Modern style but showing very well. Dusty red earth tones.

An absolutely stunning lunch from @joe leatherwood today. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind. In. The. Zone. The first of five mind blowing reds. This, to me, epitomizes first growth version of Bordeaux. In fact, I called this Napa royalty style first growth style. It is dusty and just starting to channel some herbal and leather notes, but the density and purity/softness of the fruit (still quite dark, hint of red fruit), scream older Napa Cab. Added notes of fig, leafy tobacco, and truffled dark cocoa. Wonderful!

(93-95 pts for me at this point). I’m not usually a fan of this vintage but this is one of the successes.

From magnum. Deep reddish tawny color. Almost opaque. Nice seductive nose. Notes of blackberries, cedar box, warm blueberries, a little currant and some tobacco leaf. Really nicely balanced with tannins fully resolved and integrated. In a great place and don’t think it will get much better from here, but clearly built to last.

Awesome 97 Insignia. The wine of the night and there were plenty others. Sharing this with all on our Monday night dinner group. I would say 100 points because it was. Guys like Rob Parker recently upgraded this to a 100pts. Big rich full and elegant stand out on this 20 yr old wine. Thanks David for giving me this Awesome Beauty. CB

Wow this is fantastic. Napa Red the way it ought to be -- lots of fruit, nicely framed by oak, amazingly complex and yet great balance. Just a gorgeous drink and in its prime window I think. Second bottle of this in past year and both incredible...

Notes of leather, sage and tobacco on the nose. Nice texture with fully integrated tannins. Still has lots of fruit. Plenty of runway, but best consumed now.
