A classic Napa Cabernet that show true varietal character with low alcohol and not a lot of new oak.

Total throwback to old Napa. All tannin and acid, dust and fruit. The beginning of a legendary wine.

Classic Napa Valley with low alcohol and balanced flavors of earth and fruit; delicious and easy to drink.

Cousin/basically brother in town, always whip stuff out to entertain us. Anyways this is wildly rich with a purple cassis and dark chocolate tone. It surrounds the nose with dark cherries. As it opens you get like a pile of mashed blueberries/huckleberries going on. There's a 6 foot wall of tannins your palate has to jump through every sip but its deliciously coated with green chiles and the menthols we smoked. DONT WANT TO RAMBLE, but the depth of lush earth if that is a thing is key here. Think stewed plums, melted dark chocolate, a Cuban cigar level chewing tobacco. It's rich powerful and elegant. This review is over an hour and I just keep writing.. so maybe let it wait an hour then drink?

Bright, acidic, lively. I know very little about wine, but think age would round this out nicely. #earthquakewine

Cabin Fever Crusher #2. Thanks to Hurricane Harvey keeping me home-bound for days, I have plenty of time on my hands to contemplate just the right wines to take off the rack each night. This pick is helping the cabin fever go away.

Off the beaten path from the typical Napa cab. Big on complexity with wildflowers, cassis, blueberries, blackberries, molasses, smoke, milk chocolate, and leather. Big on restraint too- light and elegant palate. Awesome stuff. Great with mountains of Greek food. 12.5%.

Sensibility of a young Bordeaux, smoke and mineral, tobacco. After an hour in the decanter showed seamless purity, Rutherford dust and loamy earth. Will reward cellaring handsomely. Outstanding, especially for the $$. Thanks @Steve Matthiasson!
