If heaven exists, I sure hope there will be wine there.

Jesus, this wine was stunning. An incredible mix of spice and fruit notes on the nose with an equally compelling and titillating palate. Decanted for 45 minutes, and enjoyed for two hours after. An incredibly well-balanced showing from a lovely vintage. This is most definitely peaking now, but could be enjoyed for another decade. One of the most expressive and beautiful California Cabernets I've ever had. — 9 months ago
What a big, hefty rye. At 120 proof it packs a punch, but the texture is smooth for something that hot. Vanilla, butterscotch, and cigar are all folded together on the palate with a classic rye nutty-grain finish. Beautiful--and I'm not usually a fan of straight ryes! — a year ago
Mark my words, this will be the next cult wine from Napa. A Philipe Melka production, it is absolutely stunning--and a second label, no less! Dark cocoa and black cherry notes, with BEAUTIFUL acidity and balance. Tannins are so fine, and as such it is drinking beautifully now. Get your paws on Brand ASAP--it has "ten year waiting list" written all over it. — a year ago
