Clone 4 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

If you want Napa cab, I can’t imagine a better wine that fits the bill. I love Rutherford so this is perfect. Dust covered wild picked blackberries, cedar, some pine, a hint of dark chocolate on the nose. Palate is chocolate covered raspberries, more cedar, bit of green pepper, also white pepper, plums, dirt, and the tiny hint of candy orange. This opened up after an hour. Also improved tasting outside. Is this winery underrated because they make a lot of wine? Are the 500 dollar Napa bottles that much better or just status? — 2 months ago

Napa Valley Merlot 2016

Excellent structure and delicate dark fruits like plum, black cherry, and licorice. Well balanced with full body.
Try to find the 2016 vintage.

Private Reserve Georges de Latour Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Nose has ripe black cherry, menthol, few day old chocolate cake, blueberry jam and old cigar box. Initially alcohol makes itself known, but diminishing with air.

Palate has dried blackberries, dehydrated sweet cherry, over-ripe black cherry, dark chocolate covered espresso beans, faint cedar with medium tannins, long finish. A great wine but more air desired as improvements are noted.

Decanted 2H, then double-decant for service; notes at 4H open.

Second bottle of almost a case of old BV GdL from a very trusted local source, no disappointing. Many more bottles to go on this stellar vintage. 😉

A great paring to Ribeye from Allen Bros. topped with truffle butter.

Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul-de-Pinet Picpoul Blanc 2021

I’m usually not a white wine drinker, but this one is complex enough to hold my attention! Nice notes of honeysuckle without being sweet, and a bit of minerality to add a depth to the flavor profile. This will be a staple white for me for sure. — 3 months ago

Aux Guettes Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2019

9.5

Gorgeous. Amazing deep dark red cherries and such brilliant clarity. Earthy and herbal with classic SLB depth. Feels and smells more concentrated and a wine from a “great” vintage. Licorice and cherry flower abound. Palate is bright and grapey with lovely mid season cherries. Sappy and dense. But also elegant and ethereal. Young and very long. Nose has a lovely leafiness to it. So expansive. Terrific acid, freshness and concentration. Lovey delineation and a profound compact quality. Outstanding. — 3 months ago
