Really delicious, structured, granitic, and packed with fruit. Value play too. — 4 months ago
A few days late in posting the Wednesday Wine Committee wines. Standard format with 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.
@Delectable Wine : This is the Martin Estate Puerta Dorada Vineyard Cabernet Port. I didn’t see it in the database.
Fig, nutmeg, clove and rich mixed berry pie. Lots of similarities to port, but the finish never goes to the traditional graham cracker richness, and not as lengthy of a lingering finish. Lighter than expected, and definitely not super sweet. More similar to a heavily extracted cab with age. I guessed Napa Cab dessert wine. — a year ago
A lot of passion fruit 👍👍 — 2 years ago
Loved this! Blend of Cinsault (67%) and País (33%). Nice minerality and tannins. Hint of smoke. — 4 months ago

Good but I expected more when only 5 barrels are made for Premier Napa Valley Auction — a year ago
This wine is INSANELY underrated! So much to unpack here. A flavor bomb. — 5 months ago
A Cinsault planted in sandy, quartz soils. On the nose, cherry and earth notes plus hints of pea and a touch of sulfur. Soft in texture, it has gentle tannins with a little chalk and a rich aftertaste. A flavorful wine. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, March 2020)
