A beast of a wine! Needed that extra time in bottle but ready to pop and drink for those of you that have this vintage. Big extraction and flavor that this wine is know for. — a day ago

So close to being WOTN but just beat out by the 2010 Buccella. Deep and dark ruby red. Tons of cassis, blackberries, and thick baking spices. A little something dirty too almost like a strong cheese. Heavy tannins (8/10) with a powerful body, close to the Buccella but needs time to beef up a bit. Lots of cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, cassis and black raspberries on the palate. Killer structure and lots of balance for being so young. Super long finish. So good we had to go back and order the rest of our allocation! Drink from 2018 till 2036+. Approachable now but needs a couple hour decant. (97+) — 5 years ago

@Greg Ballington I literally bought a case after my 1st sip of it. Insanely lush with a gorgeous nose. @David A Lentine I got to thank my Bud David for that hookup!!

Napa Valley Merlot 2013

This is a Cabernet drinker’s Merlot! Pleasant bouquet with oak and red fruit - good tannic structure complements the natural softness of the cassis, bing cherry, and a hint of chocolate on the palette. A real winner!! — 9 months ago

Artist Series #19 Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Stood up surprisingly well next to the Buccella. Baking spice, earth, black fruit, and cranberries. A little tart and gritty on the finish but overall really solid. — 4 years ago

Rich American oak on the nose and palate. Abound with dark fruit flavors and herbaceousness. Lighter as it sits on the palate than the nose — 5 years ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

@David L Thanks bud for the incredible hookup! I've never had this wine. It's a stunning 2010 which is a vintage that I do. It have a lot of. Pop and poured and am letting evolve in the glass. I'll revisit my notes at the end of the night. Right off the bat......,this is better than the 06 Buccella that we had the other night. A little tight but a freakishly long finish. Big lush mouthfeel., some tannins that I think will integrate over time and beautiful dark lush fruit prancing on my palate.
Thank you sir!!!
