3:00 PM

Steven Mirassou is the finest winemaker in the Livermore Valley and one of the finest winemakers in California (which means in the world as well :-). Lineage is his masterpiece, able to successfully compete with Insignia, Opus One, Martha's Vineyard Cab, and other top-of-the-line wines. Geoff and Cindy were excellent hosts, and were very sharing of their knowledge of the wines. Must visit!

Lineage Flight on 10/16/16 3:00 PM

This was in the Reserve Room (reservations definitely required) for Lineage. Lineage is Steven Mirassou's flagship and competes with Insignia, Opus One, etc. A classic Bordeaux blend, it is the best wine in the Livermore Valley, which is increasingly able to compete with Napa. The 2011, 12 and 13 vintages were sampled. The 2011 is opening up, but the 2013 will be the star. I bought a case.
