Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Tim Mondavi’s master piece! This is my 2014 Continuum. One word: FANTABULOUS! Sage mountain vineyard in 2014 was incredible for cabernet! This is the best cab Ive had all year! Who says you dont always get what you pay for? 225 dollars of pure ecstasy in a glass! Wow. Fig newton dipped in grape jelly on the nose. Dark berries fill the palate followed by black pepper and dark chocolate . It is as velvety smooth as it gets. The oak and tree moss come through on the finish with a slight tingle on the corners of the lips and cheeks. The finish is dry and lingers with even more complexity! Cigar box, mineral rich soil, Black licorice, and grape jelly again! Goodness. I have been waiting on this one for a long time and I am so glad it is as good as I thought it would be. I just wish I had someone to share it with!!! — a month ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

1hr+ decant. Dark red color. Lively nose and wine with baking spices, dark fruit, graphite, and a little tobacco/cigar box. Finish was a little short, but had a lovely texture. Very similar to the ‘10 Continuum we had as well. I loved both! — a year ago

Booker Vineyard

Vertigo Paso Robles Grenache Blend 2015

This is so plush and well balanced...the nose is restrained with light tea leaves and pencil lead, followed by silky dark fruits, menthol, and delicate spice that flow seamlessly across the palate...finishes long with tannins that grip just enough to let you know they are there, but not so much to disrupt the satisfying continuum of flavor.... — 2 years ago

Novicium Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

11yr Wedding Anniversary! Wine needed a decant but we didn’t have time. Dark purple color. Great nose of cedar, dark cherries, and rustic elements. Was surprised by the olives and meats on the palate. Was very CDP like. Not sure if it’s in a weird spot, an off bottle, or meant to be that type of blend. Wasn’t bad, but not my style. Medium depth and finish. — a month ago

Les Tessons Clos de Mon Plaisir Meursault Chardonnay 2005

2021/4/3 with steamed rock oysters and tagliatelle with baby scallops. This poured a deep yellow, and opened with rather nutty aromas. The inevitable reaction is to agonize over premature oxidation. But, with air and time, youth crept back - as it so often does. There were pungent minerals, buttery pastries and creamy stone fruits. And after all, this is a villages wine from 2005. In the end, I didn’t think was “prematurely” oxidized and enjoyed it a lot. As usual, oxidation (or maturity) is on a continuum. And at this point, I’d rather focus on actually savoring every last bottle of Burgundy I have from the great villages and producers, because the way things have gone with prices, I don’t know how many more I’ll get to enjoy. — a year ago
