Wheeler Farms

Napa Valley Rosé Blend 2017

9.2

Wheeler Farms was designed and built after Bart & Daphne Araujo sold Araujo to Chateau Latour. They spared no expense building their facilities and make 11 other labels there, including TOR.

This 17 Rosé is their first vintage and is a red blend.

Soft beautiful fruits, lean, watermelon, cherries, raspberries strawberries, peach, light beautiful minerality & spring flowers and pink roses. Beautiful acidity & finish. Nicely done.

Photos of, the small bites prepared for our tasting, their awesome gardens and their reception and tasting room.

@David T Thanks for this information following my recent Araujo Eisele note. Did not realise they had sold to Ch Latour.

Lail Vineyards

Georgia Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Clean and tasty as f*%k!! I'd rate this a notch above the Rudd Mt. Veeder SB and definitely on par with the Araujo Eisele. This should evolve a bit. Still a tad wound up. — 5 years ago

Harlan Estate

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

9.0

Magnum 1999 Harlan Estate. Welcome dinner for D fam at RW. Drank this after the '96 Araujo Eisele out of magnum. Unfortunately, this bottle was not stored properly and just didn't drink great. Unanimous that Araujo hit it out of the park and that this wine was not what it should have been. It was hot, lacked dimension, and the finish was abrupt and harsh. It should have been great, as we have been enjoying other '99s at this time, but not this bottle. — 6 years ago

Tin Box Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Pro nose with wildflowers all over the place. Great fruit and balance. Next to the Araujo this was like your insane nephew that will probably rule the world someday. Thanks again to @S.R.Alexander for the killer company, wine, and food! — 5 years ago
