Some things l like - family, long weekends, friends and wine - Revana was started with H Barrett consulting - I buy her stuff - she seems to not be part of winery of late - but I have 09 and 10s that she was the winemaker consultant - now a new winemaker but still purchased 12 and 13s. I bet I got the history lesson wrong but what I was told but enough bs -decanted for 90 minutes - love the nose with cherries vanilla and other delights plus the lady of the home says right mix of pepper and sage (not sure I can go that far) - now the initial taste - dark fruits with some added black olives - really leaving great smiles here - I bet I open another since it is a holiday weekend

Smooth, no tannen, very good overall, not heavy, pairs well with fish.

Brought a Magnum for Melinda’s Birthday dinner. Marvelous, lingering red fruit tastes that are subtle but rich and full bodied. Heidi Barrett is a tremendous loss for Revana. They have noticeably declined since her departure.

Revana used to be one of my favorites. This vintage is great! Lush flavorful and just plain spectacular. Too bad they changed winemaker. Been down hill ever sense. Oh well that's why Napa Valley is such an adventure
