Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Not much age between the Napa wines in the 15-wine lineup tonight. An 06 Bucella, a 74 BV Georges Latour, a 95 Seavey, a 2011 Wm. Harrison, and this one. This one won the "youthful ager" award of the night. Decanted in a swan-neck decanter, this wine had immense fruit forward notes and spice. Edges had rounded nicely. This wine was dark, full bodied, dense, and tasted like a 2010 or 2012. Excellent wine. The finish was still a bit tannic although an hour in the decanter really did help to elongate the finish. With the way this one was drinking tonight, this one has probably 10-20 years ahead of it. Drink or hold! — 5 years ago

This baby wine will be all grown up and ready to drink in 5 to 10 years. I'll leave the rest of the case until 2020+ — 6 years ago

Hyde Vineyard Merlot 2012

The nose was very Vicks, viable heat and yield signs....a bit ripe but it rounded out very well after 90 min in the decanter. Certainly a "different" expression of merlot. I defy you to identify it blind. Definitely a hold but worth a re-visit in 2-3 years. There is something here. — 7 years ago
