Favia

La Magdalena Napa Valley Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

A wine I really enjoy. ‘17 not the best example. Feels like it needs some more bottle time. But still drinking very well. Great bouquet. Nice dark fruit. — 9 days ago

Stony Hill

SHV Napa Valley Chardonnay

This is a note for Stony Hill Chardonnay, Spring Mountain District, vintage 2019. The last vintage without malo. Yellow apple, creamy yogurt, smoke and vanilla pods. Slightly brioche. Med-/med acidity. Creamy texture and mouthfeel. Aged 80 years' old foudres. The new winemaker started experimenting with malo, we'll see how it will turn out. We had a long walk around the vineyards looking at all the Chardonnay vines up on the hill together with the Malbec vines up there. Closer to the estate level are singled staked Riesling vines due to vine age - these are the oldest Riesling vines in the valley. Cab Franc are planted in the center area and at the front are some Gamay. Mostly on VSP some on Lyre because of western exposure. Cab Sauv were first planted in 2005. 2010 was the first Cab vintage. They had let quite a large area fallow for ~15 years, and just recently started some new plantings. Exciting stuff. — 6 days ago

McKahn Family Cellars

Saint Helena Syrah 2019

Once again McKahn Family Cellars has produced a fantastic wine. Bouquet delivers a rich field of blooming lavendar. On first sip, the palate is overwhelmed with boysenberry, blackberry, and dark currant. Then comes a crunchy oaky pecan sensation. There’s black pepper and cigar box. Maybe a little vanilla extract in the background. The finish grips your tongue and gives it a little squeeze, reminiscent of fresh pine. It is very very dry and leaves me thirsting for more!!!!!! please visit McKahn Family Cellars and order this amazing wine you will not be disappointed!!!!!!!!!! — 14 days ago

After lots of oohs and ahhhs for the 2016 Brinkman a couple nights ago we pulled this. Still great, but the Brinkman was next level. — 12 days ago

Sinegal Estate

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Tight at first sip. Enjoyable on its own. Andrew says overall framework is typical napa cab-intense-but once it breathes a little it’s not too much of a pinch in the face. Celebrating my last day at TPN! — 2 days ago
