Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Magnum. 1.5hr+ decant. Dark purple color. Still young. Blue and black fruit dominate. Hints of spice, earth, and oak throughout. Medium plus depth. Just my style for a Napa Cab! — 5 days ago

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2016

Too young I know but was hoping with a 5h+ decant this would still deliver. It did, though I’m not sure it showed as distinctively as I was hoping. On cork pop a medicinal note that blew off. Lots of dark red fruit and purple flowers. Tannins are there but alongside a ribeye weren’t overbearing. Quite nice but was hoping for something more. — 8 days ago

Le Chevalier de Sterimberg Blanc Hermitage Marsanne Roussanne 2018

A full body, heavy blanc Hermitage, 66% Marsanne and 34% Roussanne. Yellow hay color, brilliant. Noticed nose of pear, strudel apple, even guave.
Thick palate, meaty in structure (for wine), very balanced. Missing the final kick of the minerality. Great experience.

Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016

Gold color with subtle cloudiness. White Burgundy nose - butter, camomile, oak, and a touch of minerality. Similar on the palate with above average depth and thickness. Just my style. A little more reserved and less refined than previous bottles. — a month ago
