Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

#Memorialday

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from a great vintage in Napa Valley.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Showing black fruits with chocolates, earth, cedar, spices, peppercorn, pencil lead, dark coffee, vanilla, licorice and light vegetables.

Dry on the palate with a long finish and fine grained tannins.

Good right out of the bottle, but really needs a few hours to open up properly and show the tannins, which we did not have this time, as it finished way too quickly.

This 8 year old is still young, and would age nicely in the next 15 years.

Showing great complexity with a smooth, soft and delicate mouthfeel. Rich yet elegant, with a spicy finish.

Grapes come from the younger vines of BOND, Harlan Estate and Promontory. 

I paired it with a nice piece of steak and baked potatoe.

94 points.

$170.

St. Eden Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009

1.5 hour decant (little fine/cloudy sediment). A thrilling inky dark ruby red color. On the nose: red cherry, eucalyptus, plum, floral, dried herbs, sandalwood. Taste: smooth, juicy medium plus body wine with dark raspberry, bitter chocolate, cinnamon, black licorice, crushed rocks, and a long pepper minerally dry finish....YUM! Power and precision...ready to go years, but drinking well now with the decant — 2 months ago

These 09’s are just starting in the last few years greatness. Auction prices are very good now. Must say way pay full price when you can get these at 1/2 price.🤷🏻‍♂️💯

@David L got a handful of these 09s and will be fun to see how they evolve over the years. Cheers! ....though paid release price (my bad), will have to look for some more at auction.

Brut Classic Cuvée Sparkling Blend

Wasn’t expecting to like English sparkling nearly as much as I’m enjoying this bottle. A truly bizarre combination of ripe fruit and racy acidity (higher than the average for champagne) that can only come from somewhere this far north > 50 degrees latitude (long growing season + long days during growing season). Lemon curd, green apple danish, even notes of pear and passion fruit. Bond may have to trade out his Bollinger for this. — 2 months ago

Love that wine. White wines and Champagne can often be rejuvenated with a decant.

I’m usually not a fan of Vecina - just too euro tasting for me. But this? I could become a fan. — 5 months ago
