Ellen Lane Estate Chardonnay 2015

Lovely dark gold color. Needed about 20 minutes to open up. Would have benefited from a decant. Super rich, deep Chard. Really good and a lot of life left! — 4 days ago

State Lane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Nice nose of cedar, licorice, cola, Indian spices, chocolates and tobacco.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, spices, light vanilla, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso, eucalyptus, light vegetables and herbs.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 4 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Yountville is already delicious. Fruit forward and elegant. Soft and smooth.

Showing nice complexity. Still young but already enjoyable even by itself.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour in the decanter. A good quality wine.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years. This Single Vineyard has good potential to become a 94 +point wine.

A good sipping wine that will pair nicely with a big piece of steak.

A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. Aged for 19 months in (55% new) French Oak barrels. Only 7,200 bottles made.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Morrison Lane Syrah 2013

Ten years on and this is magical with an hour in the decanter. Extremely aromatic with macerated wild raspberries and eucalyptus. Just a touch of garnet in the glass, the flavors are fresh and savory. Wild berry, faint olive tapenade, and spice. Great balance, if not a bit hot at 14.5%.

Blind tasters were in the Rhone but new world characteristics make themselves known with more time in the glass. This is delicious. Drink or hold.

I decant my whites as well to let them open up & warm up. Both enhance the flavors.
