Harlan Estate

Napa Valley Proprietary Red Blend 1994

Tasted blind. Dark, dark black scarlet color. Opaque times 2. Notes of black cherry, licorice, herbs and violets. Some menthol too. Big and strong in the mouth. Monolithic and still a bit harsh despite being open all day. Not as big a fan of this as others, at least at this point in its evolution. — 16 days ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (88%) with small amounts of Merlot, Petite Verdot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Dark ruby color with purple highlights. Aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and pleasant oak. Bold dark fruits fill the pallet along with hints of coffee and a touch of minerality on the long and luxurious finish. Fresh acidity and lush tannins. Approachable now, but will continue to further develop with additional bottle age. Quite good. — 2 days ago

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

1 hour decant(decent chunky/cloudy sediment). A monumental dark purplish garnet color. On the nose: addictive aromas of an old bottle of maraschino cherries, funky forest floor, vanilla chocolate, gravel. Taste: smooth, creamy, bright wine with dark plum/cherry, tobacco, spice, cocoa, earthy, and a medium plus dry finish with some still there kicken tannins after 15 years. Drinks well with the decant, but would like to try again in 3 years. YUM! Really enjoyed it. — 23 days ago

Dominus Estate

Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1990

Not what I was hoping for,
Gave it some air but not too much so that we didn’t lose the sweet spot. Didn’t touch the Shafer until this was finished. Just a typical older Bordeaux blend from Napa but very ordinary considering the price point. Secondary market purchase so who knows prior storage.

Bummer. Picked up some 1991, 2006 and 2019 Dominus recently. As always, cautiously optimistic.

I still have 6 bottles of 18, still not fit for drinking. I figured out of most of Napa that Heitz, Dominus & BV GLT would be the ones to go with in 1990 vintage.
I’m 1 for 2 so far
BV later today or tomorrow

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Friday wine. This was a easy choice for National Women’s History month. An iconic winemaker. A true trailblazer. Exceptional wines. An endless amount of superlatives that can go with Cathy Corison. Her wines are described as having both elegance and power.

2013 Corison Cabernet was perfection in my glass last night. Winemaker notes describe the wine as having aromas and flavors tend toward the dark end of the Cabernet fruit spectrum with blueberries, black cherries, blackberries and dark plums all singing in close harmony. Complexing notes include tobacco, baking spices, chocolate, and savory herbs including sage, thyme and basil. Floral notes of violets and rose petals play with a notable stony minerality in the aromas and long finish. 13.5%ABV. I described this wine as being both elegant and stunning.

Grateful for the women who busted through those glass ceilings. Grateful for the trailblazers.
