After a couple months of hiatus, the Friday City Club group was able to get back together (albeit a smaller, more spread out group) for an epic hosting by @joe leatherwood . 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds and 1 dessert wine, all served blind. Compared to the 2012 Quella it was next to, this was much darker in style. Scorched blue and black fruit, sandalwood, plums and mocha on the nose. Copious amounts of dark chocolate and fresh squeezed dark fruits on the palate wrapped in a silky and slightly dusty profile. I called this 7-10yr old Napa cab.

Ok so this is a big boy. Following the Rousseau isn’t fair, but big bright ripe raspberries blended with deep dark chocolate. Elegant and rolling tannins. This is California Cab at its best. Again - not fair to rate this after the big R

Dark ruby red. A bit closed initially but unwinds in the glass to offer cassis, black cherry, mint, violets, dusty cedar, and Christmas spice. On the palate it’s medium bodied with medium concentration of fruit, tannins of a fine, powdery texture, and good length. Sourced from an 11 acre vineyard just north of Oakville planted 100 % to Cabernet Sauvignon. 14.5% ABV. $450.

Bright blue and black fruit with hints of cinnamon. Rounder softer structure than the Pluribus with higher tones.

Deep dark colored. Thick. Abundant alcohol on the nose. Races out quickly. Plenty of dark berry fruit. Lingers nicely. Lots of oomph and a very good bottle. Not much nuance - however ample pleasant (but raw) Cabernet Sauvignon.

Probably WOTN. Spectacular wines. Growing to love all five properties and what they’re doing.
