Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The one that started it all; I feel this wine is so underrated and sometimes even gets a bad rap due the commercial direction the brand has taken. All that aside, I truly believe the wine is worth every cent. The color is a nice deep ruby. The nose has deep bright cherry notes. The pallet is complex with tobacco, plum, leather and earth; a round mouthfeel and a proper finish. The winery may have taken a commercial direction but the vines remain the same and one can taste the Napa soul on every sip. — 10 days ago

I get it. Traditional, but deep, compact fruit like you’re walking in a forest of raspberries that restores your soul and replenishes your heart. — 13 days ago

Potenti Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Second bottle in less than a week and this is a smokeshow. Pure Cab. Such a good wine. What a nose. Tobacco, cigar, not Marlboro, awesome layered cassis, ripe berry, so ebullient, better aromas than my first bottle. This is really something else. Mint, raspberry. So complex and inviting. Palate is just so silky and structured. Concentrated like a mofo and man is it pure and juxtaposed with such intense minerality and it is mega fresh because it’s Tuscan Cabernet. Superb. Just superb. So hard to get wines like this right. Tuscan soul, Bordeaux heart, Ca cab 70’s brain. Like a Graves/St. Estephe cross. Gravelly and woodsy. Really tows that line between ripeness and freshness so well. — 10 days ago

Chocky soufflé made by my soul mate, Anne-Marie. Nothing is better than this, although the Plumpjack is rock solid. Prior notes apply. — 17 days ago
