Finally have a bit of time to update my tasting notes from my visit to Napa the past few days. Did a bit of work for Montagu Wines, and enjoyed a ridiculous amount of wine, and good wine at that.

Russell Bevan is making wine at Brasswood, where we are for Montagu, so it was great meeting the larger than life man that he is. He was kind enough to share a glass of his Tin Box cab with us while we were all together and this wine represents him perfectly. This is a bold, in your face cab, that blows big fruit on the nose, and gripping tannins that want to beat you like a pulp, then let go just as soft as they were strong. Big boy cab, ladies and gentlemen.

Best $125.00 investment on auction I’ve made,
Straight up cab & ready to go.
Never mind the pills in the background, vitamins seriously.
One of the best Bevan’s I’ve had,

Pro nose with wildflowers all over the place. Great fruit and balance. Next to the Araujo this was like your insane nephew that will probably rule the world someday. Thanks again to @S.R.Alexander for the killer company, wine, and food!
